A Dance of Fire and Ice is a one-button rhythm game where you control a pair of spheres. You press a button to the beat of the music to progress through the mazes. Each press pivots the direction of motion of the paired spheres to make turns and cross gaps. It's an unusual game that combines simple controls with a challenging and music-centric navigation.

Each level and each song has its own rhythm and its own related pattern. It gets difficult, and requires accurate pressing of the single button as well as a good sense of rhythm. The mazes work not only as a challenge to navigate but an indicator of what rhythm is coming in the song. Learning to read this simple landscape is like learning to read music, and enables you to anticipate the upcoming notes and timing.

There are over 10 worlds to explore, each with new shapes and rhythms. What do triangles, octagons or squares sound like? Each world starts with small tutorial stages and ends with a final test. Once you have finished the game there are then Speed Trials to take on for the brave.
