Pure artistic love !
This is one of those apps that changes societies view of games and apps in general. Artistically I have yet to see any game be as creative in its approach. The amount of love and passion seeps through everything you see and touch in the game. Knowing that everything is handmade, one can see the love that was put into it. Major developers can learn a lot from this game. Not for its puzzle solving or game controls or even its graphical prowess. Because let's be honest the game is great but in comparison there are many great games these days and many look better. But all the millions spent on the next big FPS will not give people the feeling that there are playing something special.
This is more a interactive work of art than anything, which in my opinion is the impression only a great game can leave.
Is this for everyone to download..no , but it does not mean that we should not appreciate it. As a fan of iOS games, the work put into this shows me that the surface has only been scratched in regards to what can be down on this platform. The game is most definitely worth 5 dollars . As we have all spent more on crappy gas station food at some point, so why not support an amazing group of artist that are willing to take risk and make there dream and art a reality.
As so many others have said, the look and the art make this game. It's fun just to watch Lumi move around her world (would have enjoyed more freedom to explore). But at the same time, I felt sometimes that the game play was suffering in favor of the look. In particular, in the last bit with the turbine room, you view the "action" from way below and it's impossible to tell what's even going on with the character. I realize that is part of the look and the makers couldn't realistically zoom in on every little thing, but I felt like I missed a lot of details and the inability to manipulate the view was often annoying. Also, the puzzles were...weird. So many I could have scarcely figured out without the "handy manual," but with it, it felt less like a puzzle stretching my own mind and more like following complicated directions. Like building something from ikea. You don't get it, you just do it. In hindsight, that's an interesting twist on a game, but not what I was expecting. Okay, but enough negativity: it is a beautiful and fun game! I enjoyed playing and it was well worth the $5 I spent.
Finally, a game with a lot of awards, accolades, recommendations, etc. that is actually WORTH all of the awards, accolades, recommendations, etc. More often than I would like, I have purchased some games based on rave reviews and recommendations from Apple, only to be sadly disappointed. I am realizing that awards and Apple recommendations can be meaningless, and that it is good to read the critical reviews before buying an app. There will always be the typical negative reviews that are common for every app, but that is also where you will know if it is indeed as awesome as it is touted, because if it is not, there will be a consistent stream of critical reviews, usually saying the same thing. (I'm talking to you, Monument Valley.) But this game seems to have almost all 5-star reviews, which I believe it has genuinely earned.
This game has great graphics (and surprisingly hand-made!; I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't already known), a great story, fun puzzles, cute dialogue between other characters in the game, and cool music. The ending was good too. What a superb game!
