Honō no Rangerman, or Blazing Rangers, is an original one-screen action game for FC- or NES-compatible hardware, realized in the style of '80s arcade games.

Equipped with a water hose, you can choose between two characters and will fight an ever-growing wall of fire and a plethora of dangerous enemies to open up the way and save the children. It's also important not to dawdle around - they might get burned if you don't take some risks and hurry to their rescue!
