I hope you vote me up for July's best games! :D

The power goes out in your lab while you're doing experiments. You must solve 23 difficult puzzles where you turn on all of the lights in each level.
You may slide batteries and crates, place wiring, blow up TNT and more! Please remember to press Z to undo :P

This was made for the mini Ludum Dare competition #36 hosted by Folis. The theme was "Contrast." I had less than 6 days to make this game. What fun!

Woah! Thanks everyone for daily 3rd, and thank you Tom for the homepage!

Also, congrats to Shantom for being the first to finish the game!

Here's a complete walkthrough:

Got as far as lvl 14, will play more later. Great puzzle game with some hard challenges (Just as a side note I though lvl 7 was the easiest lvl other than 1 and 5. Maybe I just got lucky)

Zanzlanz responds:

Wow nice job :)
Some levels are easier to others - it's weird ;)

Anyone have any idea how to get past level 2? its goddamn infuriating me at the moment!

People find this review helpful!
Zanzlanz responds:

Make sure all the batteries are on a light bulb, and you don't put wire were it isn't necessary. Just try to be efficient.
I know you'll figure it out ;)

Got to level 13, will continue tomorrow.

Level 2 - Unexpected :D
Level 7 - Mindfu*k

And yeah, the levels are pretty messed up when it comes to challenge :) 4/5

Zanzlanz responds:

Great job! Thanks for playing! Level 7 is hard, but certainly not the hardest :)

i really cant find the right way for lvl 8 i keep looking and thinking trying but really i cant get passed it but its a nice game ;)

Zanzlanz responds:

Blow up right TNT, then left TNT. Push the top one over to the right once. Push the last one over to the right once, and blow it up. The battery is free!
Place the wiring first (connect the light to the wire), and then push the battery into place. Bam!

A nice challenging game. I managed to beat all lvls somehow but I gotta say that some of these puzzles were very difficult, and many of them were done in a smart way. Good job :P

There was one annoying thing though. I don't know if it's a problem with the controls or the way you programmed this game but sometimes the characters pushes the boxes way too fast. I mean it wasn't my intention to push that box but when I go close to it, it get pushed. Then I have to restart the whole puzzle again. It happened a lot, compared to other games I've played before. You can fix this problem by either adding some sort of delay before/while pushing the box (less than half a sec but it still counts as a delay) or you can add some undo button (undo last move).

I also noticed that some lvls weren't as difficult as the one before. For example, lvl 21 was a joke compared to many previous lvls. But I guess this is a minor issue; I mean maybe some people found it difficult? I don't know :P

Overall great game. I really enjoyed these challenges.
Keep em coming :3

Zanzlanz responds:

Wow fantastic job Shantom! You're the first I heard to solve all of the levels! Congratulations!

Oh well you do know there's undo! Press Z to undo the last thing you did! I can't believe you didn't use it! (It tells you in levels 1 and 2). Ouch well sorry you didn't notice that xD

Yes I'm not the master at level design, to be honest. Some levels turned out a lot easier. But you're right - the levels are more and less difficult for different people because all people think differently.

Thanks so much for playing! :)
