The world of the Fur Fighters is a dangerous place. Years ago, an evil general tried to enslave the world of the Furballs. Luckily for them, General Viggo's attempt was foiled and his armies were repelled across the waters. The cutesy inhabitants returned to a peaceful existence and tried to forget the damage done by the would-be dictator.
Yet, a few years later, the general decided to come back in a big way. One day, without warning, he attacked and captured the vast majority of the villagers. The six remaining animals decided to right the wrongs inflicted upon their families. And so the Fur Fighters were born.
The heroes of our story are a motley bunch. As a battle-scarred veteran, Roofus the dog is the natural leader of the team. At a whopping 12 years of age, he also happens to be the oldest member and a cunning warrior. His best friend is a rather unintelligent kangaroo called Bungalow, a strong fighter and a loyal pal to Roofus. Chang the firefox is a counterweight to the brainless nature of Bungalow. The son of a rich Chinese family, he is a well-educated and intelligent fighter.
Next on the list is the beautiful and deadly Juliette. As a cat, she has a natural tendency to ignore the orders of others, and her main struggle is keeping her temper in line with the group. The aquatic member of the team is a penguin named Rico, who joined the Fur Fighters to escape his boring life as a fisherman. A little overconfident, he is still a valued member of the unit. Finally, we have the youngest participant, a day-old dragonette named Tweak. The combination of a natural affinity for weaponry and a desire to save her family makes Tweak a powerful adversary.
Speaking of weaponry, the name of the game is gunplay, a feature designed to set Fur Fighters apart from traditional platform games. The main action takes place with a variety of high-powered weapons; each character is equipped with a standard firearm, with more scattered throughout the level.
The primary objective is the rescue of the baby prisoners of war. In each level, five different children will be hidden away. Using the individual traits of the team is necessary in order to accomplish your goals. For instance, Roofus can tunnel under certain structures to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. Rico the penguin can swim, and Tweak the dragon flies like a bird. In a way similar to Donkey Kong 64, the player will need to use all six characters to complete the objectives of the level.
According to the developers, each level can require up to two hours of in-game action. Acclaim hopes to offer a total of 50 hours of fur-flying fun for solo gamers, while increasing the replay value by including of a four-player mode set from a first-person perspective. Dubbed the Fluffmatch, the action is meant to capitalize on the kill-or-be-killed nature of the game. ~ Bryan Melville, All Game Guide
