Your grandfather has gone missing and you need to solve fiendish puzzles with cryptic clues left behind by a madman. The only hope you have of seeing your grandfather again is to solve these puzzles and get the power working again. Lume is a point and click puzzle game. Each puzzle is masterfully done, adding layer upon layer. Its not just typical puzzles, but these are puzzles are off kilter. A is E, a triangle is 3, north is north east sort of off kilter. There are cryptic clues are everywhere. You'll get an inventory of parts to create a power generator and see your grandfather alive.

The truth is that you play as a child and your grandfather has gone to go investigate something. So he left clues for you to get his power up and running again. He's the madman. There is no threat, danger or game over. There is a variety of puzzles. Everything from lock combinations, to spinning wired tiles to connect all circuits. The clues for the most part will be in select pages of books and following instructions meant to get you lost with irrelevance. It is all a brain teaser's dream.

The game itself looks unique, because it looks as if someone made it with construction paper. Then filmed transitions between environments. The real downfall about the art is the resolution is stuck low so its a small screen with a giant dark frame. With such a unique art style, it should be a higher resolution to bask in its glory. There aren't many environments. Just a three interiors, two closets and an exterior consisting of two screens.

The controls are simple, just click things. Since it is a Flash game, just hover your mouse over something and the cursor will change to a pointer. Your inventory is easy to get to at the top of the screen instead of completely switching to an inventory.

At the end of the hour or two game, you find out this is just Episode 1. These were some difficult puzzles, but without the unique art style it would have gotten lost in the shuffle.

A not-so-complete review for a not-so-complete game. So bulletpoints:
  • The game is as bad as it's beautiful.
  • Puzzles are either ridiculously easy, or stupidly and insanely hard. Most of them don't make sense. You just get loose clues and have to aimlessly try things out until you get it right. I checked a guide and I'm glad I did. I doubt there was any playtesting.
  • Pro: fits the purpose of teaching people how not to design a point-and-click adventure game.
  • Low res, making the text really hard to read.
  • It's VERY short. Still I feel like I've wasted my time.
  • Cheap and still overpriced. I got it from TG for 195 coins and I regret it.
DON'T BUY IT! If you already have it, DON'T BOTHER PLAYING IT!

Point-and-click puzzle game with a unique and good-looking art-style. It is sadly too short (I completed it in around an hour), and is basically episode one (wich they mention at the end) of an apparently longer series. My guess is that the sequel is Luminose city. I can't recommend a game that feels like a demo.

Lume is a very short yet very well executed adventure game. The graphics are original, supposedly made entirely of cardboard, and the puzzles aren't too difficult to turn people away. You are a little girl looking for her grandfather and you have to figure out how to turn on the lights in order to find him. Very cute little game, though very very short. A sequel was just released recently, and I hope that when the price is right that I will get that in order to see the story continue.

Disappointed. Overall this game is not bad, but the puzzles are extremely difficult and the gameplay is entirely too short for the $7 they are charging. I purchased this game on sale for $3, and I still don't think that amount of money was worth it. If this game were $1 or less, I would be writing a much more positive review. If you love point and clicks with great artwork like I do, then you'll find this game to be just ok. Instead of this game, I would recommend the game "Tiny Bang Story". I got that game on sale for 80 cents and have played it through 3 times. It's similar to this game, except way better.

while i enjoyed lume, i would have trouble paying money for it.

the art style and animations are excellent, and i could happily spend some time in the world of lume. while it would have been nice to add a what-am-i-looking-at indication somewhere other than the cursor changing to a hand when you can interact with something, the interface was easy to use and never really got in the way.

the main problem is there just isn’t enough here. it’s probably over in about an hour, depending on how much you’re able to think the way the game designer did. if you didn’t figure out a clue, you pretty much need to look up a walkthrough because there’s only one clue for each puzzle. a lot of the puzzles feel like they’re trying to teach you simple math, which feels like maybe it’s intended for children but at the same time is probably too difficult for that. the music loop is a little short and it’s written in flash which means right-click brings up a flash menu instead of having anything to do with the game. it had big black borders on my screen instead of stretching to fit.

it’s worth your time if you pick it up as part of a bundle, but i wouldn’t recommend it on its own.

