From the official website:
"OverLight is an addictive game with an unique concept using glass blocks and laser beams - you break the right blocks, lasers get redirected and intersect, overheat and explode the blocks for which you receive points. You can even chain the explosions into combos, but you must think fast, the clock is ticking! Your goal is old classic: Get as many points as possible.
The game also contains various other features to enhance the gameplay and make it more rich and varied - special blocks, power-ups, power-downs (nasty pests!) and variety of levels in several game modes:
Arcade mode - you collect points and progress through levels with increasing difficulty until you loose
Time Attack - play individual levels for a limited amount of time and try to get highest score possible!
Clean Up - try to get rid of all the blocks in the scene with as little moves as possible
Puzzle - solve a pre-arranged puzzle made out of blocks"
Why I suggest it:
I'm not all that big of a fan of games like this, but I keep finding myself firing up the demo at times when I can't make a definite decision on what to play. Maybe it's just the bright visuals and the cool sound effects, or perhaps it's the clever glass/laser game mechanic, but there's something about OverLight that really makes it a joy for me to play. Seems like a good fit for IGS, in my opinion.
