Lumines II is the highly anticipated sequel to the extremely addictive puzzle-based video game, Lumines. To play Lumines II, gamers control squares made of four smaller block pieces that are dropped into the playing field, one at a time, to form same-colour rectangles. The vertical timeline sweeps across the playing field from left to right, and wipes the same-colour rectangles from the playing field. Unmatched blocks pile up and the game ends when the pile gets to the top of the playing screen. Advance through many action-packed levels, each with its own musical theme and sound effects.
