This wiki has been moved to https://github.com/SuperTux/wiki into the mediawiki branch.
The behaviour of the fireflower in SuperTux 0.1 was that it gives Tux the ability to spit bouncing fire bullets. If these bullets strike a badguy then they are killed. However that behaviour is pretty boring and should be reworked to something more interesting, ie. something that not just kills enemies, but interacts with them in interesting ways.
There are currently no plans to change the existing behaviour.
