Lighting effects are rectangular areas that can lighten objects within their boundaries. Lighting effects can also tint objects different colors. Lighting effects come in a variety of shapes, and can be layered to create gradations from one color to another.
Lighting effects may be substantially modified by routines. A routine may change a lighting effect's location, strength, and color. A lighting effect that is modified during gameplay can produce interesting visual effects.
Lighting Effects may be added to levels and manipulated as described in the Adding Level Objects and Level Object Manipulation sections.
