Blaster Master Jr., known as Blaster Master Boy in North America and Bomber King: Scenario 2 (ボンバーキング シナリオ2) in Japan, is an action video game developed by Aicom and published by Sunsoft. The game was released in 1991 for Game Boy. Gameplay and premise: Players control Jason, the protagonist of Blaster Master, with his car Sophia not present. Players have various abilities, including making Jason fire a gun and plant bombs that can be used to damage enemies and environment. Players will encounter power-ups that will allow Jason to clear obstacles. Players can also upgrade their weapons with other power-ups. Each stage features an exit that requires a key and a boss behind that exit. Development: It is a sequel to Robowarrior, a spin-off title in the Bomberman series by Hudson Soft. However, the game was marketed in western territories as a game in the Blaster Master series by Sunsoft. Aside from the title change, the game is the same in all regions. Reception: Hardcore Gaming 101 felt that the game was decent for a Game Boy title, but that they would not replay it due to being unremarkable. They speculated that the name change was due to a similarity between Blaster Master's overhead stages and these.
