    You can find screenshots and a detailed description of the game on the Arctopia web site at http://arctopia.robotocracy.com/ .

    In each level of Arctopia, your goal is to strategically use blocks of ice to extinguish all of the sinister eyebrowed flames that menace the level. Unfortunately, this is rarely straightforward, as fires may be inconveniently placed, blocked by burning oil barrels, or defended by blockades of ice.

    You can create and destroy ice, but only below your current position, so thinking ahead is mandatory. . . and there are many traps for the unwary!

    Arctopia features 120 levels across 12 chapters of increasing difficulty. The earliest levels will only take a minute to solve, but the later ones will be nearly impossible unless you have figured out every trick in the game.

    (Note that if you find early levels too easy (or you find a particular level too frustrating!), you can always skip to a different level and come back later.)

    The number of moves taken for your best solution is saved for each level, so you can strive for maximum efficiency if you so desire.

    The intro levels are (skippable) tutorial stages, so don't worry about learning the basics of the game.

    Good luck!

    I love that players can play any of the 130 levels in the entire game right from the start, and I used that feature on a couple of occasions when a particular level had me stumped.

    For most people, the game is a really enjoyable pick-up-and-play little app that will likely give those who download it something to do for a long time.
