I guess if I could actually control the hose, this would have been fun!

Thanks Matteo!

I love the art style of your game, I'll check it out!

i think the game is unbalanced as it takes lots of effort to extinguish a single fire and there're plenty of them left

i felt that i couln't do much(


shift didn't help much either :(

We did kind of lean towards deliberately not letting the player have much control (per the theme), but we might have gone a little overboard!🤣

Thanks for playing the game and giving feedback sidheofhills! We'll keep that in mind when we update it in future.😊

maybe you should've gone even far overboard for player to make it clear that this is a big exaggeration)  like when he tries to poor water on fire it makes it grow as if these were plants) the triky part is to show player clear action/cause move)

because when you've accomplished extinguishing 3 fire from all of them there's a slight hope that it's could be possible if you try harder and if there're more pressure in the hose) but if you keep playing you understand that is unattainable and it makes you sad and hopeless so no fun emotion about you game)

on the other hand if player clearly sees that when he uses a hose the fire grows even more - he'll quickly understand that this is all  a joke) and kinda fun idea)

I couldn't put out any fire :(

Hey WombatBat!

If you hold shift it will give you a boost of hose control for a short time. There are also hidden objectives and some of them are much easier to achieve than putting out the fires. ;)

Thanks for taking the time to download and play our game!
