Blaster Master Zero

Postby EOJ » Sun Mar 12, 2017 3:21 am

I bought this the other day and I can't stop playing. It is REALLY good. I remember the original game back in the day but I could never beat it. This is a lot easier, but still tons of fun. I'm playing on 3DS for the crisp 240p and d-pad controls, but it's also available on Switch.

I've played about 6 hours, probably nearing the end.

That does look pretty cool. Downloadable on Switch I assume?

Yep, downloadable. Only ten bucks, or 980yen on the Japanese shop (that's where I bought it). I just finished the game, took me about 8.5 hours. Totally rad from start to finish. You can choose English or Japanese language in the options.

I really recommend playing it on a New 3DS XL, the pixel art looks soooo nice in 240p, and the d-pad controls are great (no d-pad on a Switch).

No DS here... again, my kid has one. Might steal his. He rarely plays it. :D

Your kid has all the good stuff! ;) I wonder if he might like this game? The difficulty is a bit tame, and it's a great intro to Metroidvanias and classic pixel art.
