    Puzzling and addictive, Lumen [App Store] designed by Bridger Maxwell forces you to use that brain of yours, once again.
    Lumen recently got a huge update in the form of version 2.0. This offers a new gorgeous interface (much more polished)
    as well as quick control options for easier game play. Lumen 2.0 is a charged update for everyone, including people who owned version 1.0 of the game.

    If you wish to try Lumen before dropping the £2.39 ($3.99), you can now do so by downloading ‘Lumen Lite’ [App Store].
    Lumen Lite now also features the new revised UI, as well as a limited selection of puzzles.

    At £2.39, Lumen is visually stunning, and addictive enough to open it up for a second helping.

    No, I am not the developer, but I wish I was. :p:rolleyes:

    Very nice! :)

    I saw the icon last night and knew a big update was around.

    It's nice to know that if we need anything, the developer is on these forums.

    The paid one is $3.99 in the US.

    I like the new UI - it feels a lot 'cleaner' than before. :)

    Thanks for the coverage! Your review is great. It is always cool to hear from someone who enjoys playing Lumen.

    I have to give credit where it is due though. Adam Betts was the artist who redesigned the interface. To be honest I didn't even give him any guidelines on what needed changing on the interface. He completely came up with everything himself. He spotted many UI flaws that Lumen had and fixed them without any instruction from me. He also was great about communicating his progress, delivering very on time, and charged a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

    Thank You,
    Bridger Maxwell

    I bought the game after enjoying the lite version. It's great fun and I'm enjoying it loads more since the overhaul - it looks so much better

    Cheers Bridger,

    Glad you thought the review was up to scratch, I've also noticed, as of today, you've now included the new UI into Lumen Lite too - That's AWESOME!

    Loving the game, and as a previous poster said, it's always comforting knowing the developer is only a PM away.
