100 Word Review - #T19 - Lightfish

Risk big, win big.

Genre - Action, Indie

Metascore - N/A

Developer Eclipse Games

Other Games by Developer - None

Tom's Playtime - 2.0 hours

Never have I seen a genre tag misused as much as “Action” referring to Lightfish. Lightfish is Qix, quite simply. Aesthetically based on marine life, Lightfish features your standard enemies to work around while trying to take over the entire screen, along with stationary grievances such as lava and ice. Qix has always been a classic, so it goes without saying that Lightfish is fun, but the amount of practice I've had in this type of game over the years means that there's almost no challenge in the game and it isn't doing anything new at all to compensate.

Tom's Score - 7/10
