Hi! This is our humble entry for the seventh Newgrounds Game Jam. We formed a team after the Jam started. In this game, you play as the King of the Fire Kingdom and must resist the Ice invasion.

For more information related to the Game Jam (such as our Core Mechanics Diagram), please click on the Game Jam icon on the menu screen in-game. Enjoy!

Here's another version of the instructions which looks at the game from a different perspecitve if the one in-game was not clear enough.:

The objective of the game is to use fire units to destroy all ice units on the screen. Fire and ice units take turn to move.

Every turn, the unit will grow in strength. The strength is shown by the number on the unit. The increase depends on the material of the square which the unit is on. Fire increases three on wood, two on bricks and one on stone; ice increases three on stone, two on bricks and one on wood.

To move a unit, you need to choose a neighbouring square. To stay, simply click on the current square or the skip button below. If you move to a square with a hostile unit, the one with greater strength will remain on the square. However, its strength will decrease by the strength of the defeated unit. If you move to a square with a friendly unit, the two units will combine to form a unit whose strength is the sum of the two original units.

Controls: Mouse only

PS Our team doesn't have a musician, so AP music was used.

Amusing game

There was a lot of good things to like about your effort here, the main part had to be the concept and design of the whole game, And to be honest with you i thought this was entertaining and fun even exciting, There is good things about this, and in a way it was rather unique. Now heres a game that i was impressed with, the size alone was very impressive, if you can make a fun game with just a small size like that, then you have my vote. ok so this game was kind of like chess, i like it and there was some interest, but got boring after abut maybe because of the turn based style, maybe if you added more to it like some enhancments and some effects, and even some bonus games in there. The power of creativity is in all of us, and you have show-casedyour creativity here in this flash game, you have brought some smiles and joy inckuding lots of fun entertainment to the portal keep it up.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Seemed like an alright game. It is definitely fun, and entertaining but there is obviously room for improvement here and there. So this is where i may suggest some possible polish points and some other areas that can be polished up. Making this more interesting with some mini bonus games and some extra effects and elements to the game to give it more of an entertaining value.

Overall a very good game, my overall favourite from Game Jam 7.

Once you get the hang of it, it can be quite addictive. As mentioned before, the AI tends to make the game difficult via it's often refusal to go on the offensive, which is fine in most levels other than level 30 (the final one). It took me about 2 hours to beat it due to the AI bug.

Some sound effects would have been nice. Once thing worth mentioning, when the players indicate 3xx the "3" is sometimes hard to make out.

I would like to see a sequel to this game.

Thanks for the rating and review! I agree that the AI is a very big problem. There wasn't too much time for a brighter AI and the AI is something on which I'd like to work...

AI seems rather weak, wont attack me or combine its own tiles, but given the time time period I understand the limitations..... it'd just be nice lol im stoned

I had to check out the game since it features my music. I thought it was quiet neat. I love puzzle games and this one isn't bad at all. Perhaps some sound effects would have been nice, but overall the game does what it sets out to do. 4/5 (:


FlyingColours responds:

Thanks for the review! I've never really done sound effects in a game before and I intend to start doing that after I've finished the game I'm working on.
