The Big Red Adventure is a sequel to Nippon Safes Inc.. This time the action takes place in Russia after Mikhail Gorbachev's Perestroika. The player again takes the role of Doug Nuts, Dino Fagioli and Donna Fatale and accidentally become embroiled in a plot to restore communism. As a typical point'n'click adventure, you move your character over hand-drawn backgrounds, making actions on objects from your inventory with scenery elements or giving them to different people. The story is split into four parts. The first two parts are initially disconnected from themselves. In each of them you control one of the characters performing different objectives just to let it end on board of the train when all three characters meet again. This is where the game becomes more complicated because the player has to make them cooperate by sharing the objects or information.
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".
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. Although the game was finished and can be completed the last chapter seems to be not entirely polished when compared to DOS version.
Nippon Safes, Inc.
The game Nippon Safes Inc. can be called its prequel which features the same three game characters.
