Wildfire Accessibility Report

Wildfire offers 15 accessibility features in the Difficulty, Reading, Controls, Visual and Audio areas to aid enjoyment of the game for different players. This report is created with input from accessibility experts and the player community to help people find games that have the accessibility features they require. Once you have found potential games on the database, there are excellent specialist accessibility sites that offer in-depth reviews to guide your purchasing decisions.

Wildfire is a running, jumping and hiding game where you hide from (and distract) enemies to get through levels and complete missions. You have specific powers to start fires, freeze water, and move earth that offer different ways to solve the puzzle of each area. You then go back to your village to upgrade your character for the next mission.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Adjust difficulty by toggling one-hit-kill, fall damage and ability to revive a co-op partner more easily. There are some letters you find in the game that are longer to read and the game doesn't pause while these are visible. There is an auto-jump mode to make controls easier. How much sound you are making (and how likely you are to be detected) is indicated visually on the screen. Enemies' sense of smell is visually depicted.
