DOS - 1996
Description of Red Alert
A very rare promotional game for Johnnie Walker's Scotch Whisky released in 1996, I'll quote Benjamin who contributed this gem:
I have a copy of an obscure game called Johnnie Walker’s Red Alert from 1996 that I would love to share - yet I cannot find anything about it online!
My dad was a fan of Star Trek point and click adventure games of the 1990s and this one is similar – it was released on floppy disk bundled with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label whiskey as a promotion of sorts.
You play a crewman who wakes from sleep aboard a spacecraft; the captain is dead and a bomb is set to blow in 90 minutes. Your challenge is a series of puzzles navigating the ship’s computer to try to defuse the bomb for a chance to win real prize money (at the time!).
I have a soft copy of the game, along with two photos of the front and rear cardboard case and the whisky barcode number password that is required to begin the game. It all fits into a 2MB zip file and runs via an MS-DOS emulator such as DOS-Box.
You will need a code to play the game:
