Gentle storytelling and challenging puzzles on an island of intrigue.

An atmospheric world with deep, absorbing puzzles, Bonfire Peaks is thoughtful and charming-but without establishing its tricks, it risks leaving less fluent puzzlers behind.

Bonfire Peaks has you burning memories in a tricky puzzler that has real heart and soul at its molten core.

A deeply thoughtful, eminently accessible and cleverly crafted bite-sized puzzler, Bonfire Peaks has more subtle emotion, charm and smile-cracking ingenuity than most of the games that have released this year. If you want to hone your logical senses and embolden your spirit concurrently then Bonfire Peaks is certainly one summit worth conquering.

Even if the controls sometimes just make you wanna scream, Bonfire Peaks is a nice and small puzzle game worth playing. Its compact diorama levels are brilliantly engineered, using small spaces to test the player's cleverness. Voxel graphics, more that just being nostalgic, help the game in recreating the right atmosphere of old adventure games like the original Tomb Raider.

Burn it. Burn it all! Your belongings, that is. New puzzler Bonfire Peaks sees you navigating dozens of levels to reduce your possessions to ash. Don’t let the eye-catching voxel art deceive you, though: this is one rock-hard game.

While the puzzling itself racks your brain adequately, if frustratingly, the real pull of Bonfire Peaks is its ability to make you feel personal nostalgia through mementos—the memories that shaped you, both happy and sad. Topping it off with pleasant voxel pixel art and a rousing soundtrack, the game offers a distinctly unique experience.

Bonfire Peaks tries a little too hard to make relatively simple concepts seem deep and meaningful. The narrative of the unknown man is too laconic to be engaging in the long run. The gameplay, while delivering brilliant moments of discovery and achievement, is too repetitive. The two only connect in a meaningful way because of their lack of complexity.
