Description

A top-down view of two tanks battling it out trying to blast their way into each other's fortress. Guns, helicopters, and I can never forget the little "splut" sound the PC speaker made every time your tank ran over an infantry man....

One of the central gameplay ideas of the game was to play head to head with someone else, either via a split screen, modem, or null modem cable.

Trivia

German index

On August 31, 1988, Fire Power was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS; probably because you could run over soldiers with your tank, causing them to "leak their blood out". For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.
