Circuits is an independent masterpiece. It is highly original, and I have never seen another game like it! While it's mechanics are deceitfully simple, you will come to find Circuits both stimulating and satisfying. The objective is to string together various segments of a song in the correct order... Easy, right? =)Story:
If you only play games with a primary focus on storytelling, Circuits might not be the game for you. If you can, however, enjoy a game without a tale to tell, I really implore you to try this game.Gameplay:
If you are a music lover, this game might suit you. The gameplay revolves around the music, and I assure you that the soundtrack is superb, and with good reason. Basically, all you have to do is listen to the song and figure out how to recreate it on an empty template. You can listen to the song in layers, or as a whole, depending on how well you can pick apart sound. The game doesn't take long to beat, and my only complaint is the difficulty. It starts off extremely easy, and at some point takes a leap into higher difficulties. Overall, this game is extremely enjoyable, especially if you're just looking for something relaxing to do.Controls:
This game offers an untraditional approach to gaming. While the controls are simple enough, and playable simply with a mouse, it is best played with a set of headphones. This helps the player to become immersed in the sounds, which in turn will aid them on their quest to put the sounds in the correct sequence.Graphics:
Sleek, simple, and to the point: Circuit's interface is highly appealing, and not overly cluttered. The music will be threaded together on a maze of lines, taking the form of colourful circles, which will light up as they are played. The background is subtle, and overall, I feel that the graphics are reasonable.Sound:
The audio is possibly Circuit's best selling feature, in my opinion. While some sounds are not entirely appealing, most are incredibly easy to listen to. It is easy on the ears, and progresses in difficulty throughout the players gaming experience. There isn't a lot left to critique. Replay Value:
I'd be willing to play Circuits again, I'm kind of a sucker for puzzle games, so I tend to play a puzzle per week, or so.
