Firebox - Game Jam 5 Entry

Firebox is my entry to the Arduboy Game Jam 5. It’s like a sandbox, only with fire! Experiment with setting various things on fire :fire:


  • Hold A to increase fire
  • Up + down arrows choose different objects to drop
  • Left + right arrows move the object to drop
  • B drops the object

Source code and HEX release can be found on Github here:



Hey, this is a fun little toy.

The joys of being a pyroman… arduboy gamer (just a joke CIA). It’s cool how you made different items with their own reactions. The paper went away quickly, the Zelda bomb behaved like a bomb I guess lol. The fire is satisfying on a whole

This is a fun little toy. But why burn Arduboys!? We need other gadgets to burn up!!

Did anyone else try to put out the fire?

The fire animation looks so good I just like watching it do its thing

Is the screen wrapping for the fire deliberate?

The screen wrapping is just down to how the fire algorithm works so is deliberate

It’s a shame, as it limits building some more complex structures and burning them in a controlled way.

We need ragdolls :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: and ragdoll-kids lol!
