Fire Attack is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Wide Screen series on March 26, 1982. It is a single-screen single-player Game & Watch.
The main character uses a tomahawk-type weapon to protect a fort from burning. The top row of enemies are Indian chiefs who throw firesticks, and the bottom row of enemies are traditional Game & Watch characters who try to set fire to the fort with a match. Two points are earned for each fire blocked. Three misses are allowed, which occur each time the fort catches fire. All misses are erased at 200 points and again at 500; if there aren’t any misses at these times, 5 points are awarded per hit for a period of time.
Fire Attack was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance.
In the Super Smash Bros. series, Mr. Game & Watch has an attack which has him hit opponents with a firestick, referencing Fire Attack.
