Sonic Blast Man


sgm0121 - Developed by ITL Co., Ltd. and Published by Taito America Corporation, "Sonic Blast Man" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1992. Sonic Blast Man is a rare enjoyable 3rd-Person Perspective, Side-Scrolling fighting shooter game with some cool twists. The game scenario is that you are this hero from another planet and your evil twin "Heavy Blast Man" has been up to no good in the universe. Your job is to put an end to his dastardly deeds. Each level features very unique enemies and an atmosphere suited to the area. For example, punks that hang out in the street will be loitering in the first area, while deranged robots will be found in the mad scientist's lab. You must battle through five stages of your brother's evil minions, facing the obligatory boss at the end of each. Enemies have a life bar, and when it gets low and turns purple, they are ripe to be finished off. Sonic Blast man can punch, jump, and kick, but he also has two special power moves (Dynamite Punch and Screw Bomb) which you'll love. Pressing B makes him jump, while using B in conjunction with the control pad he will jump toward the left or right. You can do a combination jump-kick by pressing B to jump and then Y while in the air. You will obtain valuable powerups by picking up Super Gloves, the Sonic Helmet and money bags. This game is not just a mind;less beat-em up, it requires skill and strategy if you want to make it to the end and save the universe. The graphics are good, with large decent sprites and background designs. What's more, once you get to the laboratory and spaceship stages, the backgrounds are very interesting and of a higher quality. The sound is also good, each level having its own unique melody. But where Sonic Blastman really excels is in the gameplay and controls. All in all, Sonic Blast Man for SNES is an entertaining, fun above-average side-scrolling fighter game that I thoroughly enjoyed. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included. Rarity Rating "B-" - Sonic Blast Man for SNES game review by "Prince" NES Gamer.
