This week on episode 143, we get a demonstration of what happens when you title a game by smashing two words together to create a third word.
This week’s game is ASTROBLAST, an unholy union of “astronomy” or “astronomical” and “blast”. Personally, I thing “Astronomical Blast” is just as, if not more, inviting a game title as Astroblast, by M Network in 1982 never asked me.
The title is enough to tell us this game is about blasting things wherever astronomy is. That probably means space! And that is awfully fun.
So is this week’s original short story!
So much goodness in one podcast episode.
