The Game:
When you encounter a block with eyes that glow, walking through it will throw up information that you'll need to play the game effectively and successfully; for example, the first one you'll encounter is right at the beginning of level 1. Where you are shown the control keys for the game. You'll encounter several of these as you progress through the levels. I've included screen captures of some of them below.
Jump = left control
Movement = ↑, ↓, ← & →
Destroy Block = Left Alt
Restart Level = Tab
Exit to the sub menu = Esc
Choice Speed game = Home/End
Music Volume = Insert/delete
Sound Volume = PgUp/PgDown
Exit the Game = Alt + F4

To move over obstacle you must first stop then jump. To open doors you have to light all of the fires in the bowls (see the third image below for details). Just walk up to a bowl for it to light up. There are also dangerous traps that are turned on by walking over secret blocks. Other secret blocks will open secret passage's, stairs and other treasures. You can tell when you are near one of these positive secret blocks as there will be symbols with stylized star burst symbols nearby. Those secret blocks that turn on traps do not have any indicators, so beware.

There are also block keys where you push yellow blocks into pits to turn off the pillars of fire that block your way. While exploring a level you can pick up various treasures such as precious stones, though these are not compulsory for finishing a level. You'll also find treasures in jugs. Just use the 'Left Alt' key to swing your hammer to break them open to claim your treasure.

To pass over fire pits walk or jump onto hand holds to allow you to swing across. If you get caught by one of the traps you will die inws. to restart the level press Tab and it will take you to the beginning of the level you died on. When restarting the game you can replay any level that has been unlocked. There are twenty levels to explore. Along the top of the level field you can find your score, the number of treasures to find; these count down as you discover them. Also shown are the number of fires you need to light to open the exit door and the level number.
Conclusion:
Fiery Catacombs is a reasonably well made puzzle platformer, with easy to medium hard levels to work through. The only negative for me was the controls, some are not the usual keys used for the commands they have been linked to; for example, left control for jumping. This game would be improved somewhat if you could edit the key bindings. Overall I'd give this a 7 out of 10 for game play, average puzzles and reasonably graphics.

It looked like a fun game, but the laggy keyboard control was too quirky and became very frustrating. I agree with Whiterabbit-uk that it really needs key assignment capability (the re-learning curve compared to standard game controls, like space for jump instead of left Ctrl, was a big hindrance). I'm not sure why the ctrl/alt keys were not very responsive.

I uninstalled it but did not vote above, since a "thumbs down" is a little too harsh for an otherwise decent game.

Game description - System Requirements : Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8

It doesn't work under Windows XP .

Error message :
"FieryCatacombs.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point inet_pton could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.dll" .

I am starting to hate Falco games ...

My Win 7 PC Specifications
Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1 ,
Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz , 4 Gb memory (DDR 2) ,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .

It doesn't work under Windows 7 .

Error message :

" Error: Failed to extract zip file - Could not open the zip file:
C:/__ __G A M E S/GameGAOTD__20191009_I#I.09-10-2019 - Fiery catacombs/medi/extract.tmp
in wadlib0.5.ags at line 348 " .

I use Greek letters in the name of the folder where the game is installed .
In the error message I've noticed that the Greek letters were replaced by some weird characters .
So , I've deduced that the setup file of the game can't handle Greek letters or special characters .
After removing the Greek letters from the name of the folder , the game worked without a problem .

Now I have to check if the same thing applies to the Falco games that I've installed under Windows XP
and don't work .
I will get back and let you know .

Now , about the game...
I've played it for about 20 min.
It took me awhile to get the handle of the controls .
Looks very interesting and definitely worth spending time on it .
I thing that it will be very enjoyable after getting comfortable with the use of the controls .
It reminds me of an old game called "Crystal Cave Classic" .

JEDIGEG,

THIS may help solve the issue with WS2_32.dll issue?
