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.
Flowing Lights has smooth controls with great physics mechanics, but the levels become repetitive after a while with little replay value.
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 cleverly blends shooting gameplay with physics to make one impressive action-packed puzzle-like arcade experience.
Flowing Lights unpacks the bullet hell genre to deliver an excellent puzzle game. It may be short, but it’s sweet enough to – in some ways – rival the classics.
I have a rocky relationship with puzzle games. Sometimes, I enjoy them and other times I don’t. So where does arcade-shooter puzzler Flowing Lights, the first game developed by gFaUmNe, land in this? Read on to find out.
Flowing Lights failed to hook me at first, but the more I played, the more I grew to appreciate it.
Flowing Lights is a wonderfully addictive title that blends timeless gameplay with thought provoking puzzles and is a must for anyone looking for a modern arcade shooter, with a twist.
'Flowing Light' adds puzzles to the traditional top-down shooter. More than 200 puzzle missions in the game offer plenty of fun, although the desire to have all the characteristics of each genre have somewhat weakened both natures.
