TGWK’s Review – Burn the City v1.0 (iOS)

Burn the City is a physics based action game from developer JoshOClock. In it, you play as a giant monster whose sole purpose is to destroy cities. Using the monsters flame breath, you’re able to shoot fireballs at nearby buildings, causing them to burn down in flames. Since this is a physics based game, you’ll have to calculate the arch your fireballs will take due to gravity. With tons of levels to play, Burn the City has a lot to offer players.

Control in the game are fairly easy to learn and master. If you’ve played other physics based games of this nature, then you should quickly get the hang of this. You just tap on your monster and drag the cross hairs where you want your fireballs to go. The farther out your drag, the more distance your fireballs will travel. Due to gravity, your fireballs will fly in an arching motion so you must compensate for that. Unlike other games, there doesn’t seem to be a limit to the number of fireballs so you’re able to really have a bit of fun with this and just go crazy with the amount of fireballs you can shoot. The only thing I do not like about the controls in the game is that if you move the camera to just the position that you want, tapping on the monster automatically moves the camera again to its original position, which may not be where you want it to be. I found this a bit annoying.

The graphics in the game are a bit simplistic, but work well in the game. I like how everything isn’t too overly complicated and the design of the monster is quite playful and will appeal to many players.

Burn the City is a unique take on the physics genre. Gameplay wise, it is similar to something like Angry Birds, but it’s different enough where it won’t seem like you’re just playing the same exact game with different art. There’s a lot of variety with the level designs and plenty of challenges. For the price, you’re getting a lot of levels to play as well as being able to play this on both the iPhone and iPad.

Burn the City is available now in the App Store for $0.99. It is a universal app and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
