App Description

In Arch Fiery, it's OK to play with fire!



THE STORY:

Take control of a futuristic military weapon — a miniaturized star. The "Arch Fiery" is an advanced prototype. It was designed to protect humanity from the AI threat. But during a routine systems test, something went astray. The fiery orb crash landed into a distant forest. Propulsion systems have been damaged. The Arch Fiery can no longer fly. It can only jump.



FEATURES:

  • Retina Display Graphics
  • Two control types (On-Screen or Accelerometer)
  • Designed to be fun for casual or advanced players
  • Designed to be pretty — nice particle effects
  • Designed to be family friendly — suitable for all ages



HOW TO PLAY:

Each level is an obstacle course. Guide the fireball to the goal by navigating through the hazards as quickly as possible. If the fireball hits a hazard, it becomes damaged and will shrink. Collect power-ups to increase the size of the fireball.

If you're using accelerometer controls, tilt your iOS device to make the fireball move in that direction. Touch the screen to jump. If the fireball is touching an adjacent wall, a wall-jump can be performed. Some objects can be moved. If you don't want to use the accelerometer, you can activate the on-screen controls from the pause menu.

Points are awarded at the end of the level, based on stars collected, power and time. If a level is locked, it can be unlocked by completing the preceding level. Progress is automatically saved, so you can play through the game on your own schedule.

You can control the sound and music volume from the pause menu. A third slider is for controlling the amount of particles. To see your cumulative score for a set of levels, you can access the corresponding Game Center Leaderboard. These buttons are on the home screen. Game Center can be enabled or disabled from the home screen.



NOTICE ABOUT HALLOWEEN:

This app is time sensitive. Something festive happens during the second-half of October to celebrate the holiday. And in general, "The Burnt Forest" is a great match for the season.



FEEDBACK:

If you like this game, and you would like to see more levels, you can say so in the comments section. If there are lots of great reviews and encouraging words, the more likely this game will be expanded. This app has been thoroughly tested. But if you see a technical issue, you don't have to freak out. Instead, you can use the support link (which leads to the Photics.com contact form) to report a problem with the app.
