Hello everyone. I’m really happy to be back on PlayStation.Blog to tell you that Laughing Jackal’s firefighting action Roguelike, Flame Over, is finally making the jump to PS4 and will be available on Tuesday next week. Yay!
So, for those who haven’t tried, or don’t remember the PS Vita version, Flame Over is a top-down shoot ’em up firefighting game featuring 16 randomly generated levels, four environments, stacks of secrets, and a ton of replayability.
Unlike other shoot ’em ups, you’ll be using hoses, extinguishers, and waterbombs (plus a ton of power-ups you’ll grab along the way) as you struggle to take down the toughest fires ever seen in a video game. And believe me when I say these fires. Are. Tough.
As a game inspired by the roguelikes of old, as well as more modern interpretations like Spelunky, Flame Over is a brutally difficult game, but one in which you’ll learn as you go, getting a little further each time and inspiring you over and over again to try one last time (Honest!) to make it the whole way through, rescuing all the people and cats trapped within and maybe even speed-running your way to the top of the Leaderboards!
As you’d expect, the PS4 version of Flame Over boasts a ton of improvements over the PS Vita original, including:
- Amazing graphicalness: you’ll be blown away by the amount of detail in our 3D environments, which really get to shine on the big screen, plus we’ve thrown in lots of sexy touches like bloom, real time shadows, and all that jazz. The game also loads near-instantly and is full 1080p 60fps.
- Interactive tutorial: we’ve made a training-friendly tutorial where you can play through two levels of the game fully powered up, getting to test out lots of the game’s extra equipment and power-ups in a slightly less dangerous environment. This is firefighting, however, so you’ll still need to be on your toes if you don’t want to fry!
- Even more extra stuffs: the PS4 version of Flame Over features additional rooms, secrets and mechanics to make it the ultimate version of the game.
For those of you who are up for a challenge and a lot of laughs (And tears!) along the way, be sure to check out Flame Over next Tuesday. Look forward to seeing you on the Leaderboards!
You can find out lots more about Flame Over by visiting the official website, and can come and check out the Laughing Jackal website, Twitter, and Facebook pages to keep up to date on the game.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you heading into the fire next week!
