Lightopus is a beautiful game with another very unique idea for a game that works very well. You play as the last “Lightopus” and your goal is to go back into the abyss and save all the Bulbies which are essentially baby Lightopus’. If you were looking for story, this really isn’t the game for you. That last sentence basically sums up all there is to the game. There’s not much to the game, yet it’s still pretty fun.
The game is very GPU and CPU intensive so if you don’t have a high end phone you may not experience all there is to the game. I found it harder to play as my Atrix 2 doesn’t seem to be optimized for the game. When I launched it, it didn’t take up the full screen nor would it switch its orientation. This isn’t to say that makes the game bad though, just a small bug that should be fixed in the near future hopefully.
Like I said, the game is beautiful and if you decide to go premium with it you’ll be able to download an HD pack to make it even more beautiful. The only odd thing is that you can’t pay for it with money. You are required to download apps or sign up for offers to earn shells to purchase the HD version. On the positive side, your essentially getting a free game, but your also wasting your data plan on games you don’t really want.
I still don’t think the graphics beat Sentinel 3: Homeworld’s graphics or even it’s soundtrack. Both games have excellent soundtracks both fitting for the setting and feel of the game but again, I think Sentinel 3 still beats it in that area. I guess it’s not really comparable though with them both being very different genre’s but if your going to spend money on it, I’d highly suggest taking a look at yesterday’s featured app, Sentinel 3: Homeworld.
The game should give you a few hours of fun if your the arcade type of person, but I don’t think its for everybody. The game lacks a lot of replay value. Give it a try though! I enjoyed it for quite a bit.
