For the final episode of this podcast, I wanted to briefly discuss all the Japanese, Homebrew and Unreleased games for the system.
3-D Tetris is the final officially released game for the Nintendo Virtual Boy in North America!  Unfortunately, it's not a great game.  There have been bad Tetris games in the past, but I think that this might be one of my least favorites. Join
Nester's Funky Bowling is does exactly what it says on the tin: a bowling game, with funkiness, starring Nester. NFB has some pretty amusing animations that play after each throw.  Those animations are well done, though they do get on your nerv
Waterworld was poorly received, critically.  In this episode, hear far more than you would ever like to hear about the story of Waterworld and the enemies therein. I also make the argument that this is a very good game! Try it!  You'll like it!
Vertical Force is another of the third party releases for the Virtual Boy. It's a vertically scrolling space shooter, and my favorite game on the system. Multiple power ups for your ship, and a special drone system with really smooth, useful co
Panic Bomber is a fantastic puzzle game for the Virtual Boy, developed by Hudson Soft and released in December of 1995 in North America. Each puzzle is basically  battle mode with the CPU.  As you complete various stages, you progress towards t
Virtual Boy Wario Land is a great platformer released in November of 1995 in the United States. Wario can change hats to gain different powers, and has to collect as many treasures as possible while escaping an underground labyrinth. The sounds
Golf was released in November of 1995 in North America and is, as it sounds, a golf simulation. It's a serviceable simulation, too!  I have a couple of issues with graphics, but it's actually quite good for the time. A swing power meter and bal
Mario Clash is a fantastic update to the arcade Mario Bros. game. In this, you must make your way up Clash Tower, one floor at a time.  To do so, you have to stomp on Koopas and steal their shells to smack other monsters in the face.  IN 3-D!!!
Jack Bros. is the only game developed by Atlus released for the Virtual Boy. It was the first game released in North America in the Megami Tensei series. This game plays like a combination of Gauntlet and Bomberman.  Action with puzzle elements
Virtual League Baseball was developed by Kemco and released in September/October 1995. A good fun baseball game, hampered for me by the fact that I stink at sports games.  There are intricacies such as player substitution and bunting.  Fielding
Galactic Pinball was the final launch title for the Virtual Boy in North America. Using the concept of 'pinball in space', Intelligent Systems was able to craft a very enjoyable virtual pinball game.  In space, apparently, pinballs have been ou
Teleroboxer is a fantastic boxing game developed by Nintendo R&D1 for the launch of the Virtual Boy. Teleroboxer is very similar to Punch Out!!! but differs in that it is very fast and you control each arm of your remote robot boxer individuall
Red Alarm was the second of four releases that coincided with the Virtual Boy North American launch. It's a space shooter in the vein of Starfox, but the graphics are completely wireframe, similar to vector arcade games like Tempest or, more ap
Mario's Tennis was the pack-in game for the Virtual Boy. Developed by R&D1, the same unit that developed the Virtual Boy hardware, it was a good showcase for the system. Our next episode will cover Red Alarm.  Send in submissions on the hardwar
Welcome to Virtually Human: the Nintendo Virtual Boy Game-By-Gsme Podcast! In this episode, I discuss the hardware of the Virtual Boy and the development of the red and black system, as well as some of my personal history with the Virtual Boy.
