Use the arrow buttons to move Fireboy and Watergirl. When you are running, the other direction becomes a jump button. The arrow in the middle tells you which character you are currently controlling. Tap it or either character to switch between Fireboy and Watergirl.
Use the keyboard to move Fireboy and Watergirl through the maze and collect diamonds on the way to the exits. Use the A,W,D keys to move Watergirl and use the arrow keys to move Fireboy. Since fire and water don’t mix, be sure to not let Fireboy go in the water and don’t let Watergirl get burned in the fire. Now that you know the controls, lets go over some helpful tips and tricks.
Avoid the Green Lake
This one is pretty straightforward, we know that Fireboy can only go on fire and Watergirl can only go in water, but what about the green lake? Both Fireboy and Watergirl have to avoid the green lake. Remember that if one of the characters die you have to restart.
It might be tempting to run ahead with one character and try to finish the level with them before you go to the other, but there are some levels where this is just not possible. Some levels have switches and buttons that require you to use both characters to get through. Make sure to use both Fireboy and Watergirl in tandem to help you beat each level.
Study The Level Before
One helpful tip you can use is to study the level before you try to beat it. Take a second to look over the the level, see what kind of obstacles are in your way. Take note of the “danger” areas or areas with green lakes. Once you know where all the obstacles are you can start to plan out how you want to beat the level. Taking a second to look over the level beforehand can go a long way in helping you beat all the levels.
Play With a Friend
Playing with a friend can be a great way to beat all the levels on Fireboy and Watergirl. One player can control Fireboy while the other can control Watergirl. This splits the work in half and makes it, so you only must focus on one character. Plus who doesn’t love playing games with their friend?
