beem is a puzzle game based around directing a beam of light through targets and around obstacles to power a mysterious machine called the light engine. You can reflect, filter, and split light with a toolbox of mirrors, prisms, and crystal shards. so what's special about it? inside the light engine, a beam of light follows the laws of optical physics. reflect light at arbitrary angles - all 360 degrees of them! refract light into its component colors - and bring them back together! use light energy to power mechanical components to get parts moving again. what is the light engine? the light engine is an ancient and mysterious machine constructed deep in the surface of the planet. its primary function is unclear, but this only intrigues an explorer like yourself. delve into the darkness, and discover the secret of the light engine!

You base this game on the game Aargon for palmOS?

i wrote a flash version five years or so ago, before there were any decent light reflection games (why i made it to begin with). i didn't learn about the other ones till i submitted to the app store.

thanks for those of you playing! thanks for your feedback so far, there's a few things i'll bring up for this first windows version:

1. the game saves as you complete levels, so don't worry about losing your spot
2. mouse wheel rotation is on the todo list for next release

i'm pretty active on facebook for updates and art and random fun stuff too
