I wasn’t familiar with this game until I started going through a list of Zeppelin titles to obtain the endings for this site. Once of the games was Master Blaster, which turned out to be an Asteroids type game, but with less of an immediate arcade feel. It got a little repetitive as the end drew ever closer, and there wasn’t much variety to really keep my gaming urges stimulated. Though saying that, I did play through to the end!
The final docking sequence.
Your ship comes in to land.
Slowly getting closer.
Our hero disembarks.
The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I used a trainer version of the game that offered me infinite everything! Unfortunately, it still meant me having to play all the way through. Needless to say that I pumped the speed up to 500%.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once you have docked the ship for the final time, you see your ship flying back to base and landing. At which point, our hero disembarks from the ship and heads for base. The end message reads: “CONGRATULATIONS. ALL SECTORS CLEARED.”
Vinny: Considering that a lot of the other Zeppelin titles had either a cack ending or no ending at all, this is a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, there isn’t an ending tune or epilogue and so you left with a feeling of wanting something more.
Brendan Phoenix: I’m docking it points for that terrible high pitch whine!
The little animated ending is ok and shows a bit of effort, however it then reverts to type and we get the ever so familiar standard congratulations message – surely we could have had some game ending text? 5/10.
Andy Vaisey: Well, it’s an ending so bonus points for bothering, but much like the game, it’s lacks imagination and is boring.
Kungfufurby: Is there supposed to be no sound in the ending? The sound freezes.
Other than that, nice ending.
FINAL SAY: Take a look, but don’t expect anything too dynamic.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10

  1. Pretty decent for a budget game. Gives closure, at any rate, and better than a fair few full-price endings I could think of.
