Q YO Blaster Official Trailer
Q-YO BLASTER Gameplay Trailer
Q-YO Blaster is a great little tribute to Parodius, filled with inventive enemies and brilliantly designed boss battles. Its gameplay is solid and addictive with a beautiful art-style reminiscent in places of the mighty Cuphead. It's short and sweet for sure, but it's got lots of replayability and is perfect for whipping out for a quick blast on quick journeys and, all in all, is yet another cracking addition to the Switch's ever-growing roster of top quality shmups.
Q-YO Blaster has got its heart in the right place, but it doesn't quite have the follow-through to stand out amongst the greats. It's art style is both its greatest strength and biggest weakness, and it's short length means it doesn't really have much staying power.
