Here's a look at Blazing Lazers, one of my favorite TurboGrafx-16 titles, and one of my all-time favorite 16-bit era video games.

 

 

So, what do you guys think? Have you played Blazing Lazers? What impression did it leave you with of the TurboGrafx-16 console?

Blazing Lazers was the first game I bought for the TurboGrafx when I got it. I could play it for hours! Other TG stuff that came later on the Duo looked more advanced, but Blazing Lazers is brilliant and it's still one of my favorite shmups.

I played it once at a friend's house. Unfortunately it was his older brother's system and he came home and got mad that we were playing with his stuff. I remember him opening the jewel case and that chip in there. I was expecting to be a CD in there.

I missed all the TG16 games except one Keith Courage. It came with the system and the only game I ever found. Through emulation I have discovered this and other TG16 games where I would like to get a PC Engine someday...especially for Salamander.

Classic Game Room has a great review of Blazing Lazers. It's one of my favorite TurboGrafx-16 games as well!

ya Blazing Lasers showed a lot of promise for TG16 in the early days. It was my favorite game for the system next to Alien Crush.

Well, I'm definitely in the mood for some TurboGrafx now. I may have to fire up the ol' 16 and see how she runs.

Apparently it was Kanye's favorite game.
