Fans of the classic side-scroller Contra, or as it was called in Australia Probotector, will definitely want to keep an eye on Blazing Chrome. Developed by The Arcade Crew it's a throwback to 16-bit post-apocalyptic action that looks incredible in motion.
Check it out.
In Blazing Chrome, militant AI-fueled computers rule the Earth while humans are expendable, lacking power, prestige or status among their machine overlords. Choose to play as Mavra, a super badass human resistance soldier, or Doyle, the equally groovy and deadly insurgent robot. When a small group of rebels decide to overthrow their oppressors, it results in heavy casualties and a ton of lock-and-load fast-paced action where scrapping robots and blazing chrome with your powerful weapons is the only thing standing between you and your freedom.
The development team cites both Contra and Metal Slug as inspiration for the game and it's not hard to see the connection. Outside of that though the sheer number of sprites on-screen with detailed animation definitely give Blazing Chrome the look and feel of an arcade cabinet that would have blown people away back in the early 1990s. And it's out on July 11 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
