Fun Fact: The boat in Cobra Triangle moved from level to level via a set of retractable helicopter blades.

Cobra Triangle was a boat driving/shooting game developed by Rare. It featured an isometric perspective like another vehicle-based game from Rare called R.C. Pro-Am, and comparisons are often drawn between the two.

There were 25 missions to beat in Cobra Triangle, and they ranged from races-with-combat to protecting people in the water from being stolen away by other boats, and every fifth mission was usually a boss fight. Power-up management was really important to success or failure. Players would pick up power-up pods and then expend them on whichever bonus they selected, like increased speed or better weapons.
