Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Firefly Hero is a puzzle app featuring a firefly that is drawn to light bulbs when they are lit. The idea is to get the firefly to collect all the stars on a level by attracting it toward the lights in a logical order. Kids turn the lights on and off to keep the firefly on course and to keep it from running into the spikes. The firefly can be made to change direction mid-flight by turning on a different light bulb. The app has 75 increasingly difficult levels that teach players the rules as they go. Players earn a golden leaf by making the firefly travel on the shortest possible path, though the levels can be completed without earning the leaf. Gameplay is similar to Cut the Rope in the kind of logic that is used.
What's it about?
FIREFLY HERO is a logic puzzler where kids catch stars as a firefly journeys toward a light bulb. As the levels advance, kids must maneuver the firefly around obstacles, like spiders and webs, or deal with restrictions like only being able to fly to broken light bulbs one time. Kids earn a gold star for each level completed. The app is fun and challenging and puts logic skills to work.
Is it any good?
Firefly Hero is a fun and challenging puzzle app that is often compared to Cut the Rope. While it is a logic puzzle game, the puzzles are solved with a fair amount of active tapping since sometimes the light bulbs have to be lit in quick succession to steer the firefly. The ability to skip trickier puzzles and the lack of a timer make the app less intimidating and more fun for younger players. The game has an addictive quality that will keep puzzle fans busy and challenged.
