In the depths of space, containment fields are degrading and spectres are threatening to break free. To re-establish containment, you must solve laser puzzles. Use mirrors, lenses, and more to guide laser beams to colored targets in this scientifically accurate and wildly cool laser game. Watch out for the spectres... they will haunt you.
Quantum Spectre challenges players to solve increasingly tricky puzzles. Each new puzzle requires players to demonstrate a deeper intuition about the behavior of light and an understanding of the optics tools. Quantum Spectre is part of the Leveling Up collection, developed by EdGE and to support and measure science learning in games people choose to play in their free time.
EdGE — On the edge of science and play! The Educational Gaming Environments group (EdGE) at TERC hopes to show that learning happens in all kinds of places by investigating the possibilities—and challenging the assumptions—of game-based learning environments. EdGE is designing and studying games whose mechanics mirror real scientific phenomena, but more importantly, are fun to play.

Where did that hour go?
Compelling game that draws you in with a few easy ones until you realize you can't stop! Those Spectres are the bane of my existence. Can recommend.
A fascinating game where you have to get the right colours of light ray to hit the right targets. Once you have convex and concave mirrors and lenses it gets challenging and addictive!
I played this game for a long time. It kept me on my toes with lots of tricky puzzles.
