    Lumo is a neo-retro game done right: Tough as nails, but at the same time addicting. No matter how many times the main character kicks the bucket, you'll be ready for rematch. If the equipment survived the tantrums that the game regularly provides. [Aug 2016]

    Lumo is a wonderful little thing, gorgeous and intricate and tricky, and a perfect example of what a game from the past made for the present can be.

    Logical masterpiece presents an excellent gameplay and sternvisuals. In today's competitive platformers Lumo represents another forward/backward step at the same time, as Braid and Super Meat Boy in their time.

    A fun, imaginative platformer that’s full of ideas, but prepare to die, a lot.

    You are most likely not going to see Lumo appearing on any “Game of the Year” lists this fall, but it is absolutely a valiant first outing for developer Gareth Noyce.

    This game features isometric platform gameplay in which we will discover secrets and clues to follow the story. However, the gameplay is limited by its fixed camera because it gives a false depth perception.
