Developer: David Stark

Game Description:
Patent Blaster? Let's just say I'm not very fond of the patent system. My way of dealing: making Patent Blaster, a sidescrolling explodey kind of game based on awful patent art come to life. Your mission: invalidate those patents using any means necessary.

    Cinders
    Beat Bros
    Delver's Drop
    Long Live the Queen
    The Floor Is Jelly
    Deo

Normally I'm not a real stickler for graphics if the game is fun. That comes from too many years playing ASCII character based Roguelikes and BBS door games. But this game looks like it was made using graphics stolen from one of the clip art collections from Borland's 1989 program "The Print Shop".

Other than that the jump and shoot mechanics are vaguely reminiscent of one of the greatest arcade games of all time... Moon Patrol. But I just can't get past the graphics on this one. I had to vote no.

Basically ditto for me to everything you just said. It might be fun but I have no interest in playing it looking like that.
