Review Beneath The Lighthouse

Brandon Girod
Wonderful atmosphere and graphics, innovative gameplay, doesn’t feature meaningless rewards
Ads pop in mid-game, timers are unforgiving
Beneath the Lighthouse for Android is an arcade game that puts its best foot forward in many aspects. The way the game introduces you to itself is pretty memorable. The game features retro graphics and a unique gameplay mechanic that brings a lot of personality to this game that many other games in the same genre simply don’t have.
You’ll start off on a clever tutorial path before you arrive at the first level of the game. I say that it’s clever because it introduces the player to the movement mechanic but doesn’t give the player the idea that they’re being taught the mechanic. What it does is places you on a death-free path to the level where you have to figure out how to move yourself. I think this ads a lot of atmosphere to the game because you’re not greeted by a level, you just get there and go. UI elements will briefly pop up once you complete the level, but then you’ll roll on to the next area.
Speaking of the game’s mechanics, this is a game where you indirectly control your character by spinning the level around. The first level is simple, but you’re immediately introduced to levels that are entirely cased in spikes, which means you have to be incredibly precise in order to complete them.
You get three hearts which are basically lives. If you get hit too many times then you have to start over, and you get new hearts every level. You are also on a time limit that is pretty unforgiving. You’ve gotta be blazing fast to get any sort of decent score, even the bronze level.
Beneath the Lighthouse has a great atmospheric aesthetic, but I’m not a huge fan of the gameplay itself. I felt like it jumped into things just a bit too quick for its own good, and didn’t find it very welcoming as a casual player.
