Majesco's alien-wasting adventure sports a distinctly Contra-like feel; if you're a fan of run-and-gun games that are low on plot and high on action, then look no further: BlowOut is every shoot 'em up fans' dream. Loads of slavering alien mutant-type creatures to blast, huge guns to tote, and labyrinthine levels to explore. Heaven.
The alien-annihilating antics begin in earnest when crack commando John 'Dutch' Cane is summoned to the US Marine Space Force Headquarters after reports of an invasion. The station has been overrun by malevolent mutants, or 'Xenomorphs', who are rapidly dispensing with the humans onboard and making themselves at home.
As Dutch, you'll head out on a killing spree, picking off any hostile creatures you set eyes on - and there are plenty roving around the station's many convoluted rooms, chambers and corridors, waiting to pounce. You'll start out armed with Dutch's trusty machinegun, and go on to acquire an increasingly impressive arsenal of weaponry, such as grenade launchers, flamethrowers, nail guns and missile launchers. Explore ten different locations within the station, and wipe out the multitude of mutants before they locate the control centre and start wreaking havoc on colonised space.
