Hot Lava is an action-adventure game that takes the player into the world of childish imagination. The title was developed by Canadian studio Klei Entertainment Ė the creators of titles like Donít Starve, Mark of the Ninja, Invisible Inc., and the Shank series.
The gameplay mechanics in Hot Lava were inspired by the popular child play known as ďthe floor is lavaĒ. The participants are imagining that the floor is covered by hot, volcanic lava and they are avoiding touching it at all cost. The same rule applies to the game developed by Klei Entertainment. The players are tasked with getting through a series of locations in such way that they donít touch or fall into the lava.
While playing the game, the players will visit corridors and rooms of a school, rooms of a house, and locations from the nightmares of a child. The action is presented from a third-person perspective and in each of the mentioned places the players must use their acrobatic abilities to climb or jump over various items, avoid traps, dangers, and the lava. The locations are filled with various items that can be used during the journey.
Although Hot Lava is a low-budget game, it features simple and nice-looking graphics.
