Cut, Crush, and Flick Creepy Creatures in Lumos: The Dying Light
We cover our fair share of Indies here at Android-Games, and it’s always nice to stumble across hidden gems. Lumos: The Dying Light certainly falls into the Indie category, and it’s one of the coolest “Tap & Destroy” games we’ve seen in some time. Lumos: The Dying Light puts you in charge of a little orb of light that’s been surrounded by all kinds of creepy crawlies. Your job is to keep the light shining, and you’ll do this by tapping, swiping, and flicking away the shadowy creatures. If you get hit too many times you’re toast, and that’s how you play Normal mode which is the free part of the game. Lumos has two other modes of play with Blood Moon Mode and Night Farer Mode. I haven’t wrapped my head around Blood Moon Mode yet, but Night Farer Mode has you using tilt controls to steer clear of the monsters. It really changes things up, and you’ll get three free games in both Night Farer and Blood Moon Modes. In addition to the extra modes, Lumos: The Dying Light has power-ups, achievements, and a graveyard mini-game. I’ve always enjoyed eerie games, and Lumos: The Dying Light is a creepy little game that’s a whole lot of fun. There’s plenty of depth between the modes, and the atmosphere does a good job of sucking you into the world of Lumos. You can pick up Lumos and get Normal mode for free, and if you like what you see the rest of the game can be unlocked for $2.99. If you’re looking for something different, it’s a game you should definitely check out.
