Luxuria Superbia Review - Unusual Journey



By  Yesi Livera     9:46 PM    Labels:,,,,,,,, 
It's bit awkward for me to play this game for the first time. I found something unusual, weird, strange here. Not caused by the music nor the gameplay but the text inside this game... Yes, those texts inside really made me feel "pervert" to play this game.. wut... heck no. I have no idea what's the story behind Tale of Tales for making this kind of game. No story, no enemies... it's all about pleasure.


At first, let me say if you should read the instruction or you won't get any feel to play this game. Here's the short description about this game:


A flower always starts out colorless.

But when you touch it, color fills the tunnel.

Stay in the glowing flower as long as possible!



Play slowly and gently to get a high score.

Just pushing through as fast as you can will result in failure.

The game wants you to take it easy and be playful.



Sounds simple.. huh? Yeah, but that's not the point of this game... Read that fourth sentence once again... Play slowly and gently to get a high score. I just abandoned this instruction at first, until I aware of something really.. really... mmm.. "You make me disappointed" "Let's do this again!" Wait... is this just me.. or it sounds like... hmmm *if you know what i mean...
as long as you play the game, you will read some unusual texts such as "Touch me", "Suck my berries", "Desire Me", "I give you everything". 


Enjoy unusual journey...


Well, nothing wrong with all of those messages... However, you read those messages while playing this game... and  you touch, touch and slide the screen like... That's weird for me.. but hey.. may be, I should repair my brain now... lol Alright, forget what I've said above (*I'm bit crazy after finished my exams)




Luxuria Superbia is a simple pleasure experience game. There're 12 levels inside this game. The next level will be unlocked once you got one circle (Bronze plate) in the previous level. However, it's not as quick as you might think. There's such as a gazebo with 12 pillars. It's showed the levels inside the game, and each pillar represent one color. Start from pink color and ended in dark purple. Everytime you play the game (level), you will fill the pillar with the level's color but it's not an easy step. At least, you should play 3-4 times with golden plate score to full fill the pillar.


Kiss Me... Touch Me.. Press Me...


The one that make Luxuria Superbia is very unique is the idea behind it. You need to color all the flower's walls but at the same time you may not play this too quick or you'll be failed. For the control, you just need to touch or slide (swipe). It supports multi-touch control, so use all your fingers (no.. just 4-6) to play this game easier, but remember... just enjoy your journey.. don't be too rush or you won't get anything. You should stay at the coloring wall and let the score increase by itself.




Jump over the buds by touching at them too and here the weird thing appear once again.. It's still okay if you see flower, bee, butterfly, tree inside a flower tunnel.. but how about candle, cake, owl, dolphin, until windows... yeah, it's unreasonable for me... can't imagine all of those things inside a flower. Hello... Miss.. wake up... it's a game, where anything is possible inside the game. The game is stopped when all of the walls have been colored by you. Anyway, I found a pretty funny text.. when you play the game too long.. Here's the text "You make me exhausted". Duh bro, what I've done to you? You make me feel guilty.. :P

In conclusion, actually Luxuria Superbia isn't a game... It's more about an experience and pleasure. An unusual journey which can't be said by words. It's not for everyone too, but if you curious enough to feel the pleasure inside, you should check this game for sure ;)
