About This Game

Simple in concept, but very challenging and rewarding, Circuits is a musical puzzle game that requires careful listening to complete each level.

The goal of Circuits


piece together the different parts of a song. Sounds easy, but maybe not.

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 .

Features


  • Engaging gameplay that gives an insight into music creation for players
  • A soundtrack mix of electronic ambient,dubstep, and epic orchestra composed by David García ( Deadlight, Rime...)
  • Beautiful minimal design
  • And a Turbo.

Circuits has nothing to do with electricity, but it does require a good musical ear to distinguish sometimes subtle differences in sound samples. And that's basically what circuits is all about--chaining musical samples together to reproduce the default piece of each level. While the music samples are pretty good, as a game where the player simply tries to reproduce what he hears, I didn't find it all that fun or engaging.

As I played the game, I was thinking that the user should be able to make his own musical scores based on the samples provided. And apparently there is a Circuits Composer feature coming soon which I think will make this game a fun little music generator. So I give it a thumbs up for a future unreleased feature. The base game isn't all that impressive, but it's hard not to recommend it given the sale price.

Puzzle for the audio lovers.
You play a sample song, then recreate it, using samples, as puzzle piece.
Yes, simple and straightforward.

You'll need to have a good ears and good musical sense tho.
But hey, this game is fun even if you didn't!
Just put on your headphones, and listen, and solve the puzzle.

9/10 great sound and music.

Good music game. Very challenging. Need good hearing, a fair pear of earphone (at least can make you identify the low notes), and a little music theory also helps.

Literally unplayable, Circuits is a "game" with no clear objective and no real gameplay. It basically consists of a trial and error system where you guess where a certain musical sample goes, and if you get it wrong, you simply try again. There is no skill involved and thus the experience very quickly becomes boring. I bought this for 75 cents, and I can honestly say it wasn't worth the money.

Wonderful game, you're putting together a puzzle made of sound.

An ear for music and detail is highly recommended, if not required...

What a game! While it boils down to a simple memory game, let's be honest, the atmosphere, helped out by the style of graphics and music, really shines and makes this a relaxing puzzle game. Playing a few times, and not to be sappy, this did help me calm down from a lot of stress I've been having lately, and I felt great after playing it. Great. I'm acting artsy, am I?

This is a great, nifty little game. It's fun to play, although the music isn't the best.

A well thought out and fun game. Everything goes well together, from the graphics to the beautiful audio, you won't be bored playing this game. Although there are only 25 levels in this game, the creators have promised a Composer Mode in the future and that's where the real gem is.

If done right, this game will be much more than just a game, it would be a very easy and visual way to create music for those who find it difficult to use other music creation software.

But for now, enjoy the 25 wonderful levels in the game or heck, put the "wrong" notes in each slot and hear your own remixes.

And now I regret why did I bought this for .74 cents, I should've bought this for 3$, it should be 5$ infact. The game is all about a musical puzzle. You have to hear a music snippet of few seconds, and place the tones/chords on their places to form a music you just heard.

It is well designed, music is really good, I play few levels again just to listen that sweet music. Go for it.

This is a great game, but for some, I'd recommend to wait for some sale.
Consisting of 25 levels, each level are unique, beautiful, and short, too short.
I really enjoy the music, but it's short, damn short.
Maybe Circuit Composer will change that in the future.

Anyway, the graphic is great. Simple, clean, and futuristic. (It's my opinion)
It's nothing fancy, just a simple looking 2D graphic, which I'll give an 8/10

The music, is up to people's opinion, because people's taste in music differ.
For me, the only problem is it's shortness, still I'll give it 8.5/10

The gameplay, is really simple.
Seriously.
9/10

But it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ short (how many times have I mentioned it by now?), and no replay value.
Oh yeah, no storyline.
No story.
(Or are there?)

Circuits is a good musical puzzle game but it's not for everyone. You will have to distinguish between bits of songs that can sometimes be quite similar. There is one annoying flaw in the game which is that you don't control every part of the song. Part of the song is played automatically and sometimes it sounds exactly like the pieces you have to place, which can cause problems.

3/5
