Firecopter intro screen, and game screen

Firecopter is an original, 3-D arcade game where you are patrolling a city, and have to stop arsonists from lighting buildings on fire. You also have to deal with the arsonist's guards; they will try to shoot you down. You can both fire (to kill a guard or arsonist), and use dual water hoses to bring burning buildings under control.

As far as I know, this game from Adventure International was unique to the Coco. This was also Dale Lear's first released Coco game.
Bit of trivia - the game was originally going to be called "Firebug".
