"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."

AUDIO: Excellent                                                    AESTHETIC: Colorful
MEMORABILITY: Interesting                               WORTH: Discount

PROS: Easy to understand, hard to master. The difficulty escalates nicely, making for a great test of ability. The game goes along with the rhythm so the soundtrack is more than just background music.

CONS: When it comes to Lumines OSTs, this is probably the weakest in the entire series. Very disappointed in the music, considering the fact that I've loved all tracks before this game. This game could benefit from intuitive leaderboards and the occasional sale, as 9.99 USD for a subpar installment is rather expensive.

OVERALL: Don't buy this game at full price. It's alright, but if you own a PSP you'll want to pass up this port all together. If you don't, at the very least wait until it's on sale. (It doesn't go on sale often at all, though.) There are better puzzler/rhythm games on Steam.

This isn't the Lumines you're expecting.

- My wired Xbox 360 controller wouldn't work.
- Can't rebind keyboard controls.
- Mouse controls were way too twitchy and cumbursome.
- 640 x 480 resolution graphics (!)
- fullscreen was also low res and in a weird super-wide format.

This is a real bummer. I loved playing this on my 360, but this is a horrible horrible port.

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
