Game Review

Fire Power is a competitive two-player game created by Silent Software originally for the Amiga and released in 1987 by Microillusions. There were also DOS and Commodore 64 versions, released in 1988 and 1989.

In Firepower, two tanks have to compete on a battlefield and try to destroy the enemy fortress. The game is probably inspired by the 1980 Namco arcade Tank Battalion or the classic Atari game Combat. It belongs to the so-called "combat arena" genre. It's possible to challenge a friend either via modem, null modem, or split screen. Nowadays, you will probably use the split-screen mode unless you plan to install the game on real machines. You can also play against the computer, but it's not the same. Player vs. player is entertaining, while the single-player mode is a bit too hard.

The top-down graphics are simple but effective; excellent sound effects, especially explosions, contribute to creating a great atmosphere. The gameplay is rich enough: you have cannons, mines, and soldiers. You can also go and rescue your soldiers from the enemy base. Level design is a bit crazy sometimes, but this doesn't change the fact that the game can produce great memories if - as I said - you have a friend to play with.

One of the first, and still one of the best, competitive games for the Amiga.
