Even with as many varieties of puzzle games as I’ve played on the Switch I’m happy to say that none of them have been quite like Circuit Dude. Similar in many regards to a traditional box pusher, I don’t know if it’s the theming that’s simply good at disguising traditional elements or just that its approach is a bit different so it feels like a fresh take. You’ll progressively be introduced to different components that would go on a circuit board that will act as obstacles to you filling in the proper slots. While initially the order or path you may take to do so won’t make much difference it doesn’t take long for every move to have a serious consequence as you’ll find there’s only one path that’s going to successfully allow you to complete the board and get to the exit without getting trapped. If you like puzzles that are focused on process and the order you do things in, trying to break them down in order to plot an optimum route this provides that, but with a very friendly theme as well overall.
