I thought the Reflex was an only child, waiting in the park... in charge of finding treasure in the dark?

Special thanks to this site for making this post possible.

This is too cool. Anyhow, wasn't there an old school arcade game like this?

Well you know you can't stop it
When they start to play
You gotta get out the way-

The politics of dancing
The politics of ooh, feeling good
The politics of moving, uh-huh
Is this message understood?

Reflex must have a been a precursor to The Incredible Machine.

Which is also a lot of fun. Thanks for the link.

This is better than most mirror games, in that you can't lose, so there's less frustration. Plus it makes a good drum machine.

It's a good thing I suck terribly at this, so I can just stop.

Hey Grouse, I wanted you to rebut my rebuttal on the whole homeopathy debate. That was a spirited one!

Just to taunt you all further... there are 27 levels, and I have beaten them all. No I will not give out the codes :)

painquale - stuck on 23. What's the secret (or what's the passcode for 24)?

I don't want to skip all the way to 27 after beating 1-22...

K, here's the hint:

The blue gem in the neck of the exit is the toughest to get. It can't be the last gem you get (because of the placement and number of gems). So, you have to get it sometime before getting other gems, which means you need to rush in, grab it, and get back out. You need to bounce off the grey mirror in order to get down there, but if you pick up only the gem in that bottleneck, you'll flip the grey mirror, and you won't be able to escape. So you need to pick up both it and the gem above it in one pass. When you start the level, don't get the three gems in a row immediately! Go to the left side of the playing field instead. Don't pick up all the gems here, either - figure out how many of the gems you need to pick up to orient the mirrors the right way, then work your way to the right side of the playing field by moving across the top.

The code for 24 is 46994
