Lumo


Were I the kind of person who was even vaguely able to rank things (I am not) then I could definitely see Lumo nestling somewhere towards the top of my “bestest videogames released in the past decade that I love” list.

It’s the Ultimate/Jon Ritman template for isometric arcade adventure games providing the foundations and that’s currently, genuinely, the kind of game they just don’t make anymore. Given how videogames is piledriving through resurrecting genres I’d be very surprised if that was forever but right now, there’s precious few of them made in even vaguely recent years.

A massive shame, I reckon. Unlike Lumo which is a triumph.
