    A Lights Out/Fiver clone

    It's back!! The ipk may now be found in the App Gallery!
    http://www.precentral.net/homebrew-apps/lights-out

    Please continue to post issues/suggestions in this thread. Thanks for all the support!


    Lights Out v0.2.0 (8/1)

    • Initial release

    Lights Out v0.3.0 (8/2)
    • New dark theme
    • Added background image
    • Removed header
    • Cleaned up code
    • Added Help scene (currently empty)
    • Changed application menu
    • Changed level selection button
    • Game should no scroll now
    • Reset button now resets game board to last selected level

    Lights Out v0.3.1 (8/2)
    • Minor bug fixes
    • Fixed help screen version


    Lights Out v0.4.0 (8/10)
    • Added random game mode NOTE: some random sets MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE TO WIN!
    • Game now starts with all lights in off state
    • Reset button now functions correctly, and will reset random mode to last randomly generated set
    • Changed button style
    • Added counter for number of moves when victorious
    • Added functionality to check if randomly generated set has a solution


    This is my first webOS application. I initially started working on it as a learning experience, but once I got the JavaScript port working, I couldn't stop! I feel as though the game has reached a point where I can release it (it's playable, and is sort-of webOS-ified).

    How to play

    Pressing one of the lights will toggle it and the four lights adjacent to it on and off. (Diagonal neighbors are not affected.) The game provides a puzzle: to switch all the lights off, preferably in as few button presses as possible.

    Known Issues

    To Do

    • Add help scene (with game play instructions)
    • Add high scores/leaderboard
    • Move difficulty selector
    • Remove header
    • New icon
    • Name change?
    • Improve button graphic
    • Implement random game mode

    Awesome! I've always had a special place in my heart for this game, and from what I've played so far, works perfectly! Thank you so much!

    Suggestions/Requests:

    -Either make the difficulty option a button next to the reset button, or put it in the dropdown menu. Seems kind of confusing with just the word there.
    -A timer and a high score leaderboard would be great.
    -An undo button/option would be fantastic.

    BUG: When I select the Easiest difficulty, it changes the board to only 3 lights on. But when I want to restart the puzzle and press "Reset", it turns on all the lights. It should go back to the starting default configuration (in this case, only 3 lights turned on).

    Or was that done on purpose? If so, may I suggest a restart button?

    Yeah, I think difficulty and reset should go in the App Menu (the top left corner) and then you have room in case a notification comes in too, and then you don't have to worry about the scene scrolling.

    But still, this is fun (and difficult).

    Yeah, so I used to could do this as a kid. Right now I'm beginning to doubt I still have that same brain ability. Anyway thanks for a game I'll play! Well till I beat it anyway.

    First I thought there is no way to turn all lights of, but you can ... I can't wait to give this to my kids - that'll blow their mind !

    Thanks, enormous -

    Definitely needs a move counter and highscore table. But a great game none the less. very sleek and simple.

    Thanks a bunch for the game, it works wonderful. Definitely brings me back to my childhood when I had the game.

    Just a heads up, when you updated to 0.3 the "about" page still shows 0.2.

    One idea you may want to do (and I think this may be how the game was when I had it as a kid, but it's been so long I forget) is have a simple "random" thing to turn lights on instead of the preprogrammed levels you currently have. So, basically the random function can randomize the number of lights on as well as their locations, if a person doesn't like the one generated they hit generate again and again until they get one they like. That way it's a never ending game people can play.

    Keep up the great work, it looks wonderful and functions amazingly.
