If you enjoy physics-based games, Move and Fire is definitely something you’ll want to try. In a nutshell, an orb falls from the top of the screen and you have to move it to collect three yellow orbs before it reaches the floor. Physics comes into play here as you move around various blocks to alter its trajectory. More and more block types are released the further you progress through the game, but each has unique properties to help you complete the level. Once you have set your blocks in place, it’s time to test your arrangement. Click the top right button to release the pink orb and hope it works!
If you’re unsuccessful, the orb leaves a kind of afterglow to show where it went, allowing you to make adjustments accordingly. Sometimes it takes some trial and error, but this makes it ultimately rewarding when you are able to complete the level. When the orb falls, it can land in either 2x or 4x combos (located at the bottom of the screen). The 4x is located right in the centre, which makes it quite tricky to nab.
You get around 100 levels to work through, across 4 different worlds. Levels combine getting trickier with introducing new blocks as you progress. There’s a good mix of straightforward levels that require little tinkering to complete and those which are fiendishly challenging. There’s plenty of word and shape games in the Google Play Store, so this feels quite refreshing. The game is free, but expect adverts and in-app purchases if you want to progress at speed- for example you can pay a few dollars to unlock the additional worlds faster and so on. I haven’t found these IAPs to be overly necessary but it’s an option for people who want it.

The game is certainly fun and completing tricky levels is especially rewarding. I think you need to have an affection for these kinds of games but it makes for wonderfully engaging and casual gameplay.
I have to confess I’m not a massive fan of the genre, but I did find Move and Fire to be particularly addictive, especially as you keep getting more and more block-types to play with. There are online scoreboards to compete on too if you have the inclination… fame surely awaits some of you!
The graphics, while 2D are well designed and look good. Each world has a different theme to it and the physics are sublime and very well implemented into the gameplay.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The sound is very good. I especially liked the music which was kind of catchy and ever-present but it never really becomes annoying- which is perfect for the kind of gameplay Move and Fire features.
