The Making of ‘Blast Corps’

Published: Last Updated on

Blast Corps is a brilliant concept for a puzzle game featuring a very simple objective: destroy a series of buildings using a variety of unique demolition vehicles, mainly in order to clear a path for a truck carrying a pair of defective nuclear missiles. It may sound simple, and in the early stages it is, but as the game progresses, it can be a bit difficult to control and unlike traditional puzzle games, you have only mere seconds to react before it all goes wrong. While the graphics are a bit dated, it remains a blast to play and makes for an awesomely re-playable experience. Blast Corps was a breath of fresh air across the seemingly never-ending sequels released on the N64 and an evolution of the destroy-’em-up-genre, taking everything we love about games like Rampage and ushering it into the 64 era. We discussed the game at length on a recent episode of the NXpress podcast, but with our month-long spotlight on Rare winding down, I thought it would be fun to share this video about the making of the game, courtesy of the folks over at Game Korner. Enjoy!
