droidworks
Added DiffLines:
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsDroidworks'' has two missions that play this straight. There's the "Laser-Powered Fusion Reactor" in the Phrik metal mine, which you have to fix twice in a row [[spoiler: (although it's implied that the assassin droid hiding there sabotaged them deliberately to bait you)]]; and later, a series of ''laser-and-angles'' puzzles are used to view the data crystals you collected from the previous missions. The mirror controls become more and more broken the farther you go.

reah
Added DiffLines:
* ''Reah: Face the Unknown'' contains such a puzzle in a fabric shop, using mirrors and a lens to light the fire in a vat of dye. You have to do it because the only person there doesn't know how. At one point, the player character comments on the fact that he can't see himself in any of the mirrors.

The basic idea of this trope was [[JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters tested by the Mythbusters]], albeit in the "used light a room" sense. While it does provide some light for the room, it isn't something that can't be relied upon for being able to see through the dark. Without a stable light source, you'd have to constantly readjust the mirrors due to the changing positions of the sun. While with a stable light source it ''is'' possible to rebound the light off of several mirror, it quickly starts to weaken to the point of being unnoticeable the further it goes, pretty much requiring the mirrors be almost right up next to each other. So, while it ''is'' technically possible, it's highly improbable.

* In ''MegaManBattleNetwork 5'', you are in a room on a ship when the lights go out and a valuable program gets stolen. No one in the room has it. The open door, the mirrors and the fact that navis can travel on infrared beams are all important to solving the mystery. Answer: [[spoiler:It's Napalm Man or Tomahawk Man and their operators, depending on the version.]]

* A few of the puzzles in ''SoulReaver'' involve using mirrors to redirect beams of light, when they don't involve [[BlockPuzzle blocks]].
