Retro Gaming Advent Calendar – 24th December

December 24th. Fire & Ice Christmas Special – Amiga

Today marks out penultimate game. (Yes I know some Advent Calendars end on the 24th, but some end of the 25th as well).

Anyway this being the penultimate game, it is a real Christmas cracker!

Now Fire & Ice is one of the few Amiga platformers that I actually like, so to get a Christmas special version was a real treat. Release in 1992 on an Amiga Power cover disk (Yep another!) , this is a set of specially created Christmas themed levels using the same game engine. The graphics as per usual Graftgold are superb, ton’s of extra detail and flourishes have been added to make it all more festive.

An essential play for any Amiga fan this holiday period.

    This could have been a classic if Andrew had just considered how frustrating the one hit deaths would be. Otherwise it's a beautiful game with lots of neat touches, demonstrating a dedication to attention to detail.

    It would be a perfect candidate for a re-issue on modern platforms.
