Circulets is Brilliantly Simple Game for iOS & Android
I’m usually not into games. Word games excite me, may be a couple of FPSs, but that’s about it. That’s why it’s always Mikhail who talks about beautiful games here on Beautiful Pixels. Last week, he happened to demo a particularly interesting looking game to me, called Circulets. I was intrigued. And it was really good.
When Mikhail first showed the game to me, he pitched it as an Indie game completely “forged and crafted in India”. Conceptualized, designed & developed by Hashstash Studios, Circulets is a brilliantly simple game that involves two players going head-to-head on the same device. There’s no single-player mode here. The goal is to pull tiny circles or “circulets” towards you within the set time. Pulling the circulet of same color as your side into your zone gets you one point, pulling the other player’s circulet by mistake takes away a point. There’s a bonus circulet that gives you 2 points instead and either player can grab it. The gameplay is simple, but the skill is in winning as many circulets while not letting the other player win any. I’ve been playing with friends and it has been a lot of fun. They get used to the game very quickly and start enjoying it even sooner.
Circulets comes with 7 different themes to choose from — 6 very colorful ones and 1 dark one that doesn’t differentiate between two sides, so there’s no indication which side a circulet belongs to. I prefer the ‘reason’ theme myself. There’s some nice background music playing one the menu and the in-game sounds are really well done too. Circulets is a brilliantly simple game that’s well executed by the Hashstash team. The game releases for both iOS & Android devices today for just 99 cents. You can download the game via the App Store or Google Play.
Note: The game is still propagating though the iOS App Store, so it’ll be a while before it shows up for you, especially on the US Store.
