Sanguine 2 is a platforming game where you play as Eleanor, a vampire who abducts humans to drink their blood. While you must be sneaky to get the drop on people, monsters have begun to run rampant and must be destroyed with your axe. Once you find the chain, you can hook into any surface and traverse the land in new ways.

The game has has three overworlds with four levels and a boss lair within each, along with secret locations and power ups. Collect keys from completing levels or discovering secrets to unlock the boss lair of each world. Souls can be found throughout levels, for without them, your dying will send you into the death world where you'll need to climb your way back out and harvest more souls.

Arrows - Movement & Duck
S - Jump & Grab Ledge
D - Attack
C - Chain
Ctrl or Click Corner Gem - Pause and open game menu

All controls can be rebound in the game menu, though beware of some keyboards not inputing certain key combinations being pressed at the same time! The key config menu will flash keys as they are pressed, so if one of them won't flash while another is held down, try binding different keys.

Update 1.0.1 - Added a lantern to the bridge on world 1 to help players identify it as an enterable level. Added text to the key config so players will know that it lets them configure their hotkeys. Added two helper gravestones to instruct players on bouncing off sprockets and grabbing ledges. Shaved 4 frames of the startup of the chain twirl, I'd doubt you'd notice!

Update 1.0.2 - Potential bugfix for a rare freeze glitch on the overworld.

Update 1.0.3 - Added a music toggle to the main menu. Eleanor's movement slows down faster (minor) when no keys are pressed, on the ground, and without blood.

Update 1.0.4 - The chain is significantly faster, but now causes less lift. Air attack landing lag has been removed. Sliding has been decreased by a slight but notable amount. Minor adjustments to later levels to make them easier.

Update 1.0.5+6 - Fixed issues with the chain in numerous levels. Slight adjustments to movement physics (again). Fixed a bug that didn't let you change directions on the opening frames of an air attack. Deleted/Altered some cosmetic doors that were causing confusion. Adjusted Iron Maidens attack speed and Banshee spawns.

Not too bad, good graphics and music. It jsut takes me awhile to get where I want to go and get the drop on victims. Neat game though.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

this game is really interesting and has good gameplay , sprites , and music but its challenging at times but besides this game is really good :D


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I really like the game.

Like the ''Exlipse''s review. Its something missing in the game. And its the medal system.
Medal system really gives a reason to play for us. If the game doesn't have a deep story.

But it is still great. I really love playing as a vampire charcter. Also ''drinking blood'' thing.

Love the pixels! I hope you make a medal system or a sequel for this beauty

When I started to play I was wondering why such a good game received a rating below 4? But now after 10 minutes of playing I understand why, it's challenging but I don't feel like I want to beat it. Like there's something missing. Concept, character, music and art are really good, but for some reason I don't enjoy it

RayBeckham responds:

I'd love to be able to sit in and watch people play without instructing them on anything. And they could say anything to me. Games of this type are usually built by a team of people and shown to their friends and family. Aside from a few Newgrounders, this game went straight from my PC to the internet.

It feels like half of the people really like the game and the other half it just doesn't work for, and it's frustrating as I try to improve my art. I feel like if I tried to appeal to everyone, i'd just create generic crap that I wouldn't feel passionate about and, well, that doesn't work out when it takes months to years to churn out one of these games.

I don't know, bud. I wish I could have pulled through for ya. I'd like to think I could make a Sanguine 3 some day, and i've got these neat ideas in my head... but I can't help but wonder if I go through all the motions and get the whole thing finished and people are just lukewarm about it? Right now, all I have to go off of is "the concept was good, the characters and music were good, but I didn't like it and wasn't compelled to finish it". I don't know, maybe I should be doing something else.
