Hey what happened to the Ladies Auxiliary???

Anyway, this is my game. I was trying to add a bit of Glorious-y out-there-ness to my game that my staid self sometimes lacks, while staying true to my artistic, physics-toy-making style. Such as it is.

THE HOSE is the result.

You are the hose. Hold the mouse to send out water streaming, sending you flying and hopefully dousing the flames.

Err, I mean...

THE BUILDING IS ON FIRE! HOLY CRAP YOU BETTER PUT IT OUT!!! GAH WHAT KIND OF GOOD HOSE ARE YOU IF YOU CANT PUT PUT A FIRE!!!!!! AAAAAH WHATS GOING ON YOURE FLYING ALL OVER THE BOARD LOOK OUT!!!! LOOK OUT! PUT OUT THE FIRE AS FAST AS YOU CAN GO GO GO GO GO GO!!!!

I love how difficult it is

I love how difficult it is to control the hose. Makes the game quite enjoyable.

It's really hard to distinguish the hitboxes on the flames, and they seem really tiny too... I feel like I have to spray in circles in order to hit the flames. Once they're small enough it's easier to target them. Do they originate from the top-left corner or something?

aw, crap, you're right! I

aw, crap, you're right!
I meant the triangles to be "centered" on the "hit box" (which is actually a generous-ish circle) but in fact they're off to the side. Good eyes!

But I think the hose came out well, it had the semi controlled feel and general look I was aiming for.
