Power Blade was released for the NES in 1991 and developed by Taito. You'll easily get the impression that this game is about Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting off some reincarnation of Lenin in a distant future. From the manual, we learn however that in the year 2191, our hero Nova must head out to fight off some aliens that have taken the Master Computer off-line. Equipped with an upgradeable boomerang weapon (and in rare cases even the legendary Power Blade weapon), Nova must get through 6 sectors before gaining access to the Master Computer Control Center and return peace to earth. With some similarities in the gameplay to the Mega Man games and offering a catchy soundtrack, Power Blade is generally well appreciated, even though it never received much fame.
