Aero Blasters Video:
Aero Blasters has all the standard elements that you have come to expect. Starting you off over a pleasant looking cityscape (with some nice parallax scrolling), you are out to blast everything in sight. Your ship is equipped with a standard front-firing weapon, but destroying a power-up craft gives you a whole range of add-ons that fly out of the wreckage at you. None of these are particularly impressive to look at, and some even seem like more of a curse than a blessing - so choose wisely.
Also to help you is a power up meter at the top of the screen. When you hold down the charge button, this powers up the ship until you are able to release a quick flash of energy, destroying bullets and most of the smaller enemies in one shot.
Aero Blasters game does a few things to separate it from the pack. The most noticeable is that in stages four and five, you'll be in zero gravity. If you move to the right, you'll keep moving until you push the control pad/joystick in a different direction.
For the most part, the level design is pretty standard stuff, but there are a few exceptions. One of the best parts in the game is having to navigate through some very fast moving tunnels - especially if you missed the barrier power-up.
