imho, this one has a couple different modes that set it apart, the most fun being randomly generated levels that you can finish in 4 moves. In cross mode its fun to just sit there and play, knight mode is too hard for me

timed mode is hard at first too, but challenging.

It looks like there is a patent holder going after ALL "lights out" style games on the Appstore. We're looking into it now, and have set Togglights FREE while we investigate the claims. Get it now, it might not be up for much longer.

Direct link. (price change has not gone through yet at time of writing, please bear with us)

the patent doesnt read very well, it mentions a "device", dont software patents have to be specifically about them? oh well, im no patent lawyer, but free games for the win

Mode B is awesome btw!

Sorry for the delay. Yesterday no changes were being implemented on the Appstore. Togglights is now finally set to "free".
You can get it here for now. No idea for how long it will be up though.

Ah lame. I said it was annoying but it doesn't deserve to get pulled.

Just a side note, it isn't just Togglights that received the infringement notice, a bunch of games that look similar (havent played them so I cant say they are) have all received notice to take down their game, so expect a few games to be removed in the near future

Even if they're not similar to lights out, most indies don't have the money to hire a patent lawyer to deal with this kind of issue. Such a shame
