Bloodlust is a Metroidvania platformer for Macintosh...


...As well as an experiment in something akin to distributed computing.

At the time of the game's release, a £1,000,000 prize was on offer for the first person to solve the Eternity puzzle. Despite one estimate that a million computers guessing randomly wouldn't solve it within the lifetime of the universe, Bloodlust used spare CPU cycles to give it the old college try.

This is important!!!
When you finish playing,
please read the Eternity
section in the help me file

(The contest was won in 2000 by a pair of mathematicians, so don't bother configuring your server farm to run SheepShaver.)
