Ran around frantically in my room quickly: I realized I was superman and could lift a bed in a split second in a disaster. With my new power, I was able to carry my items away from the fire, avoiding damage.

+1 :)

*drags all items into the fire*

*rereads game description*

Ohh, you're supposed to move things AWAY from the fire.


That aside, I wasn't exactly clear on what to do in the game. From what I gather, you must move things around so that they don't get consumed by the fire. But there's nowhere to move things off of, and things catch on fire at random it seems - there's no indication of which items will burst into flames next.

The biggest issue, however, is that something seems to constantly flicker in front of the screen, making it very irritating to concentrate on the actual gameplay itself. I mean, overall, I think the game could work effectively if there was some sort of warning indication of what you have to move out of the way, and if the graphics didn't constantly flicker stuff. The music's pretty appropriate though. Graphics are nice too.

Loved the gameplay, but it would be great if you had a bit more time to work on the graphics. When it scaled to the size of my monitor, everything went extremely blurry.

Nice music, but picking up the items isn't always consistent.
