It's 2am, gran is in the kitchen making her famous cottage pie...it's a disaster waiting to happen! Your house catches fire and it's down to you to save the family. Using a variety of items (and a bit of quick thinking) you need to get all your family in to the safe room before its too late. You have a maximum of 3 minutes, and every second really counts!

Some of you retro gamers may recognise the Sinclair Spectrum style of this game. We added a bit of classic 1980's computer game sparkle for added effect. Dig those loading screens, marvel in that loading sound, but don't waste too much time on it, remember...grans on fire in the kitchen!

Its the second time this game has appeared on Newgrounds, It was up for a day last year but the men in suits made us pull it. Now they are happy and so are we. Enjoy

1980's style

Great educational game

Seriously, I think your game should become a necessary exam in elementary schools! I didn't know about the towel and the back draft but now you may have saved my life in the future!

The retro style was cool, except the title screen at the beginning because the sound was pretty annoying. I actually played the game a few times just to see "what would happen if I did that instead", I also tried to see different endings (everyone saved and everyone killed except you).

dum

when i opend a windo bam fire went up all and we all dided it stupied


Matmi responds:

Well lolzman, I hope you never get caught in a real fire or you would be dead.

The reason everyone died when you opened a window is because you caused a back draft.

You need to shut all doors and block drafts.

Towelie says 'Don't forget to bring a towel' preferably wet!

Giving us a zero because you can't play the game is a little harsh.
