LIT reviews and comments

Story Rachael has disappeared somewhere in the creepy School Building. The Theme sounds like something out of a Teen Horror Movie, and is also Attached to it. As Jake, an (according to the Game Description) emo teenager, we now, in the middle of the Night, set out to find our Girlfriend. Gameplay Lit is a short Puzzle game. With the Help of four Different Gadgets, we can illuminate individual Fields and then enter them. Our Goal is to leave the Room as quickly and with as few Steps as possible. Later we meet two different Types Of opponents. Graphics and Sound Sound and Graphics are rather simple but coherent and quite cute. It should be mentioned as negative, however, that Lit really does not offer a single Setting. Both Volume and resolution or a Funer-/full screen switch should be available at least. Control The Control is a Disaster. The Game promises Gamepad support, but does not offer it. Although you can help yourself with a few Workarounds, if something is indicated on the Shop Page, this should also be kept. Without a Gamepad, the Game can only be played with a Keyboard. There is no Mouse control and the Buttons cannot be re-occupied. You quickly notice that the Game was previously designed on Console and Smartphone. Difficulty The Puzzles are kept quite simple. The Difficulty here is more likely to be taken by the Goals as quickly and as little as possible. Meeting The Targets can then be a bit more difficult. Playing Time After about an Hour I had played through the Game. Since the Controls didn't work for me as I had imagined and I was quite disappointed by the Game itself, I didn't Try to reach the Best times. However, other Reviews know that after about 1.5h, it is over. All in all There are 16Levels, the first 4 I Had done after less than 3 Minutes. Since the High Score list is only stored Eatery, it is also quickly over with the Long-term Motivation. Verdict Lit could be a nice Game for in between. Not too long, rather simple Puzzles and yet small Challenge. Unfortunately, the Game stumbles at three Points. -The PC implementation is disastrous for such a simple Game, there are no Settings, no Menus, nothing. -Gamepad support is completely missing, the keyboard control Offered Takes getting used to it and cannot be adjusted. -Long-term motivation is not provided by a lack of Agivements and a global High Score list. Unfortunately, Even with a Price of €3am, Lit is not recommended.

I Do not understand why in the initial screen of the game there is not even the girl and you can not choose it as a character to play with. Apart From This is a great game, but I would put more levels

The Figure does not respond as you wish. Sometimes It turns off the light instead of going, and you have to start all over again. The Sound is nice scary and otherwise the idea of the game is good enough. Just a shame that the figure does not respond as desired. And that you can't choose gender.

A cute and Bello👍🏻 game, but do an update where you can use the girl, is another thing, that is, the good ending is too hard to get and I know that most who plays at Lit has seen the bad ending, try to facilitate the game to get to the good ending

No tutorial this makes the game a bit gorging because we do not know how to move forward, turn on the lamps, break the mirrors, pass where there is the monster... One is obliged to test several manipulations and therefore to start again each time the level or there are new things.

Very good game but unfortunately for the girls we are obliged to have the character boy, it really is that you do not think the girl! And also the maneuverability and very hard, every time you walk near a lamp its off when you did not want! Here, if not good continuation.

It is true that the game lacks a tutorial, but unless one is too underexposed, the game principle should be understandable according to the first 3 leveln. The control can be found rump out by, although it is not advantageous to realize this by swiping, as I often accidentally build up a lamp and die. But Is certainly a matter of opening up. The game itself is fun and you have to think about it. Also a good game for in between

Unfortunately, there is no Tutorial, so here's the Control: You move by swiping in one Direction. When you have picked up the Ball on the Table, you have to tap the Window at the other End of the Card as soon as you stand in a Line. Update to 5 Stars: Have the Game through now and am thrilled. Very short and simple but for free. But it'S still a lot of Fun. You get used To the Controls. Tip: Don'T wipe where the Character is, otherwise you snap out Lamps too often.
