You might not have heard of the game Circuits before, but its available on Xbox One December 15th so you can check it out then! It was previously released on Steam a few years ago.
“Simple in concept, but very challenging and rewarding, Circuits is a 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.”
No, it’s not an AAA game – it’s an Indie game. A puzzle game to be specific and its not for the faint of heart. In fact, this one actually seems like you need to genuinely be patient and be quick on your feet! You can see several images of videos below that revolve around Circuits.

If you have not purchased this game on Steam yet and want to purchase it on Xbox One when it’s released, there are also a few reviews from fellow gamers on PC regarding Circuits:
“Circuits is an outstanding puzzle game that is sure to immerse any player who chooses to experience its sheer brilliance”
“You’re doing yourself a disservice not to give it a try if it sounds like something you think you might enjoy”
“Circuits is one of those increasingly-popular sleek, simplistic puzzle games, with very simple (yet complex) concepts that grow as you play. Similar to LYNE, Splice, SpaceChem, KAMI, or Perfection., Circuits is polished to perfection, very easy on the eyes, and EXTREMELY easy on the ears. Circuits has one of the best soundtracks of any puzzle game ever, and for good reason: the gameplay revolves around the music. The object of the game is to construct certain songs piece by piece, by listening to the full thing in sequence, and then doing your best to remember what it sounded like. It gets more and more complex as you go, as it has very nice progression. It stays entertaining as it introduces new methods of completing increasingly difficult and complex songs, such as looping certain clips.”
Oh, and did I mention since it’s an Indie game it’s only a few bucks? Yea there’s that!
