Product Description

Product Description

World War II is in its final days. Your mission is to escort the carrier USS Wasp to port for repairs. Along the way, you will fly 15 sorties in an F6F Hellcat fighter plane to destroy enemy craft that might pose a threat to the Wasp. Luckily, you are armed with a wide variety of weapons, some of the most useful being bombs, rockets, and torpedoes. However, use these weapons wisely, as they affect only certain types of enemies. To keep from being shot down, there are several maneuvers you can use like barrel rolls, dive bombs, and the split S. After eliminating all of the targets in a particular mission, you must return to the Wasp and land if you crash, the mission is a failure. Will you be able to get the Wasp (and yourself) home safely? Play WINGS OF FURY to find out.

Wings of Fury is a terrific action game that puts you in the cockpit of a WWII Wildcat fighter-bomber, where you'll pound targets and engage in dogfights from a side-scrolling perspective using a variety of weapons.

Most side-scrollers focus on furious action rather than aiming to accurately recreating real-world combat. Wings of Fury injects at least some realism into the mix, forcing users to think about things like gravity and maneuvering time. Bombing requires a great understanding of angles and relative speeds. You even have to build up speed to take off from your carrier. In addition, you must occasionally land for repairs.

The color graphics are good, especially considering this game is backward-compatible with older black-and-white Game Boys. The animation of the Wildcat is especially impressive, allowing for precise diving attacks. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Simulation aspects add immensely to gameplay
  • Works with any kind of Game Boy
Cons:
  • Uses passwords instead of battery saves
  • Very hard to master

Wings of Fury was one of my favorite games to play on the Apple IIgs. It had killer graphics and animation for its time, and I loved its physics model and your ability to attack anything (including your own carrier if you wanted to).
The color gameboy version of Wings of Fury is somewhat different, and a little disappointing. The physics model is much simplified, and you almost never stall or have trouble taking off or landing. In order to maintain a more tame video game rating, they removed the enemy foot soldiers you used to strafe with such satisfaction with a single jeep that re-arms blown up turrets. The AI has been dumbed down as well, and dogfights with enemy planes don't have the same thrill they did on a green Apple II monitor.
They did add a few neat maneuvers, such as a barrel roll and split-s, but they are mostly eye candy and not that useful. If you can find this game for cheap and want to re-live (sort-of) the old computer gaming experience, I'd recommend it.

A trouly miraculous piece of work that the developers of "Wings of Fury" managed to complete. Wings of Fury, one of my all time favourite Amiga games, looks just like the real thing, and plays accordingly. The gameplay and the graphics, as well as the long term motivation for this game are superb due to the nicely varying missions. Get this if you like 16 bit both-side-scrolling shooters with a twist!

This game is preety good. It would probably be better if it was a Gameboy Color only game. You go through 15 levels using dive-bombing, dogfighting, and torpedo-bombing skills. You control the F6F in the third person view, so if you don't like to be in the cockpit of the plane, you might not like the game too much, though I liked it.
