Great puzzle game! Our German-language review of the Demo can be found in our recorded livestream starting at 02:59:20. Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome. 🙂

Hello Dr JaMiN, this is likely a compatibility issue of the emulator. The game works on real hardware and the emulator is made to replicate real hardware - optimization does not work the other way around. We recommend to try another emulator, almost all of them will play the game perfectly fine.

Been having fun playing this! But since I've been playing it a lot I've also been wishing there was a way to turn the music off and just keep the sound effects. It's a great tune, but I would love to play the game with just soundeffects for longer gaming sessions. 
(me playing it a bunch = me loving the game)

I just streamed this game co-op with a friend.

It’s a lot of fun!

It’s very well-made and the game mechanics are very well thought-out. The music is catchy and the pixel art is clear and easy to read. In co-op there are also good ways to help your fellow firefighter, whether it be by guarding the hose or a particular room, or by splitting up and having one player grab keys or hose extensions which the other player can immediately use to open doors or bring the hose in further.

It’s pretty impressive how the mechanics are so well done, especially with the limitations of NES game design. Highly recommend this game!

Thanks to everyone who tried the demo or purchased Blazing Rangers - If you enjoyed the game, please don't forget to leave a rating!

Hey, I just love the look of this game! Well done! 

I'm just wondering if the game has an end screen after the 32 levels or, like older games, it loops back to the beginning and can theoretically play forever/ til a kill screen?

Thanks! It does have an ending screen, which will also reveal a secret. Depending on a certain side objective, the ending might also change...

@First Press Games I've bought the physical cartridge and it looks awesome, but like @centaur2 asked, does the cartridge use components to do proper level translation from 5V to 3.3V? I've opened the cartridge and all chips inside are rated 3.3V (according to their datasheets), and not 5V which can be bad for both the cartridge and the NES console (aka generate too much heat).

That said, I'm not an expert in electronics so I can't say for sure if it got the circuitry to convert voltage properly.  So I'd appreciate a confirmation that it's safe to use.

If not, it'll make a nice prop on my shelves and I might buy the ROM anyways to play the game on MiSTer FPGA instead. Thanks!

There is a voltage level translation on the PCB, so it is definitely safe to use.

Awesome, thanks for confirming!

I would've liked to find this info on the game's page on the First Press Games website. It's often a concern these days with all the new releases and reproduction cartridges coming out for classic consoles. It's pretty common that they don't have correct voltage unfortunately.

I just spent the evening playing this with my wife and let me tell you its a great little game!  A real credit to the homebrew scene, you guys should be proud!

The physical PAL cart unfortunately freezes on my NESRGB modded PAL Frontloader. Anyone else having problems?

The game should work fine on all normal, official PAL/NTSC revisions of the NES, we made sure to test it thoroughly on all of them.

Quick troubleshooting:

(1) Please make sure all console contacts of the cartridge slot are clean and unbent.

(2) Please make sure that the cartridge is running in the correct PAL/NTSC mode. You can adjust the mode by pressing reset quickly five times while the console is turned on with the cartridge inserted.

If neither of that is the issue, could you email our support with a detailed report when and how the freeze occurs and what exact mod has been applied to your console?

support@firstpressgames.com

Since it is a modded console, we unfortunately cannot promise the fuctionality, but we can look into the issue with our manufacturer if we get more details and maybe solve it. Same goes for clone and emulation consoles.

Thanks for your very quick reply.

As all other games run flawless, the pins should not be at fault.

I tried pressing reset 5 times, but unfortunately this was no

solution.

I contacted your support via eMail.

Thanks! And by the way, the quality of the physical release is outstanding.

Sadly no feedback from your support. 

According to Tim Worthington (creator of NESRGB), it is likely that the cart is not compatible with the very stable and powerful 5V levels that the modded NES is providing, as the components in the cart seem to be 3.3V parts.

Please get in touch

Thanks

I have forwarded this message to our support, it is strange that you have no reply yet. The voltage definitely isn't a problem, there is a voltage level translation on the PCB to make the used parts compatible with the console hardware.

Can you post some box art files for use with emulator frontends? Thanks! Great game :)

I introduced your game.

Is the demo not available anymore? Neither of the demo download links seem to work.

Maybe that was a temporal server problem or such, the download seems to work fine!

I really like your game and the potential it has and I wanted to ask how you guys handled the text for the Famicom version of Blazing Rangers. I was hoping to be able to use it in my own original products. :) thx in advance if you have time.

Blazing Rangers hat very little text so it is in English in both versions, comparable to other Arcade-style games such as Bubble Bobble. Only the title screen, packaging and manual is in Japanese.

I'm loving the demo. When can we expect to see the full version available for purchase and download here?

It is now available as a digital purchase!

Thank you!

(+5)

I've been hoping for a ROM since this game was first mentioned. Any update on if it will be offered for sale?

Thank you

It is now available, if you prefer a digital purchase.

I introduced your game on the site.

Hi, do you plan on offering a rom for this?

Yes, it is available now.

(+2)

I'm curious, do the firefighters themselves have names?

Yes they do! The guy is called Popo and the woman is called Mimi. You can see their names right at the beginning in the character selection of the game.

Really well done,  great homage!

This game reminds me to Bomberman NES Game :)

i see his ass. haha funny!

Any relation to the burning rangers?

Not really, Burning Rangers is a Sega-series. It's not related to Blazing Rangers in any way, other than the shared fire fighting-theme.

this is goood

(+1)

This is excellent. Not only is the gameplay classic yet completely new, the game has its own theme song. Amazing

(+4)

I hope we can purchase the full version in a rom version too!

so hyped for the full release still!

Same here

Me too!

ditto! really liked the demo. would definitely buy it @ $10

Your wish has been granted!

Would be nice if we could order just the completed ROM file so we could put it onto other systems too.

(1 edit) (+4)

Yes please, I want to by a ROM Version too.

(+4)

Same for me, i don't have a NES, i don't want to buy one, i prefer to play with emulators and buy many homebrews her on Itch.io and on Kickstarter. Will it be possible to buy your game in ROM format ?
Maybe when all the cartridge will be sold out ?
Thanks a lot

It took a while, but this option is now available.

Check out my Vimeo gameplay! I might be a little bad at this, but check it out! Played on RetroArch multi-emulator

Looks awesome! Can't wait to play it after work!

It looks like the good old days:)
Interesting

I knew it was the same style of Gotta Protectors, at least it gained my hype. I only wish that they Gotta Protectors on more systems than the 3DS.

Was on the XBL, originally.
