Gameplay of Fireboy and Watergirl 5
Fireboy and Watergirl 5: Elements relies on co-operative gameplay. That means it’s much better to play it along with a friend! Instead of playing against each other, you work together to solve puzzles and move on through the level. The controls are set up so you can both play comfortably on the same device. If you want to play solo, you can still play by controlling both characters at the same time.
In Fireboy and Watergirl 5 each area contains different elemental challenges for you to overcome. The forest temple is the first region. Here you must use both characters to collect the colored diamonds and get to the end doors. Each area has a different style. The light temple, for example, has beautiful colored lights.
In this fifth installment of Fireboy and Watergirl, there’s a great variety of new temples that merge many elements from the previous game. Some exciting new temples with brand new puzzles include all-fire and all-water temples, which leaves one of you to take the lead on solving the temple. Themed on the elements as the title suggests, there’s a superb variety of puzzles to keep you engaged.
