Fury is another arcade simulation, but this one is different: this game talks! You don't need any special equipment for sound; just turn up the volume on your TV or monitor. Fury has enough good graphics and sound to move it ahead of the rest. It's one of the best games l've ever seen.

The playing field is in the air. You battle countless numbers of enemy air—planes, helicopters, hot air balloons, parachuters, and, after you reach 5000 points, a magnetic air mine. You earn 100 points for shooting an airplane, 100 for helicopters, 2000 for hot air balloons, and 1000 for ramming a parachuter. It's not possible to destroy the mine. A bonus ship is earned after you successfully shoot down Z0 enemy airplanes or helicopters.

One of the best features in this game, and one l believe no one else has for the Color Computer, is the sound. Don't turn your volume up too high or it will sound fuzzy and you won't be able to under—stand the speech. The game says things like "P..."—no, I won't spoil it for you, you should hear it for yourself. The speech is not the only great feature of this game—it also has outstanding graphics.

I think Tim Purves (the author of this game) and Computer Shack did a great job, and I hope to see more of their work in the future!
