Grading System - Outstanding, Excellent, Good, Acceptable, Poor, Horrendous, Abysmal

Gameplay: Good
Stability: Excellent
Story: Acceptable
Controls: Excellent

Notes: + (Positives), = (Small Gripes), - (Negatives)

+ The concept of finding seeds to auto-complete hard rooms is useful for those certain areas.
+ The powers that you gain are fairly interesting and varied.
+ Gradual difficulty increase keeps it from being too tedious.
+ Relaxed gameplay allows for an enjoyable experience without stress.

= The graphics of blocks can confuse where you can go at times.

- Once you get the powers, many of the earlier rooms become a cakewalk with next to no effort required.

It's simple but attractive art style makes for a perfect combo with challenging but simplistic gameplay
The difficulty ramp was perfect in the beginning with some areas and object that you get the feeling you'll need to come back to at a later date to access.
Puzzles started easy but become harder over time so they require you to think outside of the box you are in.

I never played got to play the original flash version which was a let down for a lot of new players as the map was very small and blurry making looking those last few unexplored areas.... troublesome, to say the least.
One of the secret areas was VERY hard to get to because I lit the room up before accessing it but I did manage to get in after a few minutes.

8/10
- Overall a fun game to play on the side, challenging, nice music and a great art style

Game is hard as ****. Dont let the cute graphics fool you. This game is one of those that is hard even if you have a good map to guide you. (found one in the forums) Without a map i find this game to have too much of the trial & error type of gameplay (you will learn to hate it when you fall down from a level just when you are trying to find the last power node - resetting the level)

I find myself nevertheless drawn to this game. This is not a walk in the park game that holds your hand and it feels really good when a cluster of levels start to be solved slowly.

1000 Amps is a simple little platformer where you must go through empty levels, lighting the way. Everything you touch becomes a wall, some sort of platforming obstacle, or node. The goal is to light all of the nodes of each room before progressing. Through the game more power ups and obstacles are introduced, making puzzles become appropriately more challenging. Most rooms had multiple exits, allowing the player to solve rooms in different orders.

The music is repetitive, but easy to listen to. It never bothered me in my hour with the game, but a little more variety would have been nice. The art is really simple, and easy on the eyes. Every detail of the game is distinct and easy to figure out what it means – even the first time coming across it.

Overall 1000 Amps is a well-executed minimalistic non-linear puzzle platformer.

the game its really funny if you like puzzle games.
It sounds ok
Its graphics are pretty good, it looks simple and stylish but without confusing you from what is what.
the gameplay mechanics are pretty entretaining, but sometimes I don't know if the way I solved a room is the correct way or it was because of the delay between full/empty light ability.
My only problems with the games are the necesity to revisit every room and find your way to the unsolved rooms, with such an extensive map a zoom option would be great, and in one room particularly I teleported by error in a closed space and had to use five seed to solve the room because I couldn't get out of where I was which is a waste for me.
