  1. LIT stands proudly eclectic among the sea of mediocre titles available on WiiWare, bringing a truly innovative take on the puzzle genre to the table and offering a lot for players to explore. The issues with minor control flaws can't really bring down the well-executed atmosphere, clever design or overall fun the experience of playing the game offers.
  2. Like LostWinds, LIT is one of the definitive WiiWare releases. With plenty of challenging content and creepy style to spare, LIT is a must-play for horror fans.
  3. A clever puzzle game that will have you thinking and shaking at the same time. [Christmas 2009, p.101]
  4. A dark, atmospheric and reasonably original puzzle adventure. There's not much variation, though. [Jan 2010]

    LIT is a puzzle game wrapped up in a 3D candy shell and delivers a fun, creative experience that many will enjoy.
  6. Even with the shortcomings in its presentation and occasionally frustrating deaths, it's hard for a puzzle fan to be let down by LIT.
  7. 80
    LIT is another fine example of the advantages of WiiWare: daring, unusual concepts that publishers wouldn’t look twice at for the retail sector.
  8. This dark puzzle game will test your problem-solving abilities, as long as the design quirks don't kill you first.
  9. LIT is a very interesting puzzle game, with a gameplay premise which turns it into a very remarkable proposal within the WiiWare portfolio.

    There are a few aspects which seem clunky, but it more than makes up for those with a clever concept and an excellent take on the somewhat stale puzzle genre.
    I would highly recommend this. Hopefully this series can gain some traction, I'd love to see it on the DS or Xbox Live Arcade!
