Blastron Blasts Onto Android – It’s Like Worms but With Robots Instead


Back when I was younger, Worms was a great way to get my fix of cartoon violence. You placed your character in a strategical position on a map and would then fire missiles/guns/nukes at opposing worms. Whoever dies first loses. Recently launched onto Google Play is Blastron, a game with the same modus operandi, but with robots instead of war-hardened worms. As you progress, your robot is heavily customizable with different weapons and power-ups. 

The game is free, but there are a ton of in-app purchases to give you the upper hand against online opponents. For fun, I gave a quick look at the app’s page on the iOS AppStore. Listed as one of the top selling in-app purchases is the $100 “Vault of Gears.” $100?! People must be crazy for this game. Literally crazy.

Go check it out!

    This reminds me of Gunbound as well—which was such an awesome game. I’m not sure why there isn’t an official app for it yet. Guess I will give this a try…

    installed on my gnex. ran suuuupppeerrrr slow. Anyone else having this issue?

  • disastrousrainbow

    I remember the good times when Gunbound came out, especially before it got overrun by the pay-for-play model. Downloading this now, let’s see…

    Worms is an AWESOME game!! I also really liked Scorch (with the little tanks). Gonna have to give this new one a try. Thanks for the heads-up Tim!

    All you youngsters with your Worms and your network connections… When I was your age, we played “Scorched Earth”, and we shared the same keyboard!

      Oh yeah?! Well damnit, I remember the classic Atari game Missile Command and I wasn’t even born yet!

      That was my thought too. I ran a Scorch server back in the 90’s when some of the first network games were coming out. I also used to play “Barrage” on my OG Droid which calls itself a “tribute” to Scorched Earth. You might want to check that out for some nostalgia.

    • Trevor

      Yes! That game was great!

    I can remember the originator of all this, Scorched Earth: The Mother of all Games. That was amusing, then Worms came out.

      I remember working late night in the NOC and we setup a server, did nothing but worms all nighters … those were the days….

  • standardsdt

    Sort of looks like Gunbound as well.


    • EvanTheGamer

      Gunbound was such a fun game back in the day! Use to spend hours upon hours playing online. It was pretty awesome, especially for being free!

      • Bob G

        Haha memories. I remember getting a bunch of people in college to play and we formed a “clan”. Gunbound good times.
