Game release: “Blazing Chrome” (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch)

JoyMasher and The Arcade Crew deliver an explosive mix of classic run-and-gun fun with Blazing Chrome.

Indie games are ripe with nostalgia, and this game is probably the best example, which isn’t a bad thing. Clearly inspired by the Contra series, survival through bullet hell is key, and it doesn’t matter much that the story is as 80ies/90ies B-movie fare as it can be. Humanity becoming expendable after an AI controlled robot army taking over the world and a small rebel group taking up the fight sounds pretty much The Terminator material. Going on a suicide mission to destroy a power plant which is important for the AI’s existence is just an excuse to choose between female soldier Mavra and robot Doyle and blow things up.

What follows is typical for this type of genre: kill or be killed in a storm of enemies and projectiles in a post-apocalyptic setting. Bosses are impressively big, explosions are even bigger, and the more outlandish guns one has, the more fun is a given, including hoverbikes. Going through this great-looking and old-school sounding hell should be done with a friend, though, because co-op play is always a winner, especially when it comes to defeating all sorts of mini or big bosses.

The game is out now on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. While there’s no launch discount, a game that brings back fast-paced 16-bit action should still be supported, no matter what. The future (probably) depends on it, i.e. being prepared with twitch fingers is always a good idea.
