Mess with Lights and Shadows in the Game of Lums

By: Cinderkin Aug 2, 2013 | 2 Comments

The Vampires invaded Lums world. The only way to stop them is to destroy their hideouts in the shadows and expose them to the light. Is it worth your money? Find out in the review.

iPhone games are getting more and more popular as the years go on with games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Cut the Rope. There are hundreds of thousands of games on the app store and most of them are filled with micro transactions. I rarely play iPhone games because they aren’t really fun, but sometimes a game comes out that gets you hooked. That game is Lums, the game of lights and shadows.

Developed by Hyperbolic Magnetism Lums at first glance looks like a clone of Angry Birds, but you’ll soon realize that not only is it a different game it’s much better. Vampires have invaded the world of Lums and the only way to stop them is to expose them to the light. The game offers 48 levels with over a 100 stars to collect. With 5 different characters to use, each with unique abilities that help you destroy the vampires. There is the Cannonball Lum who is best at destroying everything, create spotlights with the Light Lum, or turn vampires into stone with the Stone Lum and more.

The gameplay of Lums is slightly similar to Angry Birds, although you have full control over your Lums. While holding your finger to the screen and swiping around you can maneuver your Lum in any direction you want. The levels are designed so that there are hazards you must avoid while also trying to collect stars. With well-placed vampires you’ll need to figure out the best path of destroying them while also going fast to score the most points. If a level gets too difficult or you have trouble completing it there is a Nuke Bomb available to you.

The game has a dark setting, but the detail in the levels as well as the little characters are very nice. From the rain effects to the light burning vampires, this game although with a dark pallet of colors still shows off great detail and art. The audio soundtrack reminds me of the Terminator and Zelda, which you may think is an odd combo, but it works quite well.

Lums is an iphone game that complements its touch controls well and is a challenging but rewarding experience. For only a $0.99 you really have no reason not to pick up this little gem from the app store. Lums is also available for $1.99 for the iPad for those that have one. It’s the perfect game to play on the go, during breaks at work, or even at home lounging. Be sure to grab Lums today. You’ll be glad you did.

Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever.

Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever. What exactly is The Link? The Link is a redesign of the Sanwa JLF shaft, which is the standard in a good majority of FightSticks on the market. It’s been designed so that once you stop gaming and need to store or travel with your FightStick you can remove the shaft that is sticking out and in the way.

Why this device is such a good product is because of how easy it is to install and use. The Link comes in three parts: the base, the top and the collar operation piece. All you need to do to use it after installation is to simply pull up on the spring loaded collar to release the shaft from the base. The same is done when putting it back on. Included with The Link is a 3mm hex key which allows you to tighten or loosen the ball top if need be without the need to open up the entire FightStick.

Installation of The Link is a breeze if you’ve got the tools to open up your FightStick. All you do is open up the FightStick to access the JLF assembly, remove the e-clip over original JLF base and swap it for The Link base, then replace the e-clip. It’s really that easy and only takes 10 to 15 minutes.

 I’ve use The Link now for 2 weeks and have had absolutely no issues while using it. This device is amazingly simple and practical. I used to travel for work and it was always a hassle to bring my FightStick with me due to not having room for the stick with shaft and ball top connected. I’ve also had the unfortunate mishap of my FightStick dropping ball top down and breaking. The Link alleviates those issues and I love it.

Another thing to note is that The Link doesn’t come off during normal play unless you absolutely want it off. It’s designed so well that it feels like using the basic Sanwa JLF shaft and doesn’t affect play at all. It took less than 10 minutes to get used to it and most users won’t even notice a difference while using it. It’s also worth noting that when The Link isn’t in the FightStick there is a hole where it was. I highly advice purchasing the extra dust washer and black cover cap to keep everything protected.

The link is available for purchase at FocusAttack.com for $35 RRP. I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone that owns a FightStick, you won’t regret owning one!

It's happened just as most of us had predicted. Our hate for everything wrong with the Xbox One has made Microsoft change it's policies. Check it out!

Straight from the horses mouth! Since their website is crashing right now. Read on Below:

Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.

For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future. 

Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One. 

You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world.

So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means:

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games– After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.

Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions. 

These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray. 

We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds.

Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year.
