Burn the Rope Worlds review (iPod/iPhone)September 16, 2011
♫ “Can you light me up tonight?
I’d like to see you burn me down”
10 word description: Sequel. Rope burning puzzles; tilt control; different themes, many levels.
10 word review: Polished, enhanced sequel packed with content. Simple, fun, attractive, challenging.
You will like this if you enjoy: Burn the Rope, casual puzzle games, games without time-limits, games involving a fair amount of tilting, games that are quite different from established iOS genres.
The good news: Improves and enhances the experience of the original. The rope-burning game mechanic, as well as being very different from the majority of iOS games is also perfect for tilt control. Graphics, effects, level design and interface are all of a high standard.
The bad news: Anyone with an aversion to tilting really won’t like this game. Personally, I’m not a huge tilting fan but it works really well in this game due to the natural feel of directing the upward burning flames.
Arcadelife verdict: This is a polished and content-rich game with a unique and convincing flame-guiding concept. There are no time limits and it’s possible to progress even if you don’t do a particularly great job on a tough level, due to the fairly lenient bronze rating. All four worlds are instantly accessible, so if you get half way through the first one (Jungle) and get stuck, or just want a change of theme, you can start playing any of the other worlds whenever you like.
Overall it’s a nice mix of challenge and relaxation with good looks and the aforementioned ton of content.
Arcadelife rating: 88/100
Version reviewed by Arcadelife is 1.0
