A unique racing and combat game set on the water was released for Nintendo’s 8-bit home console on this month in history.
Cobra Triangle, developed by Rare and published by Nintendo, was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the U.S. during the month of July 1989.
The game has the player control an armed boat from an isometric perspective. In the game, the player must race other boats, battle enemies, rescue swimmers in distress, or stop bombs from blowing up across a variety of levels.
The games soundtrack was made by noted gaming composer David Wise, who worked on numerous games, including the Donkey Kong Country series.
Cobra Triangle was later released on the Xbox One compilation, Rare Replay.
