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.

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.

Horrible game with very few positive traits.

Animations are unskippable. There is only one solution to move ahead and that solution can be a logical or completely unlogical chain of events so you find yourself exhausting all possibilities all the time to find the correct one.

Machinarium is the closest kind of game and i disliked that one too but atleast it had an appealing world and main character. This one falls short of Machinarium.

A short (2-3 hours) great looking adventure game. LLT utilizes a light world/dark world effect in its puzzle-solving that works decently enough. Most puzzles are logical but if you're anything like me, you looked for a walkthrough once mixing colors came up. The last couple puzzles of the game rely on this and the color wheel is a foreign thing to me. Asking me to mix colors to solve a puzzle is a death wish.

Animations for the characters are well-done and have a lot of charm but one complaint I have regarding them is they can't be skipped or sped up, so if you're messing up a puzzle numerous times, you'll have to sit through the somewhat slow animations and back and forth every time. The ending is also rather abrupt.

In short, nice looking, cute adventure game that's on the short side.
