Product Description
The Floor Is Lava

The Burning Man concept is fine for a big party in the Nevada desert; otherwise, it's best not to take the term literally. Keep this in mind as you play The Floor Is Lava, a red-hot 3D puzzle game for your Android device.

In The Floor Is Lava, your job is to cross a series of floor tiles and cause them to fall into the bubbling lava below. But it's not as simple as you might think! Unless you want to plummet into the lava, too, you'll need to be clever of mind and fleet of foot.

The Floor Is Lava
Cross the tiles or face a fiery demise
Don't Look Down

Numbered tiles must be crossed multiple times in order to make them fall, and walls between tiles are impassable and must be navigated around. Choose your path carefully, because if you end up trapped, you're toast.

Oh, one more thing. If you take too long to clear a level, then the lava will slowly begin to rise until it engulfs both the tiles and yourself. So you'd better hotfoot it!

At the end of each level, you'll be rewarded with sparkling gems that fall from above. Catch them for extra points (and take a breath before facing the next fiery challenge).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game, great update May 27, 2012
The game is fun and I recommend trying it but the real draw here is a company that listened to the feedback from consumers and removed unneeded permissions and openfeint. I'd love to see more companies review their permissions and the software their introducing onto their users devices.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clever maze game but needs improvement. May 27, 2012
By Felix
Verified Purchase
It's an interesting puzzle game which essentially is a maze puzzle. You have to swipe your fingers across tiles to make them fall into the lava ironically. I'd figure that you'd have to build floors to escape the lava pit, but I digress. Some tiles are numbered meaning you have to swipe over that tile the number of times shown. Walls are also added to tiles to increase difficulty. Graphics are good and the music is too, though slightly depressing at the menu screen. The control of the game needs to be improved which is the main reason for getting 3 stars. I'd have to move my finger really slow or have to move back and reswipe. In a game like this, obviously it's important to be able to swipe quickly and accurately. Lastly, the replay value of the game medium to low. This game is decent but I can't see paying for it. Good choice as FAOTD though. HTC Thunderbolt stock rooted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original, challenging and well done puzzle May 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
'Floor Is Lava' is one of those few 1-5% made for phones/tablets games that's both well done and original. It therefore deserves its 5 stars.

- Rewards careful planning - you walk the chain of tiles beginning from a specific point but you only walk straight or make 90-degree turns but certain tiles must be touched ore than once to fall and some turns are blocked by walls.
- Rewards quick thinking - floor drops closer to the lava as you play and you eventually burn.
- There is also some quick reflexes component where you get extra points if you catch falling gems (yes... I know, 'gets').

Anyone into puzzles may want give it a try because, besides being well implemented - high res graphics, okay music and sound effects, responding well to touch - it's 'different' and therefore interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A basic, yet fun game May 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game is a cross-the-room type of game, where you have to go over every tile by dragging your finger over it to clear the level.
It's simple, but is entertaining... if you like that sort of game. The graphics are a bit crude, true, but I can spend some time playing it. There's some room efflorescence improvement, but overall it's a well-rounded game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of game play May 27, 2012
By Melva

I enjoyed this and apparently went as far as I could in about 5 minutes. You start all over from the beginning after completing and there's no way to see your high score. I would enjoy longer game play. Played smooth on kindle fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars game is fun May 27, 2012

this game is fun, but the intro music is soft piano music, and i actually enjoyed it more than the game itself. The music is soothing, and relaxing....i could fall asleep listening to it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not well designed May 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
The graphics are good and the method of play needs no introduction. But there are two glaring issues that caused me to quickly uninstall.

1) There is no pause between gems dropping and the next puzzle that appears on the same screen real estate. This means that half the time you end up selecting tiles for play before you have even seen the puzzle.

2) There is no apparent means to start the game past the point of your last success. This means the user starts over again with simple puzzles and repeat all the puzzles previously completed.

I love puzzles, but I didn't find this one worthy of a second run through.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun but not the best
I like this game and you should probably try it but it kind of gets boring after a while compared to other games. Good if you like puzzles.

I am determined to beat this game, It is unpredictable. I love it. I will say I suggest having a screen protector if you are going to play it.
