The best Contra game for decades, even if it's not an official sequel, with amusingly over-the-top action and a great co-op mode.

Blazing Chrome is an amazing package that does exactly what it sets out to do and is for people who know what they want from it. By the same (arcade) token, it is difficult to recommend to anyone who even begins to question whether it’s a game for them.

With Blazing Chrome you kind of get what you get: it's an hour and change shooter that pays extreme homage to the Contra series. JoyMasher has already proved that they "get" the bygone eras of retro gaming with Oniken and Odallus, and now they have yet another triumph to add to their resume.

Blazing Chrome it's a love letter to a genre and two specific sagas, with a top notch pixel art, levels with different gameplay and local coop for two. But, at the same time, it doesn't go far away from the original run and gun formula. It venerates it more than innovate it, and because of that all you will see have been done before in other games.
