Aero Blasters

A horizontal-scrolling Arcade shoot 'em up developed by Kaneko. It saw home conversions for the TurboGrafx-16 and Genesis (on the Genesis it is known as Air Buster).


Aero Blasters (NA Genesis: Air Busters) is a 1990 Kaneko shoot 'em up. The game is known for its incredible speed, with stages where the playing field is limited to narrow passageways that the player must navigate their ship through, like Scramble. The game includes multiple power-up types and different ships the player can use.

Aero Blasters was converted to the TurboGrafx-16 later the same year and to the Sega Genesis the following year. Both versions were developed by Kaneko's home console subsidiary Inter State Software.
