Great puzzles amidst a snorefest of inactivity
This game was surprisingly good for the first few hours. A new device is introduced every couple of levels, adding a large amount of possibilities to the puzzles. Each puzzle is extremely well thought out, giving a great feeling of accomplishment once you finally discover the correct sequence of events for the solution. I have to commend the game for the great puzzle designs.
Despite all that, I chose not to finish this game. I quit after level 18 of 23. So why did I abandon the game? Several reasons...
The puzzles just seem to drag on. It just feels like you're doing the same thing over and over again with the only difference being that each level is more complicated than the last. There are also way too many levels that force you to walk back and forth across the level several times, and your character moves very slowly. There is also a 1 to 3 second animation every time you interact with something, and you interact with things a lot. So the game basically devolves from something enjoyable into a snorefest of constantly waiting for the game to allow you to progress.
I recently finished this game and I am in awe. The graphics are gorgeous, the sounds are beautiful, and most importantly, the message behind the game is so important, making the story inspiring. The puzzles are challenging, but not frustrating; it's one of those games that you pick up and can't put down, but it's because it's thoroughly interesting. I could honestly not be happier with this game. Overall, there were no major issues with gameplay as well; everything ran beautifully for me. I would love to see more levels in this game or a sequel to it. Thank you to everyone that participated in creating The Path to Luma; as a aspiring video game creator and Conservation major in college, this game took the two things I'm most passionate about and harmonized them. It has inspired me in so many ways.
Frustrating & ridiculous
Okay, good graphics.... If they worked! Sooooooo buggy. Game very unresponsive to touch such that you have to do some things 2 to 5 times to get them to work. Good puzzle concept, but kind of confusing.
As to their noble theme of alt energy? Ridiculous! Ludicrous! & Impractical! Ok, so they educate by showing different forms of energy production. However, it takes so much effort you couldn't produce enough food to provide the calories to the person creating the energy to even come close to the output. Oh but wait, the person is a robot. Don't need humans. Silly me. But seriously folks, it's true. And we are trying to find ways of removing dams, not create more, right? So not only am I frustrated with the game play, but trying to suspend my disbelief and get past get the concept is driving me crazy as well.
Worth a peak but make sure you have your zen relaxation tapes on back up.
