Critic Reviews for Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue

This means, unfortunately, Firegirl: Hack ’n Splash Rescue is still a work in progress. All of the right elements are here, but they’re not coalescing into what should be the optimal firefighting experience. I truly believe there is a great game buried somewhere within the lines of code that brings it all together. We just got to hold onto hope that Dejima Games will be able to find it.

Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue would have a lot of potential, but at present it has too many problems to be enjoyable.

With more time in development and tweaks here and there to its overall design, Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue DX could really have been something. As things currently stand however, the superb premise, gorgeous visuals and compelling platforming roguelike gameplay all feel stifled under the weight of some really nasty game breaking bugs that make the game almost impossible to play for any decent period of time. A real shame.

Firegirl: Hack 'n Splash Rescue DX is kindling; easily combustible and not much else. A platformer that makes platforming impossible at times. It also wants to borrow from roguelikes and Metroidvanias, but ends up taking all the wrong elements from them. Firegirl feels repetitive well before it should, including a camera that frustrates and leads to cheap deaths. The art of Firegirl is excellent. The 2D-HD made me feel like I was sitting in the living room of my parents house and I was nine years old again. But that's nothing more than smoke and mirrors.

Firegirl is a real good little rogue-lite. If its context and gameplay are rather atypical, its structure is very classic. On the other hand, it's so well done that we don't care and the formula is addictive as much as possible. Plus, with its procedurally generated missions that flare up in minutes, Firegirl is the perfect candidate for intense on-the-go gaming sessions.

The core gameplay is fun, but the constant and unrelenting fists of failure really put a damper on things. Some of the issues I found with Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash could be improved with more polishing. However, others might take a little more work.

The arcade aesthetic, fast-paced platforming action, and gradual drip-feed of unlocks in Firegirl make for an entertaining gameplay loop, especially when considering its subject matter. The game is still rough around the edges and its technical faults can act as annoying setbacks during play, but Firegirl still offers a fresh take on the roguelike genre, with its endless procession of towering infernos putting the skills of even the sharpest platformer fan to the test.

Those seeking a slower-paced action-platformer with a mix of real-time resource management thrown in will adore Firegirl Hack 'n Splash Rescue DX. It's a tough, but fair game and one that feels a lot more fair than the original release thanks to tweaks with the balance and an in-game rewards system. If you're in the mood for a fun, challenging adventure and have an affinity for side-scrolling action, Firegirl Hack 'n Splash Rescue DX is a must-buy.
