How it works
Having clarified, we find ourselves with a Shoot 'Em Up of vertical type, developed in two dimensions. Although it has some elements that we consider unique, it has all the old-school prototypes. As we mentioned before, this is not a title recommended for those who have adapted their eyes to last generation videogames because everything here smells of the '80s and '90s.
Beyond that, what we value very positively about Garden of Coloured Lights is its unique spirit regarding many aspects that we could consider essential when evaluating an entertainment proposal. Indeed, both the concept of the title, as well as its graphics and soundtrack, we have not seen them anywhere else before, and this is undoubtedly a matter that is appreciated.
Garden of Coloured Lights is not a complicated game, or at least it isn't in the initial levels, since it's all about having the patience to develop the necessary skills to defeat all the obstacles that are put in our way. And what are these obstacles? Well, considering that we are a small ship that has to move through space, the enemies are embodied by all kinds of flying elements and larger ships.
The graphics of Garden of Coloured Lights, which we analyze when it comes to games leaving aside the interface to be taken into account in the programs, we liked them in general lines. Although at times they are somewhat confusing and it is difficult to know what kind of elements we are dealing with, the movements do have a synchronization well above average,
Keep in mind
Garden of Coloured Lights is also a multiplatform game. You can enjoy it on your computers with the Linux operating system or any other with the Allegro library installed. If we add that its consumption of system resources is minimal, you can be sure that here you have a proposal for guaranteed fun on almost any PC.
On the other hand, Garden of Coloured Lights is compatible with the use of external devices to our computer to control it, such as a joystick, so if you have one at home, you have to connect it to your computer to use it with this game. Indeed, our user experience has been quite enriched, so we recommend all users do the same if they have a controller available.
That aura of the '80s and '90s, the possibility to entertain us again as before thanks to Garden of Coloured Lights. And it is a simple game to install that will not eat much power on your PC and that can be enjoyed on any computer. If you are still wondering if the games of other times can compete in the fun they offer with the current ones; you will indeed find the answer.
Something that we had already mentioned a little before but that we previously clarified would not be a weak point for everyone. At times, it is a bit confusing for each of the elements that appear during the game, although that is what the developers have sought. In particular, we must say that we prefer titles with more realistic graphics. Still, we must recognize that this style of artistic representation of Garden of Coloured Lights fits very well.
In general terms, Garden of Coloured Lights is an outstanding exponent of the retro fun that has become so fashionable lately. It has all the ingredients, graphics and concept, gameplay, and soundtrack, to achieve it. If the previous proposals of vintage entertainment you have tried have not convinced you, we are sure this one will.
