T.E Plays: Bloody Wolf

During the late eighties Data East made a streak of ‘commando on a mission’ games to capitalise on the growing demand for such titles. Following the success of SNK’s popular coin-op Ikari Warriors, Data East published their own take on the genre firstly with Midnight Resistance in 1987 and then Bloody Wolf the year after, the latter soon found its way onto the home console with an exclusive port for the PC Engine released in 1989. The game was a remixed version of the original featuring bigger levels, a tweaked storyline, and the addition of one extra stage.
