Date of Release: 4th December 1981
Model Nr: FR-27
Fire starts of with a fire in a flat, so lots of humans are jumping down from a balcony. You have to move two firemen who have a spring-board in their hands. If the people land on it, they're thrown back in the air and also a bit to the right side. After throwing back each human three times they land in a ambulance.
In game A the people jump only from the fourth floor, whereas in game B they also jump from the third floor, so it's a bit more difficult.
Maximum score is 999 and when the score reaches 200 & 500 points all misses are cancelled.
Cheats and tricks:
Speed increases with score. With each 100 points, speed returns to normal so
you can take a breather before it start to get faster again.
1 point for every time you receive an evacuee.
You get one miss, if you fail to receive an evacuee and he falls on the ground. Three misses (shown as angel marks on the screen) and the game ends.
If you hold in Game A or Game B key the highest previous score will be displayed. The highest score will disappear if the ACL switch is pressed or if the batteries are detached. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about five minutes. A game is not interrupted even if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing.
Issue Differences (click to enlarge pictures)
The table will show how to tell the different Issues that were made:
The battery covers seem to have a number on the back, but they seem to vary a lot and I won't even speculate what the difference is.
