Kudos to the sagely Pixel Prospector for spotting this one. If there's one thing that I've learnt over the past decade of gaming, it's that physics make everything better. From the earliest, wobbliest ragdoll death animations to splooshy fluid dynamics and even just small details like sparks from impacts skittering across the floor. I've also learnt that retro mash-ups are rad. Frank Force's Faster Blaster (formerly known as Mother Lover) is doubleplus extra badical, for these reasons. Take one part Metroid, one part Blaster Master and 9.8g's of physics, shake (not stir) and serve on the rocks.
