Sunsoft was one of the major third-party developers of the NES era, and Blaster Master was arguably the company’s most enduring hit, spawning quite a series of spin-offs, sequels, and remakes, very certainly including the much-maligned Fester’s Quest. Sunsoft declined rapidly after the third generation came to a close, however, and, while the company still exists today, its last release of any significance was 2003’s Clock Tower 3. Blaster Master Zero, a comprehensive reimagining of the 1988 original, was licensed out to the Japanese action-platformer specialists at Inti Creates, who have attempted to recreate the magic of the NES original while simultaneously bringing the gameplay into the modern era. Well, that was the plan, anyhow; so did it work?
