In the future, machines have taken over the world, and only a small rebellion against these cybernetic terrors have a chance to save the world. Sure, the story is pretty much a carbon copy from the Terminator series, but the real reason you want to play Blazing Chrome is for its side-scrolling, action-packed platforming that will bring you straight back to the heyday of when this genre was at its peak. With five stages, four characters, plenty of bosses and adjustable difficulty, Blazing Chrome will easily scratch your itch for a Contra and Metal slug experience. Developer JoyMasher has recently released this game, so if you want to lock and load, you can do so on the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. For this review, the Nintendo Switch version was played, and footage featured here was captured directly from Switch hardware.

From the moment he touched an Intellivision controller in 1985, Mike knew that he had experienced something incredible in the world of video games that would shape him for the rest of his life. From that point forward, he would make it his mission to experience video games from every console generation going forward. Eventually, he would become obsessed with magazines that wrote about the games he loved, and it would inspire him to start writing about games himself in 1998 for various local media outlets. Always looking for an opportunity to branch out, Mike eventually coded the foundation of a website that would ultimately morph into Gamer Logic Dot Net, an independent video game site that continues to cover modern and classic video game today. Additional, Mike composes music for indie games under his other alias "Unleaded Logic"
