  • Summary: This is a puzzle game in which players try to burn as much rope as possible in each level. Some puzzles depict small insects (e.g., beetles, spiders, firebugs) crawling on the ropes; when flames reach them, the bugs sometimes squeak, then disappear amid colorful puffs of smoke.

    Burn the Rope achieves the right combination of elements to make a very simple, addictive, fun and unique puzzler with a lot of replay value. It's let down, however, by its lack of leaderboards and the unshakable feeling that it would be a lot more fun in its originally intended handheld format.

    Give it a look here if you're cash rich, but otherwise absolutely stick with Wickman's iPhone debut.

    Not even close. Burn the Rope is an under-produced, featureless port with uninteresting gameplay. Save your money -- there are many other titles on WiiWare more worthy of your time.
