Cross Fire is a 1991 shoot-'em-up for the Sega Mega Drive by A.I and Kyugo. It is a reskin of the Japan-only Super Airwolf, a game made to tie into Universal Pictures' Airwolf television series; Acclaim held the exclusive rights to publish Airwolf console and handheld games in America and Europe.


The player can choose which of several missions to choose from a map. After choosing a mission, they can choose which shot type, gun type, and bomb to take with them on the helicopter, and will then start the mission. The A button fires the main gun and can be held for rapid fire, B drops a bomb, and C activates the shield.

After this routine, the player has a short period in a larger ship just shooting at obstacles before landing, coming out of the plane, and moving around and shooting Commando-style.
