Released In: 1995
Virtual Boy Wario Land was released by Nintendo for its ill-fated Virtual Boy system in 1995. It stars Wario in a platforming adventure quite similar to most of his other starring roles. The story begins when he wakes up from a nap in the jungle and sees a group of masked monsters. He tracks them to a cave behind a waterfall and discovers a huge treasure. When Wario attempts to take the treasure, a trap is sprung, and he plummets into a huge underground labyrinth. It's up to the player to help Wario escape, while grabbing as much treasure as he can get his hands on. Virtual Boy Wario Land is generally regarded as one of the better games for the Virtual Boy, if not the best.
Alexis Acid: When I took my first Virtual Boy home and opened the box, I had trouble getting it to work properly. As it turned out, something was wrong with the G-Diffuser.
SoldierHawk: I am probably the least qualified person in the world to contribute to an article about the Virtual Boy. Between bad eyesight and blistering migraine headaches, I have only been able to play a grand total of half an hour of the system in my entire life. Still, complete ignorance and lack of any sort of familiarity with the subject matter has never stopped me from contributing to a conversation before, so here goes.
The ugliest piece of shit game I had ever seen in my life. Made even uglier by the fact I couldn't wear my glasses, and immediately developed a pounding and nausea inducing headache to boot. There wasn't even any COLOR, for god's sake! If the game I had initially played had been Virtual Boy Wario Land, maybe I wouldn't have been so hurt. From what I understand that game is playable, even occasionally fun. But no, I got stuck with fucking Red Alarm. The Virtual Boy promised me the Holodeck; instead it delivered a monochrome piece of shit game, and a migraine.
