What is Light in the Dark?

Light in the Dark is a puzzle game where you must reflect, blend, and control light to solve puzzles and maneuver obstacles. It’s $1.99 in the Google Play Store with in app purchases but the in app purchases are fairly innocuous. It also features cute characters which makes it great for kids.

Here’s how the game works. There are creatures in every level that emit a certain color of light. The number and color change from level to level. You must use the obstacles in the level to block the light, reflect the light to various places in the level, or blend the light with other light sources to create new colors. If done correctly, you’ll solve the puzzle, collect your three stars, and move on.

The game also features over 30 achievements, 96 levels, and hints if you need help. The in app purchase model allows you to purchase hints if you need them but really you can play without it. The developers have also promised more levels, game play mechanics, and features in future updates which we always like. There is even a color blind mode for those who may have trouble distinguishing the colors but still want to play this game. That is something we thought was extremely unique and we liked it.

Light in the Dark review
Overall, this is a puzzle game on Android. It features cute critters, fun game play, and the color blind mode is awesome. We do realize that this is yet another cute monster game and that premise is kind of tired. However, it does help that the game play is actually pretty good. If you have a couple of bucks to burn, give this one a shot.
