This game is akin to the World's Hardest Game in a Diablo setting.

Honestly, that first review calling this a Diablo style game, which I glanced at before downloading, really got my hopes up. And then sent those hopes to the circle of Not Even Close. DANTE is a maze puzzler as you race against a clock like a divinely inspired Frogger through labyrinths, traps, spirits, teleports, and dying... repeatedly. Fortunately there is no limit to your deaths, just a counter to taunt you as you creep into triple digits and the loss of precious, dwindling time.
Graphics are blocky, perhaps in line with the first DIABLO's graphics (and thus the comparison?), the control's twitchy and cumbersome (I found the separated left and right the easiest for me), and the quick realization that this wasn't even remotely what I expected kind of let me down... but after 12 levels, I found myself really hooked. Unexpected, but I am having fun with this one! There is a neat aspect where you can replay a previous level, beat your best time, and get that time added to your time remaining to save Beatrice. I replayed level one and got 1 second added! Wooo! LOL
Completely permission free with ZERO code libraries, there is a couple More Game ads (Main Menu and Pause Menu) and one RATE US push, which I found extremely ironic when it took me to the Google Play Store to rate it (I just backed out of it, and that was that). Tiny game in terms of size, small foot print, large graphics that will do well on phones, if not the controls, and to exit, you hit the [Pause] up top and then [Exit to Main Menu]. From there, hit your back-key to prompt a [Quit] that exits cleanly. The next time you open the game, it will take you directly where you left off.
All in all, the various mediocre hits would kick this as a three star game, but I cannot help but give it four as I do find it engaging in spite of the controls and otherwise bland execution. There isn't any gore or any other intense scenes one may possibly expect, but a rather clean (and loose) rendition of Dante's literary vision. This one is going to boil down to purely personal taste.
I have added a photo of the Kindle Fire permissions page and as you can see no permissions are listed or activated.
You have to collect all of the souls in the level to open the gate and exit. As soon as you collect the souls you have to move quickly to reach the gate. You are racing against a timer which is in the upper RH corner and your death counter is in the upper LH corner. (Watch it quickly go up) Your mission is to save Beatrice who has been condemned to hell for having an affair with you while married.
There is a pause button in the top center of the screen and there is a special spot in the maze where if you pass it then your progress in that level is saved. You go through the story and the discussion between Dante and Virgil about why you have entered the inferno. I hate that every other screen it asks you if you want to skip the text and the story. Even if you are interested in hearing the story the pop up message bothers me so much that it makes you want to stop reading and skip them.
You have to find your way through the mazes in the levels of hell and figure out how to get past various types of demons and obstacles. You have to collect all of the lost souls in the level to unlock the exits gate. Your face ghosts demons, disintegrating floor tiles and shooting arrows (I hate these). There are a few areas in the maze to hide but it is relentless to beat each level.
There are four circles of hell and you have to go through each level with total 121. You have to come face to face with the Minotaur, Cerberus, Medusa, and Lucifer who are the bosses of each level. The graphics in each level are very good considering the game's size is not that big.
If you touch the Kindle Fire menu button and the touch it again it takes you to a menu screen.

What I like:
The graphics are pretty good and the sound is also good but I turned the music off after playing for a while. It gets repetitive. The maze is detailed and adding the puzzle concept into it makes it interesting. The attention to detail is good and I like how quickly the game changes obstacles as it makes the game more fun and challenging.
I can find no permissions turned on in the game even though it lists five on the Amazon product description.
What I don't like:
The pop up messages the constantly ask if you want to skip the text. They should ask only once per level and then not ask again in the same level.
While the controls are not bad it is always difficult to move through a maze in jerky steps and racing a clock while you face enemies that fluidly move thought the maze at a much faster speed.
Your view of the maze is limited and you cannot see the entire level you are in and have to escape. It is difficult to plot a strategy if you don't know where the objective is. There is no pan or zoom function and this makes the game more difficult than it really has to be.
This is a good game and with the permissions not turned on I rate it five stars. Game play was fun but adequately difficult (ha, ha, you will get frustrated on some levels) and I liked the game. Over all it is worth playing and buying as long as the permissions are off and stay off.
Size is 628 KB in the application memory and 6.269MB are stored in the memory reserved for books and your data.
No applications are installed in the Kindle Fire which is odd since 5 are listed on the Amazon product description.
Dante: The Inferno is a decent game whose description creates unrealistic expectations. Each level is like a level of Frogger, hopping around the screen, collecting objects, dodging enemies, and reaching the ending as fast as you. Many of the levels make for a great challenge in this vein, and the graphics are fairly disturbing. The controls can be a bit annoying, but their no different from any similar game.
However, let me note that there are no 'boss battles', just some in game dialogue that does nothing then create a meaningless plot. This is just a puzzle/timing game.
This COULD be a really solid game. The Gameplay is basically Chip's Challenge with some edgier (comparatively) graphics and some storyboard dialogue to provide some supporting plot line, so excellent ranking on that end of things. If the controls weren't so flawed, the difficulty would only be moderate enough to not be beyond the casual gamer, but the time challenge and other achievements offer enough extra challenge for those with higher skill level, that that passes with flying colors too. That said, the controls are flawed at a software level. The on screen arrows gave me so much of a hassle that I hooked up my moga gamepad just on the off chance there was some support, which surprisingly, there was! (worth an extra star, hence the 2 star rating instead of just 1) Unfortunately, this only made it even more obvious that it was not the touch screen input that had been screwing up my controls, but the game itself that was over-registering button presses or juttering the movement. I'm going to come back to this game in a month. If the devs are willing to put into the effort to fix the controls, this game will have a minimum of 4 stars in my book.
