Description

Jones on Fire - a high-speed action game of kitty saving and flame evading, running and jumping, where YOU are the hero! Become Emma Jones, firefighter extraordinaire, tough cookie and kitten lover. Beat 10 levels of dangerous mountain terrain, improving Jones’ skills with every fluffy life saved. Dominate your friends on the kitty-saving leaderboards, and gain the adoration of millions of cats! Save the kitties! You’re their only hope!

History

Jones On Fire began its life at BlazeJam (http://www.blazejam.com), a 48 hour charity game jam to benefit those affected by the Colorado wild fire season of 2012. An initial alpha of the game was made in 48 hours, and polished over the next week. You can even play the alpha of Jones On Fire, if you choose to buy the BlazeJam bundle. The game has evolved substantially since those days, though. It’s been rebuilt for mobile devices, all of the art has been redone or replaced, the moment to moment gameplay is substantially changed, a level structure was added, etc, etc. Compared to the alpha, the game Jones On Fire is a whole other animal. That is, except for the kitties. Those are still the same animal.

Features

  • Kitties. Also, a butt-kickin' Firefighter lady.
  • Fast, frenetic side-scrolling fun.
  • Intuitive controls.
  • Juicy, kinectic platforming physics.
  • Fun in short bursts, but addictive enough for longer plays.
  • Upgrade Jones with increasingly spiffy fire-fighting skills.
  • Compete with your friends on kitty-saving leaderboards.
  • Blocky, retro visuals with just a touch of the modern.
  • Rockin' tunes.

About Glass Bottom Games

Boilerplate
Glass Bottom Games LLC is a Denver-based independent developer of video games for desktop and mobile devices. It was founded by industry veterans in 2011, with Lisa Foster on production, Megan Fox on tech, and Dennis Dryden on art. Our focus? We create exciting, new player-centric worlds where interactivity, exploration, and choice matter. These days, we’re kind of a loosely knit collaborative group. Only a few of us are full-time, and some of us have ventures going outside of Glass Bottom Games. We come together as project scope and our interests coincide.
