Kill It With Fire

The spider - mankind’s most ancient and deadly nemesis. As a licensed Kill It With Fire exterminator, it’s time to fight back! Assemble your arsenal of increasingly excessive weapons, track spiders across suburbia, and burn everything in your path! To defeat spiders you must exploit their one weakness: FIRE. Or bullets. Or explosions, throwing stars, gettin’ smushed by stuff...pretty much anything, really. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be easy - first you’ve gotta find the spiders. Use state-of-the-art arachnid tracking technology to pinpoint your target's location among hundreds of potential hiding spots - then, torch everything and smash the spider with a frying pan after it runs out. It’s the only way to be sure.

Do you see a spider? Kill it with fire!
Out of ammunition? Don’t be shy! Then just kill it with a frying pan, a laser sword, an anvil or any item you can find around. I know, you wanna do it… just don’t get used to these killing methods. You really don’t want to use a RPG against a spider crawling out of a dark corner of your home.
Perfection / 100% achievement time: 5-6h, no serious grind required, this is actually the playtime the game offers with all the challenges needed to be done.
Perfection difficulty: 3/10. It is possible that at the first time you will think that some Arachno-Gauntlets challenges on the levels are hard. Then you will unlock the energy drink utility item. Nope, you won’t get wings, but the world will slow down around you. Now hitting fast crawling spiders with shurikens suddenly starts to be an option:-)
Missable achievements?: Yes, but levels are replayable
Steam achievement guide available?: Yes, there is one for achievements, one for collectibles. Those not properly updated tho, now some extra weapons and abilities earned on last level when decorating the christmas tree there. This action is required for the 4 “get all” types of achievements and not mentioned in the guides.
Gameplay
The gameplay is quite simple. Kill spiders with various weapons, utility items or anything available on the level. Reach a set kill amount to open the door to progress to the next level.
That is not all though, each level has many alternative and funny tasks, the areas and the items you can find around are destructible, and just like in any games, there are some secrets, hidden rooms and some very basic puzzles.
As you progress on your spider killing adventure you will find new weapons, upgrades and bonuses, these will aid you in your pest control mission:-) Some of these upgrades offer alternate game experience, like tiny mode which makes you just as huge as the spiders (yeah, that mode is scary:-D).
While you can’t take any damage, so this is a fun oriented, humorous game, the only thing still missing for me is a fight at the end against some bigger, mutant spider.
Conclusion
Relatively short game, fairly priced and actually quite funny and entertaining. The playtime is just enough and probably a longer game would just repeat itself and could become boring.
Visuals: 7/10
Sound effects/tracks: 6/10, dont not start it with a headset and adjust volume, else you will be deaf, and turn off jumpscare sound effects if you have problems with your heart.
Atmosphere: 8/10. Do not play the game while suffering from arachnophobia.
Difficulty: 3/10,
Amount of crash: zero on win10
Games, similar to Kill it with fire: I think I not played any similar games yet but you don’t need any other game to know what can you expect, just try the free demo first:

Review from Steam

Streamed this over discord to some friends. Was told the revolver and shotgun were a bit too much for just spiders. Was told that C4 shouldn't be used that way. The moment we encountered a jumping spider to the face, the liberal and violent use of C4 was suddenly okay and encouraged. 10/10 would blow up spiders again.

