I am delighted to report that Kill him with fire is now available on Xbox One! It’s full of insidious spiders, an increasingly ridiculous arsenal, and incredibly complex (but flammable) environments. It’s also full of objectives, puzzles, challenges, secrets, two different leveling systems, a secret ending (oops, spoilers) and achievements!
When you start your spider hunting crusade Kill him with fire, you won’t have much. Only your wits and a trusty clipboard, a great essential tool for crushing spiders, which displays a list of your current goals. As you unlock new areas (killing spiders, of course), you’ll discover additional objectives to complete. These are optional, but there are some fantastic reasons to supplement them.
First, they are a kind of “self-guided tutorial” to introduce various concepts and systems to novice exterminators. Then you’ll occasionally come across a locked door or container that requires a number of objectives to be completed to open – these tend to have the best goodies hidden inside. Finally, each completed objective is worth one upgrade point – if you complete all of a mission’s objectives, you’ll unlock its Arachno Gauntlet (more on those later).
Upgrade points you say? That’s right, tons of upgrades are hidden throughout the game. Once you discover one (some are well hidden), you’ll need enough upgrade points to equip it. There are some crazy improvements in the game, from the usual suspects like increasing movement speed and inventory size, to downright broken like access to unlimited ammo and other shenanigans.
And this is only the first upgrade system. The other is for your Spider Tracker. This high tech little gadget is your best friend for finding spiders. And there are hidden tracker upgrades throughout the game to make it uniform After powerful. To equip them, however, you will need batteries, which are also hidden everywhere. But do you know what else is hidden everywhere? You guessed it: spiders.
In the first mission, you’ll face off against your variety of garden arachnid (literally). As the game continues, you’ll be battling different types of spiders, each with a new twist up their sleeves – and spiders have a lot of sleeves. Some like to jump in your face. Others draw canvases over your face. Then there are those who like to explode… in your face. Each mission brings a fresh new nightmare.
For those who really want to test their mettle against the spider genre, there is only one option: The Arachno-Gauntlet. These are special, timed objectives for the most extreme exterminators. Each mission has its own challenge: if you complete them all, you will unlock additional surprises at the end of the game.
Well, future spider hunters, that pretty much sums it up! If you think you have what it takes to become an exterminator, obtain a copy of Kill him with fire today! Do you have questions or just want to talk? Come say hello the official Kill him with fire Discord.
Kill him with fire
The spider – the oldest and deadliest enemy of mankind. As a licensed Kill It With Fire exterminator, it’s time to fight back! Gather your arsenal of increasingly excessive weapons, follow the spiders through the suburbs, and burn everything in your path! To defeat the spiders, you must exploit their only weakness: FIRE. Or bullets. Or explosions, throwing stars, getting run over by stuff… pretty much anything, really. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy – you have to find the spiders first. Use cutting-edge arachnid tracking technology to locate your quarry among hundreds of potential hiding places, then burn everything down and smash the spider with a frying pan after it runs out. This is the only way to be sure.
