Blaster Master (NES) Randomizer?
« on: March 13, 2019, 02:56:05 am »
I'm trying to decide what I should work on next (now that Metroid II EJRTQ is released). Would you be interested in a randomizer for Blaster Master NES that randomizes level order, bosses and locations, and powerups?

Could be fun, but I feel like it'd be difficult to make it work properly given how strongly tied together the stage gating and powerups are.

That's why it would require altering the stages based on the randomization to allow the zones to be reached in different ways.

I would play with a Blaster Master Randomizer, I hope you can pull off the overhead levels can be changed too.  :cookie:

Hi have you considered adding battery save or password support? I've always felt this game is incomplete without it. I know emulators save your progress but I was thinking in terms of doing it for the challenge (just because you can). If there's a game that could benefit from this feature is Blaster Master.
