View Full Version : Blood and other Build games...help me out!

Now that the Build games are becoming playable on XP with ports, I'm starting to go back and purchase the Build games.

Can you help me out here?

How many Build games were there?

I picked up Shadow Warrior for 99 cents(full legal licensed version) off Ebay.

Today, I bought "Blood: Cryptic Passage" new in box for 99 cents. Is that a good deal? Blood on the other hand, I do not have yet and it looks like that will put me back some bucks.

What about the "Plasma packs" for Blood?

Was Red Neck Rampage a Build game and was it decent?

I'd prefer to pick up the Build games that were decent. Of course, Duke 3d(which I have), Shadow Warrior, Blood and possibly Red Neck Rampage. Any other useful info or recommendations would be greatful. Thanks. http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

You can download blood free at the underdogs, if that's any help.

Blood may be pricey but it's a definite buy. The best build game made IMO. Cryptic is the better expansion, the level design is kick ass. Plasma has some cool moments and a lot of the levels are from the Blood alpha.

Redneck Rampage is pretty funny, an okay game. It's a matter of opinion cause some people love it. I would say look into it but you want to try the demo first.

You can get the demo to any Build game from Jonof's website. Here's a link, gives every build game made. And demos to them.
