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.
