    Tinkering and experimenting is rewarded- it's a joy to see every moving part a half-moment from lining up. The elegance of the later levels, as each piece takes its part in a grander pattern-that's something worth experiencing. Assuming, of course, you can get that far.

    Circadia is a fun puzzle game that forgoes flashy graphics for clean visuals and a simple objective.

    For my part, I liked Circadia, but after about 45 of the game's 100 levels I started to get bored.

    There's no doubting that Circadia's ingenious, of course: at heart it's a clever idea expressed with stylish economy. In the teasing out of that idea, however, it arguably turns into a game where it's the designer, and not the player, who's truly having most of the fun.

    Simple, calming, and fiendish. Relying on color and tone, Circadia is one of the more unique puzzle games out there and is worth a look.
