Fahrenheit (ファーレンハイト) is a 1995 full motion video game by Sega. It is one of five titles to be bundled as a Mega-CD 32X game, taking advantage of the Mega-CD's larger storage space and higher quality audio and the 32X's faster processor and improved graphical output.

In North America Fahrenheit was released as both a Mega-CD and Mega-CD 32X game, and both discs were sold together (you need both discs to play the Mega-CD 32X version, presumably as an attempt at security). In Europe and Japan, only the regular Mega-CD version was released.

Gameplay

Fahrenheit is a simple full motion video game where the objective is to navigate buildings with the D-Pad. There is a strict time-limit represented by oxygen levels in the bottom-right hand corner of the screen - completing the objective gains more oxygen, but wasting time or going down the wrong route will deplete it. There are five missions in total.

Without maps (which are printed in the instruction manual), Fahrenheit becomes a game of trial and error, with later stages being impossible without prior knowledge of the floor layout due to the speed oxygen supplies run out.
