Cobra is a digital comic based on the Japanese space adventure series by Buichi Terasawa. The main character, the yellow haired and charismatic Cobra, is the most famous space pirate in the whole universe and he is always accompanied by his robotic and sexy robotic lady friend Andromeda- in short, he's a sort of space James Bond, but a bit on the dumb side, or at least this is what he wants the space pirates to believe. The secret of Cobra is a powerful psycho-gun hidden in his left arm which makes him unstoppable and indestructible. This digital comic needs a heavy knowledge of Japanese to be fully appreciated and the player will have to know its Japanese by the book in order to defeat the Galactic Guild. The game starts in a large cruise space ship and Cobra wanders around it and gathers information. Simple actions, like 'look' or 'talk' are listed on the right side of the screen and allow the player to interact with the environments and characters. Some parts of the game are more 'interactive' but in very limited ways. As a side note, the game can be saved at any time by pressing 'Select'.
Cobra was released on March 31, 1989 in Japan for 5980 Yen.
