Summary

Full blast will not blow you out the water or introduce you to a new “Game changer” mechanic but what it will do is entertain you for a couple of hours, Net you an easy Platinum and give you a solid score chaser if that’s your bag. Levels do outstay there welcome quickly and enemies are all the same with little in the way of randomized attacks os expect people to learn level layouts and destroy the leaderboards. That said it plays well and is a good shout for the Vita version.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
