The leprechaun told me to burn things, let’s see if this game will appease him.
Little Inferno is a game that plays a lot like free to play games on mobile, using drag and drop placement of objects, time based waits and rewards for doing things properly. You place objects in a fireplace and burn them. That’s the whole gist of the game.
The game actually has a story, surprisingly enough. You obtain your Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace, burn through objects, and receive letters from a mysterious stranger who is interested in the mysteries of the fireplace. She goes on to discover some of them, and passes hints on to you. The story is pretty entertaining, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Overall, I’d say Little Inferno gets a half of a grilled cheese rating. It’s dark, satirical, and makes a good joke about the kind of games it models itself after, but that’s just it: it is a joke. It leaves a mark on you and makes you want to play it again, but it can quickly lose appeal if played too often. However, I do highly recommend playing it.
