Forward to the Past Plazma Burst review
If your’e in the mood for a nice retro multi-slayer cosmonaut type game you should give Plazma Burst a try, also called a blast from the past it has all the elements of a 1980′s arcade shooting game. Action packed from the word go with 16 layers of fulfillment, Plazma Burst is jammed with goodies in terms of game money that you earn as reward points and the gimmicks these can purchase….these include pistols,rifles, shot guns and rocket launchers. Some spice is also added with imaginary weapons like Plasma Cannons and plazma shocks. Of course some simulation effects are taken into consideration on defense goodies with a simple helmet and some armor….may be required if you want to go all the way.
You may want to start off with the ‘Easy’ option , as the game comes with three levels of difficulty. However, you’d find playing for keeps at the ‘Hard’ level as you tend to keep your score on the global leader boards a little longer. Whats interesting is the subtle features Eric Gurht has added to give the game a cold war era effect…for one your enemy is always blue blooded, two is a subtle depiction of cold war colors on the enemy.
The game also sports some David vs. Goliath type action, or is it Darth Vader, at least seemingly! Although the theme sounds like a Karen Carpenter interplanetary escapade, it does have an element of violence and blood shed which ironically can be controlled basis your taste for savage violence.The background music incidentally is by akustik and not Karen. The built in controls for the game naturally use the left and right arrows to make your way around left or right, a bit like toy story when you jump cause you need to press both spacebar and the up arrow. You can bend down by pressing the shift button and the down arrow and you actually need to get the sequencing right before you try out the fire power. If you have enough points to buy upgrades , you can choose your weapons basis their numbers depicted by keying in any number from one to nine. Press enter or G to launch a grenade and P if you want to take a pee break.
The game has a sad story line attached, something about your race being destroyed and you need revenge, so you take up this inter galaxy mission but end up with the wrong enemy…an enemy nevertheless. With a very sensitive angular point and click type fire power the game does entertain and bring out the Buzz Lightyear in you. It gets interesting when you earn the level that gives you a cool buggy….then as though by competitive forces, drones are out to get you and your buggy…Jeff Bezos were you playing this game when you had your kidney stones attacked and rescued by the Ecuadorian navy? The NPR blog stated ‘Every superhero has his origins from the declaration of vision ‘…which has its origins from the games people play. So i do hope you relax this weekend and take a ride through the past with some real free retro gaming….it pays to unwind.
