this is a puzzle game that you need to make all bulbs light up, can you do it?

Great Game

Great premise, very original. Great art, better than a bunch of stuff on here. My only complaint is that I don't feel the music goes with it. But still, great game.

Very creative

Nice work on this one, it's creative, easy to understand and the background music makes it very calming.

5/5 10/10

Relaxing and satisfying :)

If the desired effect was to create a relaxing and satisfying puzzle game, then you have achieved that superbly!
It wasn't too challenging, but just enough so that when i figured out the solution to each level, it was rewarding in a way that only puzzle games (and untangling fishing lines) can be. The puzzles are made in such a way that the solutions are always elegant - albeit in varying degrees - and rewardingly aesthetic.
Apart from being a little too short, the only gripe i have (and it is a small one) is that the physics were perhaps a teency weency bit rough - so that when the bulbs were stationary they jiggled a little crazily, which only 'once' led to me just missing one bulb that needed lighting up.
Overall, i would say a well made game. A good, original concept, smoothly executed. I'd love to see more levels and more mechanisms added in perhaps a sequel... It's a reasonably fresh idea, so there's lots to explore. A short-fused bulb that shuts lighted ones down again, or a heavier bulb that shatters others when it lands on them from a height, are a couple of examples of ideas you could explore. I'm sure there's lots more.
I liked the music too, although it was a bit short and i did turn it off just before i got all the way through. And i could swear i've heard it somewhere before - i'm thinking on a Tommy Emmanuel cd... In any case it was perfect for the atmosphere of the game and was, i thought, the proverbial icing on the imaginary cake.
Top stuff, mate!
...mmm i really want cake now.

was very satisfying, 19 was a lot harder but with trial and error I was able to finish it.

Holy cow

This is incredible. The music is great, and the pace at which the game runs is fast enough to keep interest, but slow enough to seem relaxing. And I mus say, leve 1 was really cool

Nice game

Interesting idea. Could use some optimisation so it runs a little faster. I'd like to see a sequel with many more levels,and some more ball types to keep things interesting. Well done though - a really good game!

great game

it's a great game very relaxing but when I play level 16 the bulbs are supposed to touch and nothing is between them and they are very close to each other interfering the chain reaction of lighting up other bulbs. but nobody else mentioned it in there review so I think I'm just doing the level wrong.

great game.

This kept me playing for long enough to beat it, and considering the difficulty of the latter levels, that's saying something. The only suggestion i could make is to add a few other song in the same vein for background music. The one song wears on the nerves after a bit, but it does fit the mood well.

5/5 , 9/10 because of the slight lacks of graphics and only one song
finished it quite fast , and that's saying a lot , i almost never finish games :D

issue with lvl 16

I'm having the same issue as Niekepiek

I beat 16...

...but the way to do it is a little counter intuitive. I think the author built this level around a physics engine glitch....not cool. Other wise, good game.

Pretty good

It took me awhile to understand this game as the instructions were not clear, but it took off when I did. This is in fact one of the most unique puzzle games I have encountered in awhile. I was interested to discover which bulbs I had to do to get the two of them to touch. This game seems so simple, but it has complicated gameplay. I really like the music, particularly with how it seems so country like playing with light bulbs. This is not the best, but it is a pleasant little game made with good intentions.

lol at least my way works,

i beat the game and afterwards was looking at the reviews, i saw that many people were having problems with 16, well i went to the walkthrough, and tried what i saw. it didn't work. what i did is removed the bulb one down and left of the lit bulb, creating a arch between the lit bulb and the other blank, than placed the jumper one and to the right, 2/3 times worked.

was a good time waster but with only twenty levels i went through it pretty quick, i cant say anything about the music as i have no sound here. but other than that was ok.
