Translation from another site...

A Legend Returns.

Do you still remember the good old Amiga classics?
With Switchfire you get to experience the Amiga Feeling again, with modern 3D Graphics!

The end of days. Modern civilization has been brought to the brink of annihilation. The great cities of old resemble nothing so much as piles of rubble. In the midst of the debris and ash of the old world, groups of survivors form the final resistance of mankind against the military machine overlords.

As a member of one of these groups, it is your task to combat the forces of the machines and destroy them all, or die trying...

Features:
- 15 levels to fight your way trough, each with their own boss.
- 3 worlds: Desert, Rural, Cityscape
- 3 vehicles: Jeep, helicopter, boat
- Hundreds of enemy encounters per level !
- Multiple available Upgrades e.g. tripple SHOT, Side SHOT, jump rockets, etc.
- 2-player-coop on one screen

Update directx or gfx card drivers.. Looks absolutely stunning for a top down shooter but it just isn't frantic

Yup it's being remade, and Dan Malone (I think) is involved directly and wants to maintain what the original add whilst bringing it bang upto date There will even be the option of a top down view like the original

I played the Speccy version the other day with a hack to allow the mouse to control the chopper! Was pretty easy then but fun.

in terms of remakes have you tried SWIV Decimation

[edit] just read the post above about SWIV Decimation - whoops!
