I'm no therapist, but I'm pretty sure that next to the word "catharsis" in the dictionary, there's a just a screenshot from Kill it with Fire.
I don’t feel like there is anything here I can recommend to players unless they are deathly afraid of spiders or want to fake scream for a livestream show or two. The spiders can’t even hurt you, so the stakes here are literally zero for those not already stricken with bug phobia.
It still lacks tension, something that I suspect could be fixed by patching in a hardcore “damage” mode, and spider-hunting is, at its core, repetitive. But Kill It With Fire gives you the resources to turn a mundane activity into glorious, cartoony, house-torching mayhem. Best experienced in short bursts, if you only play one spider-murder sandbox this year, play Kill It With Fire.
A short and sweet distraction, Kill It With Fire is a quirky experiment in overreacting and pest control that will hold your attention for an hour or two.
It may be very short, but Kill It with Fire is creative and entertaining all the same. I'll never look at a frying pan the same way again.
There is no real reason to be gripped by the game other than the sheer determination to wipe out the constant waves of impending nasties, so if you’re looking for depth – this ain’t it. Saying that, this would be a weird place to come for such things. It is what it is – an effective and stupidly addictive spider-killing and house-smashing game. There is, quite honestly, nothing more to say other than… kill it with fire.
