Short, but fun, Fox Flares is an amusing little platformer with an interesting mechanic. Trying to avoid being on fire while also having to use that fire to progress created a good challenge that could easily become a longer game. While the bouncy tiles felt a bit unwieldy most of the time, I still had fun figuring out how to get through the different rooms. Plus, foxes are cool.Good job on this, dev.
You are a fox that is spontaneously combusting. Try to find some water to alleviate the pains of this life. A platformer with some timing elements.
Go into the water pit to put out your fire. The timer will stop as well.

First of all, let me congratulate you on the 32nd place in the Ludum Dare 40 - it's well deserved! Your cute puzzle platformer game made me smile, thinking and wondering, which is admirable. Some of the passages were pretty challenging, but I never had the feeling that something would be unsolvable; there was always some hope that the poor fox won't need to explode. And the ending sequence is sooo sweet! <3 Thanks for this experience! That's why I wrote an article about your game as well as created a little playthrough video of it. :) Looking forward to your next games!
Checkpoint 6 is too difficult!! Dx
The game is fun and cute nonetheless. :3
Not sure why I only just played this - suchhh a nice combination of mechanics with the grass and the platforms
Very clever approach to the theme, however the I'd the controls to be tighter.
jajaja me encanta este juego :D
