Sid the Fireman's life is ruined when he falls into a shrinking machine, whilst dealing with a fire at a shrinking factory. To return to his full glory, he must find five parts of a stretching machine.

The end result is a side-view arcade adventure, in which obstacles must be used to clear paths to obtain all five parts. Many screens have multiple exits, which are not always obvious. Ghosts and ghouls on fixed patterns must be avoided.

Your Sinclair May, 1986 7 out of 10 70


There are currently no topics for this game.



The entire game was written in native Z80 assembly language. Some of the sprite code, jump and landing sequences are identical to those in the Mastertronic game Spellbound.


Both of the authors had fathers who were part of the London Fire Brigade.


The game sold 58,000 copies.
