New options were added to tile lighting. Tiles can switch or pulse between two different colors (not just between black and another color), and in story mode, logic can be used to trigger lighting changes.

Logic is all settings of objectives, time, counter, score, messages, awards, etc. of story mode. All configurations are used to create one mission, then you place it in Logic.
