Fire Fighter is an interesting ASCII-based strategy game which is not nearly as long and drawn-out as most strategy games. An entire game/scenario can last only a minute or two. The idea is to use three different methods (water, fire breaks, and backfires) to control the spread of fires and save homes on a randomly generated map. It's a neat idea and plays well enough but honestly there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of careful strategy required to be successful.
