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'.

It has to be said up front - this is most always the case with Digital Comics , but I must warn you that you will probably miss most of the game if you do not understand Japanese. There are ways around this problem as you are often asked to pick up choices. With time, and somehow patience - a lot of patience - you may figure out what to do next ... to a certain point. Here you have it. Letís now talk about the game itself. I wonder if this game actually tells a completely original adventure of Cobra... there's no question that the Digital Comic form suits the world of Cobra pretty well - graphics, without being outstanding, really fit the game (Cobra 2 is actually much better). My understanding of Japanese is limited but I nevertheless had fun playing the game. It has certainly aged a lot and I much prefer Cobra 2 for that matter, but the execution is solid and the experience fun if you can read (and understand) a little Japanese.
