Pretty tricky stuff but an interesting concept :)

Had to spend some minutes playing it to get used to it, but it was quite interesting. Love the pixelated character design! I wish our artist could do it...maybe eventually!

Was fun to play :) I liked the character graphics and the humorous sounds. It was cool to see a leaderboard, too!

the idea is interesting and changing the speed is a well atemped to fit to the theme, but i think it stars to hard and the controls arent good enough for fast gameplay. And why is there no border on the end of the screen, that makes no sence.

Cool idea - I wish the character had a lot less lift though, because it was very easy to unintentionally fly off the top of the screen while trying to douse an area.

I'd also recommend really simplifying your ingame instructions as much as possible. Even having to read just a couple of sentences can make players lose interest quickly, when the game could just as well be described as "Use your jetpack to put out fires! WASD + Space" Better to let the player figure out the details through the actual gameplay imo

Jet pack as extinguisher, that's a cool idea. Watching the civilians burn and run around was pretty funny for some reason. Good job!
