State of Play's new puzzle adventure title Lume might be made out of cardboard cutouts but it is in no way a one-dimensional game.
When the lights mysteriously go out in the colorful paper and cardboard world of Lume, it is up to protagonist Lumi (if you find that name cute, you'll like the game, it's a pretty cute also) to solve a series of puzzles her mysteriously missing grandfather has left for her. Solving puzzles grants access to a series of locked rooms, essential items and other goodies that will help Lumi in her quest.
You control little Lumi as she explores her grandfather's house and backyard. You are stuck at the house for the entire game essentially even though you have knowledge of the town over yonder. The setting may be geographically limited to about five to six rooms sans the puzzle screens, but that's not a bad thing (especially if you like escape from the room games).

If the idea of running your own nightclub gets you excited, then Tapulous's latest iOS game might have you dancing around with joy.
Ever walk into a nightclub, it's blindingly colourful, full of guys in football jerseys and blonde girls with eyes the size of saucers and the DJ is playing Lady Gaga mixes over and over, and think how much better you could run the club yourself? Well there's a new game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad just for you, courtesy of Tapulous, the company behind the hugely successful Tap Tap Revenge iPhone music game.
The firm's latest title, ClubWorld, is a free tycoon-style game in which you play a nightclub owner, hiring bartenders, DJs and door people and collecting money from your clientele to spend on decor, dance floors and drink menus for your club. Think Farmville crossed with The Sims but aimed at trendy young things rather than stay-at-home mothers.
