    A) About the game
         
    The Ignition Factor is the Super NES game in which you are a firefighter. Your 
    main goals are to: 1) rescue as many people and items as possible in the given 
    amount of time, and 2) put out as much of the fire as you can. The points you 
    get are based on: 1) the amount of time that you have left, 2) the number of 
    people rescued, and 3) the items that you bring out. You will also get a 
    certain amount of "Event Points" for each stage. If you can get at least 5,000 
    points in all of the stages combined, you will be given access to the bonus 
    mission. This game was released in 1994 by Jaleco USA. (For those of you who
    don't know, this game was actually inspired by the movie Backdraft!)
