Laser Blast - Box

DescriptionSubmit Description
In David Crane's Laser Blast you are a spaceship blasting away at enemy bases, which appear in intervals of three, while they blast right back at you. This is a game that requires speed, accuracy and a long attention span. While Laser Blast has a reputation as a repetitive and not terribly challenging game, the game select switch allows the difficulty to ramp up very quickly. Back when Laser Blast was released, if you managed to score 100,000 points or higher you could receive a Federation of Laser Blasters Patch. A score of a million points, which would turn your on-screen score into "!!!!!!", would earn you a patch adorned with those same exclamation marks. (Contributed by panda_racer)
