Blaster Master Zero

A blend of a 2D platformer and a simple shoot'em-up game by Inti Creates. The production is another installment in the series, which started in 1988. The protagonists are skilled scientist Jason Frudnick and Fred, a mysterious creature he discovered. When the latter escapes the laboratory, Jason pursues him. He ends up in a cave, where he found a battle-ready advanced vehicle called Sophia-III. Blaster Master Zero features two modes of gameplay. The first one is a classic platform game utilizing a side view perspective; in this part, you have to avoid traps, overcome obstacles, and sometimes fight with enemies. However, Jason often leaves his vehicle. The perspective switches then to bird's eye view, and the protagonist has to battle opponents. Both modes feature boss enemies, such as a mutant crab or a giant brain. The game features oldschool 8-bit visuals.
