Its dark and youre alone amidst the sounds of the forest. Strike up a flame to light your way in this alluring and dangerous world. 

Encounter malevolent flowers, falling leaves and dark rain as the forest seeks imaginative ways to extinguish your flame. Rescue luminous seeds to refuel your light and help you fight the growing darkness. 

Swipe, dodge and burn to stay alive as you move through the obstacles in a dance of fire. 


- Spark up your match to experience the graceful single touch control of seven richly-colored flames 

- Progress through four enchanting worlds as you learn to master the element of fire.

- Rescue seeds to unlock beautiful flames & spells that assist you in the darkness - no iAP :)

- Zen mode, Infinite-play worlds, Game Center leaderboards and achievements with bonus seeds.

- Home brewed by two people and one pencil-top sheep using 5000 matches and gallons of Irish tea.

What's this? Is this some kind of tech demo or a game or just some novelty? It looks more like a novelty to me.

I bought this as soon as I saw it was available in the US. After gaming since the 70s anything new and/or unique catches my eye and my $. This one is both. You light a "match" which is your cursor, and then try to catch as many other spots of light that fall from the top of the screen to keep your flame from burning out. But there are other things in the game that are after the falling light and your flame as well. Plants grow in tendrils and will grab the falling light before you can. They'll also grab you and put out your flame which ends the game. There are also falling dark leaves and rain drops that can extinguish your flame. As time goes by the vegetation will fill in the screen if you don't keep it at bay. You do this by burning the plants back. You can upgrade your flame as well as pick up other add-ons but there is no IAP that I've seen.
A great game with a slick presentation and a refreshing change of gameplay pace.
