I was drawn into Lilly's world by the beautiful surroundings and the adorable visuals. Some of the puzzles were interesting and made sense, however, some were nonsensical and it was pure luck that I 'figured' them out. I 'finished' the game after 119 minutes only and was left very disappointed with the ending, or lack thereof. I love a game with a good storyline and this was not it. Glad I only paid $1.49 during the sale or I'd be even more disappointed.

Lilly Looking Through is a rather pretty point and click adventure game.

Sadly I can't recommend this as a purchase (well.. not for more than say $1 or $2) as it's very short (about 10-12 screens) and ends on... kind of a cliffhanger.

If you already own it, I do recommend playing for the beatiful mysterious atmosphere and puzzles centered on understanding and manipulating machines. Since you need to get most of these machines set just right, or do multistep actions with them, you can't just click objects till you get lucky, which is nice.

Many puzzles rely on color manipulation, and most have enough states you can't brute force them very well, so if you're colorblind you may struggle with the entire second half of the game.

Lilly looking through is a point & click adventure centering around magic goggles that change the world when you look through them. Your brother gets whisked away by a magic curtain forcing you to follow and ultimately save him while overcoming various obstacles along the way. It's an enjoyable short story.

It’s a different take on point and click adventure games but fails to live up to anything substantial.

Story:
Is there a story? Despite finishing the game, I’m really not sure at all. All I know is that you are a girl named Lilly who is searching for her brother who got kidnapped by a red cloth…. It’s kind of vague. I feel like there is supposed to be an underlying story by the fact that the ending hints at something but it’s literally a 3 second animation/dialogue so eh. Practically speaking, non-existent. AND IT ENDS ON A CLIFF HANGER.

Gameplay:
It’s a twist on an adventure game. You don’t move the character by clicking on certain spots like in most adventure games but instead click on predetermined spots to move there/do something there. It’s a system that helps newcomers learn the basics and allows for a good hint menu but the problem is that there is no way to interact with the environment and learn more. I can’t learn the backstory about the other kid. I can’t talk to him, I don’t even know who I am. There is no narrative and thus, the world seems kind of dead. This is a damn shame because the world is beautifully crafted but utterly wasted.

The second gimmick is that you can switch between the future and the past. This allows for some interesting puzzles where you can (for example) create paths by moving where to plant an acorn. Those puzzles are nice but there are about 3-4 puzzles that use this gimmick at all before the game takes it away. I thought this would be the central element but overall, I didn’t understand the point of it and it seemed wasted.

The puzzles themselves followed some bizarre logic. The tree puzzle mentioned earlier made sense and was logical in its steps but later puzzles had you do color manipulation but you had to figure out what all of the buttons did and what the end goal was. It was adventure game logic to an amazingly bad degree and it completely killed any motivation I had to actually get into the puzzles. They were contrived as hell.

Graphics/Performance: (with a 970, 4790K, 16GB of RAM, SSD)
The game is beautiful and looks like each scene was hand crafted but it chugs. Yes it’s pretty but not that pretty. The frame rate goes between 30-50 but I don’t know why. There isn’t an options menu where I can change my resolution so I had a weird scaled version that looked slightly off. The background music is pretty but the voice acting is extremely poor and I could barely hear it.

Final Thoughts:
This seems like a proof of concept game. A place where people can try out making a game and seeing what works. Each area mentioned above shows promise but the execution is off. Play it if you really having nothing else to do but otherwise, it’s a pass

A fun playthrough if a little short. My only drawback to the game is that I'm colorblind, particularly between red and orange, so I needed a little help at times from my non-colorblind wife.

A cute sweet little game, spoiled by a somewhat disappointing ending.

Almost turned this to a down thumb by the end of the last "scene". A short adventure with puzzles over 10 "scenes". I enjoyed the art style, music and feel of the game for the first half or so. Puzzles aren't too difficult but felt a bit random at times (lots of trial and error button pushing). By the end, it was feeling a bit old to have to watch the same little, slow animation as your character goes back and forth multiple times until you've figured out what you need to do and then how to actual do it. For me, it got very tedious near the end and I almost didn't bother finishing the game. I think if there had been any more scenes, I would have stopped without finishing as I just couldn't take the repetition. Overall, I enjoyed about 3/4s of this game, so I'll go ahead and give it a thumbs up....mainly because I liked the overall look of the game. Will not be playing again however.

Lilly Looking Through ist ein niedlich gestaltetes, aber recht kurzes Point&Click Adventure.
In diesem Spiel gibt es einige komplexere Rätsel, dafür aber praktisch keine kleinen Rätsel. Manche der Rätsel waren für mich sehr schnell und leicht zu lösen, während andere wiederum sehr knifflig waren, oder man einfach eine Weile rumexperimentieren musste. Besonders das letzte Rätsel war sehr knifflig und ich habe eigentlich auch nicht wirklich verstanden, was ich da so genau gemacht habe, aber ich habe es dennoch lösen können.

Fazit:
Die Schwierigkeit der Rätsel ist also gut durchmischt. Die Charaktere und deren Animationen sind recht niedlich gestaltet. Leider ist das Spiel aber etwas kurz und das Ende hat sich mir nicht so ganz erschlossen.

