Luminosus lets you match colours on a Tetris-esque board, out now on iOS and Android
| Luminosus

Maxim Frisk has announced the official launch of Luminosus, the indie developer's mobile puzzle game that combines Tetris-esque gameplay mechanics with colour-matching. The charming title offers seemingly simple gameplay mechanics but with challenging levels that require proper strategising to maximise those points, and it's all about matching four or more colours to clear the board.

In Luminosus, players can expect to score points by matching different hues as well as combining blocks into other colours. The Classic mode offers a more low-pressure experience for those who are looking for a relaxing time-waster, while the Marathon game mode ups the ante for the more competitive players out there.

They can also duke it out on the global leaderboards to pit their brain prowess against each other for the ultimate bragging rights. Controller support is a plus too, as well as colourblind and night modes for full accessibility.

From the trailer alone, it does seem like clearing those blocks (along with the accompanying pops and clicks) can be pretty satisfying, and the lovely background music adds to the overall charm of the game as well.

If you're keen on joining in on all the fun and giving the game a go, you can now download Luminosus on the iOS App Store and on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It's a premium title that costs $1.99 a pop or your local equivalent.
