    Witness the rebirth of a genre in Lumo – a classic isometric adventure with a modern twist for gamers young and old alike!
    As a contemporary take on the long-lost isometric platform genre, Lumo can be enjoyed by anyone looking for an absorbing, challenging and rewarding adventure. But for those who lived through the golden age of videogames – the 80s and early 90s – or know about the games and culture from that time, layer upon layer of nods, winks and touches to those times help build upon an experience that’s as heart-warming as it is exciting!
    With over 400 rooms across four unique zones, six hidden mini-games and all kinds of secrets to uncover, Lumo is a true voyage of discovery. How much you discover just depends on how hard you look…

    Lumo is a great game and evokes massive amounts of nostalgia. It’s definitely a revival of a long-lost genre and blends modern controls and mechanics with the rigid isometric setting. It does this in a perfectly balanced way.

    Barring the too easy first half and around two dozen of the games 400 rooms being simple transition areas without puzzles or platforming, Lumo does what it set out to do with confidence.

    Full of imagination, but you'll need a will of steel to get through its toughest trials. [Aug 2016, p.80]

    A fascinating jump in gaming past, with a varied gameplay and a pleasant art style. Unluckily it proved to be quite frustrating too, due to several bad choices in game design.

La musique est plutôt du genre reposant et à tendance électro, sans doute pour qu'on ne s'énerve pas trop (vite) devant cette espèce de jeu de plate-forme avec un petit bonhomme qui va de salle en salle et on ne sait pas où...

    Il faut sauter mais aussi éviter des pièges et tout ça... et récupérer des clés... Même si un mode "vies infinies" est proposé avec -cerise sur le gâteau- la possibilité de sauvegarder, on se fait bien vite chier dans ce jeu à la mords-moi-le-zob aussi limité que pouvaient l'être les jeux en... 1985 (ololol). Non, franchement, c'était pas la peine de (re)faire un truc pareil. Même pour rigoler.
