General Information[]

  • The first game in the Lumines series.
  • Skins could have different HUDs, changing the counters' placement and font. This wouldn't happen again until Lumines: Puzzle & Music.
  • Licensed Skins have song/artist information at the bottom right of the screen.
  • The game features 48 Avatars, 13 of which are unlockable.
  • Several modes are available:
    • Challenge Mode, where the player levels up by clearing Squares, unlocking Skins in the process.
    • Single Skin Mode, where, as its name says, the player plays a single skin of their choice, with the game getting progressively harder as more Squares are cleared.
    • Time Attack Mode, where the player must clear Squares within a time limit of the player's choice. The time options are 60 seconds, 180 seconds, 300 seconds, and 600 seconds.
    • Vs. 2P Mode, where the player battles another player via ad-hoc.
    • Vs. CPU Mode, where the player battles ten rounds of CPU opponents, getting harder as the player progresses. Once a round is won, the Skin and Avatar featured in it are unlocked.
    • Puzzle Mode, where the player must build structures within a specific time limit.
  • The menu and credits background music, Welcome to the Club and Merci respectively, were composed by Takayuki Nakamura.
