Go, Lightopus ! You are the last of our kind. Go into the Abyss, save the Bulbies and bring back the Light!

All the Lightopuses in the Abyss were killed and their remaining young captured by the monsters of the Abyss. You are the only lightopus alive, a species on the brink of extinction. Your mission is to rescue the young Lightopus and free them from the Abyss monsters' sealzones.

G4's Knuckle Up- The Best Mobile Games
“I’m going to go out on a limb and predict Lightopus will be a future Hall of Famer for the App Store. It's a mix of colorful environments, simple yet challenging gameplay, and upbeat soundtrack make for one of those “lightning in a bottle” games you can’t stop playing.”

148Apps - Editor's Choice
“This game is not to be missed by those looking for something new to enchant them on the iOS platform.”

Touch Arcade - Beauty Through Motion
“Every feature adds to a superb overall presentation that just works.”

Pocket Gamer - Silver Award
“This is innovative gaming at its finest, and whilst it's let down by a few niggles, they're not enough to spoil what is a fantastically enjoyable, highly playable arcade adventure.”

AppTudes - Editor's Choice
“Lightopus is a beautifully crafted game. The game looks great on retina display, and the gameplay is both unusual and addictive. If players are looking for a challenging yet simple game, Lightopus is worth checking out.”

AppSpy - A Unique Experience
“Lightopus is visually intriguing and aurally relaxing, as you swim around protecting your babies, and having them feed on your enemies. A unique experience.”
