Firefighting Roguelike Flame Over Coming to PS4 Next Week, Runs at 1080p/60fps

September 10, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Released earlier this year on PlayStation Vita (read our review), Flame Over from Laughing Jackal is coming to PlayStation 4 on September 15 in North America and September 16 in Europe for £8.99/€11.99/$11.99.

A top-down shoot ’em up firefighting game featuring 16 randomly generated levels and four environments, Flame Over on PS4 includes these improvements over the PS Vita version:

  • Amazing Graphicalness – You’ll be blown away by the amount of detail in our 3D environments, which really get to shine on the big screen, plus we’ve thrown in lots of sexy touches like bloom, real time shadows, and all that jazz. The game also loads near-instantly and is full 1080p 60fps.
  • Interactive Tutorial – we’ve made a training-friendly tutorial where you can play through two levels of the game fully powered up, getting to test out lots of the game’s extra equipment and power-ups in a slightly less dangerous environment. This is firefighting, however, so you’ll still need to be on your toes if you don’t want to fry!
  • Even More Extra Stuffs – The PS4 version of Flame Over features additional rooms, secrets and mechanics to make it the ultimate version of the game.

Laughing Jackal Senior Producer Alasdair Evans explained why Flame Over doesn’t include cross-buy:

We added quite a bit of extra stuff to PS4 much of which couldn’t be done on Vita from a technical standpoint, so it wasn’t really plausible or fair to throw both sets of players in together. However, what this does mean is that both versions play to their own console’s strengths and a Vita patch is in sub that will bring it as close to the PS4 version as we can.

As for Trophy support, Flame Over includes 20 Bronze, 10 Silver, 5 Gold, and a Platinum.
