Blastar is a space shoot-em-up developed by Core Design exclusively for the Amiga and released in 1993.
The game features impressive graphics, with more than 3MB of images and animated backgrounds. The scrolling is multi-directional so that you will see enemies arriving from all directions. You will need to use the scanner to detect them and destroy them. Your ships must rotate, accelerate, and brake, as in Asteroids.
Unfortunately, the high-quality graphics and fantastic techno soundtrack don't compensate for the inadequate controls, bugged collision detection, and high difficulty level. This is a title that, with some more playtesting and polishing, could have become a masterpiece.
Luckily we can play with trainers now, so things have become much more enjoyable.
