Blasto was a third-person action/platformer/shooter game developed by Sony Interactive and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America for the Sony PlayStation in North America on April 15th, 1998. Phil Hartman had voiced Captain Blasto, an extremely muscular, alien-fighting, dimwitted captain who’s always in the mood for a babe from any solar system most specifically in the Planet Uranus.
The game has a strong platforming factor, with elements such as rotating 3D sections which have to be navigated while shooting at aliens.
The reception from critics was mixed, though audiences responded to the game warmly. Although not very well received, the reviews have mentioned that the game is worth playing for Phil Hartman’s voice acting alone. Blasto would also mark one of Hartman’s last projects. The game was released less than two months before his death.
Cheers & Game On!
