Hey Poor Player (Oct 12, 2016)
Nova Blast looks absolutely gorgeous – there is no doubting that it’s one of the best looking games on the ColecoVision. The well designed backdrops really set the scene and the clearly defined sprites don’t get lost amongst the detail. Even more impressively: it has super smooth parallax scrolling, something you definitely don’t see too often on this machine. Imagic also did a more than adequate job with the arcade-like sound effects. When you also factor in the nice little touches like the mission names and presentation screens, it all adds up to make an absorbing and challenging shooter. Nova Blast ranks up there with the very best game available for the ColecoVision and you will be playing it for a very long time to come.
TeleMatch (Feb, 1984)
Nova Blast enthält sicher die eine oder andere neue Variante, unterscheidet sich aber kaum von den meisten Exemplaren dieses Spieletyps. Ein farbenprächtiger Himmel allein führt nicht zur Steigerung des Spielwertes. Treffen oder getroffen werden, das ist — Hamlet, verzeih! — erneut die Devise.
All Game Guide (1998)
Nova Blast is a solid shooter based on an interesting concept. It gets tiresome after extended play, but you'll enjoy it for a time.
The Video Game Critic (Nov 18, 2001)
Although it's probably the most original aspect of Nova Blast, the process of transferring energy is tedious and not the least bit fun. The rapid-fire shooting action is better, but the bomb controls are weak and trying to hit your target can prove frustrating. Overall, Nova Blast is too generic to hold my interest.
