    • Basics
      • This is a puzzle platformer game based on the concept of reflecting light beams.
        • You control a knight who must push things around the stage & use its own body to redirect light flow to open the exit door and create a path to the exit.
      • Most stages require you to primarily think about how to redirect light flow.
        • Some stages require you to repeatedly make a sequence of specific moves where you go back and forth to slowly adjust moving platforms, or to activate a platform and then pass across it.
    • Features
      • Windows – where the light pours into the room from.
      • Light beam – can be directed in a variety of ways.
      • Knight – the character who moves things around the stage to activate them. The knight can also kneel down and lean to act as a mirror which can redirect light beams in many different directions.
      • Mirrors – can be used to redirect light beams.
      • Moving platforms – can be used to carry items, to stand on, or to help you access hard to reach areas.
      • Light-activated platforms – turn solid (so that you can stand on them) and block light flow when their activators receive sunlight.
      • Boxes – you can stand on them to reach other platforms or put yourself in a light beam. On some stages you may also place other objects atop them to change the elevation of light steams.
      • Exit doors – where you exit the stage. You must activate a light sensor to open the doors.
      • Activator switches – the items which receive light to switch light-activated platform states, move moving platforms, or open doors. Some activators only need activated once, while others must receive a constant stream of light to stay active.
    • Levels
      • This game has 12 levels. All are unlocked at the start of the game.
        • You can play the levels in any order, but it is recommended to play them in order since they get more complex as you progress through the game.
        • You can go back and replay previously levels at any time.
      • Winning vs losing
        • You beat a level by activating the light receptor which opens the door and then passing through the open door.
        • Some light receptors only need activated once, while others require a constant source of light to keep the door open.
    • Tips
      • Try to activate a sensor and then cut off the light flow to see if you need to keep it active or not.
        • Don’t be afraid to make a mistake as the levels are short and you can always use the Escape button to restart a level.
      • Try filling from the opposite angle if you have trouble filling a light sensor while rotating clockwise or counterclockwise.
      • Many levels can be completed multiple different ways.
        • If you get stuck check out the screenshots below to see working solutions to all 12 levels.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like logic puzzle games.
