    Lichtspeer is nonsensical, bloody, and a joy to behold. It suffers from repetition, and stages that drag on a little too long, but is a worthy experience for those possessing the willpower to tackle this challenging title.

    Lichtspeer is really, really good. If you’re not afraid of a challenge and aren’t put off by an absurd sense of humour, you should gird your loins, grab your speer, and get ready to take on the ancient future.

    Almost everything from the plot to the enemies to the presentation embraces the oddness of Lichtspeer, all they do so in a way that's not obnoxious. The game doesn't shy away from trying to challenge you from the outset, but it does so in a way that feels completely fair, even when dying seems like a constant thing. Most importantly, Lichtspeer is a fun experience that will stick with you, and it has the potential to draw you back in again, long after you've beaten it.

    Describing its world as an “ancient German future,” Lichtspeer is filled with amusing overtones, and the enemies themselves are often ridiculous and fun. Whether it’s viking penguins aboard longships or blue-skinned giants in sunglasses, there’s a comical feel to the whole thing that helps keep it entertaining.

    Lichtspeer is a repetitive one trick pony but still I’m curious what the developers will think of in the sequel (if they ever make one, that is). [13/2016, p.75]

    I find myself thinking that maybe I’ll play Lichtspeer again at some point in the future, but after the short time I’ve spent with it, I feel I’ve experienced all there is.

    The game looks pretty good and starts out as some geometric spear lobbing blood filled mayhem. Loads of enemy types make the game fun to play.The game looks pretty good and starts out as some geometric spear lobbing blood filled mayhem. Loads of enemy types make the game fun to play. The crazy puppet style beasts offer up quite a challenge at times. many of the levels drag on a little to long but overall the game is fun. Expand
