Black Out: Coming soon to an App Store near you.

Now available on iTunes!

Black Out is a clone of a classic handheld game made by Tiger Electronics in the mid-1990's. In Black Out your goal is to turn all the lights that are on to black. This is done by touching any light, which will change its status, as well as the four adjacent lights (up, down, left and right), from on to off or from off to on.

There are many ways to complete each level in Black Out, so how you beat it is entirely up to you. Black Out keeps track of your total moves taken, total levels completed and your highest level completed. At any time all of these stats can be reset

Black Out's initial release has 50 levels included. An update already in the works doubles this to 100 levels as well as a level creator.

Is this like Lights out? If so, I'll have to get it. Love these kinds of things.

Blackout looks interesting. I might have to pick it up. I'm sure users will be very happy with the level editor too. That is a nice feature in any game

Just wishing you good luck with a smooth release.

Thanks for the kind words. I am really excited about this application, it is probably the most polished app that I've put together ever.
