Lumino City – was $5/£5, now $2/£2

Grab yourself a bargain this week as one of the most ambitious and charming games on the App Store drops to its lowest price in for year. Lumino City is a triumph of originality, a puzzle adventure with 3D graphics made entirely in real life from paper, cardboard, lights, and motors.

The game uses real, handmade models. Amazing

Lumino City has been highly praised since its release – we gave it a positive review in 2015 and it even picked up a BAFTA for artistic achievement. It’s one of the most compelling experiences on the App Store, suitable for all ages and especially good on the big screen of an iPad or Apple TV. A single purchase will work across all your iOS devices.

Its graphical stylings were so loved that the developers later released a free Making of Lumino City app to give a behind the scenes look at how each of the stages was painstakingly hand-built and photographed for the app.

There’s a whole range of characters to talk to

This is an absolute gem and worth picking up while it’s on sale if you have an interest in puzzle adventure games or groundbreaking artistic endeavors. If you’re still not convinced, you can get the mega-short prequel Lume for free to see if you dig this sort of thing, and then inevitably move onto Lumino City afterward.
