Description

Arctopia is a turn-based puzzle solving game in the style of the classic puzzle games from the 80s.

You can find a screenshots, solutions, a lite version, 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!

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!

Solomon's Key 2 (Fire n Ice) was better

:
I've remember playing this same game, Fire n Ice, for the NES, but this game doesn't recreate that charm the old game did. The programmer did not add a level editor or chip tune music, or really anything that would bring out a retro feel to this game.

I was hoping for more of a challenge, and more of an 8-bit look.

3/5 stars

Good passtime, needs more work

:
This has the feel of those old Microsoft games (remember chip's challenge?), but the puzzles in the free version aren't creative enough to hold my interest. It needs puzzles with more than just one straightforward solution. The sound and graphics are very minimal, but the interface could really use more work - it's not possible to see what levels you need to find a better solution for.
