Lara Croft GO Walkthrough in Progress

Lara Croft GO, a gorgeous turn-based puzzle game for mobile devices and tablets, was released yesterday on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone/PC/Tablet. I've started on a walkthrough which you can access here:

If you don't own a compatible device, it's possible to buy and play the game on Windows or Mac using the BlueStacks Android emulator. Check out my BlueStacks video. This shows the setup for Lara Croft Relic Run, but GO works the same way.

UPDATE: A few players have informed me that this game does not save correctly in BlueStacks. So you may want to hold off on trying this method for now. I'll post an update here if I discover a solution.

8/30/15: No solution to the BlueStacks issue yet, but the ever-resourceful Roli from TombRaider.hu has informed me that the Andy Android emulator runs the game perfectly, saves your progress, and even syncs with your other devices if you choose. Windows 8/10 users may also want to try the Windows app. Apparently it doesn't run on every device, so check the reviews. I have had no trouble so far running it on a Windows 8.1 PC.

Lara Croft GO was developed by Square Enix Montréal, creators of the critically acclaimed Hitman GO, as well as the new Hitman Sniper. I may post a review at some point, but overall I am very impressed with the game and am enjoying it immensely. I encourage you to check out my past Lara Croft GO coverage and have a peek at the short launch video below. If you're playing the game or have beaten it, I'd love to hear what you think. Please post (spoiler-free) comments below, or Tweet me @Stellalune.
