Now there's a new version available for iPhone, iPad and Android! Head to for download links!

Light-bot is back, more puzzling than ever! Use programmer-style logic to tell the bot how to light up all the blue tiles! Functions, conditionals, recursion, expert levels- many different features for new and old players.

Light-bot 2.0 is a collection of a lot of the ideas I received from the first one and I want to thank each and every supporter of the original game. This would not be the same game it is now without you all!

Big thanks to Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire ( m/) for creating an addictive soundtrack- one of the songs is a remix of the original Puzzling tune!

If you get stuck you can always check out the walkthrough made by the legendary Tasselfoot or roll over
the question mark in game to read a description of everything in the game.
Have Fun :)

Great Mind Twisting Game, But Some Minor Issues

This game is a wonderful game, if you want it to be..i think it could have done better to keep the player excited and interested to keep playing, because i hadnt felt it, i was bored in about 20 not saying its bad, ITS A FUCKING AMAZING PUZZLE GAME...but does not keep me interested enough. in this situation i will give this game a 8/10 because you deserve it and if the next one is better then a 10 i will give!

Ignore "expert" it's a mess, otherwise great game

When Lightbot 1 came out, I shared it with my whole programming team and we all had a blast with it. The first three level sets in lightbot 2 are much the same, a fun programming exercise, but the so called "expert" levels are more "Do it again Stupid" Headdesk messes than anything that could be called realistic programming. Maybe back in the old days of programming when there were competitions to cram the most program into the limited memory space available, you might see spaghetti code messes like the "correct" solutions to the expert levels. I understand that that's kind of what lightbot is, with your 16 command main routine and 2 8 command subroutines, but it throws any concept of elegant or understandable code right out the window, which is a shame because any programmer who has ever written code for others' use or that they plan to service for an extended time has learned the importance of these concepts. I would bet a great deal that your programming in the lightbot code looks nothing like the so called solutions to the "expert" puzzles.

Anyway, that's a huge rant just to say "I'd like to see more programming, less puzzle." Guess i got carried away. Now you whipper-snappers get off my lawn!
