Cracking Good Particle Physics Brawler FireWhip Hits Android
Do you remember all those pixelated fireworks simulators you could watch in Windows Media Player? Well someone had the crazy but awesome idea to turn that frenetic array of particles into an addicting new arcade style fighter called FireWhip, and it’s hitting the Google Play Store tonight at the crack of midnight. That certain someone who probably stared at the aforementioned visualizers for a bit too long when coming up with this intriguing concept happens to be indie developer Dan FitzGerald who you may know from the hit snowplow sim Dawn Of The Plow, and he’s bringing that same polished pedigree over to FireWhip’s simple but intensely satisfying hybrid combat. In this physics heavy beat em up players take control of a fiery whip at the center of the screen that they must rotate at high speeds and slash at a wide variety of spookily retro advancing enemies that each sport their own unique abilities. With its clever approach to gameplay and cacophony of chaotic visuals FireWhip is looking every bit as special as its predecessor.
