Fireboy and Watergirl are the protagonists of a wholesome little franchise of platforming puzzle games. In this series two characters are supposed to work together to get through the mazes of various ancient temples built in honor of different elements of nature. There are many obstacles on the way but through friendship, cooperation and smart utilization of their respective talents our heroes can overcome even the most difficult tests.
Watergirl and Fireboy are controlled by the player at the same time by pressing WSAD and the arrow keys depending on the character.
