Micron is a game with a unique blend of puzzle and rhythm gameplay. Place pieces on the board to deflect bullets of energy that fire to the beat. Guide the bullets to the exit through 51 challenging levels -- and 12 bonus levels -- featuring a variety of distinctive soundscapes. Your solutions create the music.
--- How to Play ---
Each puzzle comes with a set of pieces you can place on the board to deflect the bullets. To place a piece on the board, first touch the square where you'd like to place the piece, and then touch the piece. That's it!
--- Award Winning Design ---
Micron began as a game created for Kongregate's 'Project Eden: Experience the Music' game contest, in which it won 2nd place. The judges included Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ and LUMINES, and representatives from Ubisoft, Gamespot, and Kongregate.
"Classic visual like the Famicon but experiencing the process of sound effects evolving into the music felt really good. The harder the game, the more exciting the music gets—this was blended perfectly." — Tetsuya Mizuguchi
--- Reviews ---
"A lovely puzzle game where your gameplay changes the music as you go. It's worth replaying a level once you've beaten it in order to experience with other solutions and listen to the new melodies."
"The game is wonderfully simple, yet deceptively difficult at higher levels."
"A delightful game. An awesome music serving a minimalistic but powerful gameplay."
"Brilliant and fun music puzzle game. It gets my recommendation for sure."
"This is a really chilled out puzzle game with excellent sound, well worth a look!"
What's New in Version 1.24
Added iPhone 5 support. Fixed some of the bonus levels.
I don't usually review apps, but this is a great game that deserves more attention. The basic premise is strong - Portal is an apt comparison - but the other features make it outstanding: multi-path levels, so you aren't stuck on a particularly tricky one; and the brilliant synchronization of the music and the dynamic game sound effects. Really impressive.
I don't write many reviews. A game has to be really good before I will bother. This one is awesome. I normally have my sound off for games, but I turn it on for Micron. The game play is simple and challenging at the same time, with puzzles that are just challenging enough, with some speed and skill required periodically. One of my favorites.
Unfortunately, I have been stuck on level 26 for a week now. There should be some sort of solution website page for those who want it...
