2. Burn the Rope Worlds
Burn The Rope WORLDS is FREE for a limited time. Make sure you download our award winning title “My Singing Monsters” (FREE as well)!
Burn the Rope: Worlds lights up your iPhone all over again with 100 brand-new levels, four different themed worlds including Jungle, Mechanical, Fantasy and Space; and an exciting brand new mini-game called Endless Burn.
Like the original Burn the Rope, the goal is to burn as much rope as possible without letting the flames burn out. Flames only burn upwards and the phone must be rotated in order to keep the flames going. Along the way different types of bugs crawling along the rope can help or hinder players as they try to solve each puzzle.
Burn the Rope: Worlds’ Endless Burn is a brand new mini-game where the player tries to collect as many bugs as possible — the catch is that as the player collects bugs their flame trail gets longer, and if they run into the flame trail the round is over! Endless Burn features 3 different levels of difficulty so players of all skill levels can share in the fun.
•100 brand new levels (+hundreds more through daily puzzle)
•Four new worlds!
•Incredibly fun new mini-game Endless Burn!
•New Puzzles updated daily!
•Casual mode for a more relaxed session!
