This was just reviewed at Macworld (http://www.macworld.com/2006/05/reviews/lumox2/index.php). I downloaded the demo and ended up buying the thing twenty minutes later (had two run throughs first :D).

I don't have a PSP, but have wanted one for Lumines since it came out. Well, I think I can bypass it now 'cuz this is GREAT! And $10 is the right price for it too. Anyone else try it out?

Here's a link to their webpage (with demo). (http://www.laserpirate.com/lumox2.html)

Insanely fun.

Am I doing something wrong or does this game not work? I'm running the demo and nothing happens when I combine block colors. I can fill the whole screen with blocks and the electricity bolt never comes. Don't understand the concept here.

You have to group color in a group of 4 :

X X
X X

or

0 0
0 0

That's what I do and nothing happens. I get even larger groups and it gets outlined in a white grid but that's it until eventually I can't place anymore blocks on the screen and it ends.

Ok, nevermind figured it out.

I was running the game from the disk image. Didn't think that would matter but apparently the game will only operate fully when it's running of the hard drive.

Big difference ;)

Ummm, if you tried it you would notice that there is music. Lights? I'm not sure what you're referring to. Either way, here's a cookie for trying.


The gameplay is there, and ultimately that is all that matters.
