Illbleed (イルブリード) is a survival horror game for the Sega Dreamcast.

Illbleed was originally set to be published by Sega in 2000, but Sega of America initially turned the game down on quality grounds[4]. Sega still published the game in Japan in 2001.

Story

After Eriko told your unhappy childhood at school, she recived a ticked (incluing her friends) from the horror park called Illbleed and decided to not go there due of her trauma of horror parks. After she knew her friends did not returned, Eriko decided to go to the park to rescue then.

Gameplay

To advance between levels, you need to kill all enemies (you need to find a weapon first) and checking the environment to advoid the traps.

To check a trap, the player need to uses these senses: smell, sight, hearing and the sixth sense (requires the Jump Pack).

The character dies if she/he get a heart attack due of the traps or when the HP bar is empty. When all playable characters died, the game ends.
