NOVA Help!

In NOVA there is a part where you have to turn off the nuclear reactors (or something like that)

It requires you to do the little puzzle like diffuser thing. Have you guys beaten that part? I don't really get the concept (and never took time to figure it out ). If you could post a picture showing what the pattern looks like that would be a big help!

Thanks guys!

First of all, post a screen shot of the exact bot you're on. Secondly, i think you have to place the mirrors accordingly. A laser should reflect off them and destroy the reactors. I could he wrong jut a screenie would help!

To elaborate...
A mirror reflects the beam 90, and rotates with a tap. The squares give off light in all 4 directions if you hit them in one. The goal is to get the light, given off by the blue item, into the green item, without any of the light hitting the red items. Or is this the wrong puzzle?

Anyways, put a 2 boxes in front of the thing that shoots out the light; one as far away as possible and one that is one square closer. Then, put 2 mirrors on the edges to reflect the light down to the lower green boxes.

You`ll have to rotate the mirrors too. You can rotate them 90 degrees by touching the mirror.

I understand the concept and got through all of the other ones up to this point. I just don't know what is wrong with me on this one.

shooter-------- x x

this should be how you set it up. where the x's are the cross thingies and the diagonals are the redirecters.

I am so mad for using all my ammo to kill the abomination, forgot to shoot the head the first time, so had to do it again and so now I only have a pistol and sniper rifle to defend the car on the next level.
