Space Fury
This game is a novelty that quickly wears off and leaves you with a mildly entertaining game. Pity as it could be more, but the programmers seem to put more into their talking alien than in his armada.

The highlight of the game is the talking alien head. His one big eyeball goes back and forth as he taunts you. "So a creature for my amusement, prepare for battle" he spews as his ships come at you. Then as you complete a screen, he taunts you some more. He reminds me of those pesky Frenchmen in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", except he isn't funny. He will taunt you and taunt you some more. But it works as you want to make mincemeat out of his armada and shut his big trap. At the end of the game, he gives you a ranking from adequate (that is as low as I have ever gotten) to more flattering ones like stimulating and ones that I have yet to achieve.

The game itself isn't so interesting. You start off with a one shot ship. As you progress through the levels, you will come to a docking sequence where you dock your ship and get more powerful ships with lots of shots, in multiple directions. The docking is quite easy and if you take a moment, you should always get it.

The enemy start off as four little pieces that come together to form a bigger ship that is capable of shooting fireballs at you. You can shoot the pieces before they form to halt this. One thing to remember is that when the pieces are small, they cannot harm you if you hit them, but once two pieces get together they can kill your ship. So you need to be weary, once they get together.

The enemy ships are pretty much the same, with little differences. Once you get past a few levels, you run out of docks and the alien shuts up. The game gets pretty boring and it is just a matter of honor then. You want to rack up as high a score as possible, so the alien doesn't insult you.

While the novelty of the game will quickly fade, it will entertain you for awhile. Plus, it is always fun to see just how good a rating you can get.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
