This is a puzzle game that starts easy but gets a lot more complicated later on. I found the levels in “The Cave of Fire ” very hard to solve, it has monsters that come back to life, which made it way more complicated. I enjoyed this game a lot, and it is easy to reset a puzzle when you find yourself on the wrong path.

There is one major downside and that is the controls. I started first with a controller, that made movement easy, but throwing the spear failed 8 out of the 10 times. Lara just didn’t want to throw it. after that, I switched to the mouse, which makes throwing the spear so much easier, but then you have to deal with the fact that this game was made for touch devices. You’ll have to “swipe” your mouse to move Lara. This still was better than her not throwing her spear, so I stayed with using the mouse, and I got used to this swiping thing in the end
