What this book is is fun! I first read this nearly 20 years ago when I was a big fan of the game and though I haven't played Blaster Master since then this book served to bring back a lot of good memories.
It is a page turner and can be finished in about an hour so the time investment is definitely worth it.
On a negative note, the author did take a lot of creative licence by adding characters and plot elements that weren't in the game. To fit these in he skips over most of the levels in the game. I think it could have been a much stronger book if he had stuck to the game.
Also, though as I mentioned the book is purely about having fun and good memories, I think it was a little bit of a wasted opportunity not to put a life lesson or two in. These books were created for kids who didn't normally read and by making it a little more profound more children might have been inspired to pick up another book when it was through.
Overall, a decent and entertaining afternoon read.

For example, in Blaster Master, Jason is not aided by anyone, yet in the book he's got a young girl from an alien world and a human boy who failed the same mission he is now on. Personally, I think this book would have been better if it had just been Jason against the Plutonium Boss (and really, American Sunsoft employees, that's the best you can do?).
As with the other Worlds of Power books, the writing is very amateurish. While I understand that the book is intended for a young audience, that doesn't mean it should be written by one. Seriously, this book reads like an eleven year old wrote it. That doesn't really work for me, nor would it have worked for me when I was eleven (which I was when this book came out).
The most depth in the entire book comes when Jason defeats the final Underboss, only because he thinks he has killed his pet frog, Fred. Fred is also the reason Jason has found himself in this situation (which is the one detail the writer sticks to, fortunately). Of course, since writer's like this don't think kids can handle death (like all those Disney movies we grew up on didn't prepare us), things work out and everyone (and every thing) is okay as long as it isn't a bad guy.
Eve, a character invented by the writer to control the tank and explain everything to Jason (which, if I had written it, would have simply been the AI of the tank) is annoying right from the start. She speaks perfect English during her backstory, but every time she drops slang or an English idiom (the writer doesn't make a distinction and calls it all slang), she misspeaks, making her a perfect cliche of any nonEnglish speaking character of the 80s and 90s and a bit of comic relief.
The brevity of this and the other Worlds of Power books causes a lot of potentially good story to fall through the cracks (well, that and the fact that the writer is just awful). I remember reading this book on the bus ride to school. Memories. The best story ever about a boy and his frog. A powerful coming of age tale of a young boy, Jason, and his overly active frog. Through a confluence of age and being at wrong place at the wrong time Jason's frog becomes slathered in radioactive goo, grows in girth, and promptly disappears down a giant hole. The only explanation of this sudden phenomenon would be aliens snatching up young men's small and benign pets to make them engorged giants out of the control of their owners. I do believe the nefarious aliens were beat back with the help of a female humanoid alienall the pets were released back to their normal size and control of their young owners. The end. Loved this book as a kid. It would probably be terrible if I reread it now, but as an elementary school student, it was awesome. Fun read. Would have loved it more as a child. To keep it at the rather short 90ish pages it has a lot of off scene adventures. "Well I'm glad we killed those 9 level bosses."
