Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Burn it All - Journey to the Sun is a puzzle game that casts players as a small flame that climbs from the center of the earth to the sun. To do so, they'll need to burn their way through ropes and avoid obstacles like water droplets and ice. The game avoids commercialism and, despite its flame-y protagonist, any real violence. The game supports both Open Feint and Game Center, along with Flurry (which provides data to the publisher about how players play the game). Additionally, players are encouraged to log into Facebook to post their score (or email it to a friend) after completing every level.
Is it any good?
Burn it All - Journey to the Sun strives to follow in the footsteps of Cut the Rope, with a cute hero and a collection of unique puzzles, and it almost hits the mark. The game is certainly fun and increases difficulty at a very gradual and forgiving pace. And when players aren't able to complete a level, it doesn't mean they're finished, as the game smartly includes the ability to skip areas that are proving too challenging. The controls, however, aren't quite right, and the constant pressure to share your scores is a bit grating after a while. Still, for the price, this is a great way for puzzle fans to waste a few hours.
