The Big Red Adventure is a point-and-click adventure taking place in Russia after Michael Gorbatsjov's Perestroika. You move your character over hand-drawn backgrounds, solving a big mystery that's taking place over an entire continent.

The story is split into three parts and in each part you control one of three characters in the game. You can play a nerdy looking guy, a brainless bodybuilder and a femme fatale.

The people who created this game sure liked alliterations:
The three main characters are called Donna (Fatale), Dino (Fagoli), and Daugh (Nuts). The game itself is described as a "cauldron of cutthroat competition and cruel commercial cossacks".

Amiga version

The Amiga version was originally to be released for the CD32 by Core Design in 1995/96, but they decided to drop it due to the state of the Amiga market at that time. The game was picked up by Power Computing for release in 1997.

Nippon Safes, Inc.

The game Nippon Safes Inc. can be called its prequel which features the same three game characters.
