9 / 10

At first I was skeptical. Precisely because I am not one of those who play games on their smartphone.
But I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.
Actually, it's all about getting from the starting point to the target point.
Sounds simple enough, but as usual with Lara and Tomb Raider, it isn't.
This time Lara has to deal with snakes, lizards and other poisonous animals that cannot be dealt with head-on.
So the only thing left to do is to "ambush" or to kill with a spear from a distance. However, these do not wait until you finish them, but they move with every step of you and saw blades, break points, levers or columns that have to be moved make the whole thing a successful challenge.
The degree of difficulty increases with each level so that you only can trying it out and thinking about it.
The well-known collection of artifacts and gemstones is of course not missing here either.
It was really fun.
MY PROS AND CONS:
✅ simple operation
✅ increasing degree of difficulty
✅ creative and varied
✅ coherent art design
❌ no story
❌ only one solution

Lara Croft GO
Low-Poly Lara Croft
I don’t think I’ve played any of the “..... Go” games before. I knew Lara Croft Go existed but was surprised to find Hitman Go & Deus Ex Go. Who knows, they might be my next set of reviews. 😉Anyways, I have never tried any turn-based puzzle games as I always had some unexplainable hate towards Turn-Based games. I decided to try this just because the Lara Croft I know is pretty hot. I was about to abandon it since I didn’t expect to play as low-poly Lara but the gameplay kept me hooked!
About This Game
Storyline
Games with Lara Croft in them are known for having magnificent storylines & witty puzzles with a drizzle of intense action on the top. This game comprises of mostly only puzzles. Even the so-called “Action” part of it is puzzles. Although there are no dialogues in the game, it still manages to narrate a complete story through its gameplay. From what I understood, the plot of the game goes something like this:
You (obviously) play as the famous explorer, Lara Croft, who’s on a journey exploring the ruins of an ancient civilization in the Amazon Forest. While trying to uncover the secrets of the “Atlas of Beyond”, Lara faces a lot of challenges in her path. Is she strong enough to overcome these obstacles & reach her goal? Play the game to decide her fate!
Gameplay Mechanics
Everything in this game is rather simple, except the puzzles of course. The gameplay involves you moving tile-by-tile, avoiding/overcoming obstacles, defeating/escaping enemies & pulling levers. That’s legit all there is to this game. I thought it would have some complex parkouring & shiz so I started the game with a controller. Then after I realized that it had super basic gameplay, I switched to using my mouse.
You legit just have to click & drag towards the direction you want Lara to move & then she’ll move one tile towards the chosen direction. Left-clicking on Levers when you are on the respective tile will activate it. These levers usually move platforms. There are some tiles that appear to have cracks. You can only land on the cracked tiles once, if you happen to go on it again, it breaks & you either fall down into the void or on the ground below you, depending on where the cracked tile is. This is useful for trapping enemies!
Let’s move on to the so-called “Action” part of this game. According to the game’s description, this game involves “Fighting Menacing Enemies”. Well, you aren’t the person who is actually killing them, Lara does the killing part. You just have to position Lara on any tile that is at a 1-tile distance from the enemy. Oh, and it should also not be facing the enemy’s face directly or else it would attack you & instantly kill you. There are some enemies that are stationary while others move in different manners. For example, the snakes are stationary, the Salamanders follow you when you are 2 tiles in front of them, the spiders move in a straight line, etc. You will also face a final boss. I won’t be revealing who or what it is. Find that yourself! :p
In each level, you can spot carefully placed brown pots that have a golden glow from its opening. Clicking on this pot gives you either relics or a part of an artifact. They have no literal purpose apart from getting steam achievements & a 100% completion along with unlocking some cool outfits for Lara in-game. Both, the relics & artifacts, are level-specific.
The game has a total of 7 adventures out of which 5 are the base ones & the remaining 2 are bonuses. Each adventure has a set of levels within them. The existing adventures are as follows:
The Entrance‎
The Maze of Snakes
The Maze of Stones‎
The Maze of Spirits‎
The Escape‎
The Cave of Fire (Bonus/Extras)
The Mirror of Spirits (Bonus/Extras)
Visuals & Audio
In layman’s terms, the game uses low-poly assets. There’s something about properly made low-poly models that make them very pleasing to look at. The game has a somewhat bright appeal to it. Everything looks so…uhhhhhh Smooth & they’re very calm to our eyes. I loved it! The only drawback to the visuals is that Lara Croft is supposed to look hot, not low poly. :(
I never know what to say about the audio part of a game if the game isn’t music-intensive. Well, this game has calm & sometimes intimidating soundtracks. They perfectly fit the adventure genre!
Pros
A very quiet storyline.
Smooth & simple gameplay mechanics.
Innovative puzzles that get progressively harder to solve.
An entertaining final boss fight.
Cons
The game might not be really challenging to most of the players.
Collectibles are supposed to be hard to find but in this game, all of them are easy to spot if you look for them carefully.
No replayability rate unless you missed some collectibles & for getting missed achievements.
This is probably the biggest drawback;Low-poly Lara Croft isn’t hot. :(

Conclusion
This game was a fresh experience for me & I surely had a good time with it. Will I play it again? No. This game is fun only once since playing it again has no use as you already know the solutions to all the puzzles. It’s a really small game that’s also available on mobile devices & the PS4 and PS Vita. Fortunately, it’s paid on all platforms. I recommend waiting for a sale.

relaxing top-down Tomb Raider game with challenges, runs perfect on the Steam Deck

Review from Steam

This is more fun than I thought. I usually dont like games that are only puzzle based with no proper plot or any reason behind it, but this one is actually fun! No matter how complicated things may get, it doesnt get tiring and the ambient is very cool for the OG Tomb Raider fan <3
