Blue Stinger is an action survival horror game released in 1999 for the Dreamcast game console. It was localized in North America by Activision.
It was released in North America nine days before the Dreamcast.
The environments in Blue Stinger are entirely 3D, something that, at the time, was a rarity.
Players heal themselves in real-time using food and drinks bought from vending machines, forcing players to heal only when it was safe. Combat consists of purchasing weapons and ammunition in the same manner, including swords, rocket launchers, Napalm launchers and triple-barreled shotguns. Eliot starts out with a pistol while Dogs starts with a crossbow.
