Sounds a bit like an old game called D/Generation. I was hooked on that game for a very long time.I've been playing a puzzle game called The Talos Principle. It's a lot like a serious version of Portal, although the background is more engrossing. It's largely about moving laser beams, boxes, fans and the like in order to access various rooms. It's very polished and has an interesting story. If recommend it, if that's your sort of thing.
