Lasers and mirrors


I heard about this game a long time ago (damn you Metafilter), but I didn’t get around to playing it till this week. Oh. My. Goofness. I am addicted. Addicted! And I’m determined to get through all the levels. I was so stumped by level 17, I found some spoilers. Shh!

So let me get all meta and bore you with my opinions of these premieres.
