There are some great ideas in Wildfire, such as the way you can handle the elements to interact with the environment around you, but what we ended up getting instead was a shallow cinematic platformer with some janky controls, repetitive level design, and lots of framerate issues.

Much like its namesake, Wildfire takes a while to kick off, but once the perfect conditions are met, it can be chaos. The unique abilities make for interesting moments, which is needed thanks to the often monotonous stealth systems that plague the game. For those looking for a neat game to play co-op, you’ll find it in Wildfire.

A 2D stealth platformer that lets you glimpse, between some limits and many beautiful ideas, the charm of the indies.

It’s the underlying systems which let everything else down, and which felt incoherent to me. Some games only become fun once you work out what they expect from you, and I spent most of my time with Wildfire wondering if I was playing it wrong. Maybe I was, but if there was a fun way to play it, I never found it.

There's considerable joy to poking at the edges of its ingenious interlocking systems to see what happens.

Thanks to impressive level design, a nice range of cool abilities to try out and a spark of something truly unique (pun semi-intended), Wildfire succeeds at delivering a great stealth experience, even if it can be demanding at times.

Still, the aforementioned optimism saw Sneaky Bastards pushing forward, culminating in a successful <b>Kickstarter</b> campaign, eventually landing a publisher in <b>Humble Games</b> and finally getting Wildfire into the hands of the witchtastic punter.

Wildfire has a huge amount of potential, but it's let down by frustrating trial-and-error gameplay, clunky controls and poor level design.

The new indie game Wildfire is a boon for stealth game fans, and it's packed with smart ideas, interesting spells, and inventive level design.

While the narrative hook left a lot to be desired, the mechanical depth that Wildfire brings is unlike anything I’ve seen in recent memory.
