Ion Fury i just don't like 2.5D & # 39; 90s archers, it it is 2.5D & # 39; 90s scanner. Developed by Voidpoint, a studio created by veteran Build modders (the same engine used to create Duke Nukem all those years ago) and published by none other than 3D Realms, Ion Fury has all the hallmarks of a never-ending illegal roadblock. After burning the heels of retro-inspired shooters like Evening, In the midst of Evil and the latest John Romero SIGN, this indie FPS comes with the speed and execution of its roots, offering up to an hour of endless action and exploration.
A game previously known as Ion Maiden (you can guess which team puts developers at a disadvantage) The technology is basic, acting as the origin story for Sherly & # 39; Bombshell & # 39; Harrison, last seen in a more memorable shooter Bombshell as of 2016. The good news is Ion Fury is an unforgettable one, especially because the studio loves the era where the athlete draws inspiration, using his deep Build Engine knowledge to pack as much information as possible into every pixel detail. From the built-up streets the smiling bars and neo DCs – the game's setup – came down with personality.
Ion Fury has a few modern upgrades, such as automatic end points, subtitles and gameplay capabilities at a much higher level than the slow-down & # 39; 90s decisions, but it's still a refreshingly old-school game. Even if you're the type of & # 39; fast, & # 39; rifle & # 39; the kind of player or person who likes to go out of cover to head an enemy who is starting to sell firearms through your browser, Ion Fury won't hold your hand, even if you're in big trouble. This is a game made in the classic corridor's way of thinking: read your patterns, make your gun count and look higher and lower for life, weapons and ammo weapons.
There is some story there, but as with the emergence of Duke's own misconduct, it is the action and structure of the level that made most of the speech. Levels push back, revealing new shortcuts and secret rooms, leading to a backdrop that feels natural as you receive new cards to unlock new doors, collect life, weapons and ammunition as you go. The Ion Fury is not very much in line with its puzzle – it is actually just crazy to open new doors to continue using that level – and you are left in the hope of something more than an old natural encounter.
Voidpoint really pushed this version of Build Engine up to its limit, and while all enemies work just right for cardboard cutting, there are little touches that really sell the whole experience, such as spectacular fire effects – like how to fire enemies burn. with non-incremental rounds on the super-powered SMG – and how to hit the enemy with a shotgun shell will sway them and force them back in a few steps.
Though set in a dystopian world complete with neon-drenched wallpapers and gun-toting androids, Ion Fury's armor is funky, but ultimately ends up feeling unwanted. There is your standard apartment for firearms, rifles and SMGs, but after thirty years of potent firearms, you've left looking for something more creative. Each has its own shooting mode, but the popularity of Ratchet & Clank and Borderlands you've made us a variety of boomstick connectors, and you end up wishing Voidpoint to consider the popularity of Turok rather than Duke Nukem to promote.
Some weapons have won and you are not ready to put yourself down looking for new guns that you slowly unlock as you begin the short campaign of the game. The shot, which opens in the first half hour of the game, is powerful in terms of range and accuracy that you can create distant enemies with a well-placed slug. It's fun and empowering for the player, but it defeats the point of using a wide variety of different weapons and conditions.
Of all the fun that the levels do, the main battles that close out each chapter are certainly unpleasant. Their patterns are unmistakably difficult to understand, but the way each and every one of them throws an endless stream of enemies makes this encounter so much easier. Even the book's preservation is rendered useless in this helo-esque display of bullets and most of the time you have left wants it to end in order to get back to the greatest shotgun return of the great game.
If you are looking for a retro shooter that is not the 25th anniversary of the N64 game, then Ion Fury is a long-awaited love letter. While its weapons and its high-quality combat do not leave much to your memory, the speed and stamina of its rifles and the intensity of its design levels outweigh its potential. If you want to be punished and rewarded by old shooter standards, this is the new / old FPS.
