The Dalai Llama has organised a martial arts contest for animals of all species to prove their skills, and you are competing in it. There are a wide variety of furry creatures to take on, and finally the Dalai Llama himself. Brutal: Paws of Fury is a one-on-one fighting game across a variety of levels, with mostly outdoor terrain. You can choose of the many characters. Throughout the game, your character travels across Dalai Llama's island, fighting a series of duels before getting to the final showdown. During a duel, you can punch and kick your opponent, try to use special attacks on him/her, or use a "taunt" that restores a bit of your health. Each battle lasts a number of rounds (how many - that is determined in the options menu); once one combatant has won that number of times during the battle, he wins. If the computer-controlled player won, it's game over (but you can still use a continue to start the fight anew); if you won, you move on to the next opponent. Once you have defeated them, you can watch an ending animation, different depending on the character you have chosen. Instead of beginning a whole new game, you can fight a single duel, choosing the opponent and terrain. You can choose to fight either a computer-controlled opponent or another human player. The visuals lean towards cutesiness, which makes a change from the gore of Mortal Kombat and the metal of Rise of the Robots.
In the console versions, you start the game without special moves, but get a new one after each successful best-of-three bout. The computer versions drop this feature, though.
Brutal: Paws of Fury was a Mortal Kombat clone made by Gametek in 1995. Easily as good as Mortal Kombat, it servers a good amount of difficulty and fun.
The Dhalai Llama has orgnized a fighting school. You must work your way through the ranks, eventually fighting Dhalai Llama himself.
There are many different fighters to choose from, all animals, giving the game a cutesy feeling. Mortal Kombat, eat your heart out. There should not be any problem choosing your favorite animal to fight with. You have choices ranging from hares, to lions, foxes, and even roosters.
The graphics in the game are amazing, creating a perfect cartoonish feel to the game. Each character stands upright and has their own fighting style, each very funny to watch. After every battle, your character will learn a new special move that will make gameplay a little easier. The character has six main attacks and a few special moves. Fortunately, these moves are not hard to pull off.
Gameplay is action-packed and fast-paced, making it sometimes a little hard to keep up with the opposing character.
Music is good, but kind of average for the genre. Definitely a game worth checking out!
One of the more successful Mortal Kombat-inspired fighting games, Brutal: Paws of Fury is an innovative game that features cartoon animals doing kungfu moves. With names like Foxy Roxy, Kung Fu Bunny, and Psycho Kitten, the game has a great sense of humor that fans of Earthworm Jim will enjoy.
Each character that you can control (12 in all) has 6 different attacks, not to mention several combos and special attacks. The graphics are excellent, and the animals are large and very well animated. Compared to the console versions (e.g. for Super Nintendo and SEGA Genesis), this PC port is inferior due to the disappointing lack of kungfu "belt system" (i.e. advancement in rank) and the great CD soundtrack and fun video cutscenes/clips present in the SEGA CD version. Still, this is a fun, innovative, and immensely playable game that remains a lot of fun many years later. For the "definitive" version, though, you should hunt for the SEGA CD version instead. If you like the game, be sure to also check out Brutal: Paws of Fury Remix, an excellent fanmade remake/update on this site.
After a huge success of Mortal Kombat games, a lot of companies begun making their own fighting models. Gametek came up with a rather original game featuring martial arts animals and did a good job. Most of Brutal games were made for consoles, but one was also released for PC. This is that game.
You have to select one of the offered fighters, then beat the others in order to... win something I guess. All the characters are nicely drawn and have names such as Foxy Roxy, Kung Fu Bunny or Psycho Kitten. Each character has 6 different kicks plus a few combos and special attacks. Brutal is not a hard game, but it's definitely not the easiest one as well!
The graphics are nice, cartoon looking and the sound is pretty nice. Two player mode is quite fun and strongly recommended! Have fun with those kung fu animals!
