The Last Campfire is one of those games brimming with innocence and hope, so rare today. It is found in Apple Arcade, one of those gems that you have to find and play as soon as possible. Because its moving story is a story not to be missed.
An embers that solves puzzles to save other lost souls
Where the embers are lost, Ember runs into those in need of help. Tissue beings whose “soul” is an embers are trapped in this mysterious realm. By helping them, our protagonist will be able to move forward in the story, sending the embers back to his interior.
Through three major scenarios, Ember will move around and help those in need of a helping hand. Giant frogs that are hungry and carry you from place to place. Birds that steal an essential key
When we find a dead embers, we can enter the puzzle that frees its soul and brings it back on its way. Some are very simple, like pushing blocks to cover the holes and fit through. Others require coordinating every movement to be able to continue in the right direction.
Sometimes we will face the most ingenious little obstacles. Carry a torch through a pulley system to avoid a trap that blows air and turns it off is one of them. These are puzzles that are difficult enough to keep you entertained, without being an impressive stage.
A children’s story full of the best puzzles
The narrator who tells us about Ember’s adventures does it in English, with a certain foreign accent. A child’s voice that puts us very well in a situation and contribute to a dreamlike environment
The stranger was trapped, motionless in a labyrinth.
All of this makes us think that we are in fact immersed in a children’s story. One of the magical, incredible beings and a purpose to help others move forward. A tale in the form of a game for iPhone and iPad.
In the game we will collect tools that will be used occasionally to unlock obstacles or advance in the story
When it comes to puzzles, the normal thing is for a game like this to pick a type and get the most out of it. In the last campfire we will see a great variety, with different twists of the screw that keep them entertained. You’ll never get to a point where you find yourself saying “oh, not that yet”.
The game is not entirely linear, but has a slightly open world. We can come and go to a certain extent, explore environments, find your hidden treasures and talk to the characters again. But in the end, we will still have to solve puzzles to be able to advance further in the game.
The Last Campfire is a game that can last 6 or 8 hours of entertainment. It’s present in Apple Arcade, so we can play it from iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
