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

The setting and goal is easily explained: You are a firefighter with the task to rescue all kids from a dangerous fire site.

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!

Game Features:

  • exciting & unique fire-fighting gameplay for real NES hardware
  • more than 32 challenging levels with many hidden secrets
  • a wide array of power-ups and enemies

Differences between the artwork for FC and both NES versions:

Back in the ‘80s, FC games were originally created with only the Japanese players in mind. As the games gained popularity in the West, new versions that had to be adopted to the players’ needs were needed as the original art was often considered childish among other things. New illustrators took care of new, “compatible” artwork that in most cases didn’t at all resemble the originals. Very good examples are Mega Man 1, Mega Man 2, Ys, Shadow Dancer and many, many more. Mega Man 2 was even released in four different versions: Japanese, American, European and British.

Especially for this release and based on Karu_gamo's original illustrations and artwork, we divided the NES version into two different markets, EU US. Not only is there a different artwork for every version but we have also decided to release the EU version in the same small box size as it was known over thirty years before. The manuals will additionally reflect the era of small boxes being either folded sheets or b/w manual booklets. We at First Press Games are passionate players for decades and we are paying homage to the designs of the golden era recreating it as best as possible. We hope you will enjoy our passion and nostalgia the same way we do.
