Why is Flowing Lights different from other shooting games? Puzzle elements! They offer a challenge for the brain on top of the immediate fun of destroying monsters. Deeper challenges, deeper sense of achievement! How do these puzzle elements work? Each fight has been designed as a puzzle that requires a new tactic. Thanks to a unique system of terrain and physics, bullets flow like a liquid and create new and gripping gameplay situations. The goal is not only to destroy all enemies but also to find the right tactic to do so! This may require several attempts so Flowing Lights has been designed to facilitate experimentation. Failing and retrying is part of the game! Fights can be restarted instantly and without any penalty. Target audience: Flowing Lights was designed to be easy to learn and difficult to master. It's a game for players who like a challenge. Each fight can be won with 4 levels of achievement: C, B, A and S. Ranks A and S can only be achieved by completing all Combos, which adds new challenges for the best players. However, the game is easily accessible with playable tutorials and training modes.

Flowing Lights is a unique title that takes the arcade shooter in a new direction. The mixture of puzzles and bullet-bending gravity helps to freshen an aging genre by adding a layer of strategy. Although the title is marred with unimaginative aesthetics, the ingenuity soaked within the gameplay will communicate with fans of retro titles. Releasing at a budget price, this is definitely worth a shot.

Part bullet hell, part puzzler, Flowing Lights sees your little spaceship taking on an army of alien nasties. But a brute-force approach isn’t always the way forward in this intriguing hybrid game: use the planet’s own gravity to bend your shots and think your way to victory.

Flowing Lights has smooth controls with great physics mechanics, but the levels become repetitive after a while with little replay value.

Flowing Lights cleverly blends shooting gameplay with physics to make one impressive action-packed puzzle-like arcade experience.
