Jones on Fire 

 

Thanks to Joindots I now know about Jones on Fire. I did a little research after playing Jones on Fire on the Wii U. This downloadable video game is also on Steam, iOS, and Android. I thought as much as I played Jones on Fire. Why? Because we complete missions, purchase upgrades, and play the levels again. One item of note, Jones on Fire is selling for $5.99 on the Wii U, and it is selling for $2.99 on the other systems.

Players are given three lives in Jones on Fire. This is a level based runner. So think of an endless runner except the level ends. After that upgrades can be purchased, and/or the player goes on to the next level. If you lose all three of your lives then you can spend your GK resources to get a continuation. Or you can just start over from level one. I liked starting over since I kept all of my upgrades and money. Please note there are also K resources.

The goal in Jones on Fire is to collect as many kitties as you can. They are floating around waiting to be saved. If you bump into something like a burning log, fire, or some other obstacle then a wall of fire appears behind you. The goal then is to outrun it, and make it back to the building without making any more mistakes. The regular kitties give the K resources, and the golden kitties give the GK.

The graphics in Jones on Fire are blocky. Your character can trip and be swallowed by a red wall. The red wall reminds me of lava. I believe it is supposed to be a wall of fire. Which is definitely something we want to avoid. The music is nice in Jones on Fire. I am not big on the jumping special effects sound personally. There are variations in the different levels in Jones on Fire.

I had fun playing Jones on Fire on the Wii U. This is one of those generally mindless games. Except when it comes to missions. I had to trip on so many logs, and run away from the fire wall so many times. That changed how I played Jones on Fire. I had to adapt my game play to those aspects of this video game. Jones on Fire can be addicting at times. Especially after making one mistake too many.
