Available on:Nintendo SwitchMar 16, 2017

Developer: Tomorrow Corporation

Genre: Puzzle

"A beautiful masterpiece", "inventive, moving and unrelentingly funny", "a deft statement on games and how we play them" — Little Inferno is an unusual game filled with surprise and wonder, and even better the less you know about it before playing! Congratulations on your new Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace! Throw your toys into your fire, and play with them as they burn. Stay warm in there. It's getting cold outside! Burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies. An adventure that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace — about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall. From the creators of World of Goo and Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure. Multiple nominee in the Independent Games Festival for the Grand Prize, Nuovo Award, and Technical Excellence, with honorable mentions in Best Design and Best Audio. 100% indie — made by 3 guys, no office, no publishers, no funding.

Maybe the $10 price tag is a bit much for a now five year old game (especially one that has been on sale), but if you like pondering your own enjoyment of gaming and want to do it both on the go and at home, this version offers the opportunity.

Little Inferno turns out to be much deeper than what a superficial view could suggest. Pity that the game's length and selling price are disproportionate to its age and presence in other platforms.

The Switch version of Little Inferno is a worthy update, adding two-player support as well as portability; it's also one of the Switch's most versatile titles, working in handheld mode with the console's touch screen, as well as in tabletop mode and TV mode with the option of playing in either single- or two-player, with each using a single Joy-Con as a pointer.Like other Tomorrow Corporation games, Little Inferno is both dark and cute at the same time. If the concept appeals to you it's a title still worth your time, especially at its modest asking price.
