Akari Kagamine and the Luminous Bricks is a 1996 breakout action-puzzle arcade game developed by Seymour Games and published by El TV Kadsre Games for the arcade and by Drillimation Studios for the home console ports. The gameplay is similar to Touhou Reiiden: Highly Responsive to Prayers, but the characters are from Hinata Kazunori's novel Akari Kagamine and the Rainbow Mirror.
The main objective of the game is to complete each level by destroying all bricks on each stage. Players use Akari's powers to manipulate an orb around and destroy bricks. Akari's powers vary based on the power the player selects, players can change it later by collecting a "Transformation Card" from certain blocks, and upon collecting it, the effects happen immediately.
The game's soundtrack was composed by El TV Kadsre composer Ryota Yamada, who has also composed for the Technic Heroes films, which included scores that composed from Quest for the Masks III: The Mask of Light to Bionicle VIII: The Final Battle, with the samples being provided by demogroup Future Crew. Some of the songs are original compositions, while the themes for the last two worlds are remakes from the Technic Heroes series.
The game received generally favorable reviews from critics and holds a 74% on Metacritic based on 16 reviews. Critics praised the game for its art style and colorful graphics, but was criticized for being "just another breakout clone". El Kadsre Gaming also criticized the game for its similarities to Taito's Arkanoid Returns, but would suit a younger audience rather than a serious audience of gamers. Along with Akari Kagamine and the Stick of Alchemy, both games were featured in an episode of Angry Video Game Nerd.
