This remake of Space Fury, is my second (of three) games made for the Retro Remakes Competition 2008.
The original arcade game was made in 1981 by Gremlin.
|Download for Windows XP and above.|
|Download for Mac OSX (Intel).|
The player pilots a spaceship and battles against 20 waves of alien ships led by a 4 boss creatures that taunts you before each round. Every third round the player can dock to receive extra firepower.
The original game has 5 levels and 1 boss but this remake has 4 times that – 20 levels and 4 bosses.
When (if) you reach level 20 it will repeat indefinitely once you beat it, but it will take lots of skill.
When you get a highscore you can upload your score to the server and see you score compared to other players.
Hints: How to get ahead in Space Fury?
Well, for each wave you have to defeat in increasingly higher amount of enemies than the previously one. When you have killed the amount of enemies required to go to the next level, the game will keep spawning enemies if you leave less than 3 enemies on screen for more than a few seconds, so it’s in your best interrest to kill the enemies as fast as possible. You also get a bonus depending of how fast you complete a wave…so you’d better get killin’ commander. Good luck!
