Description

Epic Fire Truck II is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Epic Fire Truck. (https://gm48.net/g/1415)

Play as a firefighter in a horribly maintained city, where buildings catch fire left and right. Drive around the city and search for fires, then take them out with your powerful fire hose. Oh, and make sure to save any cats you come across!

Controls:

  • Arrow Keys or WASD to move
  • Space or Z to boost / fight fires
  • Shift or X to jump
  • Press any button when the two circles meet to save the cat
  • Press the displayed arrow key quickly to fight fires. (Unfortunately, WASD doesn't work for fighting fires)

    Funny story, nice game. I included it in my GM48: Collect! compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/AJIXJbuzz8E

    It's not the sequel we need, but the sequel we deserve. What a great entry man, two minor things I didn't like: the unexpected cat catching mini-game cause I didn't know what to do the first time, and the fact you could get lost if you boosted far away from everything. Literally everything else was spectacular!

    Lovely game. Collecting the cats and the seeing them was really a rewarding feeling. Only missed a happy cat ending or something. Still great action, good looking and multiple fun elements.

    After seeing the gif of the game, I realised you can also jump, didn't use it. No wonder it was difficult getting places. XD

      Thanks for leaving feedback! You're right, we should have put the cats on the end screen. Oh well...

    This still is silly, and I still like it.

    I'm a sucker for sprite stacking and camera effects. The turning can be a bit jarring though. Saving cats was hard for me but hard != bad :)

      Thanks for playing! I'm glad you liked the sprite stacking - it took me a long time to get it right :D

    Love the dancing cats, love the premise that you're more interested in saving the cats than putting out the fires, and I think this is the only game in the jam that utilizes sprite stacking, which is unique. There must be a bunch of arsonists in this town because the buildings go up in flames so quickly!

    My only problem with the game is similar to everyone else's, there's some issues with the controls, like how WASD can be used to move but can't be used to put out fires.

      Thanks for playing! I think there might have been another sprite stacked game but I can't remember what it was...

    Love the art style and music! However, I could not even save a single cat. "Press any key" didn't seem to do anything.

      You need to press the button when the two circles meet. Sorry that it wasn't clear enough :(

    I think there might be a bug with the cat-saving bit - the screen with the cat falling would come up and it would say press any key and I press all the keys, like rake my fingers across the keyboard frantically, pressing all the any keys and still the cat perishes :'(

    Basically I just show up in a hurry to watch a cat leap off a tall building to its demise if this was your intention then I give your game zero stars - if it wasn't - I give it many stars

      You have to time the button press when the large circle is inside the smaller circle. Sorry that it wasn't clear :(

    Cool graphics. Neat gameplay. Camera movement is a bit aprupt and quick fast. Impressive entry for a jam game. Loved the cats :D

  • Paulo Brunassi

    Hey, those cats are hard to save! I loved the art style and music, I think the only downside is that the camera rotation could be smoothered. Anyway, great job!

      I agree that the camera could have been better. Thanks for leaving feedback!

    This was awesome! I really dig the 3D effect. I always liked these sorta pixelated 3D worlds. Cruising around from fire to fire was fun, and after a while I really got a hang of boosting the truck to highspeed. My only real complaint is that there is no real fail-state (or is there?), like houses/the city burning down if you're not fast enough. Other than that, great game!

      The houses actually can burn down, but you should have enough time to save them unless you bump into a lot of things or can't find the fires fast enough.

  • Tydecon Games

    This game is insane! I really like the 3D effects and the cute style of it all. The only issues I have is I'd have liked to have seen a menu screen and maybe a little more instruction - plus a little invisible wall to stop me wondering in to the abyss! But that's all things that can be fixed in time, in the meantime, this is really well programmed, nice job! :)

      Thanks for playing! Those are definitely good suggestions, I was thinking about putting a wall of trees around the city at one point but never ended up doing it ahaha

  • JacksmackDave

    The truck is very hard to control at these speeds, and I got stuck and bumped into a lot of stuff using a keyboard for controls.

    I like the look of the stacked sprites. but I think they might need a bit slower pace to be utilized well.

      Thanks for the review! The truck is supposed to be a bit hard to control so you have to steer carefully and jump over things, so I can understand why it would be annoying.

Post-mortem

Next time I'll make sure the controls work.
