FX Fighter is a 3D fighting game similar to Virtua Fighter by SEGA. You choose one of the eight comic book style characters to become the greatest fighter in the universe.

Each character has its own special / hidden moves as well as a planet of their own housing the gruesome challenges with 3rd-person flying camera perspectives...

The artificial intelligence for the enemies is somehow wired to the speed of the machine (probably unintentionally). This has the bizarre and frustrating effect of making your enemies in the game play better the faster a machine you play on. On its target platform of a 486/66, the AI worked appropriately for its level. On a Pentium 120, the "easy" difficulty played like "hard". (On a Pentium 233, you can forget about winning unless you're an action fighter maniac and have the special moves of the characters memorized.)


FX Fighter is the most well-publicized game that uses the BRender engine. Rumor has it that FX Fighter started life as a demo of what BRender could do -- a technology demo -- then was gradually fleshed out into a game.
