Fire & Ice
Description official 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.

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.
In 1995, the DOS version of the game was re-released as shareware by StreetWise Interactive. The shareware version was freely available and contained the first world. The remaining four worlds were only available in the registered version. This re-released version also added a menu with options (previously only available in-game via the F1 hotkey in the original Graftgold/Renegade release): user-definable keys and a jukebox for listening to the in-game music, just to name a few. The ability to load/save game progress and an in-game manual were also added. The actual game remained unchanged, however.
