Lots of variety in this roundup, so be sure to hit them before the offers expire. Chop-chop!
Optia isn’t your typical lasers-and-mirrors puzzle game. You decide when, and how many times, to fire the laser – and you’re not stuck with the same old mirrors! Reflect a beam back through a one-way mirror, split it in two (or four, or eight!) – and if you have to, sacrifice a mirror to clear a path to that last target.
With an elegant interface, intuitive gameplay, and gorgeous graphics, Optia’s 100 levels will keep you thinking for a long time.
