Designed as a blend of circuit board construction and input manipulation, the Prime Mover game takes a clever spin on the puzzle genre with a programming focus. Developed by 4Bit Games, Prime Mover has users transport input values to expecting output ports, creating circuit paths and using a plethora of tools to alter routes and change inputs. This may sound like a boring concept for a video game, but this indie title manages to captivate and entertain in a unique and mentally stimulating way.
The art style of the game echoes the technological aspects of the game as it adopts a cyberpunk 8-bit style. This visual style is reinforced with vibrant colors and mechanical overlays that help build a story around this simple puzzle game. Accompanying the graphics is a relaxing technological-inspired score that both intensifies action and calms the senses.
