Viewed from above and set in space, Blastar is a multi-directionally scrolling shoot 'em up. Each of the 12 levels have aliens coming at you in all directions, and you must use the scanner to see where they are, and fly around taking them out. The ship has heavy inertia, so you can't brake and steer instantly. Contact with aliens weakens your ship, and eventually costs you one of your 3 lives. The game features a full techno soundtrack, with 1 Megabyte of sound and 3 Megabytes of graphics - both high figures for an OCS game. The playing area totals 400 screens, with animated backgrounds


Blastar Amiga The title screen.
Blastar Amiga The first level. Enemies can be seen as yellow dots on the scanner in the right corner.
Blastar Amiga Using a smart-bomb to kill all enemies on the screen at once.
Blastar Amiga The first boss. It's almost impossible to see it, because it looks just like the background...
