Product Description

"Amazingly designed." - The Appera.com

"The Inferno' – A Hellishly Good Action-Puzzler" - TouchArcade

"The graphics in this game are simply amazing... The gameplay is quite unique to say the least... The Inferno is one hell of a good action puzzler." - Examiner

"The Inferno is MUCH better than simple Frogger... The game is so professionally done that it's clearly not average." - meandmydroid

"Frogger meets The World’s Hardest Game. And, with one hundred and eleven levels and two different endings depending on how long you take to complete the game, it appears that The Inferno has a lot to offer." - Pocket Gamer UK

"The variety is fantastic....The Inferno promises challenging puzzle play, but the carefully crafted presentation makes it enormously attractive." - Pocket Gamer

"The Fire Pits levels are AMAZING!! The intense, relentless level designs...Some of the later levels are REALLY intense and epic..." - Radim, TouchArcade Forum

"The puzzles overall feel fresh, and when I have to time my movements it feels almost like Super Mario Bros in intensity." - Touchgen

Great puzzle game. Your goal is to progress through the levels of hell in order to rescue your girlfriend. Each level is a maze where you rescue glowing orbs that represent lost souls. As Dante, you are led by Virgil through the different stages in order to avoid demons and other evil entities to the ending portals of each screen. I like the challenge of getting across the falling tiles that reappear.

I did not find any truly awful permissions and appreciate that greatly. The game plays well, except for one thing. I really don't like the way the control "arrows" you press to move overlap the game grid. There have been some times when I'm trying to move around the board but the arrows block my view. It does not happen all the time, but it is annoying so I removed a star for game play.

This app is worth the purchase if you enjoy puzzle games such as "World's Hardest Game" or Quell, you will probably like the game mechanics of Dante: The Inferno. The graphics are great, the game is challenging but not impossible, and the storyline makes for a great backdrop for the puzzles. The idea of incorporating the levels of Hell from Dante's Inferno is a great idea. If you see this as a FAOTD, definitely get it for ages 14+ (the game can be scary to little kids, even though it states it is for all ages), and if you enjoy puzzle games, it is even worth the price if you don't see it as a FAOTD.

This app was previously offered on Oct 6, 2012, but I was between Fires at the time and didn't pick it up. So I did today.

This, I guess, would be considered a variation on a platform game. The game is built against the backdrop of Dante's Inferno. You have to move "Dante" around a maze collecting lost souls (glowing orbs). Once you've collected all the souls, the exit for that stage becomes accessible. There is a time limit to finishing a level which has individual stages. You have to avoid various things such as monsters and falling sidewalks in the early levels. Your ultimage goal is to rescue Beatrice.

There are dialog panels telling the story that you can read a panel at a time or skip by tapping outside the dialog panel.

Controls are a little touchy. You have the option of a four headed arrow controllable by either the left or right hand, or two sets of arrows, an up-down set and a left-right set that you can control with both thumbs. I preferred the two sets of arrows; I thought they were more intuitive.

I thought it was a fun little game. Note many reviews are at least two years old; I think the developers changed things based on the earlier feedback.

I'll give this 4 stars--minus one star because the controls are not optimal and the graphics for the actual game play are sort of underwhelming compared to the storyline graphics and backgrounds.

My time with Dante: The Inferno was both pleasant and frustrating. This is the only game that I have played so far that made me both like and hate it.

I liked the graphics and sound, but HATED the controls. I liked the fact that there are no permissions, but hated the CONSTANT rate begging. I really liked the level design, but hated the lame attempt at the story (and the fact that you can't just turn it off).

With that little rant out of the way, lets move on to the review:

The Good:

- Pleasing, yet simple graphics. Just take a look at some of the screenshots, the game looks great.

- Addicting top down puzzler game play, with some BRUTALLY difficult levels.

- Good music/sound and effects.

- NO PERMISSIONS (at the time of this review).

- Great level design (although a bit repetitive in places).

- Achievements.

The Bad:

- Constant rate begging. Every few levels a pop up will ask you to rate this app. There is no "no" option, just "Yes" or "Later".

- Lame story with no way to turn it off. You can chose to skip the text on a PER LEVEL basis. Sure would be nice to have an option to disable this drivel.

The Ugly:

- Terrible, jerky controls that almost ruin the game. Yes, they really are that bad. It actually seems like the game is lagging and I found out that it is much easier to quickly tap them than count on the darn things working properly as you glide across them.

Score:
Game: 3/5 (if the controls are fixed and the rate begging removed, I will bump it up to a 5).

Diablo style game with epic but repetitive music and a great story line based on Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. You as Dante must traverse the levels of Hell, beginning in Limbo to find and save the soul of Beatrice, your lover with the aid of Virgil your tour guide and helper. In this maze style game you will encounter classic obstacles like bricks disintegrating below you feet, ghosts, bats, fireballs, traps and other dangers which you must avoid while you collect the spirits of dead souls you find along the way in order to pass from one level to the next. (5 Circles in this game with 121 levels, not the normal 9 Circles of Hell)

This is exactly the genre of games I love to play, but alas the controls are not as good as I would have liked. Although you can choose from 3 different styles/positions of arrows for on screen movement they were just OK because movement was pretty choppy and not smooth. The best I think was the separated arrows for horizontal and vertical movement as they were positioned one to the left and one to the right and covered over less of the screen. The game requires that you carefully plan your moves to avoid baddies and wait for disintegrating bricks to regenerate or hazards to be removed. Sometimes you must move very quickly and hide in a safe place while enemies pass. There are also various power-ups you come across to help you on your way. All great stuff if only you felt like you had a bit more solid control over Dante's movements.

If you are young and have a great deal of patience you may really enjoy this. I myself am very spoiled by playing games like this on consoles and a computer.

Really fun game. Great puzzles and level design. As others have stated, the story is pretty lame, but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Price tag is a little high. $3. Read more

This is a unique game that can be frustratingly addictive. I also like the funny comments made between the levels. I would recommend this game.
