    Blue Fire is a fantastic mix of 3D platforming, intense combat, and addictive free-form exploration. A somber story perked up by colorful characters makes this an experience you can’t miss.

    Regardless of how tough the platforming can be, I savored every moment in this world. Even after dying dozens of times, I was still motivated to progress to see what new kinds of wonders awaited me if I could just make it to the next platform. The amount of mystery, content, and challenge ROBI Studios packs into a $20 package is quite impressive and left me hungry for more even after the game’s conclusion. Blue Fire emulates the successes of definitive 2D and 3D games and is perfect for anyone with an appetite for a stimulating platformer or action-adventure complete with a gorgeous and enthralling world to explore.

    Accurate, funny and with a classical scent that will remind us of the best 3D platform moments from this early century. Blue Fire is a serious candidate to be one of the best indies of the year.

    This challenging battle platformer feels like a three-dimensional Hollow Knight spiced up with Zelda and Souls. That may sound great, but the lackluster art-design, some frustrating deficits as well as bugs hold Blue Fire back.

    My first impression was great and early on I was sure this pretty action adventure game will score higher. Then the difficulty level rose drastically and allied itself with frustratingly imprecise controls to murder all the fun. [04/2021, p.62]

    Blue Fire is a game that does its best to tie together the best parts of other games, but doesn’t quite make it work. Its platforming is great and offers a great challenge, but combat and level design needs work. What’s there is good, but it could be much better.

    Blue Fire is a game I wanted to like, but couldn't due to its poor focus and loads of ill-considered design issues. Between the balance issues, bugs, and creeping frustrations, there's a lot stacked against the game.

    Excelente plataforma en 3D. Fuertemente inspirado en Zelda, Dark Souls y Hollow knight... el punto débil del juego es no tener personalidadExcelente plataforma en 3D. Fuertemente inspirado en Zelda, Dark Souls y Hollow knight... el punto débil del juego es no tener personalidad propia. El combate no es del todo satisfactorio pero brilla en todo su esplendor en el plataformeo. Expand

    If you ever wanted a 3D-Platformer with Zelda dungeons and combat which implements elements from Hollow Knight, Dark Souls and A Hat in TimeIf you ever wanted a 3D-Platformer with Zelda dungeons and combat which implements elements from Hollow Knight, Dark Souls and A Hat in Time then this game is for you. Enough said.
    This game was clearly made with passion and I can't wait for the next thing from this studio.

    Pros:
    - Great interconnected world and level design
    - Fluid platforming and combat gameplay
    - Always fair (your deaths are always your own fault)
    - Very hard bonus levels... still amazed I got through all of them.
    - Good game length (about 10 hours when completing the story, all sidequests, getting all items and completing the dlc)
    - Multiple difficulty options, which actually change the leveldesign
    - Secret rubber ducks :)

    Cons:
    - This game is very bad to speedrun because of a load of small problems (If ROBI Studios reads this, then PLEASE add an options to skip ALL cutscenes!)
    - Limited replayability (the difficulty options and perma-death mode are nice, but some challenge modes, a cheat menu, boss rush or a new game plus would be greatly appreciated)
    - The bloom and glaring whiteness of the voids can be too much at times. On a bright screen in the dark they hurt your eyes

    It's a 3D platformer, which are notoriously hard to create.
    Just a bad idea done okay'ly.

    The controls are atrocious and the game doesn't do anything to give you any sense of purpose or direction.
    It feels like a college-level
    The controls are atrocious and the game doesn't do anything to give you any sense of purpose or direction.
    It feels like a college-level project in game design that barely got the passing grade.
    There's literally no reason for anyone to play this game ever.
