The musical puzzle game Circuits has arrived on the Nintendo Switch eShop, according to a new press release. The game has a minimalist, but innovative concept behind the game play. Players must listen carefully to the music and try to combine several parts of the song in order to match the level’s melody. There are a total of 25 levels, each with their own music track. The music ranges from ambient and dub step to epic orchestra. The game may also give players an insight into the creation of music.

 

The game also features a minimalist art style that is inspired by electronic circuit diagrams. This minimalist design helps ensure that the visuals do not distract from the puzzle at hand. The soundtrack for Circuits was composed by David GarcĂ­a, who has also worked on such games as Deadlight and Rime.

Circuits has already been available on Steam for some time. It should also be noted that on Steam, the game got a free update called Circuits Composer. This update allows users to create their own songs and upload them to Steam Workshop. So if you want to be able to make your own songs/puzzles, you may want to choose the Steam version, as the Switch version may not have this feature (the game’s Nintendo Switch eShop page does not mention it at all). Here is the trailer for it:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
