Really engaging game

I really like his game. I just wish there were a way to restart it. At the higher levels when there are no more possible moves, I have to wait for the timer to run out (sometimes for several minutes).

Developer Response ,

Sorry it's not very obvious, but if you tap the progress bar, you'll get a menu with the option to start a new game.

A Masterpiece

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this game to mobile! Finding this just now really made my day. I used to play this on my mac all the time in the mid 90’s, and I jumped with excitement as soon as I saw a screenshot of it in the app store! It has been ported beautifully, and all the sounds are just as I remember them. This game is a classic in my book, and I’ll be recommending it to everyone! Again, THANK YOU!!

A fun and addictive classic that is still fresh today

I am so grateful to this developer. I got addicted to Short Circuit years ago and have been looking for a modern version ever since. For those who don't know the game, it's like Shisen-Sho on steroids -- with a time limit, unique graphics, and additions like moving tiles, metal blocks and power-ups.

This has the same graphics (a little slick-ified for iOS), sounds and gameplay as the original.

My one wish is for adjustable SFX volume so that one could listen to music while playing.

This is well worth the small cost to discover or rediscover an awesome game!
