Blazing Lazers, also known as Gunhed (ガンヘッド) in Japan, is a shoot 'em up game released in 1989 by Hudson Soft for the TurboGrafx-16. This game was developed by Compile, which is only credited in the game's ending as a "cooperator". It is a spin-off of the Star Soldier series.


Seated at the helm of 80 tons of awesome firepower - a Gunhed Star Fighter - you've just run into the ruthless Dark Squadron. Dangerously close to the Earth, they threaten to destroy the world with eight Super Weapons. Only you and your star fighter's blazing lazers and bombs stand between them and certain destruction.
