Review Light in the Dark Free

Brandon Girod
Features unique puzzle mechanics, offers a more difficult experience via optional objectives
The general aesthetic isn't exactly pretty, some of the puzzles might be a bit too easy even for younger children
Indie puzzle games kind of had their time in the spotlight a few years back. It seemed like every time you turned around there was a new game with a cool premise coming out. Mobile platforms never really got that love, but Light in the Dark for Android is a cool puzzle game that has its own twists that make is a really competent and fun puzzle game.
So this is a puzzle game where you are a living light source. You get dropped off in this random series of dungeons and need to light up baby light sources. Each puzzle has multiple objectives, though. There are usually three stars in every room that you also need to light as you’re also lighting to the babies in order to get three stars on the stage.
This means that position is key. As you progress through the different stages you’ll find that the puzzles get more complicated. Sometimes there will be objects like boxes that need to be moved, sometimes there are pressure plates, and sometimes you’ll have multiple light sources that need to be lit at the same time. My favorite instances are where lights need to be mixed in order to create a new color entirely.
Overall, I found Light in the Dark to be a really competent puzzle game meant for a younger audience. Adults will breeze past the puzzles, and the game doesn’t punish you for using a lot of turns or taking your time completing each level. It’s a great way to spend a few minutes.

Interesting mechanics, amusing characters, bright and vibrant colors
Very little content in the free version
Light in the Dark for Android is a cute little light based puzzle game. It features great mechanics, cutesy graphics and an abundance of variety in its levels. For an added challenge players can attempt to obtain 3 stars in each of the game’s many levels.
The game offers some incredibly addictive mechanics. Players guide a group of adorable totems that emanate a constant colorful light. Players must complete the puzzles by maneuvering the totems so that the light’s color matches the corresponding baby totem. Completing the puzzle while shining the light on as many stars as possible will help to unlock secret levels. Other mechanics that players can expect to encounter in levels are mobile crates, mirrors that redirect the light and even the necessity to combine light colors in order to create an entirely new one. My personal favorite in this regard is the Sandman. A tiny creature made entirely out of sand that wakes up when light shines upon it and will begin spinning towards the source of the light.
The cute graphics that the game employs are top notch, coming complete with amusing animations and bright, vibrant colors. Paired with some comic sound effects, that stand as testament to the game’s top notch quality.
Overall Light in the Dark possesses all the makings of an amazing puzzle game. Unfortunately the game offers very few levels for the free user. Players wishing to enjoy all the fun that the game has to offer must purchase the full version.
