"I want to bring this rhythm goodness around on my Android in exchange for a measly dollar!"

NOTE: This game uses Unity. If the controls are unresponsive and only the mouse and Shift key works (though you can just play the game with the mouse), try right-clicking and selecting Fullscreen, and it should work.

MEDALS: are not working just yet. Don't erase your progress and once we've fixed it you'll get them the moment you start the game!

A Dance of Fire and Ice is a game about hitting the breakbeat.

It was one of over a thousand games (and the only rhythm game) made for the Ludum Dare game jam, in which a full game had to be created from scratch in 48 hours. The theme we had to follow was 'Connected Worlds'.

As it was only made in 48 hours, there isn't a whole lot of content. But if you like the game so far and want to see more updates, rating it on the sidebar will help so I know whether it's worth pursuing! If you'd rather I forget about this and finish Rhythm Doctor then you can blam it :P



27/10/14 Been a while, but: new calibration mini-game! Also, the offset drift on higher speeds has been fixed, and audio system is on the whole more precise. And not forgetting we now have MEDALS, thanks to an amazing API developed by NG user Coolboyman!

1/10/14 World 3 added! It sure is a bit of a step up. Other fixes: - Continue Game feature - percentage display when failing a level - icons for special tiles.

Thanks again for all the feedback! This is the first time I'm doing this but.. if you've enjoyed any of our rhythm games and would like to support us, you can buy an Android version of this for a dollar on the Play store! It's literally exactly the same as this one, just mobile. My plan for this is to increase the price as more features are added - buy it now and you get all future updates for FREE! (psst, custom levels) No IAPs or ads ever. I hate them as much as you >:( Enjoy the new levels! :)

18/9/14 World 2 added! It's so Rihanna. Thank you so much for the reviews, I want to respond to every single one saying thanks but it's a struggle between annoying everybody and conveying my thanks, so I am doing it here!

31/8/14 You can no longer win by clicking like a total jerk, in the words of that last review.

27/8/14 Added tutorial levels due to popular request.


WARNING: This is a hard rhythm game, just like my other game Rhythm Doctor. Not in the sense of silly note spamming - for the most part all you have to do is keep a consistent beat - but this is a good test of whether you would be a good drummer. Keeping a beat is not very easy, and then weird breakbeats are added on top of that, so don't worry if you find it difficult!

Use whichever key you see fit - and use the left and right arrow keys adjust the offset.

I've tested the latencies on Mac and PC and adjusted them for each platform, but there is a chance your computer will have a different latency setting as well. Use the training area to check the latency!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

One of the best games I have ever played on newgrounds. It has been updated since I last played and the addition of worlds makes the game much better. The off-beat world is by far my favourite and I was smiling the whole time I was playing through 2-X. The title of 3-5 made me laugh and I'm feeling the burn on 3-X. I just have to get the timing right on the last few snakes. I love how this game plays, the music is amazing and whenever I fail I feel like it's my fault and not the game's thanks to the fluid controls (much like Super Meat Boy.) Overall, great game. Can't wait to see what's next and I'm definitley buying it on Android!

Wow... Best game of the whole century. Just... Wow. Great music. Smooth graphics, Smooth programming, Smooth EVERYTHING, great way to practice rhythm games, great way to make it hard, and finally... clever techniques in moving, not just moving straight, but also, down, up, down left, down right, down up, just wow. Amazing game. 5/5.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I can't help but come back to this game every few days. It's so endlessly addicting.

My only word of advice is that you maintain saves between updates. I'm tired of redoing them every time you release a new version. (not that it isn't fun).

And I didn't realize you're the same guy who made Rhythm Doctor. I'm definitely adding you as a favorite now.
