FireStones Editor's Review

Fire stones is a freeware puzzle game in which you must match three of the same coloured block in a row to destroy them, and although this may start to sound like bejeweled, the game actually takes a lot from tetris, as your blocks will fall from the sky, and you must rotate and place them in the correct positions to try and line up three blocks of the same colour in a row, to try and destroy rows of the blocks, with a slightly altered tetris level format, to make a pretty interesting hybrid.

The gameplay of fire stones is, as previously mentioned pretty interesting. You start with a stage which, based on the difficulty already has a variety of mis matched coloured squares, and you are given a variety of shapes which consist of different coloured squares, and try and line up three blocks in a row (in the same direction) of the same colour. This will destroy the blocks, similar to how they disappear in tetris after making a line of them.

The controls of the game are fairly simple, and instead of utilising the mouse to control the blocks as would be expected, the game takes after the controls for console and early pc versions of tetris, by using the arrow keys exclusively to control the blocks, with left and right arrow keys moving blocks to the left and right, up to rotate the blocks to try and make it more conveniently placed, and down to force the blocks to go all the way down to the bottom of the stage, very similarly to tetris.

The unique concept of fire stones gives the game an interesting level of difficulty, as the game is essentially a harder version of tetris, an already incredibly hard game. While it may seem easier than tetris at first, as in tetris you must line up an entire row of blocks, whereas in fire stones you destroy just three blocks at a time. The down side to this is, for every three blocks destroyed you will place many more, requiring a lot of combos to make an effective strategy, because of the otherwise useless blocks potentially cluttering up the stage.

Overall fire stones is a very fun arcade puzzler game which takes a fair amount from tetris, but adds so much in the way of the graphics (which are great and unique) gameplay, level systems, and so much more to be a completely unique game in its own right. The puzzle element to the game is very strong, as is the arcade portion to make an incredibly strong arcade puzzler, so if you are looking for a puzzle game with an array of arcade elements, this game is definitely worth a download for you.
