The Light Inside Us is an abstract, tactical shooter set in an isometric world where light is sentinent. You shoot rays of destructive light with parts of your body and gain them back as you kill the enemies. Each shot counts and wasteful shots are not easily forgiven. In this abstract world, the aim is for “the children of light” to unite to form the “Light Warrior” to rescue their kidnapped mother, all in 55 levels.
