Description

You are stuck in a tower of loops, you use mirrors and a laser to reflect the laser on the two of the loops present in the room at the same time to destroy them and make your way. You can only use 5 mirrors at the same time.

Controls:- WASD or Arrow keys to move. Left click to shoot laser. Right click to place mirror facing the mouse arrow. Press E while touching the mirror to remove it.

Credits:- Game by Matin. Reflect code by Rilin.

    The way things worked weren't that intuitive and I feel like the idea could have gone way further than that, but that's a really good entry!

    Once you learn how mirrors work, the rules were consistent and puzzles felt pretty good. It's a shame the game isn't more polished!

    I think one thing that could help a lot is reducing the possibility of placement, and having the mirror exist for only 8 directions. Unless you really want to make puzzles that require fine tuning, but in that case, placement need to be more precise. Maybe having a "ghost mirror" that you can still move before releasing the button to confirm placement.

    I wish there was a way to just reset an entire level, instead of having to go to each mirror and press a button to remove it~

      I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for playing! :)

    This was pretty neat and a cool idea, I just wish the instructions had been a little more clear. I thought I had to restart the game when I placed a bad mirror until I saw the E prompt. It's a fun little puzzler and a solid entry

    I very like the mirror idea and its implementation. I enjoyed this game :)

    Btw I would change the mirror placement a little, because it is hard to place the mirror next to the wall.

    I didn't know how to play? I mean i watched the GIF and was like... ok i can do this but the mirrors didn't go how i wanted them to go so i was stuck in a loop of trying to get the mirrors to place right xD the game looks good from the GIF and stuff but i could get past the first part :'( xD

      Haha! You could just remove them by touching them and pressing E. Thanks for playing! :)

    I like this idea, but the controls were a bit challenging to figure out. It was difficult to place mirrors where I wanted them at first. Also, in the description you have R to remove mirrors whereas in the game it's E. I'm not sure I would have got the hang of it without the GIFs on this page. A good enhancement may be to have the player carrying a mirror at all times, so you can see where it's going to go. I also found it counter-intuitive that you could get lasers to bounce off mirrors by shooting at their backs.

      Whoops! Thanks for pointing that out, I fixed the description now. I'm glad you played it. Thanks for the review. :) Btw, you can check where the mirror/laser would go when you shoot laser.
