Bridger Maxwell of Fiery Ferret has posted a video demo of his upcoming puzzle game Lumen for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The objective of the game is to manipulate a colored laser beam to pass through specific checkpoints in the puzzle. This is accomplished by adding a set of mirrors and color filters to the level to achieve the desired goal. A $10 shareware version of the game is already available for the Mac and PC.

The game pulls from an online database of 1200 user-created levels that range from Easy to Hard. Levels are also saved locally on your iPhone in case you want to play but are not internet-connected.

Maxwell hopes to release the game at the time of the iTunes App Store launch and will be pricing the game at $5.

A Youtube video provides a walkthrough of the basic gameplay:

    I personally don't find myself playing these sort of puzzle games on my desktop computer... but I think they are perfect for the iPhone.

      I think it was definitely an influence.

      But now you can play the REAL Aargon on your iPhone, it's the original game with a slick new interface and new puzzles.

      Visit Aargon iPhone, for a video and links to the App Store.

        In my message above I didn't mean to imply Lumen copied Aargon and I have no idea if they've even seen Aargon, they just have some similarities so if you enjoy one you will probably enjoy the other. Lumen is a great game and so is Aargon.

    um.. i hate to be a spoil sport but... this isn't how optics work. red plus blue equals purple for pigments but not for lasers. lasers have only one frequency, a blue filter would stop the laser completely. Good game and game concept though. No one will notice. : )

    The worth is similar as what I might have paid at my local supplier however I saved on not having to drive 1 hour each technique to decide the merchandise up. The product is the geniune article, simply what I wanted. It came quick and in good condition. Will definately order again.
