About the Story

This may be just one of the job hazards that you have to put up with in your line of work, but still, you're not really a big fan of apartments being set on fire. (Unless you're doing it, which is only when there's a good cause.)

So now, as the fire crackles hungrily towards you, you have only moments to decide: what are you going to do?

A good intro game, April 3, 2016

Brisk yet descriptive, it plays very quickly if you're accustomed to IF. If you're not, this is as good a place to try the genre as any - what you see is exactly what you get.

(The canon of intro-to-IF-games consists of large, intricate games. Which are great, but there's also something to be said for a game with immediate gratification, and this is it for a beginner.)

Recommended for: a pick-me-up when you're stuck on another, much harder IF puzzle.

A short, easy one move game, February 13, 2016

This game disappointed me in its shortness and easiness. A one move game, like the other fingertips games, you'd think being short and easy would be fine. But this game has promise, seems like it would have more depth.

You are an undercover spy whose house is on fire, and you have to get out. Examining the objects will quickly tell you what to do, and then you're gone.

Polished, with good writing, but not compelling.
