Arctopia is a classic turn-based puzzle game.

Solve 147 levels across 14 chapters of varying difficulty.

In each level of Arctopia, your goal is to strategically use blocks of ice to extinguish all of the sinister eyebrowed flames that menace the level. Unfortunately, this is rarely straightforward, as fires may be inconveniently placed, blocked by burning oil barrels, or defended by blockades of ice.

You can create and destroy ice, but only below your current position, so thinking ahead is mandatory. . . and there are many traps for the unwary!

(Note that if you find early levels too easy (or you find a particular level too frustrating!), you can always skip to a different level and come back later.)

The number of moves taken for your best solution is saved for each level, so you can strive for maximum efficiency if you so desire.

The intro levels are (skippable) tutorial stages, so don't worry about learning the basics of the game.

Good luck!

Challenging and fun puzzler


This is a really well done puzzle game, complete with a cute penguin as your avatar in the icy world of Arctopia. 130 puzzles are included, ensuring hours of enjoyment. Difficulty ranges from obvious to real head scratchers, and there is often more than one way to solve a level. The lack of an "Undo" can be frustrating, but it's actually a plus not a negative, as it forces you to think about the consequences of a move very carefully. FWIW, I've never had the game crash on me, and I'm running it on an original iPhone (non 3G). Highly recommended for nearly any age -- my own 4 year old enjoys it almost as much as I do.

Fun & Challenging


This is a great puzzle game for people who spend time sitting on a bus, waiting for a plane to take off, or for whatever other idle time you have. It's easy to pick up and play for a few minutes, or to let yourself get sucked in and spend two hours on it.

I just finished the game, and it took 15 hours all together—but your mileage may vary. Kids like the game too and it's a great game for young children (6+) too—though admittedly it gets a little challenging for them and they need my help a lot after the first levels are completed! Now I'm waiting on an extra puzzle pack...

Great puzzle game!


Arctopia combines a creative concept and cute graphics to make an extremely engaging and challenging game. It's simple enough to learn - you play the penguin and your goal is to push ice cubes to put out the fires scattered throughout each level. You are able to both create and melt ice, push single cubes of ice, and hop onto platforms one tile higher. Given these provisions, try solving all 120 levels in as few moves as possible! This game will keep you thinking and having fun at the same time. If you're a fan of puzzle games, you should definitely give this a try!
