Quirky App Of The Day: Beware Burning Bridges In Fire Baby Bully Ice Baby

June 14, 2013

Do you remember those logic puzzles that require you to draw a picture without lifting your pencil or using the same line twice? Well, Fire Baby Bully Ice Baby is an app designed on the same premise as those puzzles. Don’t worry if you’ve never drawn those pictures. You’ll still have fun with the app.

Each level presents you with a system of land bridges that have a single gem on every beam. Your goal is to walk across every bridge to collect these gems. What does this have to do with those drawings I mentioned? Well, you’re not the only one walking along those bridges.

As soon as you make a move, Fire Baby walks right behind you, burning the bridge that you just collected a gem from. You can’t go back the way you came in this puzzle game. You have to choose a route that allows you to collect all the gems without using the same bridge twice.

There’s also a timer that starts after Fire Baby burns the bridge. This timer marks how long you have before you need to make a move. If you stand still for too long, Fire Baby will come after you, and you’ll lose the game.

This game is admittedly short. There are only 10 levels. However, it’s completely free. There aren’t any in-app purchases to worry about. So, while your fun might be short-lived with this app, there’s still no harm in trying it out. It’s a great brain teaser.

I personally love puzzle apps that make me sit down and think before I go on to make a move. Because of the timer in this game, it’s especially important to plan ahead. This game is not only challenging for adults, but kids would probably enjoy it as well. In fact, I’m sure there are some kids that could figure out these puzzles faster than I could.

Fire Baby Bully Ice Baby is a universal app, and it’s available in the App Store for FREE!
