Description

Return Fire is the spiritual successor to Fire Power and it fits in both the strategy and action genres. You can take control of one of 4 vehicles, a jeep, helicopter, tank and a missile launching vehicle (but actually called The Armoured Support Vehicle (ASV).

There are are two ways to win, the easier one would be to capture the enemy's flag by bringing it to your bunker with the frail Jeep. This is the main objective. The other way to win is to destroy your enemy, a secondary objective.

Trivia

The game features a classic music score, including Richard Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries when using the helicopter (think Apocalypse Now), In the Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg with the ASV and Mars - The Bringer of War by Gustav Holst for the tank. The jeep features two songs: Flight of the Bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and the popular William Tell Overture by Gioacchino Rossini when a flag is being carried.

The introduction is a piece from Verdi's Dies Irae and the player is greeted by a portion of Handel's Hallelujah chorus from his Messiah oratorio when completes a level.
