A German studio is set to release a Lumines
knockoff for the DS in Europe later this year -- Luminator
. We'll let you make your own Terminator/Schwarzenegger jokes about that one. The game has a fraction of the tracks and skins of the real thing -- only fifteen of each -- but the music has a distinct dark trance flavor that could be a nice change from the happy pop beats of Lumines
. The company promises the songs are "CD quality", but from the musical offerings
we've heard on the DS so far, we'll remain skeptical.
