The original Blood on DOS is a personal favorite of this writer. A doom-like game with fun additions like the iconic tommy gun and dynamite sticks you’ll be taking down hell cultists while running really fast. The game has been ported to a faithfully-made new engine to bring it up to 2019’s PCs while packaging the full game.
