AN ENTIRELY HANDMADE CITY. Everything you see on screen was made using paper, cardboard and glue, miniature lights and motors.

A UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL WORLD TO EXPLORE. Venture beyond the city gates to discover gardens in the sky, boats marooned high on an immense waterwheel, and houses dug precariously into cliffs.

AWE INSPIRING PUZZLES. Play with real objects within each scene. Control windmills in the clouds, provide power to a house using only lemons plus your own ingenuity, and work out how to win at the most puzzling pinball table ever created.

A PERFECT EXPERIENCE FOR TOUCHSCREENS. With a seamless interface optimised for mobile devices and tactile puzzles made from real materials, you'll feel like you're diving into a miniature world of physical playthings.

CLOUD SAVE SYNCING. Switch play between all your Android devices and pick up where you left off.

⚠ Note: Lumino City is a modern graphically intense game which requires a device with modern processing capabilities. Your experience may vary if running Lumino City on older hardware.

Update Feb 2023: They fixed the black box glitch! I was able to finish the game and it deserves all 5 stars. It's such a unique and interesting puzzle game. I love the world, story, and especially the art. Stay through the credits to see the ending! ------------ Review 2022 This is such a cute game, but it's got a glitch where everything that moves has a black box around it. It makes some parts actually unplayable because you can't see the things you're supposed to interact with. I'm so sad!

It was well over a year without an update due to the black boxes. After recent update I was happy to give it a try again in hopes of being able to play...wrong. I started a new game and made it to the photography house and there are just blocks where you disappear. I have yet to be able to enjoy this game after more than 2 years after purchasing it. Even with current dev app/game sales I would avoid putting $ into this dev.

I absolutely LOVE this game. I search & search for games like this. (Machinarium, Bertram & Fiddle, Inner City, antventor, etc) there are few like this & this is one of the best. One question tho, noodlecake has a ton of other games. Why is this the only one like it? I don't like action games. I love the casual, puzzle adventure escape type games. PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER. I don't even mind paying for GOOD games. Add another chapter to this one? That would be awesome.
