Pixel Fireplace Lite is a cozy text-controlled app. Discover commands that interact with the fire or just sit back and enjoy the warm glow of burning pixels.

Try roasting a *marshmallow* or throwing in a *firecracker*. You can add up to 5 logs at a time and each will burn down to hot coals and going out. The full version, Pixel Fireplace, has logs that burn in real time (15 minutes each), all of the commands, plus it gets free content updates during the winter months. The latest update was 25 color-themed commands.

Commands to try: log, match, marshmallow, smore, eat, newspaper, photo, red, aurora, water.

Perfect - This is exactly how I pictured it by looking at the screenshots. It's very pixilated, don't expect high resolution or anything. It's absolutely worth the time and effort to download this just for the fun of it. Good work!

Review by Faragaut1945

Not a bad idea - Entertaing in a way, like the controls, what's with the graphics? I know it's called "Pixel Fireplace" but the developers took that WAY too far for my taste. And this is in NO way a game, simply 15 second entertainment in my opinion.

This fulfills my life - It's amazing. Pixels make the world go round, Retina Displays be damned! Now if there was only a screensaver version of this… or is that part of the full version?

Fancy! This would make a great screen saver - I like this fireplace, it helps me cut down on my carbon footprint quite a bit. I took and old laptop and put it in my fireplace and now I can have that fireplace feeling without releasing all sorts of carbon into the atmostphere! I would really like it if there was a screen saver option for this app. This would make a much better screen saver for my office than my selfie collection. Thanks for the great app!
