If you're a huge fan of the Tomb Raider franchise then you may have already come across Lara Croft: Guardian of Light, a top-down action game which tasks you with solving puzzles to progress through each area of the levels in the game. It isn't all about solving puzzles, though, as it is first and foremost an action game, and has plenty of it to go around thanks to the myriad of weapons you'll be able to equip, the enemies you'll counter with which to use those weapons on, and boss fights that will surely test your skills in combat.

The puzzles in Guardian of Light will be a little more complex and involve more elements to solve them than what you might find in something like Lara Croft GO, or UNCHARTED: Fortune Hunter, which should really delight those who enjoy solving a good puzzle. The game features some decent visuals in the graphics department, and employs the use of on screen touch controls for movement and ability use. While not all the weapons are listed, there does seem to be a fair amount of them that can be unlocked and picked up, and they're upgradeable as well if you feel they need a little bit more power. Lara will be able to use a spread of different weapons including an AK-47, a grenade launcher, and of course, dual pistols, the trademark weapon that is seen throughout the Tomb Raider franchise.

Although there may be a difference or two between this version of Lara Croft: Guardian of Light and the one that originally released for consoles years ago, most everything should be the same gaming experience, although it might feel a little more scaled down to fit the size of the displays for Android devices. Gamers will be able to choose between a single-player campaign mode, or Co-op mode for those who want to play with friends, which definitely should make the game a little bit more fun if you enjoy the multiplayer aspects of gaming. While the game does appear to offer in-app purchases, they don't seem to be a requirement for any of the gameplay at all. The game will also cost users a total of $3.99.
