We've worked our way up 100 Floors, maybe opened a few DOOORS along the way. So... now what? How about turning on some lights in here? A new point-and-click mobile puzzle game from Smarcle (which isn't officially related to either of the games above), 100 Lights, is all about bringing some illumination to dark situations, challenging you to turn on the lights in each level. The best part is the solutions are never spelled out for you, and you'll have to shake, twist and swipe your screen to figure out how things work!
Utilizing many of the iOS platform's unique features, 100 Lights drops level after single-screened level in front of you, each with some sort of light that needs to be turned on. Maybe it's a fire that needs to be kindled. Maybe it's a lamp, a torch, or a non-burning tree that's ready to be set ablaze? All you have to do is figure out how to use the on-screen elements to create a brighter situation. Tap, drag and swipe the screen to see what moves, and don't forget to use the device's accelerometer to bring some real-world movement in to play.
100 Lights really encourages you to think outside of the iPhone, and that's the kind of creative construction we love to see in our mobile games. The ads can be a bit annoying at times, but you can opt for an in-game purchase to remove them, so if they get too frustrating, there's a way to get rid of them. At the time of writing 40 levels are available, but the team at Smarcle seems to be releasing more at a steady pace, so that number should increase in the near future. Until then, ignore the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and turn on the lights!
