It’s dark and you’re alone amidst the sounds of the forest. Strike up a flame to light your way in this alluring and dangerous world. 

Encounter malevolent flowers, falling leaves and dark rain as the forest seeks imaginative ways to extinguish your flame. Rescue luminous seeds to refuel your light and help you fight the growing darkness. 

Swipe, dodge and burn to stay alive as you move through the obstacles in a dance of fire. 


- Spark up your match to experience the graceful single touch control of seven richly-colored flames 

- Progress through four enchanting worlds as you learn to master the element of fire.

- Rescue seeds to unlock beautiful flames & spells that assist you in the darkness - no iAP :)

- Zen mode, Infinite-play worlds, Game Center leaderboards and achievements with bonus seeds.

- Home brewed by two people and one pencil-top sheep using 5000 matches and gallons of Irish tea.
