Two Minute Drill – LightUp

We gave you a preview of LightUp awhile back, but now that the full version is available we wanted to give you a more in-depth view of what it has to offer.

Basically, you trace a path from one square to the next to turn every square blue. Start on the green square and move to the white squares. In normal mode, you aren’t able to overlap any squares – you’re only allowed to touch each square once in order to win the level. The other modes, multi and backtrack, offer other options for game play. Multi bisects the puzzle into two paths to where you have two starting points and two ending points. Backtrack allows you to overlap squares in order to reach ones that you normally would get stuck trying to get, but works this function into where you usually have to overlap at least once in order to win. If you get stuck, you can always either shake your phone or press menu to restart the level.

Right now the full version is 50% off at $1.99, though I’m not sure how long that will last. It offers 125 unique levels. The lite version allows you to play each different mode and each level of difficulty, but there are fewer levels available overall. You must beat the easy levels on normal mode before you are able to progress to the other modes and levels of difficulty.

My favorite part of it is the funky galaxy music. Clark likes to make fun of me when I get stuck on the hard levels, but I’m usually able to figure it out after a number of tries. Take a crack at it and let us know what you think.
