Summary

Tenebra is a very good puzzle style game with a simple and effective graphical style. While not overly difficult, the core puzzle design of positioning sources of light in a way to reach exits is quite clever. I like how additional puzzle elements are gradually introduced every two or three levels – keeping the game fresh at all times.

Adding hazards to the game would add more depth to the puzzles, and including a backing atmospheric music track would add so much to over the overall experience.

Tenebra only features 25 levels and I wish there were a lot more – which goes someway to saying that Tenebra was a thoroughly absorbing game and well worth a play.
