Campfire Cooking is a puzzle game about relaxing moments in nature, as you prepare meals over a warm fire. Discover the joy of cooking on a stick and test your problem-solving skills with some challenging campfire puzzles! The latest creation from Layton Hawkes is guaranteed to make you feel clever, hungry and eager to book your next woodland escape.
- Over 100 meals to prepare.
Solve tricky puzzles with one simple goal; prepare the all the food. But don't be fooled: these puzzles are no walk in the park, and some of them are a hike up the mountain!
- Meet the family.
Follow a vacation like no other and listen to the campers as they tell stories, laugh at each other’s jokes or moan about the lack of cell phone reception.
- Puzzle solving, with a twist.
Twist, rotate and jostle skewers around the fire until each meal is ready to eat. Push fondue pots, play with magnets or maybe just use a camping stove if the fire won't light.
- Visit exotic hiking trails.
Each trail brings you new vistas brimming with color and different foods to cook. Take a journey from the deep woodlands to snow-capped peaks, and everywhere in between.
What's New in Version 1.0.4
- iPhone X: Fix for accidental app close when swiping sticks/skewers.
- Other devices: Reduced chance for swipes to open notifications.
Happy camping :)
Great puzzles but Game Center sync broke
The puzzles in this game are mostly on the harder side of average, with a few stumpers thrown in for good measure, but the harder puzzles can still be reasoned through with patience, and a bit of logic and note-taking.
I was thoroughly enjoying the game until my phone broke and I reinstalled on my new phone. My progress appears to have been saved to Game Center (great!) but the game now loads into level select and then ceases to respond to touch inputs. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but nothing changed, so my progress probably got corrupted somehow. Here’s hoping for a fix, but I may need to reset the game data and do everything over again :(
This is top shelf stuff. The level of challenge is just right for a casual game. I rarely became frustrated with the puzzles but they’re tricky enough to give you a sense of accomplishment (or relief) when you figure them out. The graphics are clean and attractive. Don’t expect much from the storyline. There’s not even a story, just some genial interludes between puzzles.
The controls are generally excellent, although it can be frustrating to rotate the skewers at certain parts of the screen, like the upper left. You have to hold your finger at juuuust the right spot. I like that the graphics are BIG and easy to tap. On an iPad you could probably play this wearing boxing gloves.
Fun and challenging puzzle
I like the concept of this game and I can see myself spending a lot of time on it. But one thing that is already so annoying just 15 minutes in is that on iPhone X I keep accidentally swiping to go home when I’m trying to rotate a wooden stick. Not sure how to fix this.
Edit: the latest update fixed my issue. Adjusted review to 5 stars partially due to the fix, but mostly due to the developer communication and engagement with the users.
