A simple demo applet
You can try the following Lights Out applet.
The position posed is a solvable one,
but in boards of size 5x5,
there are many non solvable states.
This applet is a simple version of Lights Out.
You can find many, much better ones, following the links below.
- Matthew Baker,
Lights Out Games.
Several links and information
on this and other similar games.
- Ken Barr,
Lights Out Fan Club.
As above, several links and information.
- Carsten Haese,
paper appeared in the sci.math newsgroup in 1998,
It shows how to solve the game using algebra.
- Óscar Martín-Sánchez and
A Visual Basic Implementation of Lights Out.
Very complete program for playing Lights Out
in boards of different sizes and features.