Lilly Looking Through ist ein toller kleiner Indietitel (GeetaGames), welcher mich an die alten Disneyfilme erinnert. Die Hintergründe sind gezeichnet und wirken irgendwie fixiert. Die Heldin des Abenteuers hingegen, wird durch die (süßen) Animation hervorgehoben und stolpert so durch die Szene. Die Musik unterstützt die Atmosphäre und gibt das gewisse Etwas. Ein toller Titel um einfach mal abzuschalten.

Wer dieses Spiel spielen will, sollte eines mitbringen: Geduld.
Ich spiele gerne Point & Click Adventure und fand die Grundidee des Games ansprechend, doch die Spielmechanik ist die Hölle - hier ist jeder Fehlklick eine Strafe. Denn es dauert ewig, bis eine Aktion animiert wird. Lilly bewegt sich so langsam, wie ein verträumtes Mädchen es anscheinend im Sinne der Entwickler tun würde. Doch das führt zu ewig langsamen Aktionen, die man nicht einmal unterbrechen kann, wenn man merkt, dass sie verkehrt waren. Und man macht oft etwas falsch - denn die Rätsel, die meist mit Farben zu tun haben, wiederholen sich zwar ständig, erklären sich aufgrund unnötig komplizierter Mechanismen aber nicht von selbst.
Während andere Spiele in einer Szene meist mehrere Aufgaben zu bieten haben, braucht man hier für eine einzige Problemstellung gerne mal 30min, wovon 15 mit Warten verbracht werden, darauf dass Lilly endlich mal das Rad dreht oder einen Hebel bedient.
Zusammengefasst habe ich etwas über 2h zum Durchspielen gebraucht und habe vielleicht 1 oder 2 Mal ein freudiges Aha-Gefühl gehabt. Meist waren es eher "Grummel, na endlich-Gefühle". Leider stützt sich dieses Spiel augenscheinlich nur auf die eine schöne Spielidee mit Lillys Brille und man dachte wohl, das reicht für ein gutes Spiel.

Ok, das Game war für mich ein Bonus in einem Bundle. Daher ist der Preis nicht so interessant für mich.
Alle anderen....für das verlangte Geld bekommt ihr sehr sehr wenig Spiel und das ohne jeden Wiederspielwert.
In jedem der 10 Screens könnt ihr gerade mal einige Aktionen machen, dann gehts in den nächsten Screen.
Das schwerste Rätsel ist dabei von Goethes Farbenlehre....wie färbe ich bestimmte Dinge so das ich weiterkomme....und das
mehrmals.

Nun, für die kurze Spielzeit war es zumindest recht nett...und da es ja quasi umsonst war.....

2) Recommended purchase
3) Recommended purchase during a sale
4) Not recommended unless heavily discounted
5) Not even recommended for Steam game collectors

Through the looking glass lense

After her young brother, Row, is whisked away by a magical scarf it becomes the task of elder sister, Lilly, to rescue him as she adventures through ten charming hand-painted locales each with their own individual set of environmental puzzles that require completing before being allowed to advance to the next area. Thankfully Lilly carries with her a set of magical goggles that enable our titular heroine to see each area in alternate dimensions which helps in solving most of the conundrums Lilly will find herself in during her brief but incredibly sweet adventure.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=268298540
Lilly Looking Through barely contains any narrative other than what is set up at the start of the game - the search for and rescue of your younger brother Row. Lilly Looking Through further embraces its minimalism by abandoning the adventure game trope of inventories filled to the brim with items that may or may not be of any aid in your adventures.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=256484781
Lilly Looking Through is not a particularly long or challenging game and most gamers should breeze through the ten different areas in about 2hrs. Some of the later areas do require the player to be cognisant of their surroundings such as the color-based puzzles and will require some out of the box thinking in order to get past but given the world that Lilly inhabits they are not so obtuse as to be completely out of place with the adventure and the world that the game sets up for you to explore. Solving each areas puzzle will require Lilly to do something, move something or climb something whilst often alternating between each areas dimension.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=268301950
The difficulty curve is gently matched as each areas puzzles become more and more complex but not complex in such a way that hours, days or weeks could be spent by the die-hard adventurist (he/she who refuses to view a walkthrough of any kind) as they attempt to solve a particularly challenging game world riddle. To support the puzzles, GEETA GAMES, have crafted one of the most visually stunning adventures games to come along in recent years. Each area and its alternate dimension is lovingly hand-painted and are frequently gorgeous to look at. Equally as stunning is the games soundtrack. Each area has its own distinct and soothing melody that was just as lovely to listen too as the hand-painted backgrounds where to look at.

Lilly Looking Through is a gentle adventure game that can be cracked open and completed on a lazy Sunday afternoon and one that I found was a pleasant diversion from all the bombast and never-ending length that has become the AAA game of late. If I had to nit-pick I would say that Lilly is ultimately let down by its ending that does very little to explain what came before, during or even after the adventure ends. I imagine that, given GEETA GAMES budget constraints (this was a kickstarter funded project), there was a larger tale its makers wanted to tell but were unable to do so financially hence the rather abrupt and confusing ending. Hopefully Lilly Looking Through generates enough cash to see the story continue because while the game may err on the short side (very short side) it's a charming place to inhabit for a single afternoon.
