A fun space shooter
14 July 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In a time where space-shooter were a dime a dozen, Blazing Lazers has long faded into obscurity. But if you come across it cheap (very unlikely it only came out on the Turbo-Grafx and is generally very expensive) I suggest you give it a go.

The game has more in common with shooters like the 1942 series than say, R-Type. There's absolutely nothing special or stand-out about it other than it is simply fun to play. You get the usual power-ups and bosses and stuff and you'll have a good time blasting away at everything. Only problem is that the levels are very long and when you die you'll be sent way back, which is annoying.
