    Burn the Rope may seem inspired by Cut the Rope, but they are definitely different games. This is much harder, which may turn off recreational gamers just seeking a few fleeting minutes of fun.

    Conceptually, Burn the Rope sounds fairly fun, but it does get fairly tedious as the game goes on.

    Burn the Rope is an original and taxing accelerometer-driven puzzler, though its flames are dampened slightly by a lack of adequate feedback.

    There's plenty of content to play through, with 80 levels currently in the game and more coming in updates. Burn the Rope is definitely worth a look if you're interested in a unique puzzle game, and if you aren't afraid to spin your device around in public.

    Aside from some slight control issues and an annoying theme song, Burn The Rope has just about everything you could ask for when it comes to pick-up-and-play puzzle games. It's cute, simple to play, and full of plenty of challenging stages. And it's the only way to burn ants without looking like you're crazy.

    If you aren't scared or ashamed of turning your iPhone around while in public, then this is a definite must buy.

    Whereas popular rope-based puzzlers typically involve covering specific areas with rope or connecting preset points with a minimal amount of twine, Burn The Rope focuses on eliminating the rope completely.

    It all adds up to one hectic puzzle game that requires some expert timing in later levels in order to keep all the flames burning.
