Laser Link is a pretty exciting puzzle game for Windows Phone, thanks to which you do not have to think what to do in your spare time. In this game, you will have to manipulate laser beams or facilities that emit them. The essence of the game is that you need to illuminate a few glass balls by leading the rays right through them. Of course, in real life the beam would deflect after the first ball and wouldn't go any further, but here is the game where you can omit some laws of physics which gives you an opportunity to strain your brain over a difficult puzzle.
GameplaySo, in the first few levels there will be nothing complex, because there is a small number of balls and all of them will be located in straight lines. Moreover, all the elements radiating laser beams, can be moved across the playing field. After a while, the number of balls will increase, and with it there will increase also the number of elements emitting laser beams. However, the balls will begin to settle down on the playing field more chaotically, and in order to touch them all with the beam, you will have to think carefully.
In some cases, you will have to be content with just touching the balls with a beam, as their location on the playing field won't allow you to lead the beam through the center of the ball. You will have to move the laser beam machines literally millimeter by millimeter while looking for the most advantageous position. Over time, stationary laser systems will emerge on the playing field that you won't be able to move anymore. Many might be scared away with this fact, especially, given the fact that there will be even greater amount of balls and not a whisper of the order on the playing field.
Not as bad as it may seemIn fact, the laser beam machines that cannot be moved, render you an invaluable service, because if they were moving too, you would have to look for another place for them. And in our case, you can be absolutely sure that the item is exactly in the right place. In total, the game consists of 100 levels, but it has a mode that allows you to create new challenges. However, in the free version the panel with spare parts is as if by accident covered by an advertising banner, therefore this feature is fully available only after paying a nominal sum of money for the game.
ResumeIn the game setting there is an option to change the color of the laser from green to blue, red or purple. The graphics in the game are quite decent. The sound quality is also pretty good and, despite a certain monotony, it every second reminds us that we are dealing with laser beams precisely.
