The concept is simple: Stack and clear colored blocks while keeping an eye on the time. Sounds easy, right? Lumines is easy to pick up, but very difficult to master.

Addictive gameplay and a host of different modes will keep Lumines in your hands until the battery light goes red.

Lumines sets the bar very high for puzzle titles. It is one of the shining stars of the first available PSP titles and really, among video games overall. You won't be blown away by the graphics, but the play will keep you coming back. So is Lumines a Tetris killer? I think so.
