House of Mirrors for Linux description
The game consists of a 2D grid in which several types of objects are found, including detectors and mirrors. The goal is to light up all the detectors using emitted or reflected rays of light. Usually, you can move and rotate the mirrors but not the detectors. In each level, the choice of available objects is limited. Note that there may be more than one solution for each level.

Levels can be created by users and shared with others. If you do create any, do share it with us.

Differences from Chromatron

- In HoM there are fewer restrictions on what can be rotated or moved. For example, some light-sources and detectors might be moveable, while there might be some mirrors in a level that are fixed! This leads to, IMO, more interesting game play.
- HoM is multi-platform. It should work on all platforms supported by Java
- HoM is open-source.

How to Play: a quick how-to
