Burn It All
Have you ever seen a game, and just knew
it was going to be great? That is what happened with Burn It All. I saw
videos and screenshots of this iPhone/iPod Touch game and had a really
good feeling about it. I just knew it was going to be a wonderful game.
And then I started to play it. I found myself excited because my
instincts and intuition were right on. Which made me feel really good.
In Burn It All you get to take on the role of a cute little flame. Well technically there is more than one, but lets not quibble over little details. You have so much time to burn through everything on your way to the sun. After all what does a little flame dream about? Where would a little flame go? Ropes are the main obstacles in Burn It All. There are things like bats, and wooden shapes too.
The first thing that stuck out about Burn It All is the polish and shine in the graphics. This game looks astounding. I have played a lot of apps these past few years, and the graphics in Burn It All are upper echelon. I do not see burning through ropes, or wood as violent personally. The cartoon bats would qualify for cartoon violence. Thankfully there are not a lot of them, and they have a Looney Tunes feel to their demise.
The sounds fit the theme of this game, and they are very energetic. I enjoyed the music in Burn It All. This app lets you know when time is about ready to expire. Which is one of many special effect sounds that enhance the video game experience. The flame characters are cute, and their goal of reaching the sun through one hundred levels is fascinating.
Yes I did say one hundred levels. Burn It All sells for ninety-nine cents. We were provided a download code, but I would have purchased Burn It All on my own. The quality of this game is up there, and the concept behind the game is fantastic. If all the levels were not enough there are also achievements that can be earned in Burn It All. Do well or poorly and you will find them. I found many of them. You can also post your progress on Facebook.
Burn It All includes a lot more strategy than you may think. Water drops will douse your flame, and you have to go back to the firepit. Some ropes burn faster than others. There are gas explosions that will send a blast of fire off, but it makes you go back to the fire pit. Different flames have different powers. The clocks is always ticking. Some levels are harder than others. Burn It All does progressively get more difficult. I had a ton of fun playing Burn It All.
I really hope and pray that Bulkypix continues to release games like this in the future. A sequel to Burn It All would be very welcome. The one aspect of Burn It All that may bother some families is the burning aspect. I did not see anything that encourages pyromania personally. The flames in Burn It All destroy everything in their path. If anything it shows the dangers of fire. Burn It All is a different kind of experience and I feel blessed to have been able to experience it.
