TransBot (1985)

by on Aug.10, 2020, under RetroLOLs

TransBot, known in Japan as Astro Flash (アストロフラッシュ), is a video game for the Sega Master System originally released in 1985. It is a sci-fi-themed shoot ’em up inspired by Transformers. Back in the solar year 2000 there was a nuclear war, and people are finally now emerging from underground to build a new society. But something is still wrong. DALAUS, a leftover computer from the old world is creating its own empire, and it is up to the player to stop it.

Now TransBot is a game I seem to remember fondly playing as a kid but I haven’t played it since. I seem to be lacking shoot ’em up games on this channel so I thought I’d give it a go after 25+ years! And man it is hard! Maybe its because its only on an 8-bit cartridge that the movement feels really sticking and non-responsive but it is a very challenging game!
