Description

Terrans have won the war for the Coalition, but at a terrible price. It has unleashed the powers of the Bions, warriors bred for battle and victory. After the war ended, Bions started their own war against Humanity... And humanity managed to win again, but Earth was decimated in the process. We thought we had destroyed all the Bions, but apparently we are wrong. A few Bions have survived... and they are rebuilding on the planet named Fury... As a councillor in Council of Peace, the premier peacekeeping force, you will take the advanced fighter and repel the Bion invasion, and eventually destroy the Bion threat once and for all.

Fury³ is basically a Windows adaptation of Terminal Velocity where you pilot a super fighter and kill bazillion targets from first person (default) or third-person viewpoints. The action is fast and furious, with plenty of air and ground threats plus structures to shoot. However, the player has to regulate where to shoot because a certain number of points are deducted for each shot greenery. shrub or tree.

The fighter sequences are interspersed with a bit of tunnel running (inspired by Descent, no doubt) and a lot of shooting. Shoot the weapon pods to release missiles and other goodies which you can use to supplement your own ship.

The game is in full 3D without the need for a 3D video accelerator, though it only supports 320x200 resolution and preferably 256 color only.

Trivia

Engine

Fury³ is based on the same graphics engine as Terminal Velocity.

Expansion

The game was popular enough to spawn an expansion pack called F!Zone, which contains the level editor as well as a bunch of new levels to play on.

Innovations

This was the first game to specifically support the Microsoft Sidewinder digital Joystick.

W32

The Win31 version of the game requires installation of W32s, the "32-bit Windows extension", to work. This is basically a subset of the Win95/WinNT kernel that can be used on Win31 to allow it to run many 32-bit programs.
