A brilliant, addictive shooter, Blazing Star might have a few niggles, but they're made up for with bombast and bullets.
If you like side-scrolling shooters and missed this one in 1998, give this faithful port a go. Just beware that the control scheme brings complications.
Stuttery control issues aside, Blazing Star features some of the most intricate shooter gameplay you can find in the vast pool of shmups available on the App Store. The best part? Even paper carriers can afford to indulge.
So if you’re not scared of Arcade Shooters like me, can handle grannies on the train commenting about the amount of scantily clad ladies, and fancy a quick blast of alien scum, this is another decent addition to the growing list of AppStore retro shooters. Get it more.

Blazing Star is more notable for its poor English translation than its gameplay. The best thing about it is that it supports the iCade.
