In a way, it's refreshing to get a game that knows exactly what it wants to do, executes on that idea, but doesn't overstay its welcome. The central mechanic of precision projectile motion is unique, and Lichtspeer plays with the formula enough to keep the experience fresh right up until the end.

It is a shame as the rest of the game has had a lot of care put into it. The music by Marcin Sonnenberg is excellent, the ancient Germanic future to the game is a decent angle for some humour, but it ultimately fails to maintain interest due to monotonous gameplay. This is a rare case where the game’s presentation outpaces its gameplay, leaving behind a creative and briefly entertaining, yet inexplicably dull game. Certainly good for passing time, but there are countless similar games on mobile devices for a fraction of the price.

Lichtspeer is a videogame that lacks the synergy between its different aspects, making it a mere arcade game. This videogame is entertaining, but it needs a style of its own in order to trascend.

Despite some great presentation, Lichtspeer is simply an unfair experience that never feels rewarding or fun.

t’s very funny, very sharp, and most importantly, a lot of frenzied fun.

Lichtspeer is nonsensical, bloody, and a joy to behold. It suffers from repetition, and stages that drag on a little too long, but is a worthy experience for those possessing the willpower to tackle this challenging title.

If you don't mind dealing with a high level of difficulty, Lichtspeer may be the perfect game for you.

At its best, Licthspeer is a frantic combination of a pulsating soundtrack and rhythmic spear throwing.

Lichtspeer's saving grace is its exceedingly satisfying aim-and-throw gameplay. Simple and yet devilishly compelling, it's the one trick up the game's sleeve that'll keep you coming back for more, despite some very challenging sections and so-so bosses. Arcade gamers that are looking for something new will have a ball with the flinger's fast-paced action, but for most, this will likely only entertain for a short while. It's not the best arcade game around, then, but it's also by no means the wurst.

Gut. Fantastisch. ÜBER. Lichtspeer is, as the devs claim, the best lightspear-tossing simulator I've played.
