About Fireboy and Watergirl game

Fireboy and Watergirl is a 2D platformer you can play to test the teamwork skills of yourself and of your friends too. The unblocked version makes it possible to have fun anywhere at any time.

2 friends, 3 Obstacles, 4 Different Worlds

Fireboy and Watergirl is a simple game with bright and colorful graphics. As the title suggests, you play with two different characters. Depending on which character you choose, Fireboy must avoid the blue ponds, whilst Firegirl must stay away from red ponds, whilst the green ones will kill any of you.

Fireboy and WatergirlIn previous versions, you only had one area. But on this new version, you have a 4 different worlds (Forest Temple, Light Temple, Ice Temple, and Crystal Temple), each with its own mechanics and physics.

For example on Ice World, Fire boy moves faster on snow whilst Watergirl moves slower on the snowy bits.

To make things more interesting you also have to collect gems. If you play with Waterboy, you need to collect red gems – Watergirl can only touch the blue ones. One player uses the AWSD to move and jump, the other uses the arrow keys.

Basically, not so basic

Although the mechanics and design are simple, there are few games that take things so far. I usually lose interest pretty fast with this type of games, but Fireboy and Watergirl reminded me to never judge a game too quick.

Fireboy and Watergirl can also be played alone but there is nothing more fun than sharing the victory with your friend or… losing together. You are constantly required to take care of oneself but to also help one another to open the path ahead.

Strategy and planning

Every stage is different and presents new challenges that make every successful jump you make satisfying. Or… every missed jump annoying and frustrating. You need to time your jump on moving floors, push switches to move forward or move heavy rocks to balance and lift up your teammate. Sometimes, you need to take care of each other in real time and think in advance about the physics and mechanics of the surroundings.

Each world has its own, physics, objects, surroundings and strategies. So if you manage to go through all the 30+ stages of one world, you can try out the remaining ones. And if you manage to go through all of them, you can try again, but now try collecting all gems. But don’t forget to stay friends along the way! Don’t get angry at each other if anyone misses a jump and you need to restart the whole stage.

So don’t let yourself down – as many do – by the appearances of this simple but fulfilling online co-op game. As you move forward you face more increasingly fun and satisfying challenges that will test the gaming and teamwork abilities of both yourself and of your friends too. You can play it many hours through all different worlds and levels by trying to collect all the gems in the shortest time.
