    Hemoglobin is a first person horror demo taking place in a hospital after something terrible has happened. The hospital is abandoned and you have to find the key to the front door, but you aren't alone...

    Conclusion:
    There is one serious bug in Hemoglobin but it happens randomly... the game will load and you can't move at all. Since its only a 30-60 minute demo, its not a huge deal to just start over, but this can be frustrating. It only happened to me one time at the end of the demo. Besides that, it ran perfectly as everything is low quality and should run on just about any laptop or netbook.
