Lumines is a game which is conceptualized around the arranging of double randomly sequenced 2x2 coloured blocks in creating complete 2x2 single coloured blocks, which will disappear. It has a slight similarity with Tetris only that a player would have more gaming area in this particular PSP game. This game seems simple at first, but it gets difficult as it progresses. Players start to feel the difficulty when complicated combination systems exist. After the player has succeeded in combining and creating the single coloured blocks, the blocks will be highlighted. At this point the player has to attach as many of the same coloured blocks as possible before they disappear. The game is over when the blocks have reached the top of the screen. There are several modes in this game which some players may use as practice before playing the main game. In the puzzle mode, players are able to get used to the various shapes, sizes, and colours of each block. One reason why players find this game wild is how the background music is synchronized with how the blocks move and rotate. So unless the player arranges the blocks in the right manner, the music could be all jumbled up causing the game to be quite confusing and wild. In the two player mode of this game, players can battle each other and the better player will be given more screen space to play; while the other player is given less space. Once you’ve started playing Lumines, you just can’t stop. Players who are into puzzles will find themselves attracted to this particular game because it’s harder, more challenging, and not forgetting, addictive then any other puzzle game.
