Blaster is blessed with blocky 3D graphics on-rails flying action featuring giant, bipedal robots, gates that the player can fly through for points/bonuses, and a trip through an asteroid field.  With four unique stages the game features plenty of variety.  According to the game’s intro, Blaster is actually a sequel to much more successful (and much less ambitious) Robotron 2084.

Blaster was inducted on April 29th, 2009.
