Description

The background story of Fire & Ice is quick to tell: A coyote (you) runs, throwing ice cubes, through various worlds. In the levels you must jump on platforms and kill your enemies. The enemies (for example, birds and penguins) can be shot with your ice cubes; they become frozen, so you smash them. Sometimes they leave part of a key behind after they're destroyed. The complete key, assembled from all the pieces, opens the door to the next world.

In this "jump & run" you can also get some power-ups. You can find some coyote puppies; these puppies follow you, are invulnerable, and also shoot enemies. In higher regions you find some snow-flakes; enough of these and you get a great snowball for freezing more enemies on the screen.

Trivia

DOS version

The PC version contains 16 colours only because it was written using "Realms" shell which had CGA and VGA 16 colour drivers.

Master System version

The Master System version was supposed to be released in Europe in 1994, but the development was aborted. Only later was the game picked up in a somewhat unfinished state for release in Brazil, where the Master System was still a successful console. There was also a Genesis version in development.

Xmas edition

There is a Xmas special edition with winter levels
