Blam! Machinehead (ブラム!マシーンヘッド), known in the US as Machine Head, is an action shooting game developed by Core Design and published by Virgin Interactive for the Sega Saturn. The game was also released for DOS and PlayStation. A Sega 32X version of the game was once in development, but was cancelled. Development of the game was initially for the Mega CD as a sequel to Battlecorps before being moved to more powerful systems.

Gameplay

Blam! Machinehead is similar in design to Core's earlier Sega Mega-CD release, Battlecorps, with players driving a vehicle from a first person perspective, shooting at enemies and obstacles while trying to get to specified locations on the map.
