Genre: Point and Click Adventure

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.

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.

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.

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 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 kickestarter 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.

TL;DR LLL is a good point and click game with tons of adventure game errors.

Yes, I know I said it wasn't recommended. I'm probably gonna get shot in the head for this, but, Lilly Looking Through just feels like wasted potential. When I was going into this game, I had high expectations because people were saying it's good, and that it's like Machinarium and so on. After finishing the game (yes, it was that short), I don't feel like it's really that great.

Lilly Looking Through is a story about a girl named Lilly, who has to rescue her brother Row, from a... magcial cloth who has appeard to taken Row away. Yeah. Anyway, let's start with pros. The pros are that the game is charming and whatever, and has a nice setting. You can switch between two worlds to solve puzzles in and the art style is really cool. The animation in this game is wonderful, and it just looks overall great. The game isn't too hard, and you'll have fun playing it. Maybe.

Now it's time for the long list of cons. Some are personal, some are obvious.

1. The game is waaay too short. After finishing a puzzle, I was thinking what would happen next to these two protagonists. Then the game ends. Seriously. On a cliffhanger. One second I'm partially enjoying myself and the next second the credits are rolling.
2. YOU CANNOT skip animations. So whenever you're doing a puzzle, you have to watch every slow animation Lilly makes. It looks nice, but not when you're sitting there for minutes watching Lilly shamble on. These long animations actually help lengthen the already short game time. It makes the game super tedious and I can't enjoy it if it's like that.
3. Variety. There were a lot of the same puzzles. Ones with color mixing. I no like colors. I never thought a really short game could get repetitive.
4. Random. There's an appearance from Lilly's Grandpa at the end that had nothing to do with anything and it baffled the ♥♥♥♥ out of me. Also, there's like 5 lines of voice acting that randomly appear and I don't get it.

Overall, I wanted to like this game, but I just couldn't bring myself to enjoy it. There were a lot of cool things, but when you stop and look at it, you'll realize that there's problems abound. With that said, I wouldn't mind a sequel with some improvements or a new game from these guys. There's still a lot of potential here.

Not a bad game after all. But quite expensive because this game has short story and no value of replay. The good things are great background in game, interesting puzzles and innovative idea about how to solve problems with glasses.

Whilst this is a pretty game it lasts as long as it takes the cards to drop. Too easy - too short.

Cute little game that has really nice art and puzzles that don't overstay their welcome. The only downside for some people may be that it's a little short.
