In 08Jul2008 Circulate Prologue was released as a demonstration. It's now free.

Circulate is the full version and it's now available for $5.99.

The game looks very polished and you can also check the video thriller.

It has 90 levels with different goals as states the game description.

I may buy this later...

Update: here's a PocketGamer Circulate review for mobile phones (Rate: 8).

Interesting, seems kind of pricey for a puzzler though. Is this a match-3 type game? To me it looks like you got to spin the chamber to get the balls to match up and clear the level. Going to pick up the prologue and see how it plays.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Prologue is only one small level. The other levels, as seen on the video, are completely different and more puzzle bazed.

Regardless of this, Prologue is one of the best Match-3 games with gravity involved and tilt control.

looks amazing. Judging from the video, this is very different from a match three.

I am buying it now.

This a pretty cool game. It is like a cross between Enigmo and Labyrinth. Levels have different goals. Sometimes you need to bring all the balls of a particular color together, other times you need to get them to thier color-coded "drop slot" and some times you need to make certain balls come into contact with each other.

I wish I could use touch controls to rotate the play area instead of just tilt controls though.

Good music.

Bad sounds (too loud usually).

And the rating is 8 (Silver).

Prologue plays itself?

I picked up Circulate Prologue and was thrilled with the graphics and production but I couldn't understand the game as it seems to play itself.

The balls would pop out from the center of the circular field moving to the periphery and then those that matched burst with sound and disappear. It was a fun interactive experience until I realized that the matches made themselves when just don't do anything and lay the game flat, ie no tilt. It was a fun movie to watch and occasionally touch a bomb to burst, but I hope the pro is not as self-playing. Enticing, but not enough pull for the full version.
