"The musical puzzler that helped sell the PSP. Although a barebones port, still a chill yet challenging puzzler that will have you tapping your foot."

An excellent PC port of one of my favorite puzzle games for the PSP, only hampered by the choice not to implement gamepad controls as an option. The modes are as entertaining and challenging as their original counterparts, and the music is an eclectic mix of some of the best Lumines & Lumines II skins. I highly recommend, if you don't already have it on PSP, Vita, or other Playstation consoles, that the PC port is a great way to go.

Dont let this game's seemingly simplistic nature fool you! As it ramps up it has you trying to think 3 or 4 moves ahead to setup and create the most satisfying block combos.
This game is easily one of the best puzzle games I've ever played. The captivating music and sound effects fit it's addictive nature very well.
The only thing I don't like about this title is the lack of global leaderboards :(
So if you're into puzzle games and like to think on your feet while under pressure. Buy this game!

Great classic puzzle game, moves at a nice pace and has a pretty low learning curve. Each stage clears the lines for you at different rates which can keep your on your toes and trip you up(On slower stages you have to really think further ahead as you can drop a lot of blocks before the current set clears) It's a meh port but still holds up and probably one of the better puzzlers on steam. The only complaint I have is that games can easily pass an hour once you are good at this game. The difficulty/drop speed goes up very slowly so it can be a good 30-45 minutes of gameplay before it starts feeling difficult, making it a bit harder to pick up and play for a quick session, the time attack mode helps alliviate this a little, but I wish the main game was slightly more difficult

The prodigal son of Tetris, the PSP-born Lumines is pure, absolute awesome. The seemingly simplistic gameplay sucks you in after minutes of playing, and does NOT let go. You'll want to score higher, get huge combo bonuses, unlock skins, and generally play more of it :D

Lumines is a favorite of mine but this PC port sucks. PSP or Vita is the only way to go.

This is the worst version of Lumines out there, but it's still worth getting if you've never played it before. That's how good the core game is.

The port isn't very good, but man, I loved this game back when it was first released on the PSP. The clean graphics, good music and addictive gameplay; it all made sense. The goal is to create cubes (by using cubes). The cubes that fall down have two colors so you have to match them and try to make as many cubes as possible before the 'beat line' moves over them. It's really a line that moves from the left to the right (apparently on the beat of the music, but I'm usually too focused to notice) and clears the cubes. Of course things speed up after a while until you are overwhelmed. It has a lot of similarities to Tetris actually (it's hard to create a game like this these days that doesn't use Tetris elements so I can live with it. Besides; Tetris rules !). Anyway, the game itself is definitely worth it, the port itself, however... not really. If you can get it cheap, do yourself a favor and get it immediately though.

[Rating: 80/100]

Q Entertainment makes great puzzle games. I wish more were available on Steam. Maybe Meteos. Rezz would also be cool to see.
Lumines started on the PlayStation Portable but translates well to PC. Playable with either mouse control or keyboard. The music is still great and the graphics and skins look great. The same classic puzzle gameplay is as solid as ever. Just match four small squares of the same color. The music shifts with your actions.

A super simple concept: make squares. A mix of Tetris and techno, the gameplay is so addicting and can continue for hours (if you're good enough. I'm not.). Several bonus modes like puzzle and time attack add more challange to a relatively simple game. Pick it up on the cheap and enjoy several hours of fun.

Did i ever mention that this doesn't have Lights? Like, what is the point of Lumines if Lights isn't in it? The mind boggles.

Always great. But take my opinion with a grain of salt, 'cause I can't help when it's about puzzlers.
