Red Zone is a video game developed by Zyrinx and published by Time Warner Interactive in 1994 for the Sega Genesis console.

A pre-release version of this game - Hardwired - has been deemed by the (now defunct) developer as publicly distributable.[2][3]

Software attributes[edit]

The game, although obscure, is notable for using a number of technologies that were not normally prevalent at the time on a console such as the Megadrive/Genesis.
