Connect all of the chips to create a circuit and complete each level. All chips must be linked together and each chip must have the required number of connections to other chips.

Find yourself really stuck? Use a hint to help complete the circuit. If you’re looking for an additional challenge however, try to complete each level perfectly by making no mistakes.

Start with the basic level pack to learn the ropes, then move on to more challenging packs. Hundreds of levels are available as standard, with additional content available.

It’s free to download and play, what have you got to lose?

This is definitely a game I will try.
What did you use to make it work on these 3 platforms?

Thank you chriske for your interest in our game!

We built them natively on each platform, using different frameworks:

iOS - Cocos2d
Android - libgdx
WP8 - Monogame

I take it you're using iOS?

Do you also have a tablet (Android or iPad)? If so, you might be interested to know that we have optional tablet packs with larger levels able to make use of the extra screen size.

Looks good

When in March will it be out, will it work on 7" screens?

Was this game inspired by LYNE? Seems pretty similar

Thanks for the interest guys.

Circix is due to be released on iOS, Android, and Win Phone 8 towards the end of this month (March 2014), with full support for tablet devices - so yes it will work on 7'' screens (I presume you're referring to an Android device?).

Circix was actually inspired by a mini-game on a 3DS title! And last time I checked LYNE was not a free title

We have also taken some inspiration for the UI from Flow Free. This is because we felt it nailed it from a UI point of view. We therefore hope to appeal to fans of Flow Free, though not just because of the graphical similarities, but also because Circix is a fantastic puzzler!

The developer already mentioned it is a free game, so no need to beg for a promo codes (which is considered poor form here).

The game reminds me of the excellent LYNE too, which was recently free.

No worries but as slewis says, no promo codes required! Glad you like the look of our game though. Circix has been submitted to apple for review so not too long to wait now!

Hope we can count on you to give our game a go then, see if it compares to LYNE. Hopefully it will be just as popular!

I'm afraid we do not have any plans to develop and release a Blackberry version of Circix. May I suggest you treat her to a compatible device for her next birthday :P