English:

It is a game for 5 minutes. But one or two of the puzzles are absolutly NOT doable! Really. In every Walkthrough I had to watch, they also said that those puzzles are not possible! And after ( about 5 puzzles ) the game ( well. "part 1" ) is over.
Really disappointing! I really wouldn't buy it for 7€! Thank God I paid only 2€.. that is too much either .. sadly!

Deutsch:

Ein Spiel das nach gefühlten 5 Minuten zu ende ist! Dennch sin ein bis zwei Rätsel absolut nicht zu lösen! Also wirklich nicht zu lösen! Selbst die Walkthroughs ( Komplettlösungen ) die ich mir anschauen musste ( um im "Spiel" weiter zu kommen ) sagen sie selbst, das dies absolut unmöglich ist! Das Spiel beinhalten ca, 5 Rätsel danach ist das Spiel ( nunja "Part 1" ) zuende. Absolut enttäuschend und keine 7€ Wert! Zum Glück habe ich es "nur" für 2€ gekauft... Immernoch zu viel.. Schade!

As beautifully-made as it is short, Lume is wonderful if brain-destroyingly difficult at times. I actually had to look up a walkthrough for one of the puzzles, it got that difficult for me.

I would still reccommend this wholeheartedly, ALMOST to the point of taking it upon myself to offer a money-back guarantee of enjoyment. But I won't do that because that's just dumb. And it's not my job. And this isn't my game. And I'm broke. But it's still a game that's worth your money, even if just to tide you over until Lumino City drops.

Lume has a novel appearance and a mildly devious twist on the usual sorts of puzzles in games like these. That said, it's really only very mildly devious - ooh, the compass is twisted 45 degrees and north isn't up, oh so tricky! - and I completed the game in half an hour... oh yes, it's very short. For the $7 I paid for it, I'm incredibly disappointed. Don't bother.

it is one of the shortest game i ever played.. an experience of an hour without a decent story, with just few puzzles to solve, ruin a cute idea. At least three hours of gameplay would have been appriciated.

Lasciate perdere, sono due anni che aspetto il completamento della storia e ad oggi "manco pu' chez" l'hanno finito; il gioco è ancora incompleto. Idee interessanti, ma è roba che si gioca in pochi minuti. Se lo scontano al 110%, cioè vi pagano per giocarlo, allora ok prendetelo. Peccato perché l'atmosfera in generale è piacevole. Se e quando sarà completato, solo allora, andrà rivisto il commento, ma per ora è evitabile.

Hanno perso il Lume della ragione...

Too short. I felt like I finished the introduction to a game, but not even a complete episode. It was fun and pretty while it lasted though.

A short and sweet puzzle adventure game.

I enjoyed the unique looking visuals combined with cute music and confounding puzzles.
If you like similar games it won't disappoint, but since it's very (very, very) short I'd only buy it again if it was on sale.

This is a charming game, however there are a few issues that are a bit breaking and after seeing that it costs 6.99€ just makes me say DO NOT BUY IT. If you do find it in a bundle however (like I did) sure, get it.

Now it's time for an explanation. The game is cute and your character actually walks around "real" objects, as in, the scenes were filmed with a real camera and then blended into the game.

It's a point and click puzzle game and it isn't an easy one either. Which, again, in itself is fine.

The puzzles are usually either a bit easy to solve or at least to figure out what to do, but there's 1 of them that is really quite horribly difficult to even make sense out of it.

