Super Lumi Live Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Super Lumi Live by Gemi Games and Flying Interactive.
Super Lumi Live is an extremely brutal 2D platformer that takes some inspiration from the likes of Super Mario Brothers and Super Meat Boy. The game doesn’t have any blood and gore, though, so anyone skilled enough can play it.
One thing I will say about this game is that it’s one of the hardest platformers that I’ve played in recent memory. I’ve played platformers that were hard before but this game takes that to a whole new level. It’s an immensely frustrating game and it prides itself in grinding your face in the dirt. It’s easily masochist levels of self torture.
If you can manage to get past the first area, you’ll find that the game features multiple worlds to play through. There are 6 altogether and there’s 60 individual levels to complete. Each level you complete will be tougher than the last with the final level of the area being the most challenging.
In each level there are 3 types of collectibles to collect. The first are small white diamonds, they’re the most plentiful in a level. The second are large yellow diamonds, these are hidden and often out of reach, there are 3 of them in each level. The final one is at the end of each level and is a small glowing star, there’s only one of these.
Super Lumi Live is also built with speedrunners in mind with the gold and silver medals requiring you to complete a level within a fast time limit. The times are well beyond my skill level to achieve, often requiring 30 seconds to get a gold medal.
The game’s controls feel very fluid as well and there’s an option to enable always run. I’ve found that the game is slightly easier to control if you have always run on. This would be up to your preference though.
Even though Super Lumi Live is an extremely challenging game, I still found it to be pretty addicting. The game unintentionally pushes you to complete the level, no matter how many times you die. There’s also a “one more level” feel to it after you complete a level too. Since the game is so difficult it also feels very rewarding when you finally complete a level as well. If you’re a fan of hardcore platformers then this is one you should definitely check out.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review folks. I’ll be back with my next review soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
