PRESS QUOTES

SlideToPlay
... Helsing's Fire is one of those puzzle games that does something completely original and is unbelievably entertaining.

Eurogamer
... With its insidious wit and gothic charm, Helsing's Fire is a joyously original instant classic that iPhone owners should buy immediately.

TouchArcade
... It's one of the most unique games I've ever played and is a true App Store gem. Surely only a creature of darkness would let this one slip by them.

TheAppera
... Helsing's Fire reinvents the puzzle yet again with some light and dark dynamics I guarantee you have NOT seen yet. Prepare to be enthralled!

GamePro
... This is a game that would absolutely only work on the iOS platform, and it's hands-down one of the best games on the App Store. It gets my highest recommendation.

ADDICTIVE PUZZLES
Helsing's Fire features a brand-new puzzle mechanic never before seen: use the touch-screen to position Helsing's torch to illuminate different combinations of monsters, then destroy them in the correct order using Raffton's supply of different tonics. The quick, rewarding puzzles make it a perfect game for brief play-sessions, but you'll always want to play 'just one more level'!

A HUGE, DARK UNIVERSE
With puzzles set across four worlds, with 30 different levels in each world, all featuring fifteen different monster types including four bosses, Helsing's Fire provides an incredibly
rich, deep, and varied game experience. And because on replays puzzles are re-generated randomly, the game will always be fresh!

COMPELLING SETTING
The Victorian theme, Gothic setting, and engaging characters make Helsing's Fire one of the most appealing story-oriented puzzle games released. Add to that the distinct minimalist style of the character portraits, the incredible dynamic lighting of the shadows cast by your moving torch, and an original soundtrack, and it's clear that Helsing's Fire presents an epic experience. Designed just for the iPhone, this is high-quality mobile gaming at its finest.

MULTIPLE MODES AND ACHIEVEMENTS
As if the 120 distinct levels weren't enough, Helsing's Fire also comes with additional Endless Survival and Online Bounty modes, for the bravest of the brave! And when you've stood against the horde as long as you can, you can post your scores on the fully-integrated Crystal leaderboards, earning achievements for your accomplishments and claiming bragging rights from your friends.

Dracula must be stopped. Raffton, take the tonics: it's time to head into the Blight!

picked it up!

Played it last night on the hardest difficulty there is, was nice, though I think I haven't done one too many puzzles, so it's still pretty easy for me.

Thanks for the sale!

I have come to correct my really early assumption.

After crossing over from the first boss in game, the difficulty really ramped up! Now, I'm stuck on the first row last box! HAHA!

A quick question. There's an achievement for finishing the game on absurd difficulty. Now my question relates to how you get this. Does the game keep track of each level completed and at what difficulty? For example, can I start a game on normal, and then switch to absurd to get the achievement?

If not, why is it so easy to mix the difficulty on one campaign mode? You'd think they keep them separate if that were the case.

I think the graphics are totally worth the price.

Very very late to the party, but whenever a puzzle game is released this name also pops up somewhere .. I was wondering if this game runs on iOS 7 ? There has not been an update for 2 years and I do not want to buy something that does not run.

Gave it a quick spin and it seems to work fine (iPad 2, iOS 7.0).

I just tested it, the game runs fine, as does every game I've tried since the iOS 7 update.
I think the vast majority of games works under iOS 7.

Helsing's Fire is a great game, it's been on my iDevices since release day, and it's one of those games I've played through several times.

Totally worth the asking price.

Helsing's Fire was actually the very first game I bought for the second-gen iPod Touch I was given a few years ago. I grabbed the HD version when I got my iPad partially because the iPhone version has a couple of bugs when played on an iPad, and was rather impressed with the fact that both versions are tailored for their particular devices, rather than one just being a scaled-up/down version of the other.
