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.
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
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.
28/8/14 OMG ANDROID VERSION ! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34944147/Android.apk
Ported in literally 5 minutes, need to rotate your phone and there's no offset calibration yet, but here it is if you can't wait!
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!
