At first I thought the game is a match-3, but its supposed to be some kind of puzzle adventure I think?

Edit: there is a lite version to try; Added the link to the first post.

Looks like one of those games that could go either way, its either real good or its total crap. I'll probably try the lite out later.

Im playing through the tutorial in the lite. Its a pretty good game actually.

What happens is that you play as a masked fellow whose task is to set everything on fire. The tutorial starts you with small boxes (yellow) that just burns similarly small boxes next to it, but you slowly have to manage bigger boxes with bigger explosive radius (up to 2 tiles away). There are other game elements (from the screens I see in appshopper) like launchers, robots, etc. Depending on the combos you make and how fast you clear the screen, your points will be higher.

In a way, its a little like bomberman, but not really. But really, just try the lite and you will see what I mean and hopefully you'll like the game.

All the artwork in the game is pretty amazing, well, all except how the tiles themselves look. Its a bit flat to me (e.g. the green leafy stuff on the background of the levels).

so it sounds good in an action sense but is there any touch of plot/story to go with it? I'll give it a shot today.

No plot. Just a guy burning stuff level after level lol

Its a good game, but not great. Lite definitely worth trying though

Not to be a contrarian, but "guy burning stuff" is like my all-time favorite plot ever. Just saying.

been playing this for a while there's tons of levels! the backgrounds change in the full version and puzzles get pretty hard. after a while they even introduce new block types.

definitely worth a look!

I tried the lite, and it's just ok, very easy and flat. Not challenging enough.
