Luminati Review

Luminati adds a twist to the original, well known game Connect 4.

During the game power ups are placed in random slots, if you pick it up while dropping your token in you will be given it. You can store up to three, and use them at any point during the game. To activate it you press on it before you make your move and press it again if you want to deactivate it. There is only two power ups at the moment; Wings of fury which destroys horizontal row of tokens and Impaler which destroys a column of tokens. When you destroy your opponents tokens you gain points but if you destroy your own you will lose points. If you win you are given a large amount added to your score, and you progress to level 2.

Currently there is two modes, 1 player and 2 player (pass and play). There is going to be an update in the future which will being Game Center support, for online leaderboards and match making.

The controls are very easy to use. Tap on the left side of the screen to move left, tap right side to move right and swipe down to drop your token. Swiping also works. You need to make your move before the timer fully lights up, it is like a cog and a ball lights up in each groove. Once all eight are lit your token will automatically drop.
Luminati is a great game, with brilliant graphics and sound track. There is also a lite version. Definitely worth checking out.
