  • Summary: (Also known as "Kollon" in Japan, "Koloomn" in the UK/EU) Match and twist colored blocks to clear the playfield as quick as you can – it sounds simple, but blocks change sizes, are sometimes hidden or worse. You’ll need fancy footwork and a fast thumb – keep up or get kicked out.

  1. With the deep and strategic gameplay, a great tutorial and a variety of modes including a two-player ad hoc wireless mode, there's no reason not to purchase UBP.

    The new rotation mechanic takes some getting used to, but Koloomn proves complex, satisfying and horribly addictive. Good stuff. [Apr 2006, p.113]

    If you're good at it but never get great, it might not impress you all that much. Once you start putting together huge Chains, however, and earning those bunker-buster Magic Blocks, the game gets nuts.

    It's nothing fancy, but for puzzle freaks, this is a nice edition to the PSP library. [Jun 2006, p.118]

    Six months on, we're still playing "Lumines." This is only a mildly amusing diversion. [May 2006, p.74]
  6. If you’re looking for an extremely cutthroat head-to-head mode then you should certainly take a look.

    Some good ideas on offer here, but with an incomplete multiplayer offering the games potential is severely hindered. Recommended only for die-hard puzzle enthusiasts.
