Blast Corps [N64]
Move against any buliding so that the front of your vehicle is touching it. Press the Z-trigger. Your driver will yell, alerting you that he can't get out of the vehicle. Keep the Z-trigger pulled and the building in front of you will blow up. This trick is easier to do with some vehicles than with others. The Dump Truck is the easiest. |
Finish the Race Course as dictated by the game. Attempt the course again using a different vehicle and you'll race a ghost car.
Press Accelerate when the last beep is heard as the light is turning green.
Successfully complete all missions and find all six scientists to access two bonus courses. The objective of the first bonus mission is to clear a town of all objects in order to allow a space shuttle to make an emergency landing. The objective of the second bonus mission is to clear all buildings off the Moon. A third bonus mission is accessible only after a perfect score is achieved.
Extra Bonus courses:
Complete all missions twice and more courses will appear after the bonus courses appears.
Simply drive up next to something and try to get out of your vehicle by pressing Z. If you're too close, your man will yell and not get out. If you continue holding Z, the obstructing object will blow up like magic! This is particularly useful for buildings that can only be blown up by TNT or other non-standard methods.
Here's another trick inherited from Mario Kart 64. For a faster start on racing courses, press the ACCELERATE button as soon as the last light turns green. For best results, time your press the button at the final beep.
Bonus Vehicles in Argent Towers:
There are many hard-to-find vehicles in this game. Here's how to find some of them in Argent Towers:
First find the small, square pit. Then get out of your vehicle. Walk around it until you find a ramp. Go about halfway down it. Change camera angles so you are looking at your man's back. Go down the rest of the way. On the other side of the pit you should see a brown doorway. Go into it and turn left. Now you have to walk a long way. After a while you will be in a small area with J-Bomb. Climb in and J-Bomb is yours. Three more vehicles are in this level, though Ramdozer doesn't seem to have a purpose. Keep the same camera angle you used before and head down. When you come to a point where there is a fence blocking your path, go to the left and right to find a ramp (this one is the thinner of the 2 you will see) and once again get out of your vehicle. Go down this ramp to find Ramdozer and a doorway. Ramdozer can be used if you want to, but I just go in the door. When you go in the door, stay as far to the left as you can. Otherwise you will get on a train and to get to the Police Car you can't be on the train. If you get on, just get off and try again. After that is accomplished, hold down-left on the stick. After a while, your man will go down. Now hold down on the stick and you will get to the Police Car. Drive it around the maze, but when you get back to the maze entrance, you will have to walk back. Walk up until you come to a point where you can't go anymore. Now turn right. when you can't go anymore, go down, then down-left and get on the train. Press the acceleration button and when you see the train through a large door, hop off. Get in the "Missle Car" and gather the missles. Now go up the large ramp and through the fence. The car is yours!
There are six scientists in Blast Corps, and once you've found these white-jacket clad old men, you have completed the game's first major segment. The six scientists are located in:
But there's more. After the game ends, the carrier is directed to a safe place to explode, and after all of the credits roll by, a brand new set of challenges awaits you. Wait until the credits roll by to see this new bonus level.
On the Skyfall level, you must finish in 4 seconds to achieve a platinum medal. To do this you must dive at an angle into the first two and quickly turn around and dive into the remaining two at an angle. It's quite hard at first, but you get the hang of it quickly.
Bonus Level: Moon
After saving the space shuttle you'll have completed the transition level that leads the Blast Corps into outer space. You'll fly to the moon on the space shuttle and wreak havok there, having to destroy several constructs within six minutes. Backlash is the only chooseable vehicle.Gravity is different, much like it would be on the moon, and control of ones's vehicle is even more of necessary than ever. As in the Earth's levels, look for ditches and hills to launch Backlash into buildings with even more power. This level is truly fun.
Bonus Level: Shuttle Island
The new challenge is to clear a path for a runaway space shuttle. The space shuttle has been battered and disabled and must land in the middle of a city. The Blast Corps must destroy the entire city to let it land. To beat this level, you must locate Thunderfist. At the level's immediate beginning, drive right, and follow the perimeter of the buildings on your left. You'll take a left, and then drive straight until you reach a set of buildings with dynamite crates surrounding them. Blow up the first one, and inside it is Thuderfist. Use this awesome destructor to annihilate the city.
