Burn The Rope Available At Macgamestore
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Macgamestore has added Big Blue Bubble's Burn The Rope to its list of downloadable game titles. The unique puzzle title challenges players to burn as much rope as possible on each level, rotating the puzzle board to keep the flame alive.

From the team that brought you Thumpies –‘game that reinvented the rhythm genre’; here comes one of the most original games this year. Burn the Rope is a unique game for the pyro in all of us. All you have to do is feed the fire!

Burn the Rope is a challenging game where you try to burn as much rope as you can in each level. There’s a catch! The fire only burns upwards, leaving you to tilt and turn the puzzle to keep your flame alive!

As you progress through the levels, you’ll encounter bugs crawling along the rope. Different bugs have different reactions to the flame. For example, the ant changes the color of the flame so you can burn different colored ropes, and the spider shoots out a web bridge so you can access parts of the level that you could not before.

Burn the Rope is incredibly fun and addictive. You will actually feel like you’re burning a rope, yet there’s no need for a fire extinguisher!


  • 112 exciting levels with more coming soon!
  • Incredibly fun and addictive!
  • Unique controls!
  • Beautiful graphics and cool fire effects!
  • Easy to learn, hard to master!
  • Fun for the whole family!
Burn The Rope costs $6.99 (USD) and requires OS X 10.6 or higher.

Avadon: The Black Fortress Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Digitally Downloaded has posted a new review of Spiderweb Software's Avadon: The Black Fortress. The first chapter of a new saga, the game puts players in the role of a spy and warrior tasked to defend the homeland from its many enemies. The game features four different character classes, dozens of sidequests, hundreds of items to discover, and many different possible endings. DD gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

For the most part, though, this is a game about exploring deep and dark dungeons and killing stuff. There’s a decent loot system, but in yet another throwback to the bygone eras of gaming, there’s encumbrance. Put on too much armour, and you’ll be an impenetrable tank, but you’ll also move nowhere.

Assuming you are equipped lightly enough, eventually you’ll run into some battles, and it’s an addictive, if slightly simple experience. Avadon is turn based, and everyone moves about in a grid formation. There’s a handful of spells and special attacks to choose between, but otherwise combat flow is the “you hit, now I hit” variety. You can build a reasonably-sized team of miscreants and heroes, and each has a unique role to play in the game, but if you’ve ever played an RPG before, you’ll know you’ll need a healer, a fighter, a thief and a mage as a base ‘unit.’
