Continue the adventures of two favorite elements! The labyrinth platformer Fireboy & Watergirl in The Light Temple (Fireboy & Watergirl 2) tasks a player or players with helping popular elemental characters Fireboy and Watergirl explore yet another ancient temple. This time, the duo must learn how to bring light to the darkest recesses of 40 different underground rooms in addition to solving logic puzzles and escaping deadly traps.
Much of the gameplay is identical to the first installment. Fireboy still can't touch water and must collect rubies. Watergirl still can't touch fire and must collect diamonds. Both characters must stay away from green goo. They face many of the same types of logic puzzles that require that they adjust levers, stand on buttons and push objects into different positions.
This game differs from its predecessor by adding a historic tool to the logic puzzles. Ancient cultures often used shiny surfaces to reflect outdoor light into rooms and even underground. Fireboy and Watergirl must use different types of mirrors and light sensors to move through the rooms.
They might need to move out of the way to allow light to hit a sensor or push a box with a mirror in it to a specific spot. They might also need to adjust mirrors that rotate 90 degrees. This game even features pitch black rooms that the player or players must navigate using only light generated by the characters.
