Ratings and Reviews
In reimagining the classic Tomb Raider games, Square Enix built a turn-based puzzler that’s both true to its roots and completely fresh. This Apple Design Award winner pairs a gorgeous art style with super-fun gameplay where you avoid traps and collect relics. The experience feels so perfect for iOS, it was also our 2015 iPhone Game of the Year.
Amazing Puzzle Game, Wonky Controls
The puzzles are amazing! Some are hard and some are not so bad! Don’t get me wrong, the game is fun and it still deserves 5 stars. My only problem is with it it the controls. First of all, I love how there are no on screen controls so none of your content is covered. My only problem is how the controls function. The controls revolve around swiping the move left right forwards or backwards. That sounds like a good concept, but that’s where the problem lays. When you swipe, you only move a set distance. So when you move in a straight line you find yourself constantly swiping in the same direction. This type of control makes the walking motion look very unsmooth. Overall, I definitely recommend the game because the puzzles are very fun and some are challenging. Props to the creators I just wish the controls were different.
This is the way you make a puzzle game
Coming from the original game, playing the “GO” version will obviously not get you what you expected. There’s a bunch of reviews expressing dissatisfaction because of this.
These are puzzle games; they take a certain combination of thought processes spanning both right and left brain.
Addictive isn’t quite the word; for something to be addictive it requires that you must have more and more of it for the same effect, and produces an undesirable effect in ones life. MtG cardboard crack is addictive. This game is more of a tool for your brain like a composer is to an orchestra.
Using one mode of thought to search for hidden objects, another to put the logic together building your path and yet another to find a creative solution, your brain is effectively exercised along the way and reward centers of your brain light up - a dopamine hit I haven’t gotten in years.
But there aren’t the drawbacks here as with the original Tomb Raider; where poor timing on a tedious task, failed for the thousandth time sent a PS one controller flying across the room in frustration.

Lara Croft GO has gotten a free update with a bunch of new levels. This makes the one of the best Android games from last year even more extensive.
Lara Croft GO Update
Lara Croft GO was one of the big surprises of the past year. The game followed the already excellent Hitman GO but goes much further than his predecessor. The Tomb Raider style combined with own elements works so well. While the original game with all 75 levels is not a small one, there are now 26 new levels added. The expansion is called The Shard of Life and is completely free.
In Lara Croft GO, you play as the heroine of the Tomb Raider games. She is an archaeologist who is not afraid to use her guns. Her goal is to find artifacts and she goes far to achieve that. In the game, you control Lara per turn, while the enemies and the environment react to your movements. The game allows you to solve a puzzle in each level to reach the end. Puzzles become harder and, therefore, more and more fun.
Lara Croft GO Update
The update Shard of Life adds a whopping 26 new levels to a completely new area called The Cave of Fire. These puzzles build on the basic game, so they are again a bit trickier. You don’t need to have played the basic game to get started, but it is recommended. Obviously there again new items to collect, earn costumes, and earn achievements.
Download Lara Croft GO
In addition, the game is temporarily a bit cheaper. Normally Lara Croft GO will cost $4.99, but now you can buy the game for $2.99. If you download the app now, you get the update immediately.
