I saw KimCheeWarriorX's thread and it reminded me of something I realized awhile back - this game is 20 years old and there isn't a single walkthrough I can find online. The next best thing is a youtube playthrough and I don't know how many people want to watch a motormouth play a game poorly just to figure out what to do next. I decided to remedy this and write my own walkthrough, which is about 30% complete right now.
Though most of the Blaster Master forums are dead, I've still got to ask: if you have any good tips, secrets or strategies, post/send them and I'll credit you if I use the info. --- Once you go Claude, everything else is a Fraud.
