God of Light Game Review


god of light bannerGod of Light, what a mighty title it is, well, isn’t it? And, then one would think, is it an equally great game we are talking about? Is this physics-based game worthy enough to bear it? Here’s our word on this subject.

God of Light is a puzzle game developed by Playmous. It’s a very touch-friendly title which creates a stunning user experience by incorporating beautifully designed levels that are both challenging and jaw dropping to look at, especially in the dark when the light effects really tend to pop out of the screen. Throw the deep social integration in the mesh and you get a very decently crafted game.

The concept of God of Light is the following: you get one source of light which needs to be activated in order for it to emit any light. Then, the light emitted from the main source needs to be reflected, bent, painted and even teleported to the so-called sources of life in order for the light to emerge back in the fictional universe. Sounds easy? It is at first, but only until you dive deeper into the vast universe of darkness.

Bringing light to the source of life isn’t the only thing to look out for. There are also many, many crystals to collect in the process of doing it. Collecting the three of them earns you a perfect level, though quick thinking also plays a big role here. Also, be careful to spot some glowing creatures lurking around. They can be very useful, as they can show you the way to solve a puzzle if you ever feel stuck.


Collect all crystals to earn a perfect level

Regarding the “universe”, it’s pretty big, actually. There are all in all three different worlds with approximately 75 levels to beat. It’s not the biggest and most versatile game we’ve encountered, but it’s diversity and simplicity bought us. However, there’s one little thing that we wish it hadn’t existed, but comes back to haunt us every time we think about it: in app purchases. We don’t mind the additional bonuses here, we only hate the fact that the only the first world is unlocked, well, unless you want to spend some extra money to unlock the other two.

God of Light features deep social integration, as it is mentioned above. Naturally, it also comes with Google’s achievement integration and Google+ leaderboard. This way, you’ll never stay out of touch with your friends.
