Wildfire Swap Review
Posted: 5 weeks ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
You take on the role of a wildland firefighter. Your goal is to create firebreaks between out of control fires and people’s homes by solving tile swapping puzzles. As with wildfires in the real world, you’re at the mercy of the flames. You cannot extinguish them — you must do your best to contain them.
It starts easy but as the 120 hand-crafted levels get harder you have to consider your moves carefully as the fire spreads fast, and an out-of-control fire is unstoppable. In this way you work your way through five worlds.
The simple mechanics develop as you progress and evolve as the landscape and environment changes. Along with the main story, there are side-quests puzzles that take the challenge in new and unexpected directions.
“Our Inspiration for Wildfire Swap,” says the developer, “is a game about exploring the efforts to control those massive fires. It explores how a small spark can quickly turn into a raging inferno and how easily forces of nature can spiral out of our control.”
