How do you play? What are u supposed to do?

The goal of the game is to turn of all the lights.
When you 'click' a light, this light and the one above, under, left and right from it switch from their current status to the oposite status.
It's very simpel and easy to learn.

I'm afraid I don't get it. How do you know which ones are on and which ones are off? Some of them look slightly more solid than others for a little bit, but then their flash pattern is like all the rest. Do you have to 'catch' them before they change? More importantly, how do you not get nauseated playing it?

Yellow means that the light is on. When you click an a light (on/off... yellow/white) it will change... you'll see a transition (the lights fade in or out and they grow or shrink)... after this transition you can click another light... and so on...

here's an example of a little game (1 means on, 0 means off)

1 0 1 1
1 1 0 1
1 0 0 1
0 0 1 1

when i click the right corners (let's say the upper first)... I get this:

1 0 0 0
1 1 0 0
1 0 0 0
0 0 0 0

(note: you can click any light during the game... on or off doesn't matter)

to finisch this game a click the left light on the second row

0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0

That's it! Try it by clicking a random light and guess what will happen... did you guess right? Then you can play for real smiley... the rules are easy, the challenge (level 6 orsmileynotsmiley
