A new puzzle game with 2D platforming gameplay has been released on the App Store, and it's called In Case Of Fire. The game will have you grabbing keys and dodging flames through 32 levels (info via Touch Arcade). The gameplay consists of maneuvering through multiple floor levels to reach the exit. There are also sprinklers with water coming out of them that are placed in multiple parts of the levels; they can be used to the player's advantage. In Case of Fire looks very similar to the Exit series by Ubisoft. However, this game is based on controlling one character. "The world is burning! But with wits and quick reflexes you have a chance to escape. Run through traps, obstacles, and mazes. Escape from a world of fire. Your goal is victory, freedom, the open air," according to the In Case of Fire app description. The controls seem very intuitive and there are lots of different things to do. You can run or walk in different directions, for instance. The graphics seem quite simple with an almost stickman quality to the hero you control. However, retro fans may find the visual style right up their alley. Here is a list of additionalf features to expect (from the app description):
In Case of Fire currently costs $.99 on the App Store.
- More levels in future updates!
- Retina Graphics support
- A fun mix of puzzle/arcade action
- Rescue our hero from dangerous situations (if you can)
- Fun for all ages
