“It's got style… It gets you thinking. It gets your toe tapping as well because the music in this is fantastic… This is a clever reintroduction of puzzle and rhythm fusion.”
8.0 Marissa / 8.0 Victor – Reviews on the Run

“Micron presents a perfect blend of aesthetically-pleasing visuals and head-bopping music that is sure to leave you thinking about the game long after you’ve completed it.”
4.5/5 stars – Operation Rainfall

“Micron is more of an interactive audio-visual experience than just a simple puzzle game, and if you're at all into retro styled games and music this is a puzzler you just can't miss.”

About This Game

Micron is a unique fusion of puzzle and rhythm gameplay. Place pieces on the board to deflect bullets of energy that fire to the beat.

Award-Winning Design


Micron began as a game created for Kongregate's 'Project Eden: Experience the Music' game contest, in which it won 2nd place. The judges included Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ and LUMINES, and representatives from Ubisoft, Gamespot, and Kongregate.

Classic visual like the Famicon but experiencing the process of sound effects evolving into the music felt really good. The harder the game, the more exciting the music gets — this was blended perfectly.” — Tetsuya Mizuguchi

MICRON on PC / Steam
Score 9 / 10

Emerging from the fuzzy morning brain I grabbed a hot cup of java and slipped into this light and esthetic puzzle experience. Toe tapping to gentle ‘chillout house music’, I choreographed bouncing balls in 2D Minimalist geometric mazes and helped them ‘exit’ to the next levels. Sixty-three puzzles, six hours, 6 minutes a puzzle: Nice.

Game score 9 / 10
10 / exemplary execution of the genre with compelling innovation
9 / exemplary execution, don’t miss out; for fans of the genre and the curious alike
8 / for well done not a must play, fans of the genre and newbs will be happy it is well done

6 / only for serious fans of the genre for whom game play with bugs is acceptable

I enjoy puzzle games of all kinds, I especially have a soft spot for those with simple design mechanics, Micron definitely fits this criteria, however, for it's price I can't recommend it.

The gameplay is incredibly simple, it's a "bullet redirector", bounce incoming bullets off of strategically placed mirrors to get them to your desired location or to hit particular switches in a certain order which opens up the exit door. Very simple mechanics indeed, but the levels are all incredibly easy offering no real challenge, aside from a small handful (let's say 10). I managed to complete all the stock levels (including the 12 bonus missions) in less than two hours.

Micron is a decent game, but has very little to offer for it's price tag. Buy it during a sale for a quick puzzle fix, otherwise, I'd advise looking elsewhere this time.

A very fun and interesting puzzle game. For the most part, the difficulty is appropriate. Some levels are pretty simple while others can be pretty challenging. But my favorite aspect of this game is how the music and sound effects all tie together... the ambience it all gives is relaxing and enjoyable. Honestly, my only complaint is that I don't get to listen to the music long enough for the shorter/simpler levels.

Definitely worth the investment.

Great little puzzle game that doesn't overstay its welcome. (3hrs to complete the main game minus bonus levels)

+ liked the minimalistic approach to music. It felt just right.
+ oveall pixel-y design is very serviceable, doesn't feel bare
+ level editor for moar levels

- not a big fan of precise timing required for some levels (just a handful, though)
- not a big fan of having to reset a level if you misclicked in placing a piece

However, I completely understand both "-" as valid gamedesign decisions, which make this game "not another game with lasers". For the sale price, I've had zero regrets and pleasant time.

Micron is a straight-forward puzzler with simple graphics and decent sounds. Early levels are easy and the complexity progressively gets more difficult as one would expect. There is little to confuse the player; it is just problem solving with a small set of variables. The music is timed to parallel on-screen activity, providing a neat effect. The interface is clear and fast. I look forward to more challenging levels. 8/10

What a pleasant little distraction for the last couple of days.

