Summary

Glo is a puzzle platformer with a very simple twist, you cannot see anything in the level that’s not immediately in front of you, you can shoot bullets that emit light but that’s it. It’s a game you would expect to see on a mobile phone or a flash game on the Web and that’s not to slam it or anything. Glo is very basic in all ways from no game settings to the general length of levels and their difficulty. Glo is a perfectly fine puzzle game but it is a one-trick pony and not that difficult but it is an easy Platinum trophy so you know. Grab Glo if you want to feel brainy or fancy checking how good your reflexes are of hell just do it for the trophies!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
