Burn the Rope Worlds (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Burn the Rope was a popular puzzle game inspired by Cut the Rope and developed by Big Blue Bubble. Now, you can have more of the iPhone-flipping action with a brand new sequel in Burn the Rope: Worlds. In this game, fire travels along a rope and your goal is to keep it burning as long as possible without dying out. Turning your iPhone allows the fire to continue to burn, though pesky bugs and other distractions attempt to ruin your progress and your score. Burn the Rope Worlds has four different settings including Space, Mechanical, Jungle, and Fantasy.

This new sequel debuts a mini-game called Endless Burn, in which you attempt to burn as many bugs as possible  without running into your burn trail. There are over 100 levels and a daily level that offers tons of content to play through without losing interest. Multiple difficulty settings allow players of all ages and skill levels to enjoy the fun. Definitely consider buying Burn the Rope Worlds if you were a fan of the first game in the series.
