Circuits tests your ear for deconstructing musical pieces

Does not test your electrical engineering knowledge, thankfully

While most music-based games focus on maintaining rhythm or use the sound to generate gameplay elements, Circuits takes a bit of a different approach. Taking on a much slower pace, Circuits tasks players with listening to a musical piece, then reconstructing that piece using a predetermined template and several small chunks of melody and rhythm to place in the template.

Though the video above shows off the minimalist art style that led to its namesake, the video below does a better job explaining how one actually plays Circuits. Through use of keen ears and attention to detail, players can reconstruct a song and watch as it visually unfolds from beginning to end of the circuit.

Circuits will be available on iPad "soon," and is currently up on Steam Greenlight.
