The graphic style of Monument Valley ended up flooding other titles that didn't have to be related to puzzle games. We saw that style at Alto’s Odissey and Adventure, for example; and also in a game that are in tests for our system after sweeping iOS: The bonfire: Abandoned lands.
Flat colors with gradients on the edges, minimalism pushed to the limit, fluid animations that marry the peace and calm that transpires the game … And a simple control mode that does not tarnish the enormous amount of actions we can perform. The premise is simple: survive. With a question: how much can you endure?
The bonfire: Abandoned Lands is a survival game of clicker mechanics and minimalist graphics
We arrive at an inhospitable terrain where there is only one cabin, a river, a nearby cave, trees and little else. What to do? It is what you have to decide. Start by cutting down trees to get wood, defend yourself from the wolves and beasts that will try to devour you, welcome other individuals and turn them into workers… In short: you must evolve based on taking simple actions; that get complicated as the game progresses.
The mechanics are simple: choose actions and defend against enemies by repeatedly pressing the buttons. Of course, as survival progresses the existence is complicated; until we have an entire village that will not only work for us, we must also distribute the tasks so that everything is kept in order and safe. It is surprisingly surprising how much the experience evolves from the simple mechanics of pressing buttons.
The Bonfire: Abandoned Lands It is undergoing tests, but it does not involve inconvenience in the phones. It is the complete game, so you have a chance to try it before it costs money. The tests will end on August 7, date on which only those who have bought it can continue playing. Its cost will be 3.99 euros; that you can pay now in the form of in-app purchase.
Delicious for the eyes, without major control complications, difficult to evolve … and something short, maybe it's your worst inconvenience. It is translated into Spanish and, as we said, you can try it for free until August 7.