This game helped me battle my arachnophobia

Review from Steam

A cathartic experience for us spider-haters out there
arachnophobia
/əˌraknəˈfəʊbɪə/
noun
extreme or irrational fear of spiders.
According to Wikipedia, arachnophobia affects around 3.5 to 6.1 percent of the global population. Out of 7.9 billion humans, that percentage equals a lot, making it one of the most common phobias out there. So what does this game do? It take that phobia, amplify it ten times, but at the same time they gave you an arsenal of weaponry that is enough to supply a small army. Welcome... to Kill It With Fire.
Gameplay
Kill It With Fire is played from a first person perspective, which I despise because it makes the scares much more effective. Looking at the screenshots, the game appears to be a sandbox game which you're given free reign to incite chaos everywhere. While that is true, half of the game is played more akin to a hidden object game as a good chunk of the game's objectives, collectibles and upgrades are hidden in plain sight.
The main enemy of this game is of course, the spiders. They are literally everywhere: inside a pizza box, behind a picture frame, underneath crops, etc; if it's an object, there's a good chance these bastards are sticking on it. To make things worse, there are different types of spiders with each one exhibiting a unique power such as the Zombie Spider that can revives previously dead spiders, Jumping Spider that likes to leap quickly to your face (this one's the worst for me), and Exploding Spider that, well... explodes. Fortunately, the game is kind enough to provide you with a tracker that allows you to monitor these creatures very, very carefully.
On to the weapons. The wacky selection of available weaponry that I can use to bring down hell onto these spiders is very versatile. It definitely reminds me a little bit of the Dead Rising games where you can pick up the most mundane of objects and use it as a deadly killing machine. From the humble frying pan to the rapid-firing assault rifle to the exquisite saw launcher, there's a weapon that can cater to everyone's playstyle. In fact, there's a whole category of weapons that is solely dedicated to causing fire such as the flamethrower, C4 and the freaking lightsaber (or laser sword because copyright).
There are a total of 10 levels in the game ranging from the backyard of a house to a gas station. Each of them are brimmed with details and filled with hundreds of items that can be pick up, examined and rotated around. Level design is absolutely fantastic. Never once do I felt like the levels are copy-and-pasted as each one have their own recognizable identity. Some levels even provide shortcuts to the starting area, preventing you from getting lost.
Every level also have their own selected set of objectives, collectibles (in the form of batteries) and upgrades scattered around. Completing the objectives and collecting the batteries give you points that you can use to upgrade yourself and your tracker. This is where the hidden object aspect of the game came into play. I do admit that I used a guide for this one as some of these are fairly well-hidden. You really have to search every nook and cranny to 100% this game.
Story
Yes, there is a story in the game. They're presented as snippets of breadcrumbs by finding the Omega Files and through environmental storytelling in the levels. In a nutshell, basically the abundance of spiders is caused by a spider apocalypse that attacks the whole world. That's the reason why the town you're in is completely abandoned, as the people in there either run away or eaten alive by the spiders.
You are working as a spider exterminator in a company called Kill It With Fire (yes, the same name as the game itself). However, it looks like not even the company can eliminate the problem as one of the files mentioned two operatives named West and Stone, "or what's left of them", implying that they either commit suicide or got killed by the spiders.
The level Contingency Omega concludes with the exterminator detonating a freaking nuke that completely obliterates the whole town. In the last level, aptly titled Consequences, you can see a lot of missing posters, including animals. The end of the level also have the new protagonist willingly being abducted by a gigantic spaceship with large, car-sized glowing spiders latching on to it. Yep, the story gets dark real quick.
Length and Replayability
It took me around 10 hours to complete the main game and get around 80% of all of the extra content. After that, I used a guide to collect everything else that pushes the playtime to 13 hours in total. As for replayability, there's a big potential. The game is a great stress reliever and serves well as one of those 'pick up and play for half an hour' kind of games.
The Rest
There is an arachnophobia setting in the game's option menu. You can choose to replace the spider models with small circular blobs, similar to the game Grounded. This significantly help those that doesn't like facing the damn spiders.
I really enjoy the game sense of humor. Especially when reading the flavor text for the weapons.
The mission design for the objectives have good variety. For example, the garden level have a couple of riddles that involves simple puzzle-solving mechanic.
After completing all objectives, you unlock a game mode called Arachno-phobe where you have to do special objectives in a time limit.
Music is pretty forgettable though. There are two music; one is in the main menu and one is when you started a Arachno-phobe.
You can put modifiers in each levels to change certain aspects. Special mention to the Christmas and Halloween mode that gives you new objectives and weapons.
There is an interesting community event in the backyard level. I won't spoil anymore than that.
Verdict
Kill It With Fire exist for one purpose: to give you endless amount of way to inflict endless amount of pain onto the eight-legged creatures. The rest of the factors; graphics, music, animations, etc are serviceable at best. But that's completely fine, as the game's main attraction is the pure gameplay, and Kill It With Fire executed it excellently.

Review from Steam

Kill It With Fire is a rather simple game, where you fool yourself around some static locations and kill spiders that are infesting all the world around.
It is very short, and with every new level, you'll be unlocking some new equipment - read 'the ways for a complete spider extermination'.
The spiders can't fight back! There is no way to get a Game Over which makes your 'fight' a pure spider-o-cide. Don't think you're a good guy around. You wreak havoc and destruction. It is fun, though.
The level of destruction is noticeable, but nothing really exaggerating.
Despite the fact that you can't lose, you need some aiming skill and fast thinking, to get some of the challenges aka 'gauntlets', when your actions are strictly limited by the time limit.
So, to summarize: it's another simple and quick game to complete for achievements, if you care for that stuff, or just let off some steam, destroying some furniture and whatnot to get some little annoying posters. Plus, some cheap Steam cards.
I don't think you need to rush for it, especially for the full price, but if you get it via some bundle or big sale - it's not a bad game to have, after all! Nothing too fancy, of course, my mark is 5.6/10, but... it's definitely not some shovelware. Just a small game for some silly joy, for an hour or so.
Oh, and you can always get the overall impression just by downloading a demo version, a 'teaser', from the game's store page.
