Primal flame has some great music and gameplay mechanics which are only found in the best games. That being said, despite some effort to get further into the game, I cannot justify continuing playing or recommending this.
The gameplay is fluid but the game lacks encouragement to continue. It is very difficult and easy to lose. There are only three stages to play and, although this is usually not an issue, the stages are too similar and playing through each one can feel like a chore. Seeds can be collected during play and used to spend on different flames and spells but only one upgrade can be chosen at a time, meaning that spending seeds is usually not worth the time taken to collect them.
I must praise the creators for making such a well-constructed game but, at this point in time, a lack of variety in the gameplay seems to be limiting its potential.
