Features & Use
In this game you'll find yourself submerged under water in a sea. In front you, you'll see one green pearl and multiple whites ones. Theres an arrow placed on each pearl.
When I started my first Link It Lite game I was a bit clueless about how to play the game despite a short intro at the beginning. But as soon as you tap the green pearl you know right away what your next move will be. Tapping the green pearl causes it to emit a white ray of light that points in the direction of the arrow. Other white pearls get activated when they come in contact with another pearl's ray. If the arrow is pointing in the wrong direction, then the ray shines into nothing and you have to start all over again. Link It Lite is less about luck and more about a good tactics.
The point of the game is to make the rays come full circle by coming back to the green pearl. This way sound simple, but it's actually quite challenging.
Pearls with a lock on them cannot be rotated and can only shoot in one direction. Once a pearl has emitted a ray of light it loses its function. In other words, it becomes quasi-invisible and rays can go straight through it. Make sure to keep this in mind when your arranging your pearls.
The locked pearls aren't the only thing you have to worry about. Black circles represent immovable rocks that automatically end the game if touched by a ray. Red pearls can be used once before turning into rocks.
Sometimes the pearls are arranged in such a tricky way that you have to split the beam of light with the help of a mirror in order to get to the second pearl. All pearls must be activated and the ray has to be successfully redirected in order to complete a level.
Screen & Controls
The controls for Link It Lite are really simple, but take a little getting used to. Press the green pearl to start the chain reaction of light rays. In order to change the direction of a pearl, simply tap and rotate it.
Every completed level is automatically saved and unlocks the next one. In the main menu, you have the option of changing the sound and vibration settings.
On the main game screen, you can see what level you are currently on in the left corner of the screen. A small tutorial is displayed explaining the basic rules of the game before you first start playing.
If you fail a level, you can replay it as many times as you like.
Otherwise, I thought the underwater theme fit in really well with the general pearl motif.
