Abstract Puzzle Shooter The Light Inside Us Arrives On Android
After launching to critical acclaim on iOS last year the abstract polygonal puzzle shooter The Light Inside Us has made its way onto Android devices. This minimalist themed shoot ’em up from indie developer Dastan Games puts arcade shooter mechanics through a strategic filter as players fend off hordes of cone shaped enemies using pieces of their own body. It’s up to players to methodically fight their way through 56 puzzle style levels without losing too much of themselves in the process.
Players tap to move about the level in search of weapon types and vantage points from which to strike at their enemies. Dragging down on the screen and letting go will slow down time and allow players to take aim at their foes which is a very useful ability to have when your ammo and health are the same thing. Destroying enemy polygons will restore some of players’ health which creates a neat back and forth combat dynamic. Shoot ’em up fans will enjoy this strategic spin on the genre.
The Light Inside Us is available for $1.99 on Google Play.
