Family-Friendly Fun with Light in the Dark - #App #Review & #Giveaway

I always like to make sure I have a few fun apps downloaded onto my smart phone and tablet just in case we go on a long car trip or for times when I am super busy and don't have time to help Ashton entertain himself.  We absolutely love puzzle games so when Dreamgate Studios asked me to review their newest game Light in the Dark, I was more than happy to oblige!

My Review
Immediately after downloading this app onto my tablet, Ashton was ready to try this game out for himself.  After an hour passed without hearing a peep from him, I went into his room to find him still playing this game.  Games rarely keep his attention this long so I was intrigued!  I had to try this out for myself so when he went to sleep that night I grabbed my tablet and started playing.  
At the beginning of the game we discover that the adorable babies of the Totems, a colorful undiscovered species, have lost their way in an ancient labyrinth tomb.  The goal of the game is to reunite these cute little babies with their parents by solving perplexing puzzles and avoiding dangerous enemies such as cute little mummies and sandmen.  These villains force players to make their moves quickly as these opponents can end a level after a certain amount of time has passed or even tackle the poor parent Totems.  Gamers simply swipe the screen to move mirrors. which bend light.  Players can also reposition the parent Totems, which illuminate surrounding areas in one of three colors.  The baby Totems are only reunited with their parents when basking in the glow of their own preferred color.  To create colors, which are different from those emitted by the parent Totems, players must blend the light of the parents with each other.  To unlock all of the content in Light in the Dark, gamers must also spotlight stars on each level, in addition to the baby totems.  The more stars you highlight, the more levels they reveal!  
Not only is Light in the Dark absolutely adorable but it's also very addictive!  Before I knew it two hours has passed and I still didn't want to stop playing.  This game is a ton of fun and has even received a lot of positive reviews in the Google Play store!  I very highly recommend this app for anyone looking for a fun puzzle game that's easy enough for the little ones to enjoy but challenging enough for parents to play too.
