    Virtual Boy Wario Land​

    Virtual Boy Wario Land was released in 1995 for Nintendo's short-lived 3D system, the Virtual Boy. After Wario awakes from a jungle nap, he tracks a group of masked monsters to a waterfall cave, where he finds treasure. The game play follows Wario as he attempts to escape an underground labyrinth, where he has been trapped, collecting as much treasure as possible, while battling through enemies and boss fights.

    This title is often considered one of the best games to have been released for the Virtual Boy. Making use of the systems 3D, the player will have opportunities to explore both the background and foreground layers. The game offers an exceptional platforming experience with a perfectly balanced difficulty curve. Many power-ups will be presented along the way allowing Wario to take on some unique abilities, such as shooting fire, flying, and even devastating ground pound attacks. A fun sound track, simple control scheme, and hidden items help to keep the game fresh on multiple replays.

    The Virtual Boy has become an obscure system coveted by a small community of fans, making this game an often overlooked gem. Thanks to emulation, the game can be experienced, although not to its full red and black glory, using common paper 3D glasses.

    If you are looking for something new to try or you just want a wonderful platforming experience, give Virtual Boy Wario Land a chance. We think that you will be pleasantly surprised!
