The Game

In Magic Lanterns, your magical journey of addictive lantern-arranging fun stretches from Kyushu to Hokkaido, and all of Japan in between! Simple to play but surprisingly addictive, you can work at your own pace in the Zen-like Perfect Levels; but think well because you only have so many moves before the festival is over, and you must start again. Or, work fast in the Panic Mode gaining more time with each correct move. Or for the truly strategic, stretch your brain in the challenging Puzzle Mode. You can play through the complete Lantern Quest across Japan, or join the community and edit and share your levels with players around the world!
