Against the Fire, the latest dual-stick shooter from Meridian Digital Entertainment, changes that. The company that brought us the new classic Alive 4 Ever has us fighting fire in this game.
You play as a firefighter charged with saving what appear to be cloned waiters in a highrise, who are scared out of their minds. As you roam each floor looking for people, three different kinds of fireballs follow you around and attack immediately. You must use your hose to extinguish these almost adorable fiends."
