Black Box is a licensed computer adaptation of the board game with the same name. It is played on a 8 by 8 grid where a number of atoms are hidden. The number of atoms can be selected before starting with a maximum of ten. To locate the atoms the player has to send rays from the sides of the grid and see if the they are absorbed, reflected or deflected by the atoms. Rays that directly hit the atoms are absorbed while rays that move one box away from an atom are reflected. The rays' path through the grid is not shown so the player has to figure it out based on where they exit the grid. When the player thinks he knows the atoms' positions he can make guesses and will then get a score depending on how many were right.
