A world record speedrun of Wario Land for the Virtual Boy

Relive the days of the Virtual Boy with world record speed and without the red!

The Virtual Boy was derided upon release for a lot of reasons but looking at this world record speed run of Wario Land with a pair of green hindsight-and-nostalgia-tinted glasses, it looks like fun. The graphics are solid, offering a go-between for the portability of the Game Boy and the power and graphical output of the SNES, and the gameplay is immersive. It’s worth noting that this speedrun uses a green monochrome palette compared to the Virtual Boy’s original red palette (can’t believe that got the okay) and thank goodness it does.
