In this adventure game, you control the amateur inventor Elandra, who has to help amateur rocket builder Mickey Farley with his ambitious project. All he needs is some fuel and materials, and he'll be able to launch his rocket into space. It won't be easy to get them though.
The game is controlled with a mouse; similarly to Sam & Max Hit The Road, right-clicking changes the cursor action (Walk to, Look at, Interact with, Talk to), while moving the cursor to the top of the screen makes a menu appear, allowing you to easily change the cursor actions, access one's inventory or save/load/quit the game.
The Reality on The Norm (RON) games are a series of short games started by some AGS developers. The idea behinds them is that of sharing characters and setting to create a world that seems more alive than others. A character you meet in one game as an NPC may very well go on a quest him/herself in another chapter, and vice versa. These games are very short, and offer perhaps an hour or less of gameplay. But it's the continuance of the series, and the fact that new games should get released on a rather fast basis, that makes this series unique. Since the games are designed by different designers, they differ a bit in style from chapter to chapter. However, as they share the same backgrounds, characters and overall atmosphere, you'll feel at home in all RON games once you've played one.
In RON: Blastoff, you play Elandra, Davy Jones' girlfriend - on a quest to help somebody build a spaceship. It's a rather confusing plot... but in the end, it works well. The graphics in this game are among the best in the series... and the game is pretty long. Puzzles are also nicely laid out, and of an average level - with the exception of one rather cruel puzzle. Overall, this game does not stand out in any department, but also does not disappoint in any.
If you download this game, or any other RON game, you should be aware that you're not getting a lot of gameplay for it. You will, however, be adopting a small fun game that has lots of brothers in the pipeline, and a rather alive atmosphere. And well... it's fun playing a short adventure game which you know you'll certainly finish. Recommended!
