    Cons.:
    - There are missions and minions that are created just to kill the player and make the gameplay overly difficult even on medium mode. For example, if the enemy fire touches you slightly, you're dead. Instead of making it like in Contra, when if the bullet touches a tip of the foot, you're still alive.
    - If they make the game with that hard vehicle mode (moving, shooting, jumping, multiple actions), need more checkpoints. Otherwise, it's harder than Battletoads.

    Those cons are not critical but really worsen my gameplay experience. Even though I bought the controller JUST for this game. Keyboard controls are unbearable.

    Blazing Chrome understands exactly what made the older titles tick. It has the look and sound of classic titles, and it emulates the gameplay really well. The action is relentless, and boss fights reward skill over pure ammo dumping. The game doesn't go for adding on extras from other genres, relying instead on pure gameplay to drive the title. The short length, which was normal for offerings from that time period and genre, is buoyed by gameplay modes that feel worthwhile instead of tacked on. For run-and-gun fans, Blazing Chrome is an essential addition to the gaming library.

    Blazing Chrome is a great platformer - but a very difficult one. It’s a delight for all fans of Contra or Metal Slug or, more generally, for anyone looking for a wonderfully punishing time.

    With low-texture pixel art and an FM synth-rock soundtrack, Blazing Chrome is best described as a spiritual successor to Contra games from the 16-bit era. A 16:9 aspect ratio, devastating enemy attacks and upgradable weapons give Blazing Chrome a unique sense of thrill and exhilaration. Heavily inspired by older games yet original at the same time, Blazing Chrome’s refined level design will have you learn each time you die. Fighting your way through this classic run-and-gun game is like reliving an experience that never gets old.