To look at it from the outside, it's a faily standard switch-pressing puzzler of which there have been quite a few. However, Micron stands apart in a couple of ways:

1. It doesn't get stupidly hard (see caveat below)
2. It doesn't go on longer than it should
3. Each level doesn't take too long to complete

Most games of this time get to a point, and it's clear the developer's been holding back some painfully hard levels, and has run out of 'ramp up' levels, and all of a sudden drops you off a cliff. You're sitting there looking a level thinking "The last level took me 2 minutes, and I've been staring at this for more than 20. What happened?" (I'm looking at you P.B. Winterbottom amongst others). This doesn't happen in Micron... The levels are iteratively harder, and many of the 'nice interlude' levels (as I think of them) give you a strong hint as to what the twist in the upcoming level is going to be, while being pretty easy in themselves.

There are some strategies you learn, and sometimes you just look at a level, the selection of pieces and it all just clicks.

Okay, here comes the caveat. There are a couple of levels which require you to do something a tad differently to the levels around them: Bonus 9 comes to mind. For those, there was no choice but to go have a look at a hint. Every permutation I tried just wouldn't work. In those cases, it's usually because you need to do something with precision timing, and Ijust hadn't experimented enough.

I like the little tricks it plays with your assumptions on colours, and the ways it makes you think about stretching 'flight time' to synchronise events.

The game would have only taken me one evening to finish, if I'd played it in one sitting. All in all, I think about 3 hours of playtime, which was perfect.

For a quid or two, a nice little puzzler, perfect for a plane flight, train ride, or just whiling away a little time with a cup of tea.

Relaxing, enjoyable and rewarding. Definitely of the best puzzle games on steam. The minimalistic music works well and helps to absorb you into the game. The main game is a bit short, but the steam workshop allows you to play user created levels, or create your own.

Some of the later levels are quite difficult if you don't examine the puzzle close enough. Stop and think. Backwards deduction helps. Even then you will miss things and may get stuck. If you want a real challenge try the player created content, some of it is insane!

Thumbs up. A very good purchase when it is on sale.

I don't know if I'd recommend it for $5, but on sale, yeah.
It took me the time that I have in it to 100% (but I used some hints).
Count on about 3 hours of game, which includes some getting stuck.

A decent puzzle game where you have to route balls/light pulses to buttons and eventually a goal. Each ball triggers a note or musical segment. The puzzles eventually become quite challenging. It engaged me enough to complete the game, so I have to give it credit there. The graphics are extremely simplistic as is the sound/music, but neither are bad in any regard. Rather, they're quite fitting for the game. If you like puzzle games, this one is probably worth a try, especially if you can grab it on a sale. 7/10

I thought this was a pretty good puzzle game but I can see where the negative reviews are coming from. I paid $1.24 for this game and I definitely don't regret that or think it was a waste. But I think the full $5 might be a bit much. Closer to $3 would be my best guess at it's actual value.

The music is kind of unhelpful and to be honest I ended up muting the game, even forgetting that the music was suppose to go along with the puzzles.

My only real question is why the hell there's a bar before the exit that takes 5 balls hitting it before it breaks to finish the level? It makes no sense to me. Maybe it makes a sound or something but even then just let me complete my puzzle 5 seconds faster so I can move on.

All in all, if you like puzzle games you should defintiely play this one, regardless of how simple it looks and how quickly some other people have beaten it.

This is neat little puzzle game. Some of the puzzles are quite simple, while others are maddeningly difficult. Sometimes, I wanted to kick myself after solving a level and realizing that the solution should have been obvious. You have to take several different approaches to reach the answer sometimes, I guess. Anyway, this game is good to get the ol' brain working a bit. I'm having fun with it.

Micron is a nice little Indie musical puzzle game created by Apparition Games. The puzzles are never really actually that hugely difficult, there were a few that caused me a couple or so more minutes of thinking to solve, but there were only a few of these within a total of 63 levels (including the bonus levels).

Your actual goal is basically guiding these different colored balls towards the goal of the level by placing down varying types of barriers that will, depending on their direction and orientation, bounce them in a different direction. More and more obstacles will eventually be added throughout the game the more levels you complete, like colored lasers that won't let any differently colored balls through.

