Smokey Bear (lost build of cancelled Atari 2600 game; 1983)
Smokey Bear is a cancelled 1983 Atari 2600 game based around Smokey the Bear, an American advertising mascot by Ad Council. The game would have been developed and published by Data Age and would have been an educational game targeting children ages 4 to 8.
Very little information is known about the title apart from that the player would help Smokey prevent forest fires. Along with Data Age's other licensed game Mr. Bill's Neighborhood, both games were finished and ready to be released but were cancelled due to the fact that their previous licensed game Journey Escape did so poorly that they couldn't afford to pay the licensing fees. However, the Video Game Crash of 1983 would have also likely affected the games' releases.
No prototypes or other information on the game have surfaced.
