  1. The world of Lumines isn't always a pretty place, but it looks much better in motion. Try it. Hey, it's free. [Mar 2008, p.110]
  2. Addictive as hell, with a splash of awesome-funky-cool-o-rama. [Feb 2008, p.83]
  3. Effective time Hoover. [July 2008, p.84]

    Lumines is a beautiful distraction that can be as relaxing as it is challenging. While the base gameplay is enjoyable the few outstanding features are missing from the PC version.

    its... a decent puzzle game with an interesting music mechanic placed in. it is not nearly as obviously a core part of the game as in Chime for example.

    I played the PC version, and I am severely underwhelmed by the content of the game.

    If I had to explain this game simply to someone, I would say, get Tetris, Chime, and Puzzle Fighter smashed together, and you get Lumines.

    The gameplay is simple, but hard to master, however, the largest issue is that it doesnt feel nearly as addictive as just straight up Tetris, and lacks the charm of Puzzle Fighter, and lacks the heavy emphasis on music of Chime. it feels like it tried to be something different by copying the looks of other series... and then falling flat on its face with the very "meh" feeling you get from playing the game. I can only play the game maybe 5-10 minutes before I get deathly bored with it.

    The only content this game really gives you that is worth your while is the puzzles. the standard challenge mode (basically an arcade mode) is pathetically dull, and the different skins and music start to grate on you after a while.

    This is just a horrible game in general. The dev is so bad that wouldn't find to destroy someone's hard work just so their god awful game will make more money.

    DONT BUY THIS, let them lose as much money as possible as they deserve.

    Game maker Wild Game Studio abuses DMCA to censor negative reviews of their games. They actively forge positive reviews of their games. Stay far away from anything made by Wild Games Studio. Expand

    Stay as far away from Wild Games Studios as you possible can. They're against free speech and they're lying bastards. On top of that they make horrible horrible games. Expand
