"A Brilliant and Refreshing Puzzler."
- Eric Ford, Touch Arcade, 4.5/5

"Lums is a physics puzzler that gives the player an astounding amount of agency, which makes it so much more fun than other, luck-based physics puzzlers."
- Carter Dotson, 148 Apps, 4.5/5 + Editor's Choice

"Lums demonstrates that there's still some originality left in the dark corners of the physics-based puzzle genre."
- Nadia Oxford, Pocket Gamer, 8/10 + Silver Award


The Vampires invaded Lums world. The only way to stop them is to destroy their hideouts in the shadows and expose them to the light.

Use 5 different Lums in this beautiful action physics puzzle game. Destroy everything with Cannonball Lum, create spotlights with Light Lum, use Antigravity Lum to make their hideouts fly away, or turn them into glass by using Transparent Lum. Sometimes you just need to turn everything into stone. Stone Lum can handle that.

Love this game


Unexpectedly awesome

I can’t remember the last time I was so surprised by a game. I almost didn’t get it based on the screenshots that made it look like another Angry Birds clone. I am so tired of that genre. Lums is very different. You have precise control of the flights of several different types of “Lums”. One just knocks things over, one turns bricks to glass, one reverses gravity, etc. Your goal is to manipular the environment so that light hits vampires that are scattered throughout the level. It’s usually not too difficult to finish a level, but to finish a level while collecting all three stars is an entirely different situation. I usually find myself thinking, “This is impossible!” until I have my “Ah ha!” moment and realize what I have to do. I really hope they continue to release new levels. This is possibly my favorite iOS gams of 2013.

Yep I know

Cute lil game😈

I'm NOT a big game person. But I do enjoy playing "Angry Birds". Some have said that this game is like that...I find it hard to believe.

I'm finding it a bit more "confusing" on how you are suppose to MOVE the Lums! You DONT FLING them like in ABs, so right now I'm just moving them along with my finger. Maybe that's NOT how it's to be done but it's my way.

But cute lil game non the less!! 😈 4 stars b/c of not knowing the game play, fling em, throw em, push em along??? No clue.
