Blazing Thunder is a vertical scrolling action shooter that looks pretty much like Ikari Warriors. The game was released for the Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and the 16bit Amiga and Atari ST.
 
Review
Blazing ThunderSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The story takes place somewhere in the future where you find yourself in the middle of a tank battle. There are no outstanding features to the game really. Your main goal is to just control your tank around the levels shooting anything that moves, until you reach the end of the level where a large enemy vehicle awaits (a tank, a chopper etc). The further you advance, the better weapons and power-ups you'll collect. Along your way you must also avoid enemy minefields! The game is quite playable but hard enough to last. It's surely fun for a while but it's not as addictive as Ikari Warriors but that doesn't stop Blazing Thunder from being a great little shooter.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Commodore version has great graphics with a variety of enemies and backgrounds that look like Ikari Warriors. Comparably, the visuals look better on the CPC version, mainly due to the better color palette of the CPC hardware, while the C64 manages better scrolling and larger playable area. The sound on the C64 is equally good, with a variety of cannon and machine-gun firing effects along with explosions but again, no music at all.
