About Ion Fury

About this game

While Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force, when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes the members of his cybernetic cult onto the streets of Neo DC, she knows it’s time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.

Her quest to slay Heskel leaves a trail of carnage throughout huge, multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, more secret areas than we can count, and inhuman foes behind every corner. There’s no regenerating health here; stop taking cover and start running and gunning.

Shelly’s crusade to take down Heskel’s army will see her leave destruction in her wake with a wide arsenal of weapons, complete with alternate fire modes and different ammo types. Her signature revolver, the tri-barreled Loverboy, brings enemies pain and players pleasure with both single shots and Old West-style hammer fanning action. Who needs a regular shotgun when you can load buckshot into your grenade launcher? Violent, over-the-top Bowling Bombs rip enemies apart with ease.

Ion Fury laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean we've ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You betcha. Widescreen, controller support, and Auto Saves? 3D Realms and Voidpoint have taken the best of both worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.

What to expect from the full version of ION FURY upon release:

  • The true successor to classic shooters such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood.
  • Experience the original BUILD engine on steroids, pumped up and ready to rock again after 20 years!
  • Duck, jump, climb, swim, and blast your way through 7 exciting zones packed with multiple levels of mayhem!
  • A beautiful game world assembled from thousands of hand-crafted textures and sprites
  • An awe-inspiring arsenal of devastating weapons, including multiple ammo types and alternate fire modes. Tri-barreled revolvers, grenade launchers, and heat-seeking smart bombs are your best friends!
  • The classic '90s FPS action you love, meshed with modern inventions like locational damage and seamless level transitions
  • ZERO PROCEDURAL GENERATION. All levels are hand made and full of multiple paths, cool effects, and complex set pieces!
  • Thumping soundtrack comprised of true tracked module music, in authentic FastTracker 2 format
  • Easy access on to level editor and other development tools on day one, plus Steam Workshop support

This games does not just feel like an old school fps game, it actually is one. You can feel the age, when you see the launcher pop up, when you have those small quirks of an old engine upon game startup. Everything throws you back to a time, that you may or may not have experienced. There is two types of flavors for boomer shooters, some are just like the old ones, with better tech, settings and performance, while keeping the gameplay and style the same (this game), and some try to achieve an old school vibe with a brand new engine and all the bells and whistles you may imagine from a modern title. I, personally, are more fond the latter part, but let me just add, this game was still a lot of fun overall. What surprised me the most is, that I usually get lost in these types of hands-off, no guidance games and the reason for this is, that with subtle color coding and giving you CCTV streams of where you should probably go, you almost always know where to go. The levels themselves range from awesome to a bit drab and boring, but the cool, but sometimes really hard, boss fights make more than up for it. The biggest downside for me is, that due to this being an old games, made in an old engine, that the hit feedback is just bad. Coming from a "boomer shooter, but more modern", which shows you heads popping and damage to enemies, this just feels like the enemies have only two states, alive or dead, nothing in between. For anybody looking for a old school shooter, look at a gameplay video and some other reviews and decide for yourself, as the graphic style will either pull you in or push you off.

One of the few modern boomer shooters worth playing. Looks like Duke Nukem 3D but plays closer to Doom Eternal. The only complaint I have is that when using a controller, you need to enroll in the beta version of the game on Steam to fix a bug with the SMGs

It's worth it for the 3D Realms splash screen at the beginning. Everything else should be as expected. Great old school fps!
