TrickyFirebug 2The Podge's cute, cuddly, and ever-infernoey insect is back to set the world on fire yet again in Firebug 2, a puzzle platformer. As before, Firebug wants nothing more than to bounce about levels and add to his collection of yummy jelly beans. Sadly, his incendiary nature means that all the wooden platforms he touches will catch on fire and quickly disintegrate. This can be quite a problem considering the icy ocean lurking beneath. Of course, there are other creatures, switches, and actuators that will help (or hinder) you in your quest, but they seem pretty darn flammable too. You'll have to think quick and tread lightly if you hope to blaze a trail through all 33 levels.

Firebug 2 takes all the best aspects of its predecessor and builds on them. Though, like the first, speed is a larger element than in most puzzle platformers, here there is a greater emphasis on timing and careful fire placement. Firebug 2 isn't afraid to let you lose a level a few times, so you may discover its tricks. The first time you hit a switch, and realize it closed a door you really wanted to keep open, will have you cursing The Podge for his equal brilliance and apparent sadism. Some other refinements, like a more fluid double-jump and the larger number of hats and sprite skins just waiting to be unlocked, only add to the belief that this may be the definitive firebug experience. Whether already a fan or new to the series, Firebug 2 is a great way to burn through a coffee break.

Sluggish controls are very frustrating.

There are games where it works, because of the pace of what is happening but this is not one of them. It is a shame firebug needs more omph in his movement.

Don't like that there are occasions to use the mouse, but the cursor doesn't show up. Not sure if it's my comp (Win XP running FF 12), but it took me forever and a day to get the small ad at the bottom left gone. Grrr.
