Blaster Master Zero for SWITCH and 3DS is 2D platform game by Inti Creates, known from e.g the Azure Strikes Gunvolt series and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. It is another installment of a series, which started in 1988.
Jason Frudnick, a skilled scientist, discovers a mysterious creature. He calls it Fred and takes it to his laboratory. One day something goes wrong and Fred escapes through a hole, which appeared out of nowhere. Without hesitation, Jason pursues the creature and finds himself in a cave, where he finds an advanced vehicle called Sophia-III. Thus the two begin an unusual adventure.
Blaster Master Zero is an oldschool platform game with two modes of gameplay. The first one utilizes a side view perspective; you jump on platforms, overcome obstacles, and fight enemies with Sophia-III. Sometimes you leave the vehicle and go on foot. This mode utilizes a bird's eye view and the game turns into a simple shooter. Both modes feature boss enemies, such as e.g. a giant flying brain or a mutant crab. Every boss has their own range of attacks, which you have to know in order to succeed.
Blaster Master Zero for SWITCH and 3DS features not only classic gameplay mechanics, but also old-school visuals, inspired by 8-bit productions for consoles. The same can be said about the sound layer.
