Blaster is a strangely psychedelic title from legend Eugene Jarvis that continues the story of Robotron: 2084 within a unique mashup experience. The game is a first-person space shooter that sends you in search of a lost outpost known as Paradise, following the destruction of the human race by the Robotrons (so, it starts on a high note). Your quest takes you through several distinct stages, including what is essentially a first-person Galaga, a psuedo-3D landscape filled with arches and giant robots, a vaguely Defender-like sequence, and more. It's a satisfying, if somewhat rudimentary, pre-3D space shooter experience that still holds up today, primarily for its over-the-top sensory overload visuals. The original cabinet used a 49-way optical joystick, best emulated with an analog joystick, but works fine with a standard 8-way joystick.
