BackFire’s difficulty curve might make you hate it at times, but its design is fair enough that you’re always jumping back in to see if you can best it. What helps is that the game has an ingenious upgrade system that always lets you make progress, even if you’re just banging your head against a level repeatedly. Oh, and I almost forgot the best part: all of this feels completely intuitive and easy-to-control on a touch screen.

Yeah, BackFire is tough, but it tells you that from its App Store page onwards. And it's not that the game isn't pulling its punches, it's that the punches it lands are hard enough to knock you back, but never quite strong enough to knock you down.

BACKFIRE est un jeu d'arcade addictif, compulsif, difficile et très intense, jouable de façon extrêmement simple que ce soit sur iPhone ou iPad grâce à un gameplay à une touche. Il vous faudra énormément d'échecs face à toutes les créatures de ce monde imaginé par le développeur indépendant Joel Rochon, mais à force d'amélioration et d'apprentissage par la défaite, vous parviendrez petit à petit à avancer, exploser le premier boss, et ainsi de suite jusqu'à la fin... mais votre chemin sera tortueux, comme ce jeu d'arcade. A vous maintenant d'exorciser ce monde généré aléatoirement !
