About Blazing Chrome

About this game

In Blazing Chrome, machines rule the world and the few humans left are on the edge of total extermination, lacking power, prestige or status among their metal and circuits overlords. Bring your best pal and kick some metal butts to free the humankind while enjoying a classic run’n’gun, fully loaded with action and exciting fights!

Humans are expendable after an AI controlled robot army take over the world. They survive in hiding while their hunters rule the surface. When a small rebel group gets an intel about a big AI's power plant, the machines strike their camp before they can organize an attack. A small group of rebels escape and go in a suicide mission to destroy this power plant. Choose to play as Mavra, a super badass human resistance soldier, or Doyle, the equally groovy and deadly insurgent robot. This suicide mission will result in heavy casualties and a ton of lock-and-load fast-paced action where scraping robots and blazing chrome with your powerful weapons is the only thing standing between you and your freedom.

Dash through 5 apocalyptic environments with hundred of robots-enemies to blow to pieces. Blast your way through the enemy lines and and try to defeat a bunch of mechanical bosses with using hoverbikes, huge armors and a whole arsenal of kick-ass weapons.

Blazing Chrome offers a lot of features in the legacy of classic run’n’gun games:

● Local Co-op Gameplay
● 16-bits post-apocalyptic environments
● Classic fast-paced run-and-gun experience
● Epic boss battles and crazy lot minibosses fights
● Genuine arcade feel
● Motorcycle and jetpack action
● Rad pixel art

An excellent Contra style side scrolling shoot em up. Really pays homage and is just a really mindblowing and challenging experience. Soundtrack is poppin! Don't think about it, grab it!

Solid Contra-like game. Really cool aesthetic and backstory. A little too difficult for me to get very far in even on Easy, has the traditional, difficulty = number of starting lives sort of thing. But if you like Contra that's probably not going to deter you

This game is Hard Corps

Blazing Chrome is excellent! The very definition of "short and sweet". It felt like a long-lost sequel to Contra Hard Corps. The double-tap shoot-to-melee mechanic should be in proper Contra games. Great sprite work, great music, and intense, fast-paced high-octane action. Hey Konami, hire JoyMasher for your next Contra title ;)

Closest thing to SNES Contra. Excellent pixel art and music too.

It won't change any minds, but if you're a fan of the genre this is a high quality entry.

An excellent side-scrolling shooter in the Contra tradition. Difficulty that's at Normal is tough enough to provide a challenge without being so uncompromisingly brutal that it becomes frustrating, and with options to adjust that further up or down. Throw in great art and sound, multiple playable characters, and even Metal Slug-style mech segments and you have a fantastic retro shooter for fans of the genre.

I enjoyed playing Super C on NES back in the day and Blazing Chrome is made by the same creators but they couldn't use the Contra name so I figured this would be worth trying. It's super hard and I do enjoy it but mostly for nostalgia purposes.

Great game, really reminds me of an updated Contra title. Fun and really easy to dump countless hours into. Has a bit of challenge that is really reminiscent of those retro titles!
