Now there's a new version available for iPhone, iPad and Android! Head to light-bot.com for download links!

Updated game to have MEDALS :D
Updated game to include SAVE + LOAD. Make sure you have cookies enabled =)

Combining the puzzle-genre and basic programming logic, your job is to control a mini robot through the factory and light it all up. Quite quickly you will realize that basic forward logic isn't going to get the job done, and soon enough you will start thinking with functions and creating intricate bot commands to achieve the ultimate goal.

Enjoy,

I remember playing this game years ago when it had been available to iOS and Android. (those versions downloadable from there is a lot better and had better graphics, sounds and levels)
And so, in this version, needs to improve graphics and sounds - back then when it was on flash. This game is amazing and enhances logic!



I'm sure it's a fine game, but the way things operate and the rules of how things go are so convoluted that I spend most levels trying to figure out how to control the robot rather than how to beat the puzzle; especially with the Function1/2 options.

In most levels it's simply easier to be repetitive and spend an extra 10 minutes doing the whole thing than knitpicking the controls of exactly how you are to get everything to run.

It's irritating, to say the least, and if the shifty controls weren't bad enough, there's barely anything there to explain them, and nothing to actually explain HOW they work in conjunction, wherein my bot will follow the main commands and THEN the functions the first time, but upon repeating, without changing anything, it will perform functions and then commands.

If the 'puzzle' of this game is how to get your character to walk, good job, it's the best on the internet.



Great work! The simple graphics add to the overall atmosphere of the game and the motion animations are smooth and consistent. Excellent playability, with simple user interface being just complicated enough to allow for challenging puzzles. This game should be a benchmark for its genre, by which others are judged against!



I am stuck at lvl 8 but cool game



yea minimalist games with amazing thoughts are the best. one of the most amazing puzzle games out there.
