I originally bought it on sale for $9.99, but I'd still say it's worth the full retail price.
There are four modes:
Puzzle: The main mode gives you 120 puzzles that you solve at your leisure. As the core puzzle idea of this game is simple it starts off easy, but by the later levels it will become quite difficult. The levels rise in difficulty very linearly with each level being just slightly harder than the previous one.
Time: You need to solve a set of 10 randomly-generated puzzles that range in difficulty from 1 to 10 under a certain time in order to unlock the next set of 10 that will range in difficulty from 11 to 20. You can do this all way till the hardest ones at Level 100. Once you unlock a set, you can start there next time you play.
Hyper: As new receptacles are constantly being added, you have to connect your light sources with them as soon as possible or the receptacles will explode. As this mode tests your reflexes, it has the same sets of light sources, screens and splitters for each level.
Infinite: You start at a level-one difficulty puzzle and progress as far as you can with no time pressure. The puzzles for each level of difficulty are newly created each time you play.
Additional Comments: This is one of my favorite DS games. I really enjoyed its challenge. I have played many puzzle games on the DS now and I would say this is one of the most difficult. The only thing I didn't like about it was that after you solve a puzzle in the main mode, it goes quickly back to puzzle selection screen without giving you enough time to study(or marvel at!) the solution you just figured so hard to come up with.
Sounds simple, but the puzzles become quite complicated as one advances, Many are very challenging... I have only made it to tier 12 (out of 15). There are several different modes of play, some are against time, while others allow as long as one needs for "head scratching". There are also multiplayer (wireless) modes.
This game may not offer the "fun appeal" of a Mario-style game, but it has provided me with many hours of entertainment. For the price (under 10 bucks, when I bought it), it is a bargain!
My only complaint so far is that when you solve a level, the screen clears after a few seconds -- sometimes I'd just like to admire it for a bit! I haven't found a way to stop this yet.

I got through half the puzzles before I got stumped. There are 100 to chose from, so there are plenty to play. But you may be disappointed if you want a lot of play time. Read morePublished on July 4, 2009 by S. J. Krause
I am quite disappointed in this game. It is the same thing over and over. It does get more difficult but it is the exact thing. Also the graphics seem old style. Read morePublished on February 9, 2009 by L. Viscusi
This is a fun little game to begin wtih but the difficulty curve takes a steep incline later on. It's a neat time killer but not worth paying that much for,Published on February 3, 2009 by Michael Gleba
