Master Blaster II
Master Blaster II is a Bomberman/Dynablaster type game, you have to kill all the enemys by
dropping bombs, and as the bombs blow up the walls around you they can reveal power-ups, which
you can then collect.
Power-ups include the usual stuff like an extra bomb to drop, bigger bomb explosions, speed
up, kick bombs and remote controlled bombs, but there are also some others which are quite
interesting. Such as: a ghost which will turn you invisible and enable you to walk through
anything, a Yin-Yan which will let you survive an explosion, Pneumatic hammer which will allow
you to destroy walls by walking into them and quite a few more. You can also collect coins, at
the end of each game you can then spend them in the shop, this allows you to buy power-ups so
you will have them for the start of the next game, which is quite good.
Although the graphics for the levels are always the same the graphics for the character can
be changed, anything from a punk to a robocop type thing! Also the game includes instructions on
how to make a multi-player device, the device works like a multi-tap, allowing you to connect
multiple joysticks/pads for use with the game, which is really great.
The only bad thing about the game is that some times when you have multiple people on the
keyboard and you drop a bomb, sometimes you drop two, but it's no big thing. Also it seems that
you move a little faster left and right than you do up and down, but I think thats the way the
map is layed out. - Dean Hughes
