Thank you! I agree in that, I do want to increase the speed of combat and I think if I had buffed the speed of the skeletons a bit as well as the fireball speed I could achieve that. I'll play with it after the Jam concludes. I'm, also (literally right now) working on adding a fire rune you can lay down that gets triggered when they walk on it. I'll have to look at the escape issue since I have not seen that one before.
I'm glad you liked it and if I see enough interest I may rebuild it as a co-op game with more than just fire.
