A world record speedrun of Wario Land for the Virtual Boy

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.
