Critic Reviews for Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition
Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is a great enhanced port of the original game. While it does have a few more issues than its other counterpart, the additions of co-op and updated save mechanics make this an easy recommendation if you want a cheap indie title to play with friends.
Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition is a funny and interesting proposal that relies on an old school gameplay based on memorizing patterns and on trial and error...and this is where its qualities start receding, as Lichtspeer exaggerates on the endless number of deaths and repetition to the point of putting players off.

Lichtspeer is mechanically simple but stylistically demented. Set in a world that throws more neon at you than a dodgy warehouse rave, its arcade style gameplay is certainly repetitive, but satisfying enough to keep your interest for a while with the solid spear-hurling gameplay at its core. The addition of co-op multiplayer is well implemented, both enjoyable in its own right and extremely easy to jump in or out of. It's a short, repetitious experience, well-suited to the Switch's portable nature, but its occasionally unfair difficulty is used to pad the game out. Additional content and a bit more variety would make this über compelling, but it's still a good time so long as you keep an eye on your blood pressure.
Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition can be both a fun and rewarding experience for those wanting a quick challenge. Otherwise, the fun of throwing neon-colored spears at wave of enemy after enemy can wear thin fast alongside its difficulty curve, which is sure to get your blood pressure rising.
