Review of 'FireTrap'

Rating:2 User: YOR

This is an arcade game that I have never ever played. The idea is pretty original but the gameplay is all over the place. You have to climb a building to rescue women and dogs as well as avoiding falling objects and fire, but so much happens at once it’s hard to keep track of what you’re supposed to be doing and where are you supposed to go. You have to reach the top of the building within the time limit to complete the level, which given the gameplay here is as confusing as it is that will require a lot of work and patience. The graphics aren’t great as well and it’s hard to see things fall on you as a result of that. I can’t work out for sure whether it’s a crap arcade game, a crap conversion, or a little bit of both, nevertheless I found FireTrap to be a largely underwhelming experience and one I will actually never experience again.
