Platform: Nintendo 64 (1997)

Demolition mayhem is the defining characteristic of Blast Corps, all committed in the hopes of clearing the path of an unstoppable transport vehicle trying to deliver two faulty nukes to a safe detonation site before they explode and send the world into chaos. The slightest nudge will trigger the explosion, so the Blast Corps team must utilize a variety of different vehicles and mech suits to demolish any building or structure that lies in the transport’s way. The sense of power was palpable in Blast Corps, as everything crumbled to pieces beneath the player in an endless stream of explosions and flying debris. Rare added some variety to the game with time trials and light environmental puzzle solving during certain missions in order for the transport to make it through safely. Blast Corps had a nice, sandbox feel to it that made it one of the more unique games on Nintendo 64.
