Blast Corps


n64gm192 - Developed by Rare, Ltd. and Published by Nintendo of America Inc., "Blast Corps" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on March 31, 1997. This is a 3rd-person perspective arcade game inspired by the classic from the 1980's. The plot centers around good-verses-evil. Two neighboring countries are in the midst of war. Players control one of two Bionic Commandos; who serves the good country, Karinia. Your goal is to overthrow the tyrannical Avar Empire which is planning a large-scale assault on the Commandos' home turf. You will use vehicles to destroy buildings in the path of a runaway nuclear missile carrier. In the game's 57 levels, the player solves puzzles by transferring between vehicles to move objects and bridge gaps.Blast Corps was among Rare's first for the Nintendo 64. Its development team ranged between four and seven members, many of whom were recent graduates. The team sought to find gameplay to fit Rare co-founder Chris Stamper's idea for a building destruction game. The puzzle game mechanics were inspired by those of Donkey Kong (1994). Blast Corps was released to universal acclaim and received Metacritic's second highest Nintendo 64 ratings of 1997. The game sold one million copies—lower than the team's expectations—and received several editor's choice awards. Reviewers highly praised its originality, variety, and graphics, but some critiqued its controls and repetition. Reviewers of Rare's 2015 Rare Replay retrospective compilation noted BlastCorps as a standout title. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included.
