Description of Fire Power

Fire Power is a fun "capture the flag" variant that requires careful planning as well as high dexterity. Instead of your legs, you control a tank, looking at the action from a top-down perspective.

Starting from your own garage, you must blast your way to capture your opponent's flag which is hidden in his territory. Guns, helicopters, and infantry ("squish!") add an extra layer of complexity to the traditional capture-the-flag game. One of the game's best features is the ability to play head-to-head against a human player in split-screen mode, null modem, or even modem.

The modem mode wasn't implemented very well, perhaps due to technical limitations (although Dani Bunten's Modem Wars implemented it almost perfectly), but the game is still a lot of fun in 2-player splitscreen mode.

Overall, despite a glitchy modem play, Fire Power is a nice little gem that is great for a few minutes of tank-blasting joy. The game is now freeware, courtesy of Silent Software (now Prolific Publishing). You can download the game here, or from their website.

You hit alt-enter at the same time. That puts DosBox in full screen. Also, you can upload your own screenshots for the game to this website if your not happy with it.

Is there any way to make DOS box load in fullscreen instead of those tiny boxes where you can barely see anything? Also Firepower from this websites really doesn't show much graphics color etc. and I know from photos that it used to be allot better. Is there anything to fix this?

I thought this was called something else. looks the same as the game i played tho. when you die a skull would come up and go 'a ha ha ha HA ha' ? right?

....Oh yeah! Spent quite a few hours playing this one, and I think I still have the disks and manual in a box somewhere, probably rusting away. There was a trainer patch that I don't think I saved that gave you something like 255 of everything you needed and kept it at that - some hex value overload that broke the game and kept you from running out of supplies. ISTR also remembering a particular hex address that if you set it to a value between 2 and 6, your tank speed would multiply accordingly.

Damn good game, tho. Download and enjoy!
