NOTE: Optia syncs progress across devices! Please see below for directions.
Optia is a beautiful, immersive physics game about reflected light. You must activate all targets in each level with a laser beam, powering the transition to the next.
Fortunately, your puzzle-solving instincts come in handy here! Using a clever assortment of mirrors, you can reflect a beam in any direction, split it into two separate beams (or four, or eight, or sixteen...), and if you must, sacrifice your own laser to clear a path to that last target.
And Optia doesn't end there! After cutting your teeth on the main campaign, you can create your own levels and upload them for others to play.
With 100 main levels, more than one thousand user-created levels, and a polished ecosystem for creating, playing, and rating new levels, you never really need to stop playing Optia. And you can decide if that's a good thing.

TIPS & TRICKS
- To sync levels across devices, unlock the level editor by completing 30 levels. Then, in the Editor level menu (the wrench icon), create an alias and a password. Finally, load Optia on your second device, go to the Editor menu, and log in.
- Load a previously solved level with its solution by tapping the level's colored dot in the level menu.
- When scrolling through the level menu, tap the Optia logo to jump back to the level you're currently playing.
Updated for iOS 11!

Why can't I start a game
Update2: FYI– to return to an already completed level from the "levels" menu, you have to tap the tiny little colored dot at the right side of that level's title bar. I don't know why it's not possible to just tap anywhere in the area of the level name, but this kind of unexplained and super-fussy interface stupidity is mostly Apple's fault, since they stopped enforcing the iOS UI minimum tap-target size requirements long ago. Some developers also like to get cute with their UI's in this way and then make things worse by not having a help menu, for example, this app. Explaining this annoying quirk is the least I can do. Be prepared to tap and tap and keep tapping away, trying to hit the one special pixel in that teeny colored dot just so… you'll get it eventually. Think of it as one more puzzle to solve!
Update: My phone wouldn't sync properly and so I had to restore it from a backup. Once it was restored, Optia worked just like it's supposed to. Unfortunately, all of my progress was erased and the advanced levels were locked.
If you've encountered a similar problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I wish I had tried this before my stupid phone went blooey and required resetting… it might've saved all my progress.
Just updated this the other day and now it won't let me play at all. I can see the levels menu but nothing works to start playing. What happened?
I'm really sorry the update stopped the app from working for you! Would you please email me at email@example.com, and I'll try to figure out how to fix the problem?
Not disappointed with never-ending content
I love this game. The time based laser logic makes for some great puzzles. The game has its own great puzzles to start of the player with a good understanding of game mechanics, and then 1000s of player made levels to keep you busy forever. Literally, it's been 2 years or more and I still haven't finished all of them. This game will keep you busy.
Great Fun and Support
This is a really fun puzzle game. I hadn't played in a while and forgot my login info. The dev helped me out in less than a day and was quite friendly.
