Lumox 2 Reviewed
7:57 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Laser Pirate Squad's Lumox 2, a match-the-blocks puzzle game similar to Tetris. Players must keep the screen clear of blocks by matching groups of four in 2-by-2 squares. The Game Room gave Lumox 2 a score of 3.5 mice.

In short, Lumox 2 is breathtaking just to look at, and very, very engrossing to play. There are literally thousands of variations of visual styles—it’s a bit like turning Apple’s own iTunes visualizer into a game.

You can adjust graphics settings to match the capabilities of your Mac—well equipped systems can handle some advanced visual effects like “smokey block” particles, score-filled particles and other effects. Game mechanics are simple to use—you can configure the controls yourself, or use the defaults, which map block direction, movement, and rotation to the arrow, control, and option keys. An option lets you play the game in windowed or full screen mode, and a “three color” mode adds another hue to the blocks on screen, for experienced players.
