The Earthquake Tower by Remco, ca. 1974

Billed as “the world’s largest playset” and standing a whopping five feet tall, the Remco Earthquake Tower was a mash-up of the biggest Hollywood hits of 1974: The Towering Inferno and Earthquake.

Remco sold it as a sort of rescue game, your goal was to save as many civilians as you could using your copter and fire truck. Remco even included a floppy vinyl record of explosions, sirens, and perilous music to help you simulate this environment; it is, however, tastefully bereft of screams.
