    Like a good thrill ride, Lumicon goes from banal and meditative, comfortable and easy to a tilt-a-whirl of tossing, screaming, stomach-flipping nostalgia. It's why I stand in line for 45 minutes in the first place.

    Lumicon requires razor-sharp focus and nimble fingers, and there are plenty of strategies to suss out. If you think you and your vocabulary can handle it, you really ought to take a look.

    Even though I find the experience of playing uncomfortable, I was very impressed with the design and expect that most of those who enjoy word games like Scrabble or Spelltower will derive great joy from this addition to the genre.

    A clever little word game, Lumicon could do with a few more features, but it's still an entertaining way to tax your brain.
