Deflektor is a puzzle game developed by Vortex Software and published by Gremlin Graphics in 1987. In this game, the player has to rotate mirrors to deflect a beam in order to destroy all the cells of each level. There are also other devices the player has to be careful not to touch with the beam for too much time because otherwise the system will overload. The game was followed by a sequel in 1989 called Mindbender.
According to the Deflektor X4 remake programmer Ignacio Pérez Gil, the Deflektor developer Costa Panayi endorsed the creation and distribution of the non-commercial open-source freeware in the 2000s.
Writing for Zzap! magazine in February, 1988, Julian Rignall wrote "Deflektor is very enjoyable, and provides an original and worthwhile way to kill time."
