Overview

Megumi Rescue (loosely translated to "Fire Brigade Rescue") is a "ball-and-paddle" game developed by Sega (in conjunction with Aicom) and published by Sega for the Sega Mark III exclusively in Japan on July 30, 1988.

One of the four official games requiring the Paddle Control peripheral (the others being BMX Trial: Alex Kidd, Galactic Protector, and Woody Pop), Megumi Rescue was originally planned as an arcade game by Aicom prior to that version being cancelled. Players control a trio of firefighters as they try to rescue the inhabitants of burning buildings through unconventional means (using a life net as a trampoline).

During each level, players control two of these firefighters with the controller's wheel, as they use their life net both to bounce the third firefighter in the air and to catch civilians that jump off the building on their own. As the level progresses, the fire spreads to other rooms, forcing civilians in that room to jump off. As the main firefighter bounces around, players use one of the two buttons on the controller to interact with each window and retrieve the trapped inhabitant. Each level is completed once either all inhabitants are taken care of or the building itself is extinguished (using one of two rare power-ups).

There are 30 levels that must be completed before the game is won.
