Description of the game
Fireboy And Watergirl is a fairly simple platforming game designed around two characters. They are based on the opposite classical elements of fire and water. They can get through the pits of their element but are killed by pits of the other. The two have obstacles that require them to work together to get past. The two characters are controlled by different buttons on the keyboard making it possible to play with one or two players. With one player, you are controlling both characters making it more of a challenge.
Description of the characters.
The two characters of this game Fireboy and Watergirl are from the classical elements of fire and water. Because they are considered opposite elements they will both die in a pit of the other’s element. While the game gives no clue of their relationship if any, the game requires them to work together to reach the end of each level. Fireboy looks like a fire amber and Watergirl looks like a water drop. These characters need to be together for the game to work.
Playing the game
One of the challenges of this game in the online version is that you are using two different controls for each character. In the cell phone app, you need to switch between the characters with the same set of controls. In both cases, it is a challenge to get used to the controls, once you do it is a fun little game. In the game, you work from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen past pits of both elements, and a green goo that kills them both. Using the controls, you can jump over the pits and by working the character together, you can get them through the level.
