Pyrotouch for iOS Brings Fireworks To Your Device

I love fireworks, and who doesn’t  They light up the sky on those special events, and provide an awesome show for some time. We can always look forward to them on Halloween, Canada Day, and those other special times. This app called PyroTouch for iOS, allows you to create your own firework show on your device, minus the serious dangers of actual fireworks. I’m always on the lookout for great iOS games. While some are just plain bad, some are absolutely stunning. This app PyroTouch is a truly awesome app.

This app is developed by a Vancouver app company Harakoa. The app was launched earlier this summer, and the app has been a hit from its users.

The purpose of the game is to create fireworks on your skyline from the actions provided. Each firework is represented by a symbol within a circle. When your firework reaches the apex, the symbol will appear. For example, the symbols I’ve seen so far are a dot and a dashed line.  A dot would represent tapping the dot, and a dotted line would represent swiping across the screen. The gameplay starts off easy, but as you progress in the game, more symbols will appear, making it harder to get every firework.

Later on through the game, you are given the task to collect stars. It’s an additional action, and trust me, it’s not easy at first. The stars will only appear for a split second, so you have to be fast in order to collect them. Since they appear later on in the game, you can also go back to previous levels to collect your stars.

The goal is to keep your audience happy. Each time you get a firework, blue happy faces will show up on the screen. Make sure to tap those happy faces to gain valuable points, and to pass the level. If you miss fireworks, a red sad face will show up. If you tap it, you’re reducing how happy the crowd is. If they’re not happy, you don’t pass the level. You will start in Vancouver, but once you move along in the game, you have the option to do fireworks in other cities, such as New York. However, you will have to unlock these with the points you gain. There is an option to buy points with your iTunes account, but unlocking them with your points is more fun and challenging.

I do have a few small complaints about the app. My biggest complaint is that this app does not have an iPad native version. The app works on the iPhone and the iPod Touch, but on the iPad, you’ll have to use the 2X option to expand the app. It’s a small pain, but making this iPad native, or even making an iPad HD version of the app would be ideal. There should also be an Android version of the app I believe. Making the app for both iOS and Android seems to make sense in order to help a mobile app gain exposure. My next complaint is about the gold stars. Pressing on the stars can be a bit hard at times, especially while concentrating on doing the prescribed actions. Pressing on the stars are a bit sensitive also, and it seems that you have to press almost exactly in the middle of the star in order for it to register.

Here are some more pictures of gameplay:

The gameplay overall is quite good, providing a challenge to the user. The graphics are good, and the soundtrack that accompanies the app works. However, this app desperately needs an iPad native version of the game, which would be good to give more exposure to many more users. I totally recommend this app, and is one of my favourite apps I’ve reviewed this year. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
