Need hints or walkthroughs for the puzzles not covered on YouTube.
Probably need to find a better place to ask about it since the iphone version is a bit out of scope of the Arduboy, you might try asking @crait on twitter or PM him.
I did ask him to help me with level 30, but I don’t want to keep asking him. Am I better off getting an Arduboy?
Everyone is better off with an Arduboy.
Thank you for your help. However, when I look at them, the screen is so much smaller than my 6S iPhone. If you don’t mind, lme know why I would want to plan a small device and if there is a larger screen. Even though I’m a baby boomer, I like to play games, especially puzzle games, and circuit dude is one I especially like. Where can I find out if there’s an A-boy screen that’s bigger.
As far as I understand it the levels are the same? I don’t know if anyone out there has done a video solving all the puzzles?
The Arduboy won’t help you more than the iPhone version will. The iPhone version has built-in hints as well as some different levels that you won’t find on the Arduboy!
@Scharley, you can feel free to bother me as much as you want. I actually really enjoy talking about Circuit Dude. I find it really fun, even though I already know all the levels really well.
Maybe after I finish putting Circuit Dude onto the Palm Pilot, I’ll make a YouTube video of a playthrough and maybe a developer commentary. Any kinds of stuff you’d like me to cover?
So how about adding those levels to the Arduboy? (Lack of memory isn’t an excuse.)
There are two teleporters in the PC version, which are differentiated by color, which the Arduboy can’t replicate. I guess I could make different sprites for them, though.
The main issue is a lack of screenspace. When I put the game onto the PC, I realized that I could fit an extra horizontal row at the bottom of the screen, and puzzle games as complex as Circuit Dude with a scrolling screen are not fun.
In colours differentiable by colourblind people I hope…
(I’m half joking, half serious. Colourblindness in video games is actually a pretty serious issue.)
I definitely understand that and agree. In video games, a different color is not enough to broadcast that something is different. In Circuit Dude, the teleportation pads use patterns that are slightly different shape and move in a different pattern, alongside being different colors. This would be even harder to reproduce on the Arduboy since the sprites are 8*8. I would have to make the two look drastically different.
