|Space Fury was released in July 1981 and was the first color vector graphic games. The most notable thing about that hardware platform is that the monitors would often catch on fire. You could lower the chance of this game catching fire by installing a monitor cooling fan and removing the back door.|
Space Fury shipped in the Sega 'convert-a-cab', which was an attractive, but hopelessly generic arcade cabinet with woodgrain sides, and no sideart. Lots of different games came in this cabinet, it wasn't just for Space Fury. The rest of the decorations on this game looked rather amateur. The alien head and logo displayed on the marquee could have easily come out of any 8th grade art class.
* Attract mode :
"Is there no warrior mightier than I?"
"Does anyone dare challenge my imperial fleet?"
* Gameplay :
"So, a creature for my amusement. Prepare for battle!"
"So, you defeated my scouts. Well, my cruisers will destroy you."
"You are starting to annoy me, creature. My destroyers will annihilate you."
"You survived! Warships! Dispose of this annoyance at once."
"Well done. Prepare to battle my entire fleet!"
A sample of the synthesized taunt, 'Prepare for battle!', was used by musical group The Crüxshadows in their song 'Winterborn'.
