Ratings and Reviews
State of Play’s brilliant adventure game lets you journey through a spellbinding paper world that has to be seen to be believed. Created in a complex process that’s part origami and part stop motion, Lumino City’s highly polished environments come to life like nothing you’ve ever seen. But it’s not just the backdrops that captivate—this unique point-and-click adventure melds clever puzzles with a heartwarming story to powerful effect.
This game is visually and intellectually and artistically awe-inspiring. A tiny girl moves through an incredibly textured world using her wits and the manual given to her by her granddad. The world is so small, and it feels small, but it is also vast and filled with familiar mysteries.
The manual itself is a work of art, and it’s only a piece of the game. It makes it everything that it is. For any challenge, it gives instructions, a simple clue, or the whole solution. This means nothing is miserably tedious or too hard because the answers are built in— not just to the game, but to the narrative. Our hero is learning the ropes, after all. You can play the whole game just by following/working out the explicit directions in the manual, and you’d be well within the narrative to do so. Not cheating at all.
Absolutely immersive and challenging and mind boggling. I started to play it on my iPhone — not fun. Too small a screen. The whole thing changed for me when I tried it on my iPad. Finished the remainder of the game during a blizzard. Absolutely magical. Fully recommend to anyone and everyone.
So clearly made with so much devotion, effort and fun
There's not a corner, level or puzzle in this game that I didn't see an incredible amount of intricate energy put into this game. Even if it wasn't completely made by hand, this game clearly just had so many little things to catch the eye and show that it was made for you to enjoy. There was no cutting corners here, and it worked. I had so much fun playing this game, and there's not a lack of challenge here because they even included a handbook which you can have help guide you on levels, which I did use quite a bit to be honest. It was just amazing how much hard work and fun was had creating this game!! If this game doesn't deserve five stars I don't know what does!

One of the most interesting new games in the App Store this week is Lumino City. This has mainly to do with the appearance because the game has a stop-motion world that is actually built by the makers.
Lumino City – a Beautiful world
Lumino City is an adventure game in which you must solve different puzzles. The story revolves around Lumi, a young girl that must look for her grandfather. She is on path to find out what happened, and obviously as a player you must help.
To do that, you go through different environments. These are made by the creators of studio State to Play with real materials in the real world, after that the camera was set to make a game of it. You will see cardboard, wood, felt, and other materials which, thanks to stop-motion animation, comes to life. There has been a lot of work, but it pays off because Lumino City looks beautiful.
Even though the games is beautiful, the puzzles are not always interesting. In addition, it is not always clear what you can and can not tap on the screen, so you are sometimes aimlessly walking through the world. Yet the puzzles are never so difficult that you spend hours on them. After solving a puzzle, and talking to the residents of the areas, you can continue on your adventure.
Lumino City appeared on PC but also on iOS it comes into its own. Especially on the iPad it looks gorgeous.
Download Lumino City

The game currently costs $4.99 on the App Store (and $6.99 in the Mac App Store). You do need a lot of space to install the game, almost 2GB. Lumino City works with iOS 9 or later.