Additionally, in various levels, you actually gain the ability to place portals to further influence your control on these various balls. While some of the latter levels are definitely far more complex than the early ones, I doubt a guide would be needed for most of the levels. Personally, for me, all of the main and bonus levels took me about an hour and a half in total to complete. While that's relatively a short amount of time, I enjoyed the puzzles, liked the look of the game, and especially enjoyed the music. Additionally, there are also Steam Workshop levels if one still wants to play Micron after they finish all the original levels.

Ultimately, Micron is a rather enjoyable although not frustratingly hard musical somewhat short puzzle game that I would say if puzzle games are your thing, is worth the five dollar price as long as you're fine that it's somewhat on the short side. Otherwise, go for it when it's on sale or in a bundle you're already interested in.

"Bullet redirector 1.0"

Nice little puzzle game in the style of itchi (another great game). You have one or many different colored sources of bullets. Activate switches, use portals, redirect them with placeable bumpers and finally they'll go to the target. 51 levels + 12 Bonus levels is the right amount to entertain you for a few hours. Also nice: SoundFX.

Micron is a fun puzzle game consisting of 51 levels (plus 12 bonus); the objective in each level is to guide a stream of balls towards the exit by placing some special obstacle tiles that change the stream’s direction: there are vertical/horizontal blockers, diagonal ones and teleporting gates (that are unlocked during mid-game levels).

The first half of the game is fairly easy, the puzzles are not very complicated and have nice solving ideas that sometimes can seem to be repeating a bit too much, but this wasn't an issue for me. However, the last few levels are pretty difficult and the bonus levels are extremely challenging to the point of frustration because you might find yourself trying to come up with a solution for hours and you simply can’t find any. For those that want to obtain all the achievements in this game, this might be a bit annoying unless they resort to consulting a guide.

Also be warned that some of these puzzles are timed; you need to coordinate to the second the timing of placing the special blockers on the board. This again requires a lot of trial and error.

I’ve also tried a few levels from the workshop and they’re nice and enjoyable; I appreciated that the game automatically downloads the workshop items that I’ve subscribed to, without needing a restart.

What is Micron?

Micron is a 2D puzzle game where you have a grid of tiles and need to set diagonal or horizontal/vertical tiles in a way that balls - shot out by non-movable cannons - reach the exit. While this is easy at first, the puzzles get harder continuously, although only few are really difficult. Some can however be described as tricky - if you don't pay attention to the setup and pieces you have, you can't solve them, as you might need to use pieces for more than one purpose.

After all, it is a nice little game I would recommend for a price of maybe 1.50 to 2 Euro, as it will take you around two hours to solve everything, unless you get stuck on difficult puzzles.

A smaller version of the game is available for free on Kongregate.

Recommended: For puzzle-fans.

While very confusing at first this game quickly becomes more and more addictive to its cute puzzle type.

(Tip : have maybe 2 hours so far i think but steam did not record since my internet goes off and on so i did play this game and reached far : ) )

With the great 8bit Soundtrack that is very retrolike ( i think ) and very great and funny :).

you basically just make the way for the bullet to reach the end by placing boarders of different shapes, the game keeps getting harder and harder the more you progress with it, and needs a bit of fast thinking in most levels.
i think there is about 60+ levels and with steamworkshop you can even find more and create your own levels, i really like that about puzzle games because there are a lot of very creative people out-there that can make a very intelligent and challenging levels, so having Steam Workshop is always a plus for puzzle games in my opinion.

The achievements are pretty reasonable nothing too complicated just basic stuff, that you can get by finishing the entire game.

if you like a funny type puzzle game that packs a challenge For 4,49$ im completely satisfied with it.
and hopfuly if they add trading cards that would just attract more and more Players because currently they are a big deal ( trading cards ) for people to buy small games.

Also the game works with (Touch) tablets and whatnot so thats also pretty cool : )
i for myself perfer a mouse altho it also works with a controller so it supports it all.
Windows, linux and mac ? Thats also admirable : ) 10/10 for the entire game.

Great puzzle game!

