A unique WATER shooting game with 25 addicting and challenging levels! Save the barrio from the blazing inferno!

Fire water from your hose to extinguish the fires in each level. You have limited water so be sure to aim carefully.

To my fellow pinoys please spread the game on facebook by pressing the facebook button just above this author comment section. Thanks!

I'm a "Pinoy"/from the Philippines. Let's stop being racist and/or nationalist. Review the game based on what the hell it is, not on who the creators are or who the people who support it are. I mean literally, Newgrounds asks you this - "Remember, you're submitting a REVIEW for this CONTENT. This isn't a place for you to make smug jokes, post stupid nonsense, or act like a total jerk."

Story: Many games have a story, whether the game is based and heavily relies on the story or the story is never really expanded into as it's just there to be there (get what I'm saying?), or there is none. The story here is that we're a firefighter putting out house fires that were caused by an erupting volcano with our trusty fire hose that has a certain amount of water that will run out. The story doesn't do anything else. To me, it just seems the author made up the story on the spot. I mean... a volcano? Really? Couldn't they have added a bit more creativity to this? I don't know what exactly could have been added, but is seems a bit bland to me. At least it was planned out.

Gameplay: The concept of using water ("tubig" in Tagalog for those who want to learn the language and to prove that I am either a "Pinoy" as I say I am or a master of Google, your choice) to achieve the goal (in this case put out the fire) is actually a bit good for a puzzle type of game such as this. It just got so boring, so fast. I got to level 6 and stopped because I'd figured by at that point, each level would just be a clone of the level before it, sure maybe with another twist. But... that twist would probably be expected and/or overused. Games are meant to entertainment for people. This just felt tedious.

Art: It looked like they used flash to make this and it sorta looked like (as an example) the game "Angry Birds." Not bad, but it didn't stand out either. Nothing to really say on this.

Music/Sound: I think I only hear one mindless tune over and over again. Remember I'v only played 6 levels of this game. And even then for the sort amount of time that I've spent on the game, that tune is just... ugh. Catchy at first but... juts turns into mindless background shit. And that water sound... gets a bit annoying.

Again, I've only played the game up to level 6 so this review may be a bit biased towards the fact that I gave up so early on it. But there's also the fact that I gave up because it was so bad. The only attractive part of the game was the art. And art IS supposed to be attractive. In all, I give this game one and a half stars.

This is my review and therefore my opinion and mines alone. Have a great day and thank you for taking the time and consideration into reading this.

You got the art and music, but the concept and physics is just messed? What does it even take to put out the fire? A continuous stream for a certain amount of time, or enough "blobs" hitting it? Anyways, I say the physics are WAY off because it doesn't even act like water, they're like perfect, solid circles and hit each other in the same stream, creating an inconsistent flow and I rarely get a straight line. The fires also take a ridiculous long time to take out. The puzzles take no thinking what-so-ever, but I can't complete them because it's just so glitchy.

I don't mean to be rude, but this game is bad. The mechanics are simply terrible. Why would you make a firefighting game where the fire is only put out by one drop at a time? on almost every level there was a point where the fire was completely encased in water but did not get put out. That is terrible mechanics right there. And not to mention the fact that the water can bump into itself when bouncing off the wall, completely throwing off the trajectory of the rest of the stream, wasting water. Lastly, I redid the second level like six times and it wouldn't change my score to three stars. This game needs a lot of work and I am very disappointed in everyone that gave this game a good score simply because it takes place in the Philippines.
