FireBoy and WaterGirl: The Forest Temple
How well do your hands work together? In FireBoy and WaterGirl: The Forest Temple, you're either your own best friend or worst enemy as you simultaneously control two characters throughout fast-paced levels of puzzle-y, platform-y goodness.Read More

Wow, some of these green gems are hard to get... @_@ Not frustratingly so, though! Just "if I could do this just a bit more perfect I'd get it in the time limit" hard, which I don't mind at all :D I like how everything's possible to do with one person once you get the hang of controlling them both at the same time
Not a big fan of the sound effects ripped from OoT, though.
I admit. I'm pretty good at hand-eye coordination. But not that good! lol
This game makes my brain hurt.
What I wonder is ... why water girl and fire boy don't die when they run into each other. :P
I'm an intermediate-level piano player and pretty good at typing, so the separation of both hands works fairly well. But boy, that is quite a notch more difficult than it looks!
Practicing controls individually could help, especially in combination with a good night's sleep (which links your hands to the correct character).
After all, very nice concept, smoothly implemented. Like it - apart from the "makes my brain hurt" fact.
Hmmm, anti-climatic ending. Not even a "congratulations!" It just took me back to the map of gems/levels. I guess they want me to keep playing until I get an A on every level?
Nah, there isn't an ending even with all of the A ranks... :P
How can you restart a level when you made a mistake. There seems to be no restart or even a menu button.
To get the restart option click the round green pause button at the bottom of the screen.
Sorry about my previous comment. You can press p to pause. I had sworn I tried all the buttons, but somehow I had missed p. In the end I had to go below to the INSTRUCTIONS. yuck. but nvm.
Came back to the game and it hadn't saved the levels I'd done, so I'm back to the beginning... aaaaaaaa!!!
This is actually in general a really good game; my main problem is that you (or at least I) stick to the floor; when walking on the floor I just judder forwards sometimes. Not all the time. It happens in certain games; I think it's something to do with a slightly rubbish version of flash and collision detection.
I can't figure out how to play a level--it lights up with my mouse on it but nothing happens when I click!
Very neat. The mixture is nice, with some little bits of lateral thinking fun.
The odd "timing" puzzles were annoying, but I was prepared to live with them because the style was so neat.
I wish someone would do a video walkthrough.
Needs a save feature. :/
I've just been playing this and took a break to post some thoughts but have just had and 'eeek!'moment having read the 'no save function'.
Thankfully they've either implemented it over night or I'm just lucky as opening it back up again my progress is still there.
Anyway, I'm finding this a rather joyous game!
Character designs and artowrk are, at the worst, really quite good. Game play is actually really fun despite my initial 'oh we've been here a bit before', especially when my co-ordination hit the zone. I can't comment on Bundt's comment about the sound being a bit of a rip-off but I thought the sfx were good too (having an orchestration of 'yelps' when both are jumping at the same time on different levels of the screen was quite satisfying.
Saying all of this I'm about 2/3rds of the way through so things might change.
Well done for a good game Oslo!
It's a pretty good game, but I have to give it a sound beating for the unfortunate trifecta of removing the right click menu for quality control, including no in game quality control, and having issues with lag because... Well, because it's visually complex. Nice try at a game, but don't punish me because my computer isn't incredible.
Got green diamonds for all but three of the levels. This game is oddly addictive. Wish there was more.
My only nitpick is that you never know how long you have to finish a level perfectly.
I just don't get it: do developers realize that no mute button and no save button equate having an unpolished piece of junk that needs to have 2 incredibly easy features? Other than that, the levels I did beat were fun, however I won't be finishing anytime soon, or ever for that matter. Awful
This game is extremely unfair to anyone with an azerty-keyboard.
If someone could make a spoiler in video form it would be perfect!
i wish i could pass the level with th 2 blocs and then you use fireboy to get passed the water pond thingy and you have to go back through the water pond after pushing the lever my bro' wont listen to me he plays as fireboy and he says "sissy i cant do htis so let me play mario games!" we have three more levels!!!!! :) i stink at that game!
I wish water girl and fire boy generally started on opposite side than where they usually start, as she is generally on the right above his controls, and he is generally on the left above hers.
What I love about this game so far (and I`ve only played a few levels) is the keyboard controls. I`ve gotten used to these `co-op` type games requiring you to press a certain button to switch between characters. I love how this made it so that you can move them with separate hands, instead!
My bf and I boggle at the notion that this could be intended to be a single-player game. We played it co-op, and just now finished acing every level. It was a fun experience. We struggled with some levels, but when we finished the game and went back to the handful that we'd gotten "B"s on, those previously-frustrating levels were easy to coordinate, if not quite so easy to time some of those tricky jumps.
But hey, we got infinite lives, lots of time, and it's funny seeing those little critters go up in steam when one of us misses a jump, or walks straight in. It was a fun exercise in teamwork, and I really think that we came away from it better off than we were when we started.
Wow! This game is soooooooo hard! I can't even get past the 5th level!
If anyone knows how please tell me.
I'm getting very frustrated trying to get past some levels!
Please Help ME!
Anyway. Its a great game especially with hand eye coordination. But I wish someone would make a video walkthrough or something to help if you get really stuck on a level.
But it's still a Great game!
Someone should make Fire boy and Water girl 2.
(a lot harder) he he!
I don't actually think its very possible to make a harder game than this! I am completely stuck.
But still there should be another level.
I'm stuck on the first level with the elevator wood thingy. Any help?
i cant even get past the first level (i know its sad :[) but at the part when you push the lever, and you gotta get both of those characters up there, how do you do that!?
How do you go through the door in the first level? It has the "boy" sign and I walk them up to it, but they won't got through? Any help?
My cousin introduced me to this game. He played Fireboy and I played Watergirl. I love it so much I even pretend to be Watergirl sometimes. I play it by myself now, moving them individually but at the same time if possible. I love how on level 2 you can pass without moving the second wood thing!
I used to be able to play this game, but now I can't and I can't figure out how to get it to work. At the level menu, the level glows when I roll the mouse it, but nothing happens when I click it. Any suggestions?
Well, the temple idea was a bit ripped. The whole mirrors idea was ripped, the crates was ripped.
I suppose you have to accept the ripped sounds, and, it's not as if some weren't good.
