Hot Ice Editor's Review

Hot ice is a light hearted freeware puzzle game, in which you pay as an ice cube who has to slip and slide his way across a field which is covered in objects to reach the fire... so he can kill himself. This is a primitive enough concept, with quite an amusing result. The catch to the ice's movement, however is that as he is an ice cube he is very slippery, so can only move in the four cardinal directions (north, east, south, west) and the obstacles are placed in a way to make this difficult.

The gameplay of hot ice is simple enough, the ice cube will spawn in one part of a (grid based) level, and you can only move in four directions to achieve that, and there is a lot of debris and level related objects between you and the end of the level; the fire. One example of this is in a grassy field level, you will have debris such as plants. When the Ice cube comes across a debris, it will stop it in it's path and you will only be able to move the other three directions. This may sound complicated at first, but as you play the game and experience it a few times it will start to come naturally

The difficulty of hot ice is a nice progression, with the early levels starting out nice and easy, just making you move a couple times to experiment with the basic concept, with the next few levels exploring corners (where you can only move in two directions, and some times just the direction you hit the obstruction from) providing a nice way for people to understand these tricky situations before they get into them. The levels also get bigger (and the camera pans out) for the later levels, also, to add more length as well as difficulty.

The graphics of the game are really great, being colourful while also being simple (a great balance when it comes to performance) with some really great sprites for the ice cube, and a nice animation for the ice cube hitting the fire, the games look and feel really match the tone, which is great for a game of this nature. The sounds are a little dull, but there is a nice tune playing in the background (of EVERY level) which is a little fun to listen to, until it bores you in the later stages, anyway.

Overall hot ice is a great arcade and puzzler distraction, to spend some time on, as well as a fun game to try and beat. It's length is around an hour at best, so if you want a quick, light hearted experience, with great controls, tone, visuals and no real over arching objective, then this game will be a great time for you. If you are looking for a slightly more in depth game with a serious tone, perhaps not but otherwise, excellent game, 5/5.
