CNET Editors' reviewIn Lightspeed, your task is to illuminate spheres by directing laser beams along reflective material and through translucent objects. You're not playing against the clock or another player--it's just you and the principles of physics. Precision is key: If you turn a mirror too much, the beam may go completely off the board. The austere graphics portray the mirrors, reflectors, absorbers, and maze walls clearly. Even if you aren't very good at physics, the introductory levels systematically explain each game element. If you get stuck on a level, the Demo button shows you the solution. Like many games do, the trial version locks the medium and advanced levels, along with the level editor. After you tear through the trial levels in a half hour, Lightspeed may still become your favorite physics puzzle game.
From Cubiform Games Lab:
If you think physics is boring, we can prove you wrong. Lightspeed, a game once born in a research lab, is now becoming more and more popular. The game rules are really quite simple. There is a light source that emits light (laser ray). You have different game elements that can absorb, reflect, refract, or transmit light. Your job is to manipulate them (move and rotate) to illuminate all spheres present in the game level. It may sound simple (and it is at the very beginning), but the game gets to be increasingly complex and engaging as you move further. The game is quite reminiscent of the once very popular Incredible Machine and is equally addictive. If you really fall in love with the game, you don't have to worry about the game ever ending, because Lightspeed comes with own built-in level editor.

"Deflektor comes to Windoze."
Version: Lightspeed 1.2
The comment "The game is quite reminiscent of once very popular Incredible Machine and is equally addictive." is in reference to the Commodore 64 & the Amiga line of computers. I absalutely LOVED this game for the Amiga!!!! It's nice to see it here. It's not an exact version of it, but it's pretty close & if you've ever played Deflektor you'll remember the fun times you had (or may even still have). However, if you've never played Deflektor with the Amiga, then you're in for a treat...it's a lot of fun. Give this game a try. I'll challenge your mind & also give you some nice looking eye-candy. It's a nice clone from the "once very popular Incredible Machine"; the Amiga. :)
