Blood is a first-person shooter using the Build engine. It uses a later version of the engine than that used for Duke Nukem 3D, and includes new features such as 3D sprites and sector-over-sector. These new features are somewhat early in development however, and lack the refinement later found in Shadow Warrior. This can be seen by the somewhat jerky transition between sector-over-sector rooms, with similar transitions being seamless in Shadow Warrior.
