Lovux is a clever glass-smashing puzzle game out now

By - | Views: 10,557

Puzzle game lovers will want to check out Lovux, newly released from developer Mindlabor it's all about smashing glass. Note: the developer sent a key. Available on Steam with Native Linux support, it's absolutely delightful in the simplicity of the design but how it quickly smashes in many unique mechanics to keep you thinking.

As far as minimalist puzzle games go, this is top-tier stuff and quite a surprise from the initial few levels that get you going with basic up to some seriously mind-melting stuff. Easy to pick up and play with only a mouse-click needed, it's a highly accessible game - as long as you have the brains for it. The kind of puzzle game where you're presented with something that seems simple, then you're left scratching your head for 10 minutes on a single level where suddenly it's "wow — I'm dumb".

Bought it during the last sale. Including a bunch of other obscure puzzle games. Have yet to try it, but for this price I'm sure it'll be worth it.

Edit: played about 60 levels of it. Fairly easy puzzle game and difficulty goes up and down as you progress. But the sound of shattering is always satisfying!
