As we love music, we wanted to make a game that gives the player an insight into how music is created and makes listening the core part of the experience. Packed with beautifullly designed minimal graphics, to not disturb the focus of the game, and right now 25 different songs for the player to reconstruct.

So if you like music, you will like Circuits .

This is how to make a simple but well done music experience. Interesting idea and unusual game mechanics. If you like music and have sensitive hearing it's worth trying.

Circuits is a wonderful puzzle game to challenge your musical hearing abilities...

...if you don't already have over a decade of musical experience.

99% of you are probably don't have the best ears in the world when it comes to music, so for most of you out there, I will definitely recommend this. But be prepared for some pretty difficult puzzles!

However, for those with a history of extensive musical training, don't expect to use much thought process. I myself am a music composition major in university, and have been playing music since the age of 2. Needless to say, I was able to complete all the puzzles with total ease, without using any hints or switching to individual instrument layers. If you think you would be in a similar position as me, either wait until more difficult puzzles are introduced into the game (the devs are considering adding some more challenging levels), or simply get the game now, and use it as a method to relax.
On a side note, I hear there is a new extention or software coming soon called Circuits Composer, which means that the community might be able to provide us with some truly challenging puzzles, possibly even for music graduates.

My final word is that I fully recommend this game to people who don't have impossibly sharp ears, as you'll be developing your hearing abilities through levels that you may find yourself stuck on for hours. And even for the others, I would still recommend the game, given that you keep in mind my comments above.

I'll be looking forward to any future updates!

Definitely an interesting musical experience fuzed with minimalistic interface. Depending on the player's musical ear will determine the puzzle's difficulty. I would recommend this game for anyone that appreciates musical composition and eloquent ear training puzzles.

Edit: The Circuits Composer mode was a free update and essentially an entirely different branch of this game. For those that like the music from Circuits, now they can take sound bytes (either from the game or just similar sounds from the game's composer) and piece them together with a simple yet limited GUI. This is probalby the equivilance of what Windows Movie Maker is in the video editing world. Although limited, it's pretty easy to create some simple electronic ambient background music.

If musical puzzles or simple electronic music creation is what you want, I'd recommend Circuits a go.

Minimalist styling and graphics make gameplay enjoyable to watch and play. The music fits the theme the graphics create – a gorgeous synthesis aesthetically.

Game: 8.0/10
