Default [Amayirot Akago] Cold Blooded

I am looking for a game I had on a PC PowerPlay/PC User or similar magazine demo disc from the 90’s. It wasn’t a playable demo, but a short advertisement video to promote the game. The main character was blue/purple I think with a helmet and I’m almost certain the end punch line was “cold blooded”. I have searched and found that a game called Cold Blooded exists, but it isn’t that. I also think the main character narrating it was smoking.

The game was available or advertised in the 90’s. From previous investigations of similar games I had on these dics, it was around 1994.

PC specs: around Pentuim 1,2,3 era.
OS: Windows 95, Windows 98, DOS
Graphics: colour cartoon videos then the gameplay was top down shooter from what I can remember.
Music: CD type audio
Speech: In videos yes, gameplay, not sure.
Game perspective: Top down

All help greatly appreciated.

Reminds me of the Crusader: No remorse serie of games. But that's a longshot with your description.

Good suggestion! I looked at screen shots and videos, doesn't look like it. Crusader is isometric grpahics where I think the one I am looking for is directly top down.

Thanks. Had a look at both, screenshots and videos. Unfortunately doesn't look like it's either of them.

Operation Carnage has the protagonist in blue armour and with a helmet.

This could have easily been the one, I can't find any video intro like the one that I saw though. And the promo video that I saw was too good to not be animation clips from the game. I like the look of Operation Carnage though.

The animation you remember, was it hand-drawn like early animated movies/TV/etc, or was it computer-generated ("3D") like was just starting to become popular at that time?

Hand drawn from what I could tell and remember.

Hmm, maybe your game is on this list (DOS top-down shooters).
