Lumo 

 

I am extremely thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Lumo on the Playstation 4 (PS4). This isometric looking video game can also be found on the Personal Computer (PC), and the Xbox One. A kid gets sucked into a computer game and becomes a little wizard looking character. He must solve the puzzles in this video game to find his way out of the game.

The isometric view looks fantastic in Lumo. The problem can be precise jumping in this game. Did I mention precise jumping is required to progress through Lumo? If I did not, then you should now realize it is required. I enjoyed the music in Lumo. I also enjoyed the non-violent nature of this game. We can use things like light to scare away the spiders. If we make a mistake we teleport back to the start of the room.

Lumo reminded me of King George and the Ducky. Why? There are yellow duckies to collect in Lumo. There are other things like tapes to collect in Lumo as well. The duckies can be challenging to grab. Many times they are on top of liquid that will teleport our character back to the start of the room. Gamers can play Lumo in Adventure of Old School modes. If you play in Old School you are allowed only so many deaths before it is game over.

There are some frustrating jumps in Lumo thanks to the view point and two possible control schemes. I love the elevator music in Lumo. The camera can be rotated slightly in Lumo. Never enough to help in my opinion. There are numerous traps that can make you have a really bad day. Lumo contains magic in it. I know there are plenty of families that will not play games with magic in it.

Even though Lumo frustrated me at times, I actually enjoyed playing it. There are few games these days I want to keep playing. Lumo is one such video game. It is a shame the PR and Marketing for Rising Star Games failed us so horribly. Their loss though. I hope to see sequels to Lumo in the near future. It was a pleasure to play and review Lumo on the PS4.
