Hello everyone, and welcome back to my computer and electronics blog. I am going to assume that most of you are around my age, and grew up in the nineties. To us nineties kids, the Nintendo 64 will always hold a special place in our heart with its distinctive controls and plethora of new game ideas. Everyone remembers having to blow into the grey RAM cartridge while thier mean neighbor was busy trying to use toothpaste to fix the scratch in their Playstation disks. We have all played the bit hits, Super Smash Bros, Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Turok etc etc. But how many of these forgotten classic have you popped into your Nintendo 64?
Not only is this game a classic from underrated an era of Nintendo 64 games, but it is one of the biggest cult classic for the N64. Body Harvest is a game made by the same company responsible for creating Grand Theft Auto at the time, and was a before its time sandbox game looking more like Grand Theft Auto III for the Microsoft Xbox. The game has the player taking control of an alien in a sandbox environment on Mars, an experience that any GTA fan would enjoy.
I would have loved this game if I had it as a kid. In Blast Corps, you take control of a bulldozer that demolishes any buildings in its way so that a special red truck carrying nuclear weapons can pass through. If you make one wrong move, the missiles on the truck explode along with you and anything else on screen. The game was developed by now famous developer Rare, and was one of the most overlooked titles on the platform that was published by Nintendo on the N64 platform.