SPOILER about that "tip" for that puzzle, it's a page of a book with the "ONE" in "GRAMAPHONE" underlined, and a #9 on the corner of the page... what this supposedly means is, there's 9 numbers you need (for a locker with 3 digits, therefore 3 sets) and it starts with ONE, then you have to read the text and find either the actuall number like "fig. 2" being the "2" the second number you need, and then "three"... then there's a year, 1887, the "1" is the last number of the second set of numbers and "887" the last one.
The problem with this is, the game gives you NO CLUE what this book is related to or even what to look for, your character only says "A book grandpa's been reading, he wrote something on it" and that's it, you really need a guide or an epiphany to figure it out.

Lastly, and this is what made me say NO about buying this for 6,99€ is that the game... only lasted me a few minutes, seriously, there are like 5 different screens (not counting small camera transitions) and only a dozen of puzzles or so, it's a cute short "story" but it's not even an apetizer, sure, in the end it says "end of lume part 1", but it's a part where you pay 6,99€ to get.


TL;DR

- One of the puzzles is nearly impossible to solve on your own, and crucial to finish the game;
- Even if you get stuck a lot, you can beat the game in only a few minutes, not even 1 hour.


Would I recommend playing this game? Sure, it is a bit fun at most and challenging, you will probably need a guide for 1 or 2 puzzles though and it's an interesting new concept.

Would I recommend buying this game? No, unless you're either filthy rich, or get it with a bundle, seriously.


In terms of the overall game and enjoyability I give it a... maybe 8/10 (without my puzzle issue).
In terms of the price/quality ratio I give it a 1/10 just because it's visually pleasing and new.

Thanks for reading this (if anyone ever does).

LoL, took me 7min to figur out what to do and 30min to complete the game.
It is a nice "Demo" (no, the whole game took me 30min) but it is so short, that I would give it f2p as a Demo. It's a pitty there are people giving away money for this...

I wasn't sure whether or not to recommend this game. In the end, I decided to recommend it. Why? Because even though it was extemely short, it was heaps of fun and quite challenging.

Pros:
- Visually pleasing - very nice art which looks like a lot of effort has been put into it.
- Unique puzzles.
- Pleasant music.
- Interesting and fun gameplay.

Cons
- Extemely short - felt more like a demo than an actual game.
- Overpriced - very expensive for what you get. Get it while it's on sale.

If you like point and click puzzle adventure games, I would recommend that you buy this. However, it is not worth it at full price, so I would say wait for it to go on sale. :)

Recensione di una copia anticipata
Lume is a small point-and-click adventure where your task is to restore power to your grandfather's home.

The game is light and fun. If you like games like Machinarium and Botanicula, you'll like this.

The only downfall of the game is it's length. It's incredibly short. I think I completed this game within an hour, which, for a game with no replayability and a cost of £4.99, is a little disappointing.

However, that doesn't mean the game isn't good. It is, it's enjoyable with some unique puzzling. But, I would say, if you're looking to get the game, wait til it's on sale.

For $6.99 there is an absolute abysmal amount of value to be had with this game. I beat it in 52 minutes. You could rent several two-hour long movies at that price. Apparently this is part one in a series, unfortunately the developers seem to have given up after episode one. It's cute, has a great aesthetic... it's just so incomplete. Some puzzles aren't as obvious as they should be. Poor design. Don't bother if you don't want to feel let down or suffer from buyer's remorse.

It pains me to say it, but as charming as Lume is, it doesn’t offer much else to back it up.

Looking back, it probably didn’t help that I played it just after Machinarium, For one, apart from one particularly obscure solution, Lume’s puzzles are rather simple.

But I think what really ruins it is how short it is. I finished it in an hour, and that’s because I played around a bit. I can certainly tolerate short games, but Lume doesn’t really have much going for it to compensate being so short. Even weirder is that it’s supposed to be episode 1 of a series, which not only was never released, but makes you wonder why they chose to make it episodic in the first place.

Now, the game has pretty visuals, really pretty indeed, and if you want to see that yourself, wait for a sale. But really, if you’re just looking for an adventure game to play, pick another one, Lume is light on content and will probably disappoint you.
