That's because they are ps3 games, probably never will come to iOS.

Yeah, I did some googling and found that out. Thanks though.

After I finished the game, I was interested in trying to understand what the subtext of the game was. Tomorrow Corp, the developer of Little Inferno, on their web site mentions this YouTube video as doing a good job of analyzing the game:

http://youtu.be/f8nwRCW-tJU

The video contains spoilers, so do NOT watch it until after you finish the game. I found the analysis to be very interesting and thought provoking. I do think there may be another theme of the game that is not mentioned in the video, but the video producer's commentary seems very reasonable and insightful to me.

The sad thing is people will buy this and then, like the emperor try and justify to us just how wonderful it is when we can't see anything. The content and gameplay is invisible because there isn't any.

It's just a collection of broken toys shouting metaphysical nonsense while you throw them into flames and watch them convert into smoke. Beautiful, creepy, and oh so pretentious.

Cliche, but this is definitely second album syndrome.

Nonsense. I'm enjoying just watching things burn (which is stopping me from burning things in the real world) but the implied story and meaning behind it all is brilliant. After seeing the end you realise that eveything in the whole game is there for a reason and it all means something.

There's no magical "Oo everyone likes it so I must like it" going on here, but I can see how what's fun for one can be boring for another,
For me its great and well worth picking up.

(It might be worth saying I also like swords and sworcery, flow, flower, journey, etc... pretty much anything that try's to be a bit different than the norm)
It doesn't have to be an all out action game to be fun,

Finished this earlier today... Wow. It was absolutely amazing.
Does anyone know what (if anything) happens when you figure out all 99 combos?

Did you buy it?
It looks like you didn't, I stated earlier that I will give this game 2.99$.

I bought it and I stand firmly behind it, very fun, very intriguing, really makes you think sometimes, especially with the combos, I really like it.

Not worth 4.99 Defiantly worth my time, buy it now or wait a little for the drop, I like the (I guess it can be called) "side story" with the girl, I'm on catalog 4 but I guess it's gonna be brilliant style boss levels info on WOG like the "MOM" levels, I still get shivers from those signs... and how about the moon?

Random Protip: do not burn the coupon for a free hug

the CEO gives you a hug if you have it at the end of the game and itself a 100pt achievement!

First, I hate that spoilers don't help when you get email notifications.

Second, CRAP. I totally burned the crap out of the coupon

Guess there's reason to play again after all
