    Lara Croft GO (Logic Puzzle)

    Options include separate sliders for Sound and Music, Resolution, Full-screen/Windowed, V-Sync, and the ability to reset the game.  We also have a variety of outfits to choose from, all recognizable from other games, such as Deus Ex and Hitman.

    Get to the exit.  That's all you have to do... but first you need to find a safe route to get there!  Lara is faced with a variety of enemies, from Komodo Dragon-sized lizards that chase you to snakes to giant spiders.  Add to that treacherous terrain, switches, levers, traps and environmental puzzling, and you have Lara Croft GO.

    While you're puzzling how to get to the exits, keep an eye out for vases.  They contain pieces of relics and gems, each area having its own sets to complete.  Sadly, if you miss any of the collectibles along the way, you'll have to redo the ENTIRE chapter to get them, but on the plus side, the ones you've found will STAY found unless you reset the game.

    We have "books" (areas) to complete in order to finish the game, with a couple of bonus areas at the end.  Each area has a map with multiple levels you'll have to beat, with save points scattered throughout so that you don't have to re-do too much if you mess up.

    There's plenty of time to prepare your strategy, as it's basically turn-based.  You move one square at a time, and so do your enemies.  If you die or mess up, you can reset the puzzle at any time.  If you're having trouble, there's a built-in HINT system that will walk you through the steps needed to complete the level.  The hints can be turned off at any time, so - for instance - if you only need to know how to complete the first few steps, you can then turn it off to try and figure out the rest for yourself.

    There are some great animations, with Lara doing some of her signature moves... not to mention the occasional moment of showing off ;D  I liked the art in general, the puzzles were never boring, and the hint system is really nice for when you get stuck.  Absolutely recommended for logic-puzzle fans!
