Let’s face it! Gaming is one of the top sports in the world today. It used to be reserved for nerds in the basement of their parent’s homes but today, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who has not played a game before, whether on their phone, tablet, or PC. The trend is continuing and the title wave of gaming is only getting bigger and as of 2018, esports is among the most viewed sports on television today.
I have been gaming for years now and have a true appreciation of the gaming community and those who partake in gaming. I was browsing a forum and found a post about a game called Fireboy and Watergirl and decided to give it a try, and to my surprise, the game was pretty legit and provided me with pretty good entertainment for such a simple and straightforward game.
Fireboy and Watergirl is a series of games about the two main characters. The games are minigames where the couple is looking for a way out of different locations and they have to steer free from pitfalls and use their intellect to outsmart opponents to get through the levels. The characters have the unique powers that they can use to assist them through the area. The boy can easily move through the lava in the stage and the girl can move easily through the water. The premise of how the game works is pretty straightforward. There are some placed where neither can pass and with this, the strategy and decisions need to be made in order to pass the level.
With each level comes new challenges and ways for the two to lose so you must be careful in making sure that you are always paying attention to the new levels and try and apply the knowledge that you have from the older levels to help you move through the levels. The characters are very interesting and one of the greatest things about the game is your complete and total control of both characters at the same time.
The game is now at its fifth installment as we travel through with our brother and sister pair as they move to avoid tragedy and make it through the many levels. In the first series, the two characters are introduced and it is your objective to get to each ultimate prize and gain championship status. In the second series, the pair are trapped in a light castle and they have to find a way out using their skills and abilities. In the third game they are caught in an ice castle, and as things get heavier and heavier, the pair has to fight to make things work to get out. In the fourth series, the two go through several locations and in the last series, the pair are trapped in a forest castle.
This is a great series of games that everyone should try once.
