"The meat of The Talos Principle is in the puzzles. Most of these have the same basic goal: find a way to get to the Sigil (a colored tetromino) at the end of each of the small, discrete puzzle rooms. These start out simple, with only a couple of tools available, but eventually become more complex and more devious.
Barring access to the Sigils are energy barriers, automated turrets, and explosive drones. Initially, the main tool to deal with these obstacles is the jammer, which can shut down any electronic devices. Later, connectors are used to manipulate lasers, hexahedra will weigh down pressure plates, fans can push objects, and more."
