Description

Help Circuit Dude build his ultimate secret invention by plugging in chips, pushing blocks, stepping on switches, rotating walls and so much more in this game featuring over 12 hours of gameplay and 100 levels. What is he up to? What is Circuit Dude building? Finish all 100 levels to find out!

If that's not enough, in the next FREE update, you'll soon be able to design your own master contraptions using the in-game level editor and even upload it to the internet to send to your friends! (Updated planned for Sep, 2017)

Gameplay

Gameplay is simple: Guide Circuit Dude over every socket in order to plug in microchips. After all sockets are filled in, the exit portal activates, which let's you advance to the next level. But be careful! Once you plug a chip into a socket, you're not able to walk back over that spot. You have to be clever in how you navigate through a level; Otherwise, you'll block yourself from getting to the exit. Along the way, you'll come across over 10 different and interesting tile mechanics, such as rotating walls, teleportation pads, buttons and switches you can stand on, trap doors, blocks that need to be pushed, electric probes, conveyor belts, and others!

You have unlimited lives and there are no active enemies. The only way to die in Circuit Dude is to kill yourself. It's a puzzle game where if you get stuck or die, it's your fault. It has a great sense of challenge with that awesome "Ah Ha!" moment when you solve another level.

It's like a modern take on Chip's Challenge!

Let's Play Gaming Expo Best Indie Game Runner-Up

Community-Rated, Best Arduboy Game


History

Circuit Dude originated on the Arduboy, which is an Arduino-based handheld game console. It quickly rose to being one of the most downloaded games for the platform, despite this version only have black/white graphics, less mechanics, and only 50 levels. With over 2,000 downloads, Circuit Dude on the Arduboy has been voted by the community to be the best Arduboy game and that makes me feel just awesome.

After a while, I had more and more fans of Circuit Dude ask me for more levels, a sequel, new mechanics or even a level editor... However, the most popular request I had was from people asking me to make a PC version, so of course, I had to oblige! Not only would I bring it to PC, but I'd give it new mechanics, a graphical upgrade, rework several existing levels, and add over 50 new levels to the mix. I also didn't want to let people down who were asking for a mobile version, so from the beginning of development, I also started working on a version for iOS as well as Android. These versions would come a few weeks after the upcoming FREE DLC that adds in a level editor as well as online level sharing.

It took me 100 days and spending over 8 hours each on some of the harder levels, but I did it! I brought the Arduboy's best-rated game to the PC and Mac!
