I’m Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let’s player, fan of retro games, and determined optimist… Normally I’m working my way through the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE in my Let’s Play 1001 Games series. This is a great book with a ton of classic retro games but it doesn’t have everything and it’s even missing some of my favorite video games. Hence, in Saturday Afternoon Gaming, screw it, I’m just going to play whatever I want!

In this series I will be playing some of the best retro games that don’t appear in the 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE book. So pull up a chair, slap on your headphones, and join me as babble aimlessly through some of my most favourite classic games! And hey, if you have ideas or suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments below. I’m always looking for more games to try! Today we play…

Virtual Boy Wario Land

Virtual Boy Wario Land (Japanese: バーチャルボーイワリオランド アワゾンの秘宝 Hepburn: Bācharu Bōi Wario Rando: Awazon no Hihō) is a platforming video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Virtual Boy game system in 1995. It stars Wario in a platforming adventure quite similar to most of his other starring roles.

Virtual Boy Wario Land for the Virtual Boy is very similar to other Wario platforming games. Similarly to the original Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, Wario can collect different hats to give himself new abilities. The Dragon Hat allows Wario to use a flamethrower against his enemies, but must recharge (he also cannot barge). The Bull Helmet makes his barge attack faster and a lot more powerful along with the ability to do a ground pound, which can be used to crush his enemies and break blocks below. The Eagle Hat allows Wario to fly as well as barge while in mid-air. By combining the Eagle Hat with the Dragon Hat, Wario earns the King Dragon Hat with the powers of all three caps (except barging). In each stage, Wario must collect treasure and find a key to unlock the elevator to the next stage. Also, as in other Wario games, the player has an opportunity to find different treasures hidden around the stages to increase his or her overall score. There are also a few mini-games located between stages, in which Wario can gamble with the loot he has collected so far.

The developers of the game tried to incorporate the technology of the Virtual Boy into it. For example, many stages have three dimensional areas in their backgrounds, accessible by Wario by using special blocks. Another example is in boss fights, where attacks sometimes appear move closer to the screen, stopping inches from the player’s eyes.

Virtual Boy Wario Land was developed by Nintendo R&D1 and published by Nintendo. The game was originally named Wario Cruise, appearing with the name on the Virtual Boy system’s box and in a Nintendo Power magazine.[1] Like all other Virtual Boy games, Virtual Boy Wario Land uses a red-and-black color scheme and uses parallax; an optical trick that is used to simulate a 3D effect.

  1. Mad, must be mental to play in actual 3D, shame I can't see it. Easy to forget to how nice the graphics are behind the red and black.

  2. It would've been cool if you had actually played this on the actual Virtual Boy. But youre on an emulator here, right?
