    Why fiddle with perfection? This is essential if you’re a newcomer.
  2. Lumines Supernova provides another avenue of getting the great Lumines gameplay to the hands of the people that have yet to try it out
  3. Well worth playing for if you have not purchased one of the many other versions for a while.

    It feels empty. Most levels are from lumines 2. It has a two difficulty levels but they feel pretty much the same. It's still pretty addictive and fun, Full Review »

    "I've been playing Lumines Supernova so much that I see orange and white blocks when I close my eyes; that's a good thing,
    but I can't help feeling like the game could've been more."

    That is so true! I simply loved Lumines II and I have played it nearly 100 hours.

    Lumines Supernova is just like its predecessors Lumines (PSP), Lumines II (PSP), Lumines Plus (PS2) and Lumines Live (XBL).
    Nothing has really changed. You still erase blocks as fast as possible and it still works.
    Is there anything new? Yes. Online stats and a new game mode. Not that much, but it's only 15 dollars, so it's a good deal, especially for those who are new to this series. If you already have Lumines you should consider buying.

    The biggest minus and the only is minor glitches. Sometimes when you start time challenge it says FAILED before you have started.

    If you like puzzle games this is your game.
