When I was a kid, I loved to play a game called Lights Out by Tiger Electronics.

It was my first portable “game console”, and this is what it looked like:

OMG, this commercial is gold!

Recently a similar grid pattern reminded me of this game, so I decided to recreate it – but as a progressive web app.

While I’m not a big fan of the Neomorphism design trend, I wanted to play around with it to get an idea how the gradients and shadows are combined for that special look.

Stuff I used for this project:

  • Svelte with Sapper, which I highly enjoyed using (upgraded to SvelteKit in the meantime)
  • Default Sapper Service Worker to enable offline mode
  • CSS Grid, because – well – it’s a grid!
  • This handy Neumorphism Generator
  • This ancient Lights Out implementation where I could copy the levels from
  • Figma for the favicon and other images
  • Netlify for hosting the statically exported app, thanks so much!
