''Blue Stinger'' is a SurvivalHorror game by Climax Graphics released for the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast in 1999. An island is discovered in the year 2000 off the coast of Mexico, where it is thought that the meteorite that killed the dinosaurs had struck. Named Dinosaur Island, the site is mined for the next 18 years, until a second object impacts the island and causes an energy barrier to form around it, sealing it off from the outside world.

Eliot Ballade, a police officer on vacation, is trapped inside the barrier as horrific monsters begin to appear. Ballade must work to find a way out, along with a boat captain named Dogs Bower, a computer expert named Janine King, and a strange water spirit known as {{Nephilim}}.

As with ''VideoGame/OverBlood'' and ''VideoGame/{{Galerians}}'', there's a good chance you know of this game from Game Informer's [[LetsPlay Super Replay]].
!!This work contains examples of:
* BodyHorror: Most of the enemies appear to have mutated from the island personnel. [[spoiler:Eliot also begins to mutate at one point, although you manage to cure him.]]
* CameraScrew: Averted in the Japanese version (where camera angles are fixed), but other releases of the game have typical third-person shooter camera controls. However, this leads to the camera sometimes getting stuck in awkward positions, and also makes some segments near the end that require precision movements more difficult than need be.
* DungeonBypass: After defeating the first boss, there is a maze of ice blocks. It is possible to melt the ice and just swim across the now-empty room, but doing this means fighting a tough mini-boss (see HarmlessFreezing below).
* DungeonTown
* AnEconomyIsYou
* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:Jascony, the final boss. To sum it, up the meteorite that crashed onto Earth and caused the extinction of dinosaurs was actually an egg. An egg that took 65 million years to mature. Then it took 18 years to hatch, the final stage of the eclosion occurring right as you're near it, letting you face a humungous, Godzilla-esque monstrosity. Which was also [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu absurdly vulnerable to your rocket launcher]].]]
* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler: After Dogs and Elliot save the world from the final boss it shows another Meteor identical to the one that held the boss monster inside it that was defeated surrounded by a ring of the blue creatures before the meteor launches off to get a headstart to another planet before one of the multiple stingers goes after it.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Dogs can equip shirts that teach him martial arts.
* HarmlessFreezing: In the cold storage area, there is a large monster encased in ice. Should the temperature be set too high, it will thaw out and you will have to fight it.
* HyperactiveMetabolism: Eliot and Dogs take only a few bites of food items before throwing them over their shoulders.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Eliot can find a "power mixer", which is basically a large immersion blender.
* LateToTheTragedy
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Dogs threatens to do this to Eliot when the latter becomes mutated.]]
* MoneySpider
* OrganicTechnology: Robotic fish are somehow vulnerable to poison. Hm...
* ProductPlacement: For ''Pen Pen [=TriIcelon=]'', another obscure Dreamcast game.
* StealthPun: In order to get into the Hello Market, you need a Hello Card. [[spoiler: Also known as a greeting card.]]
* TimedMission: You have 42 minutes to get the dying man his medication. [[spoiler:And 30 minutes to keep Eliot from mutating into a monster.]]
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Takes place in 2018...
* {{Zeerust}}: ...but it looks more like the '90s with more advanced technology.
