Default Helsing's Fire - from Ratloop & Chillingo - This blight needs light.


Helsing's Fire is a new puzzle game for your iTelemophone. From IGF nominee (didn't win) Ratloop and kickin-rad publisher Chillingo.

Briefly
Guide Helsing's brilliant torch and use Raffton's powerful tonics to pierce the shadows and destroy Dracula's horde.

Bullets
- Brand new puzzle mechanic. Not a match-3 variant! Wow!
- 90 Levels, randomly generated for a new game each time.
- Survival mode to battle an endless horde and compare scores.
- Quali-T story following Helsing and his assitant Raffton on their quest to clear the blight of evil.
- Some other stuff!

Screenshots



This started out as a really simple action game six months ago and morphed into the story-driven puzzle game it is now. I think it's pretty fun, even after having worked on it way too much. The puzzles are easy to understand and satisfying to solve.

We're putting some final polish on it and hopefully it should be out in a few weeks.

Cheers!

Looks great Lucas! Love the art style and originality. I'm curious as to how you control the darn thing though.

Can't wait for the release, must torch monsters now!

Speaking of IGF did ratloop do RocketBirds? The name sounds so familiar

Hi guys.

The torch appears wherever you touch, so it's not a line-drawing game. The trick is in manipulating the shadows to illuminate the right monsters at the right time.

VeganTNT, you're right! Rocketbirds is a Ratloop game, but that was made by a few other guys on the team. I made a drawing game called Mightier a few years ago with my wife. Mightier was also nominated for an IGF award, and also didn't win.
