Blood Moon is connected to the two previous installments very lightly in terms of the plot. Even so, the game provides a nice recap of all the events before Blood Moon quite clearly at the start. We did not find the story in Blood Moon to be especially thrilling; it is based on the same-old concept just with the Jaguars this time.
Blood Moon is a perfect balance between fantasy and horror; while it is not creepy and all, it does consist of a few dark moments. The graphics in Blood Moon are up to the standard of a Collector’s Edition game; colorful, sharp and pleasant on the eye. The special effects are not mind-blowing, but they do not look cheap either. We enjoyed the accompany of the music throughout the game as it suits the game well; however, the voice overs are a little flat which drained out the excitement in the game at times.
Nonetheless, do not expect everything to be so realistic and logical in Blood Moon. This game is full of interactions and moments that do not really make sense, items that do not belong where they belonged and alike. Elefun delivers well on the gameplay features; a much-needed interactive map, hidden objects vs Mahjong, a tamed Jaguar helper and a custom difficulty choice.
On the other hand, Blood Moon is not as fun as it could be due to the lack of any challenges in the game. The puzzles come in a wide variety, mostly with minimal difficulty. Hidden object scenes are not terribly challenging and the gameplay is nothing innovative or complicated. In Collector’s Edition, the game comes with tons of collectibles to collect which is perhaps the most challenging part of the game.
