Developer: Rock Square Thunder
Genres: Platformer, Puzzle
Maybe in time, The Lightbringer will get an “illuminated edition” or some kind of redux, where the developer can give the game the extra bit of refinement it needs. If that never happens, for its price, The Lightbringer is still worth a play for its feel-good atmosphere, and engaging platforming.
The Lightbringer is a beautiful game that'll appeal to anyone who enjoys 3D platforming with elaborate puzzle-filled stages. I wish that it was a bit more forgiving with its continue system, though, as playing through a lengthy stage again can be a huge pain in the tuchus.
The Lightbringer draws a lot of inspiration from earlier Zelda games. It is all about invoking that feeling of wanting to explore every nook and cranny of the game, which it succeeds in doing. The game isn’t as difficult as the old classics, so if you liked the old school classic platform games and want to try out a new take on the genre, give The Lightbringer a try.
Overall though, The Lightbringer by Rock Square Thunder is a light hearted and maybe even entry level adventure for those thinking of getting into the style or for veterans needing something low key for an afternoon. Soft and bright colour palettes with an easy to pick up gameplay, it’s a relaxing game if you’ve been needing a break from forty hour adventure or daily grinds.
