God of Light iPhone Game Review.

When I came across God of Light, I honestly thought it had something to do with Game of Thrones. And it does. Not graphic or story-wise. But, just like Game of Thrones is a one of a kind, thrilling, amazing, and probably one of the most addictive TV shows ever made, God of Light is one of the most interesting games I’ve played. This year for sure, if not ever.

Really cool puzzle game

Puzzle games are, usually, extremely interesting, and you can really feel they put your mind to the test. But there’s something more to God of Light than just its quality of being a great puzzle games. I can’t say whether it’s the beautiful graphics, the out of the ordinary gameplay, the soothing background music, or a combination between all of these features. But one thing’s for sure: once you’re hooked, God of Life takes you to a whole new world.

Bring the light to the source

The focus of this game is finding the objects that reflect, split, combine, paint, bend, and teleport rays of light. Your job is to move and connect this objects to bring the beam of light from Shiny to the Sources of Light. Shiny being the cute, little mascot of the game, whose main power is producing light. And the sources of light being a sort of portals, that, once lit, can light up the entire universe. This game is spiced-up with quite a lot of fairy dust, magic, and fantasy, as you can see.

By moving, and rotating reflecting objects

What I like most about God of Light is that it’s something new. And not new in the sense that I’ve never played it before. But in the sense that it brings an actual new gaming experience. A unique atmosphere, along with a creative story, and interesting gameplay. Although the gameplay might be a bit confusing. At first, I thought the player has the power to control the beam of light, when, in fact, you have the power to move the objects reflecting the light, and by controlling them, you control the trajectory of the beam. Some objects can be moved, others just rotated. And the rotating system is also a bit too sensitive to my taste. So, at some point, it almost feels like performing a surgery, trying to rotate the objects as slowly as you can, until you get just the right reflection.

And when the going gets tough

So, sometimes, it’s complicated. Other times, you just go with the flow, and get it right from the start. It is, after all, a puzzle game. Plus, it also depends on how well you want to complete the task. Because, if you only want to get the beam of light from Shiny to the source, sometimes all you need to do is rotate or move a couple of mirrors, and your job is done. But if you really want to do a good job, get more points, and unlock the next stage of the game faster, you need to think a bit on the trajectory of the beam. This way, there's only one right path the beam can follow to reach the source, while collecting all the life crystals, and fireflies.

Call fireflies to help you

And what’s really cool about fireflies is that you can use them, any time you feel stuck, to give you hints about solving the puzzle. You can collect them by bringing them to light, by moving the beam in their direction. You can earn fireflies by watching sponsored videos. Or buy them through in-app purchases. The choice is yours, and I really appreciate a game that gives you options.

Beautiful, creative, but also quite complicated

All in all, God of Light means 5 game stages, 125 levels, soothing background music, challenging, but interesting gameplay, beautiful graphics, and quite a lot of fantasy. And this week, you can download it totally free of charge, because it’s App of the Week in the App Store.
