A pretty good fast paced rogue like platformer are taking place in a comic book. You are killing enemies using a meele weapon, a gun and some grenades. There are a lot of option for the weapons and also after every run you have the option to upgrade your character.
There is a lot of enemies, minibosses and bosses, after you beat the boss of the Act you are in for the first time even if you die on the next stage, it unlocks the option in a new run to start from the new Act.
Funny and nice short story of the dev, great music and beautiful art. The game took me around 8 hours to beat, but it have more to it and i will probably keep trying for the 100% even though i think is kinda hard to get.
Το Fury Unleashed είναι ένα πολύ καλοφτιαγμένο roguelike, platformer γρήγορου ρυθμού. Σκοτώνεις εχθρούς είτε με meele όπλο είτε κάποιο πιστόλι είτε με χειροβομβίδες. Υπάρχουν πολλές επιλογές για όπλα και κάθε φοράς που τελειώνεις ένα run μπορείς να ξοδεύεις πόντους που μάζεψες για να αναβαθμίσεις το χαρακτήρα σου. Επίσης πολύ πλάκα έχει η επιλογή διαφορετικού κεφαλιού.
Πολλοί εχθροί, mini bosses, bosses και τη πρώτη φορά που καταφέρνεις να βγάλεις κάποιο boss για πρώτη φορά στο επόμενο run, έχεις την επιλογή να ξεκινήσει το παιχνίδι από το επόμενο Act.
Ωραία μουσική, ευχάριστη ιστορία για τον dev υπέροχα σχεδιασμένα καρτουνίστικα γραφικά. Μου πήρε περίπου 8 ώρες για να το βγάλω το παιχνίδι.

Review from Steam

My recommendation: Buy this game.
Regardless of if you think you'll like it or not, regardless of if it is on sale or not. If you have the money, and because you are already considering getting it (since you are reading this review), buy this game.
Here are the reasons:
The developer is just amazing. They care about their product, they react to the community feedback, they are even checking the reviews to proactively scout bug reports (see their response to my original review (left at the bottom of this one for transparency) as to how I know).
The game runs well, is overall extremely fun, well balanced, highly re-playable, and still challenging even after dozen of playtime hours.
Fun co-op local games that aren't "4 player sofa-evening" games aren't all that common anymore. This one reminds me much more of my childhood evenings spent at my friend's place eating junk in pajamas until their mom would come and "coerce" us to go to bed...
The art is great. There is a bit of story too, not too much, but enough if you want one. The general atmosphere is rather cool too.
All in all, if I had to buy it again, I'd definitely buy it again. This game's great. Developer's awesome. I can't wait to try it on the Steam Deck, I think it will be very nice to play it on it.
And for the record, the problem that made me post my original review has been entirely fixed after an email exchange with the developer in less than a week from the original review submission. 👍
Update: I have since tried it on a steam deck for a couple minutes, and it runs great and looks amazing. If you are searching for a great game for the deck, you can go ahead and get it!
Original review for transparency:
This game has a MAJOR problem with the gamepad controls and the mouse: as soon as you move the mouse (even the smallest amount), or touch the keyboard (alt-tab, press a key by mistake, etc), the keyboard/mouse controls are "activated", and won't get disabled.
As a consequence, the character will then aim by default wherever the mouse is, therefore making it borderline impossible to play with anything but the keyboard and mouse, which really sucks. The fix for this is trivial: disable the keyboard/mouse whenever the input for all players on screen are assigned to a controller. But it's not implemented.
Too bad, the game is otherwise really nice.

This is Contra

Review from Steam

I haven't completed this game yet, but I am enjoying it thus far.
Level design reminds me of Comix Zone.
Visuals are vividly cool.
Music is epic.
Playing local co-op is fun, but I've progressed further solo.
Character customization is okay.
Ah yes, a good range of weapons.
The combo system is fun and rewarding.
Bosses are challenging.
I recommend this game.
Edit: This is late, but, I completed the game. Twas fun! Now to grind for those perfection achievements.

Review from Steam

One of the best (but also one of the hardest) platformers I've ever played. You defeat enemies with both your gun and melee weapons, and by doing so without getting hit your combo meter rises. The higher your combo, the more perks you get to help you to beat the game. This works surprisingly well, and the game offers a huge variety in weapons, enemies and bosses to keep you hooked for many hours.
The default (hard) difficulty is very hard imo and requires a lot of practice (and luck). I've never managed to finish the final boss of the second comic at this difficulty setting. Luckily there's an easy difficulty available, where you can tweak all settings to your own liking. This is really great to prevent frustration, more games should offer this.
Very, very recommended!

Review from Steam

This is a fantastic roguelike 2D shooter that is well worth the price of entry, on discount or not. Far too many roguelikes feel like players need to be punished for dying, they believe that taking everything away is a fun concept, but they often fail to properly balance the game in a meaningful way that doesn't leave the player feeling like their time is being wasted.
Every new game of Fury Unleashed I get better, I get further and I am always grinding on those ink blots to upgrade my player for the future. They are often generous with the drops that you are given and even when you don't find an upgrade, you can convert them to ink. The game also allows you to carry at least two firearms to swap between and I really appreciate that.
This is what you'd get if they combined metal slug with a RPG and they've done a very good job.

Review from Steam

Play solo, in local or online co-op, expand your weaponry, and upgrade your hero with each run. All that to find out why has your creator lost his faith in you and to prove him wrong.
Fury Unleashed is a 2D Sidescrolling Stick-Shooter Run-and-Gun Rouge-Lite Comicbook Adventure. You play as the comics hero Fury, who is customizable. As Fury, you're on a quest to make your writer feel better about his trade. To do so you must blast and hack your way through the Comicbook pages and become the ultimate Hack and Blast Hero.
Don't let the Gameplay and flow fool yourself. It's a "RUN AND GUN" Type of gameplay where it definitely shines the faster you are and the most combo you do. It's a combo-type of game.
The game is therefore heavily set on kill combos and fast-paced action. You can even run a whole level on a single combo if you're fast enough. With a ton of weapons, and enemies the game is a non-stop action fest. Being a Rouge-Lite it's surprisingly forgiving in what you lose on death, but every time you die, you get stronger, and off to the pages of the comic once more and put your skill points into yourself in order to upgrade. You will be in a constant state of Die and Retry, but this only furthers what you're capable of. The Game definitely shines in co-op - I've played this Game with my brother for 5 hours and completed the game on hard with 80% Completion.
The soundtrack is perfect for the mood and keeps the pace rolling. The graphics are creamy smooth, even in the most intense times. The controls are super responsive lending way to very satisfying gameplay. There is an easy mode, that's customizable, allowing you to tone down the game, great for new players. One of the most intense Run-And-Gun games I've played in a long time. Either new to the genre or a long time fan Fury unleased is a treat of a game.
Only con: The price. I could've finished it way faster but I'm also playing videogames since I can think. You might need longer if you're a casual but videogame veterant will complete the game in less than 4-5 hours. I personally think its too much on what it asks without a discount but I got this game in a fanatical bundle and paid less then 50 cents. Absolutely worth it!
