Big Blue Bubble 's Burn The Rope (released in December, 2010) has been nominated for three Canadian Video Game Awards: Best Game on the Go, Best Game Design and Best Visual Arts.
The hugely popular iOS game Burn The Rope is a gravity-based puzzle that requires players to burn ropes in different entanglements. The catch is ropes can only burn upwards. This leaves gamers tilting and turning to keep the flame alive.
With over 60 high profile games in its portfolio, Big Blue Bubble is one of Canada’s leading video game developers. Each of the company’s three divisions (Mobile, Console and Casual) is dedicated to making the best possible games by combining innovative designers with top calibre artists and industry leading programmers.
Big Blue Bubble is a midsized employer and a key player in London's digital media sector.
Description: In Burn The Rope users have the freedom to set fire without any fire hazard or need for a fire extinguisher. The game involves a mix of strategic planning, thinking ahead, coordination and the ability to stay in deep focus. Users have to feed the fire and burn as much rope as they can in each level to progress.
The challenge is that fire only burns upwards, leaving players to tilt and turn their iPhones to keep the flame alive.
The game features 80 devilishly tricky levels with polished graphics and mesmerizing fire effects. Bugs that crawl along the rope spice things up demonstrating different reactions to the flame from level to level. Ants change the colour of the flame so that users could burn different colored ropes, and the spider shoots out a web bridge providing access to the parts of the level that were beyond players’ reach before.
