Lums

JohnBLums is the story of a bunch of Lums and a bunch of Vampires. It's a physics puzzle game that takes a unique angle on the Crush the Castle / Angry Birds formula of tossing things to destroy structures. Instead of pigs or snooty royalty, though, you get to shed a little light on some grumpy vampires. Watch 'em burn!

LumsTo the left are a few bouncy mushrooms along with your arsenal of Lums. Tap to set your first Lum in motion, launching itself into the air and heading towards the strategically placed vampires on the right. Instead of just watching the destruction commence, Lums gives you the chance to control what's going on. Swipe the screen while Lums are in the air to manipulate (to a certain degree) where they go. Guide them through each stage to destroy shelters so those spotlights can reach the vamps!

There are five types of Lums to use across nearly 50 stages, each one unlocking as you complete certain levels and earn stars. The difficulty progresses at a steady, even arc and presents you with only a small selection of Lums to use each round. There aren't many chances to cut loose and just destroy stuff, but Lums is a game of precision and skill, not random flinging. But, you know, if you're tired of sitting and taking out vampires one by one, try deploying a nuke!

A great game with some absolutely gorgeous artwork (those lights! those shadows!), Lums is captivating from the get-go. Once you get a taste of sizzling vampire you won't stop until they all see the light.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

Nice looking game!

But as always, no Android, no purchase. Sorry.

I'd like to try it, but the free versions aren't available in the US store.

Android version any time soon? ;) Not only visually interesting, I quite like the gameplay description as well.
