The Ignition Factor (SNES / Super Nintendo)

Game Profile

The classic fire-fighting game, The Ignition Factor, is back, and this time on Virtual Console!

Take control of a brave firefighter as he battles to save people from towering infernos and flame-filled factories.

You have a large variety of equipment to help you with your task, plus the hero isn't afraid of getting physical and kicking objects, climbing ropes and jumping to help him get to all areas. But time is definitely not your friend, as the fires get gradually worse and you slowly run out of breathable air! Different types of fire need to be extinguished with different methods, so you'll need to use your equipment to the best of your ability to save the day.

Aim to use the fire engine and your team-mates to extinguish all the flames you can see! Can you keep your cool and save everyone in a constantly changing environment?

Awesome! This is a game I never got a chance to play when I was younger. I'm really happy Jaleco is giving the VC a second chance. They must have finally made a profit on the games they put up in 2007 lol.

The Firemen was also released outside of Japan, just only in Europe.
