Fire (originally known as Fireman Fireman in North America) is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Silver series on July 31, 1980, and as a part of the Wide Screen series on December 4, 1981. It is a single-screen single-player Game & Watch.
The player controls two firemen who carry a trampoline and must catch people who fall from a burning building and bounce them into a waiting ambulance. The player is awarded 3 points for each person who reaches the ambulance, and loses one of their three lives for each person who hits the ground.
Fire was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery for Game Boy, Game & Watch Gallery 3 for Game Boy Color and Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance. It was also rereleased as part of the Nintendo Mini Classics.
In the Super Smash Bros. series, Mr. Game & Watch has a move called “Fire”, which has two firemen launch him upwards with a trampoline, referencing Fire. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, he then floats down with a parachute, referencing Parachute. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, the stage Flat Zone 2 shifts between several layouts, one of which is based on Fire. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the stage Flat Zone X shifts between several layouts, one of which is based on Fire.
