  1. A nice puzzle/adventure based on struggle and sadness, able to grab the player in a beautiful world made of paper and shadows. LucasArts has created a deep gameplay system evolving the Lemmings formula and linking it to a Tetris touch. Try it and you'll experience few hours of intense pleasure.
  2. It refreshes with its purity of purpose and ambition, even if, as a mechanising of the grieving process, it’s a game few will wish to return to once completed.

    If you have enough patience, helping Sophie will be a pleasure for the senses, with many hours of entertainment as a reward.
  4. LEVEL (Czech Republic)
    Lemmings-like, easy to play platformer with a cheerful music score takes you to the dreamy world of creativity. Frustration comes sometimes with randomly generated game objects luckily not very often. [Issue#187]

    It's got a few design holes, but in part because of those, Lucidity presents a type of game you don't see very often.
  6. There's a lot of replay value, but it's ridiculously frustrating to get through this game the first time.
  7. With a beautiful, dream-like style Lucidity grabs you almost instantly. But while playing it slowly loses its grip. The concept knows too many flaws and irritations to keep you fascinated and the story is too minimal to provide a counterbalance.
  8. Lucidity is an interesting experiment, a beautiful indie-flavored game and a welcome addition to the Steam and Direct 2 Drive libraries. Gamers who appreciate metaphor and meaning will certainly find much to enjoy here. It’s just a shame that it isn’t more fun to play.
  9. Lucidity has stiff commands and some of the levels seems drawn at random, but it has a fantastic visual style.
  10. This visually enchanting game tries to whisk you away to a young girl's dreams, but the often frustrating gameplay makes for a rude awakening.
  11. 50
    Overall, this game is fun for a short period of time. The replay value and addiction factor simply aren't present. More game modes, multiplayer options and "stuff" could be added to give Lucidity a little more bang for your bucks, especially in this economy.
  12. PC Gamer UK
    A delightful dream devolves into a nightmare of poor controls and awkward movement. [Dec 2009, p.92]
  13. PC PowerPlay
    Charming and child-like yet frustrating and flawed. [Christmas 2009, p.64]
  14. It's immediately obvious that a great labor was undertaken to create and maintain the art style throughout, but it's marred immediately by lazy game design that neither finds any synergy with the art nor shows any pride in the product.

    Stylistically this game looked fantastic, sporting a beautiful storybook art brought to motion in what looked like a nice, intriguing game Stylistically this game looked fantastic, sporting a beautiful storybook art brought to motion in what looked like a nice, intriguing game that I hoped would be as good as Braid or Machinarium. Only after I wasted $10 on the game did I realize that the game itself is frustrating and boring. The point of the game is to put puzzle pieces before Sofi's path to keep her safe from falling to her death or various monsters. This quickly became difficult, which is normally not a problem for me until I realize that I have to go all the way back from the beginning of the map to start over. I believe this game was simply attempting to ride on the success of Braid as an Indie game but failed horribly. Please do not waste your money on this. Full Review »
