I shouldn't have put this off as long as I did, I had sort of a mediocre experience with this game the first time I tried it years ago, and I haven't picked it up since, till now finally. I understand it a little better now. It's still not my favorite game, but it's definitely a great game and really immersive. It's great to accelerate through a corridor with that sweet 3D.

Just got another run in, here's my best so far.  Pretty fun/immersive game and feels overall well-made. I think I might try to beat it outside the contest. redalarm_score2.jpeg.a01f2f670c20067bb6d1aa7c9c9c6ae8.jpeg

So earlier in the week I thought my batteries were bad (it's been a long time since I've fired up the ol' VB), but then noticed it started having display issues.  Ordered a gamebit and took it apart. Seemed the ribbon cable got nudged. Luckily, was able to fix it by 3d printing a bracket! (white piece in picture)



Rescued virtual boy, now I just need to improve my game lol.
