If you play a lot of casual adventure/puzzle games, you see the same puzzles over and over again, or at least puzzles that are similar enough that you have a sense of what you need to do even if it takes a while to work out the details. So that definitely helped with Lume, in which none of the puzzles were particularly original, though some were definitely hard.
The puzzle I had the most trouble with was the grid/directions one. The instructions were pretty clear, but I'm bad at that sort of thing.
andsoitgoes mentioned Tiny Bang Story in an earlier post. I haven't played the iPad version, but I've played the Mac version twice, and I loved it both times. Wonderful, delightful, utterly charming game. Assuming the iPad port is solid, I imagine anybody who liked Lume would love Tiny Bang Story.
