When you are trapped in the dark, keeping what little light you have alive quickly becomes your top priority. It is this fear that Pierre Aclement's Primal Flame capitalises on.
To begin the game, you strike a match with a swipe of the screen. This single flame is all you have to light the stylish, silhouetted world. Unfortunately for you and your peace of mind, it seems everything in this eerie forest is determined to snuff it out.
Flowers are constantly reaching out to smother your light. The only way to stop the advancing plant life is to dodge past their clawing appendages, and kill them by slicing at their stalks.
Collecting seeds from the darkened world increases the strength of your fire. Doing so can keep the flame burning even when grabbed, and even improve its pruning abilities.
You can seek out Primal Flame's solitary light on the App Store now for £1.99 / $2.99.
