Released in June 1978 in Japan and USA.
This game is also known as "Smokey Joe
Fire Truck was one of the first games to feature a cooperative feature. One player could either drive the fire engine or the hook and ladder while the computer drove the opposite part. Two players could play where one drove the fire engine while sitting up front while the other player stood in back and controlled the hook and ladder. This game also featured the front player having a horn while the back player had a bell. Neither of these buttons, though, effected game play. This game never really gained a large popular following mostly due to the fact that "Space Invaders
" was released the same year. Nonetheless, it still proved to be somewhat popular just due to the fact it was different.
