A Dance of Fire and Ice is a strict one-button rhythm game. You control two orbiting planets as they travel down a winding path.

If you like the browser demo at the top of the page, you can scroll down (or check Steam) to get the paid full version with remastered art and lots more features and levels!

Note that the itch.io version here is cheaper than the Steam version because it does not come with Steam Workshop support (Steam doesn't allow it!). Level editor and custom levels are still totally available, you just have to load the levels manually from a URL.

really fun

Incredible game! I have only played (and finished) the free version above, and will definitely buy the extended version. Pretty great music, and level 3-X is a huge challenge. Had to spend half an hour on it to learn it -- 10 minutes later, I have beaten it in 1.7X speed, and my finger begs me not to go further today :)


why is THE WIND UP so hard???? >:(

put it all together nowwwww

syllables syllables syllables, there what you get when clap a word out.


Why would I pay for a game if I have a fully functional one right here?


probably to support the dev


for the rest of the levels, level editor, better graphics, that sort-of thing

(1 edit)

Because it's more music and content in the downloaded version. This one is fully functional, but for those who enjoy the game and want more, there is the downloaded version which gets updated regularly


its too laggy you can hardly even play it

Deleted 2 days ago

well at least you have an actual chromebook, im stuck with a school chromebook

Fair enough

i have a school chromebook too, but it runs perfectly on mine. it's laggy because either you have to much things running at once, you have too much storage being taken up, or it's your internet

thats a problem with your internet connection

same you on laptop?


I really like this game great job.  The music is what kept bringing me back after I kept failing it was my favorite part


This is super creative. Great job



  • i have seen this on youtube its quite hard i havnt played it yet


Where did you make this music?

Also Level 2-x the song is great! Is there anywhere I can download the soundtrack for this game??

You can download the soundtrack at the to of the page Potayo.


Fire and ice hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm 



i can play for free in browser 

made it to wind up 1.7

To the creator: Is this mobile supported?

Well I am NOT the creator but no...I tried 

i made it to wind up 1.9

i made it to wind up 1.2



This is great, but maybe you should add a practice mode to get a feel of some of the harder levels.

I'm running it in Brave (Chromium-based) on macOS.

I tried it in Safari, and it does run at first, but attempts to play ran into various other game-breaking errors.

What browser/platform do you support, that I should try the demo on?



Brave and Chrome are functionally equivalent in terms of web compatibility.

brave have adblocker on yt
