Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX coming to consoles 22nd June

Roguelike rescue platformer Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue is coming to PlayStation, Xbox and Switch at the end of the month. Indie specialists Thunderful are publishing.

Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX, to use its full title, is an updated version of last year’s PC only original, reworked following player feedback. The PC version will be updated to the DX version on the same day – 22nd June.

A rebalanced difficulty curve, a streamlined upgrade tree, improved level design, and clearer exits are promised as part of the overhaul. Screenshots also showcase enhanced visuals.

You play as a young fire rescue officer armed with a hose and an axe, with the former doubling as a jetpack. Each stage grants three minutes to tackle a blaze and save the day, with extra time added from extinguishing fiery foes. Back at HQ, items can be upgraded.

There’s a story present to tie everything together, too – who’s starting these fires, exactly?

“The original release of Firegirl on PC gave us invaluable feedback on how we could improve the experience significantly ahead of a console release,” said Julien Ribassin, founder of developer Dejima.

“With the completely reworked and rebalanced version of the game that is Firegirl: Hack ‘n Splash Rescue DX, we’ve kept everything that was great about the original version and reworked the wrinkles to provide a definitive version of the game,” they continued.
