Make no bones about it, FireGirl Hack N Splash Rescue is a good-looking game, it uses a strong pixel art system and mixes up the angles that you cannot help but love it. Get to the actual game and meh. You play as a FireGirl and need to rescue people by putting out fires, traversing the land, and smashing down doors. It sounds fun and it should be fun but it really isn’t. The whole game is timed to press home the whole panic and tension of the situation, but what it does just annoy you because the road to clearing a level is never clear, the camera work can go against you, and killing enemies may grant time back but it’s so small you land up spending longer killing them than the time rewards itself. I wanted to like the game but it is just not great, I don’t like how stingy it is with water, the whole game loop, or how it generally plays out. FireGirl is all style and no substance.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
