Hot Lava transports players back to their childhood of jumping from couch to chair, chair to floor mat while never touching the actual floor. The game when we were kids was only Hot Lava in name, but Klei has taken it to a whole new level by making the entire floor actual lava! This First person Parkour game lets players face off together to try reaching the end of the map with the fastest, and hopefully coolest time. Try not to get burned while you navigate through these treacherous halls!
- Game Mechanics. The game has some very interesting mechanics and a really fun play-style. Levels have helpful items like ropes and sticky walls to help the player move forward.
- Challenge. The game gets more challenging the longer you play. Not that the maps necessarily get harder, but other players get better times and if you want to be the top dog, you need to get better too!
- Hardcore Parkour! Just what it says, the game is a giant parkour challenge, move fast, jump high and be accurate. What ever you do, don’t touch the floor!
- The levels. The different area maps while fun and unique the first few times can become somewhat repetitive. I could only play a map 4-6 times before growing tired of it.
Hot Lava lets players compete in the ultimate game of “Don’t touch the floor” aka “Hot Lava“! A unique and fun style of parkour action play shows Klei Entertainments dedication to providing players with fun ways to play. Players can unlock now character skins as they play and advance, as well as new and interesting levels. Competing against other players for the fastest run makes the game a continual challenge and a welcome change to the monotony in the same only first person shooter style competitive world. Finally my years of platform gaming will pay off!
