A simple but addictive app in which user is challenged to turn all the “lightsoff”. We have developed this application on Windows 8 Conxumer Build 8250, using Windows 8SDk, and Visual Studio 2011.
 
The game consists of 5x5 grid board, each grid corresponding to a light. Which can be in either on state or off state. A filled circle indicates on and a blank circle indicates off. The game starts with a random number of lights switched on. The Main goal of player is to switch all of these lights off in minimum time and moves, with the following constraint
When you click on a light, the state of itself and its neighbours (top, left, right and bottom) gets inversed.
 
Once within the game, the user can perform navigation using the appbar, a feature provided in Windows 8. The Appbar buttons dynamically change depending on the context. In main menu and other credits and rules page, the appbar provides with Menu, Game, Rules, Credit.
