Lazer Blazer is a game of skill. The object is to destroy each of the lazer outposts before being hit yourself. The game uses joystick one. To move your spaceship, move the joystick in that direction. To fire straight down, pull the trigger. To fire at an angle, pull the trigger AND move the joystick at the same time. The first round consists of three bases. When you destroy all of them, you will receive bonus points, and will go on to the next round. If you take too long to complete a round, you will hear a warning sound. After the warning sound, you will only have a few seconds with which to hit the remaining base(s). Each game consists of three turns, with a bonus turn awarded at each interval of 2,500 points.
