With an art style inspired by the 80s and the 90s, FullBlast is a vertical-scrolling shooter that brings a dose of nostalgia to all gamers who spent many an hour at their local arcade engaging in Shmups. It features a modern and vibrant presentation that is the perfect way to introduce a new generation of gamers to this genre.
Being a shmup, it’s not just an alien menace you have to worry about; you also have to be cognizant of their projectiles, which you’ll need to dodge if you hope to survive. Across the game’s 12 random levels, humanity is on the verge of extinction due to an alien invasion and it just so happens, you’re the last hope to save the world.
FullBlast is a fun, challenging game that is visually appealing. At $6 on Nintendo’s eShop, it’s a reasonably priced option for those looking to pick up a modern take on a classic game style.
