Red Alarm (VB / Virtual Boy)

Game Profile

Red Alarm is a game for the Nintendo Virtual Boy video game console. Released in August 1995 by T&E Soft, it was one of the four titles available at the console's introduction. The game takes place 70 years in the future (from the game's release), where a computer named KAOS threatens to take over the world and destroy mankind. The player's mission is to enter KAOS using a Tech-Wing Fighter plane and destroy it.

The game is set in a full 3D environment, using wire frame graphics similar to those used in games like Atari's Battlezone and Star Wars arcade games, as well as Starglider and X. The player has extensive control over the plane's movements, using all available buttons on the Virtual Boy's controller. Red Alarm stands out amongst the small crop of titles available for the Virtual Boy as one of the games that makes best use of the controller and 3D effects, and has a slightly smoother frame rate when compared to games like Star Fox on the SNES.

Another one of the god VB games. Not too rarer so you could get it for a reasonable price. It has great graphics, awesome levels, good bosses, and even has some voice over work on it. Which for like 1995 is a big deal! Like most VB games it does not save so you will have to start all over if you don't get the game beat in one sitting. Overall all a game I highly recommend to any VC owner.
