Matter Blaster 2
Unleash chaos on your monitor in this game. You control 'rabid, planet gobbling antimatter
droids from the land of infinity'. The idea is to go around and blast the other players,
computer controlled or otherwise into next Tuesday with a variety of weapons that can be picked
up in the playing field. The graphics are simple, but it's still fun to watch hundreds of shots
bounce across the screen and explode. To liven things up (as if there wan't enough action),
obstacles such as turrets, ice and exploding blocks have been placed to make getting around more
The game comes with a level editor and a weapons editor. It also allows you to change quite a
number of settings, making it highly configurable. It also features mouse and joystick suppoprt.
However, the less than par graphics can make locating your droid when all hell breaks loose
rather irritating. Also, you are automatically transported to another part of the playing field
with a new droid every time your old one blows up, and it's again hard to find the tiny little
droid when this happens. Overall, it makes for a fun game when you bring your friends over.
