Embr

Embr

Embr is a frantic multiplayer title where players must fight fires and save clients from burning buildings. While it can be played solo, it’s clear that the game was designed for groups of four. Things start out relatively straightforward, but as players progress through the three districts, the missions become a lot more convoluted. This might annoy players looking for a straightforward firefighting game, but the large levels filled with traps and puzzles do keep things interesting. Embr does have some rough edges and can do with a bit more polish in its current state, but overall it is a lot of fun.

Gameplay: An absolute blast to play with friends and plenty of reasons to keep coming back for more.

Graphics: The visuals are simple but fit the over-the-top style of the game.

Sound: Decent sound effects and a nice jazzy soundtrack to accompany the chaos
