"Lanterns is a beautifully crafted game I just
want to play it again and again... "

"Addiction Warning!"

"Lanterns is a digital chill pill!"
App23

Works for all retina based iPads, iPhones and iPods.

Whisk yourself away to a far off land of
peace and tranquility to play Lanterns!

Lanterns is simple to play: Swipe to match
the coloured lanterns by weaving a ribbon
of light through them to illuminate their
true colours. Release to watch the lanterns
explode into a myriad of colourful fireworks,
the more lanterns you collect the more
intense the fireworks.

Match 3 or more in a single swipe to gain
more time so you can uncover the incredible
fireworks that lay behind them and play on...

Hints to get you started

Green Lanterns give you bonus time
Red Lanterns give you bonus points
Yellow Lanterns give you balance
Level Lanterns of various colours
help you to level up.
The longer you stay on a level the
faster the lanterns move
Levelling Up slows the pace of the game
Try and collect as many lanterns as you
can in one go
Try not to let any lanterns leave the
screen untouched

Above all have fun ;-)

Game Impressions

I am loving this game! I have been waiting a while for this one! It is truly a mix of Fruit Ninja style game play with Bejewled! It is very calming and enjoyable. You have to swipe and match at least three, but the catch is you cannot touch other colored ones in the process! That makes it more challenging in a very good way! The music is wonderful and zen-like as well! Great game! I am looking forward to playing this much more!

Funny, I've been playing this all week, can't get enough of it! There's something about it that keeps drawing me back - current Highscore is 21,234 - hoping to hit the top this weekend as there doesn't seem to be too much competition just another 70k + on top

I really like match 3 games but this really takes the genre in a new direction, oh and I think the music gets better the further you get...

If anyone has any tips on how to get more time let me know

This game looks like something I would like. Does it have any game center achievements?

Not right now, but it does have Game Center leaderboards if you are the super competitive type! I love the game, and I am just waiting for the new game modes to come! It is worth trying out. It looks like it will only get better with time!

I was wondering why it hadn't shown up on TA yet, so I figured someone had to let everyone know about it! Glad to hear that more content is coming soon to the game! It is great, but I wish that the green (time) lanterns added more time. They seem to do almost nothing to the time unless you manage to string a ton of them together. Other than that, I love the game and I am thoroughly enjoying it! Great job again!

If you get a bunch of Level Up Lanterns together it usually spawns a whole bunch of Time Lanterns.
