As a little kid did you ever want to grow up to be a fire fighter? Well Bouncy Fire Fighters may be your only chance! Now you can rescue gorgeous blond girls and put out fires all while bouncing on trampolines. Dreams DO come true!

To be honest when I loaded this game up I wasn't expecting much, it seemed a tad low budget and generally just poor quality, luckily my early judgments were totally blown out of the water and I really did enjoy Bouncy Fire Fighters. Basically, Bouncy Fire Fighters plays like a Breakout game where you control a "paddle" and you hit the ball, or in this case a fireman, to try and hit, and therefore save, the people above you and put out fires. Also along the line of this allusion comes plenty of power-ups which range from typical point increase to calling superman to exploding the map and killing everyone. A wide range but I find the power-ups are my favorite part of the game.

The only real problem I have with Bouncy Fire Fighters is the controls. You can use either the mouse or the arrow keys yet you have to click things with the mouse even though I prefer to play with the arrow keys. So it's mainly a slight annoyance in that aspect (which many games fail by the way). But, in general I found the controls and the bouncing fireman dynamics to be a little off and made the game kind of hard to love. Overall though I found Bouncy Fire Fighters to be a pleasant surprise in an otherwise dull flash game week and I urge all to give it a try!

  1. Reminds me of a mario DS mini-game... nostalgia'd now. I love the name though, some flash games are taken so seriously, some are just plunked a name that couldn't sum it up more. :D
