"I don’t like playing Lumicon. It’s too good at creating a frantic experience."ZTGD (7.8 out of 10)

This was my favourite Lumicon review and seemed to hit exactly what we were aiming for. We wanted to make a somewhat simple game premise and give it depth, that stood out from it's competitors, and that could be thrilling by being "masterable", but brutally unforgiving if you muck something up.

Designed and built by both me (videogame design, visual & audio design) and Nial Giacomelli (videogame design, programming), Lumicon is a tactical word game for iOS, in which players must battle time to form words, trigger combos, gain powerups and score points.

We were chuffed with our reviews:

"Which is why discovering that Lumicon is unforgivingly difficult right off the bat was like a smack into a refreshing brick wall."Kotaku (Gaming App of the Day Award)
"If you like word games, this is definitely one of the best looking ones on the App Store."Beautiful Pixels
"...a tilt-a-whirl of tossing, screaming, stomach-flipping nostalgia. It’s why I stand in line for 45 minutes in the first place."148 Apps (4/5 stars)
"If you’re a word game lover, you will want to give Lumicon a try."App Advice
