Cartesian is a unique puzzle-platformer with lasers as its core mechanic. Use lasers to reflect, push, destroy, and more as you search for your lost crew-mates.

I finished it after 3h playing and I'm sad that its over!

This game is just great! The level design, the bosses, the mechanics - it works fluently!

I'm amazed!

To be serious, I never played it before, because the graphic was so terrible.

But man, now after I gave it a chance I'm in love!

5/5 Stars, never had so much fun playing a game on newgrounds! :D