It has clean, nice, minimalist visuals and smooth, chilling tunes. The rules are simple and I solved most of the levels under 3-4 minutes but some of them will make you think for a while for sure. Even if you are good with puzzles I think it will take at least 3 or 4 hours to solve them all. The price is fair and Steam Workshop is integrated so there are more user made content after the retail levels.

Smart, quality game. Recommended!

Excercise your critical thinking skills in this fun puzzle game. With its simplistic design and musical sound effects I found it quite enjoyable and would highly recommend it. The concept is simple. Balls are shot from an opening and you must place angles and or portals to get it to open doors and get them to the end. The difficulty is you must put them in the proper spot at the proper time to achieve your goal.

It is a great game for all ages however those under ten may need help to finish it unless they are unusually patient. A great game to play with your children though. Get their little problem solving wheels turning! The game has some difficult levels but not overly so in my opinion. I did however cheat on one of the bonus levels and look for the answer elsewhere.

There are a number of free levels for download in the steam workshop as well. Just subscribe to them and they will be downloaded the next time you start the game.

I did not find any bugs and was not able to complete any level using less than the full complement of pieces provided. Note: This is edited because I could not find the level editor. I did find the level editor it is in your steam files.

In my opinon it would be worth the full price of $4.99 or even better to purchase it on sale! However I prefer to let the gamer decide how much a game is worth as it is a subjective matter. Hope this review helped.

Enjoy your Gaming!

A simplistic and well designed puzzle game with a good range in difficulty across 77 levels. At least half of which should pose a good challenge; even for puzzle solving veterans.

The main game took me about 4 hours to complete, but there's also a good amount of user created levels in the workshop for the game, which might extend that further for those interested. I haven't tried the level editor since it's exclusive to the Windows version of the game, but I did look at the tutorial and it seems pretty straight forward to use.

Overall I really enjoyed the game and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others looking for a good puzzler.

I have read most of the negative and positive reviews, and summing up: This game is short, yes, but it's a game with no more than 70 levels so what did you expect? The game itself and the music is neat, that's for sure. As for the complaints (actually complaint) about the "annoying music", it actually is relaxing music and you could just turn it off anyways. The difficulty curve is good as well, people complaining that there were "way too hard" levels within the first 10 levels have clearly not played any puzzle game in their life. As for the controller support, why would you need it? This game is perfect to relax for a couple of hours just clicking here and there every now and then, there's no need for a controller.

TL;DR: This game is short, relaxing and worth playing, not sure I'd recommend buying it on full price but you could throw a couple of bucks into this.

Micron is an amusing puzzle game that's good for a couple of hours of fun. Admittedly, it's not very long and not too hard but it's at least on par (content-wise) with a few other puzzle games in the same genre and price range.

Honestly though if the Devs wanted to immensely increase the longevity and overall value of the game, they should add in workshop support. This game seems like a great fit for it. If they do end up adding it, I would have to rank this game a lot higher among my favorite puzzle games (along with LYNE for example).

Great puzzle game, with great music, I would absolutely recommend it.
Although, with only 63 levels, it can has a short lifetime, and I recommend getting this game on sale, on in a bundle.

A delightful game. An awesome music serving a minimalistic but powerful gameplay. The tutorial is 5 seconds long, you'll need no explanations to understood what you are supposed to do, and the puzzles provide some challenge but not up to frustration. After a few tries you'll eventually find the solution and enjoy a good moment. The life duration is short, but worth it.

Game: 7.0/10

Decent enough puzzly game. Wasn't jolly to have my controller constantly vibrating, but this was fixable via the weird slider in the options menu.

The initial puzzles are extremely underwhelming for anybody seeking a slight mental challenge; of course it's all the more suitable then for kids and sleepy adults.

Later levels up the pace and require semi-timed placement of items.

Especially user made puzzles might require some level of quick item placement, which makes me doubt they are very playable with a controller (that emulates mouse movement). Maybe using the dpad to select tiles is better, but the Xbox 360 controller diagonal pad is notoriously useless.
