... To simply describe Helsing's Fire ($0.99) by Clickgamer as a puzzle game would be a great injustice. First off, it's a truly unique puzzle game, a rarity on a system in which even the newest of games can almost always be compared to a previous release.
... The game never stops hitting the player with new gameplay mechanics throughout its 90 levels, so it never loses its fun and original appeal, and the boss battles are some of the most unique and challenging I've seen in an iPhone app. This is a game that would absolutely only work on the iOS platform, and it's hands-down one of the best games on the App Store. It gets my highest recommendation.
... In truth, I could recommend the game for the congratulatory fist bump performed by Dr. Helsing and Rafton upon the successful completion of a level alone... but the gameplay is truly captivating as well. With over 90 levels and three separate endless modes, Helsing's Fire is an absolute steal of a value. Give it a whirl.
... For 99 cents, Helsing's Fire offers up a good bit of original gameplay that spans 90 different levels. A survival mode and full Crystal integration add some extra fun as well, so the game is well worth the buck.
... While the screenshots and preview video definitely piqued my interest,
Helsing's Fire is even better than I expected. Dark gothic creatures wrapped
up in amusing sequences of Victorian dialogue and, not to be forgotten, that
excellent light and shadow puzzle mechanic. It's one of the most unique
games I've ever played and is a true App Store gem. Surely only a creature
of darkness would let this one slip by them.
... This is where the fire of the title comes in and is the main tool in
Helsing's box of tricks. It's a unique mechanic for a puzzle game that I
have never come across before....
... I love the simple graphic art style, particularly the illustrations of
Helsing and the monsters during cut scenes. But what impresses the most is
the 2D representation of the light, and how it hits static objects and casts
shadows as you drag it around with your finger in realtime. It's a great
effect, and intrical to the success of the puzzles. Helsing's Fire is one of
those budget games that can so easily get lost amongst all the other $0.99
games on the AppStore, but it's one I implore you not to miss.
