Laser Puzzle

ArtbegottiLaser Puzzle by Dobes Vandermeer is one of those games where you get what it says on the tin: a laser-based puzzle where you've got to direct colored laser beams to the proper receptors. The twist here is that rather than dropping mirrors willy-nilly across the grid, you're given a series of wheels that must be rotated into the correct positions (click each wheel to rotate it). Some wheel segments have double-sided mirrors that redirect beams, others have colored filters that only allow a certain color to pass through. If there's one major downside to Laser Puzzle (aside from the lack of colorblind-friendliness), it's that the game is only fifteen levels long. It introduces a novel concept to a familiar game and lures you in with its clever design, but then ends right at the moment you become hooked and crave more. Nevertheless, it's an interesting puzzle with a fresh take on a simple idea that is well worth a portion of your coffee break time.

I'm on level 15 right now. What do you mean by only 5 levels long? [Yep, it looks like more levels were added between the time I wrote the review and it being posted. Thanks for spotting that! --Steve]

Indeed on the short (and a leeeeetle bit easy) side, and the possibility to mix colors that appears but isn't used in any puzzle kind of calls for more levels and different challenges.

But it's quite a charming game, and well designed! I hope we'll see more of it, or from the same developer.

This is a nice little game. Not too long, just short enough though more levels where the mixing of colors could be a rather welcomed thing.

Why did that feel like I was playing a Zelda game? Oh yeah, ripped "item get" tune.

Apart from that, it was a fun little puzzle game, but a bit simple.

Short but fun--would like to see more of this. :)

Odd, the lasers don't appear for me. I can spin the wheels and see them turn on and off but the actual beams aren't traversing the screen. I'll reload, again.

Okay, now they appear in level 5, but not in levels 1-4. I'll keep playing and see if they keep appearing.

Really easy. Saw the potential for mixed color lasers but they never game. Quite disappointed on that part. Other than that, great game to play during a 10-15 min break.

On level 11 now, lasers still not showing up consistently and never from point of origin to point of termination. On the current level, no lasers to be seen. Win XP Pro running FF browser.

I'm a little scared; what do I need a year's supply of oxygen for???

Most of the levels are completely trivial to solve; they barely even count as tutorials. the last few had some substance, but where still extremely easy. I don't see much point to a puzzle game without actual puzzles.

It looks like the developer is constantly expanding and refining the game. Now it's got 19 levels, and the graphics-- the mirrors in particular-- no longer look like they do in the game banner.

Wow, the game now has more than 50 levels (that's where I stopped playing) and the graphics have completely changed, and the game is now called LazerBeans.
It's interesting to see that it's still being updated.
More levels might be a good thing, but the pace is awfully slow.
