TeraBlaster

TeraBlaster is a top down game that has a very simple challenge coming with it, and that is to control your ship and use it to destroy all enemies that come in your way. In this game you can engage thousands of foes and your weapons are the only help you can get.

Gameplay

I found TeraBlaster to be very minimalist right off the bat, but don’t expect this to be a simple game, because it’s not. In fact, the title does manage to have a roguelike feel to it, all while implementing an arcade based gameplay that really makes sense here for sure. I am very impressed with the way the gameplay works and to be honest I like the idea of bringing in front one of a kind, quality ideas to the table.

The game does feature a top down shooter mechanic that works quite well, but to be honest the title does manage to get very tough all the time, which can be very demanding especially when the number of foes will always tend to increase.

To be honest, the gameplay is very addictive and you will always try to find more time to stay in this world. I did feel a lack of polish here and there, but most of the time the game does a more than impressive job when it comes to offering something unique, exciting and definitely different to what you can find on Steam.

Since the experience is procedurally generated, you can rarely find two levels that are the same. The game also features a very good OST which is impressive and fun!

Thankfully, there are power-ups in the game, but the main idea is that you have a single Survival mode and you play over again and again. Despite the different maps, it can be quite boring to play after a few hours.

Graphics

TeraBlaster has minimal graphics, but these work great for what it is. Thankfully, the title does bring in front some good animations, and the retro graphics are pretty good. I would have liked it to be a little more detailed, but at the end of the day that’s what matters the most, the ability to bring in front a good gameplay and interesting experiences that are enjoyable and fun.

TeraBlaster is a very simple game, and a small one too since it just has around 5 MB. It’s a great proof of concept and even works nice as a game, but you won’t be able to play it for hours and hours. It does work nice though if you play it from time to time, which is something that you should try out if you want, as the experience will be great for sure. there’s no harm in giving this game a try, especially if you feel the need to challenge yourself!
