From MobyGames:

   A building is on fire and you have to rescue babies jumping (jumping?) from the building. A two man fire fighter team is the only thing between life and certain death for the bouncing babies. Use the fire fighter stretcher/trampoline to bounce the babies safely into the ambulance. The gameplay is based on a Game & Watch game called Fire.
   The game has only three keys to play (1, 2, 3) which represents the positions where you can place your fireman team: left, middle, or right. Anticipate where the babies will fall from their jumping angle. Multiple and faster babies will jump off the building as you advance in the game.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Bouncing Babies was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
