Nintendo Game and Watch Fire
Fire was the fourth Game & Watch game to be released. It was made by Nintendo Research & Development 1 and released on July 31, 1980 (product number RC-04 under the Silver series). It was one of the most popular games in the Game & Watch series. Due to Fire’s popularity, another version was released on December 4, 1981 (product number FR-27, shown on the photo). That version was part of the Wide Screen series.
In the Silver Screen version, people are falling from a burning building. The player controls two firemen who carry a trampoline. They have to bounce all the people to a waiting ambulance. When they get a person in the ambulance the player scores 1 point. But if a person hits the ground, the player loses a life. There are three lives. If the player loses them all they lose the game. In the Wide Screen version, gameplay is very similar except there are a few changes. The biggest change of all is the fact that the player only needs to bounce a person to score a point instead of having to get them in the ambulance. Another change is that the Wide Screen version was more colorful and had better graphics than the Silver Series version. [From WikiPedia]
