ADVANCED CIRCUITS FOLLOWS THE PATH TO NINTENDO DSiWARE™

The road to Nintendo DSiWare TM goes on for BiP media

Following the success of Viking Invasion, BiP media announces the release of its second game on Nintendo DSiWare TM , called Advanced Circuits. It will only be available via the online shop of the Nintendo handheld.

Complete the circuits

In this original game, win through puzzles of increasing ingenuity. Thanks to your Nintendo DS Stylus, simply draw a closed circuit connecting the whole set of squares. There is only one solution for each puzzle! In order to give you a head start, some of the circuit parts are already shown on the board at the beginning of each round. However, the board size increases as you make progress through the game. Whether you’re on a train, a car or a tank– are you ready to face a new challenge?

At the beginning of each level, sections of the road are already placed on the board. It’s up to you to solve the puzzle before the time limit.

Use your stylus to draw your circuit: building up tracks is made easy!

If you are in a mist, just get rid of some of the sections with a stroke of the stylus.

Congratulations, you’re done! Now you can go face another challenge…

…and keep up collecting trophies!

Test your skills of deduction

Rules may sound simple, but the challenge is much tougher! Indeed, Advanced Circuits offers two different modes for a long-lasting game experience, as well as other useful content. There is a Challenge Mode with 60 predefined game boards of increasing difficulty. The Free Play Mode allows you to practice on any number of randomly-generated puzzles. In the end, 72 unlockable trophies are added to stiffen the challenge. Advanced Circuits also features a tutorial, hints&tips… and even the solutions if you feel like giving up!

Cancel: Erase your last stroke of stylus to reconsider your method if you are not going anywhere.

Clue: Have your circuit corrected or get a precious additional clue to complete the puzzle. Be careful though, this tool also means a 30-second penalty.

Solution: Visualize the solution in a trice! Use this Free Play Mode feature when you’re stuck. Do not hope to unlock the trophies so easily…

Help: Refine your gameplay and win through puzzles thanks to this useful manual you can refer to when needed.

Advanced Circuits is available since May, 24th 2010 in Americas. The European version is planned for June, 11th 2010. If you feel curious, a trailer and a demo version are already available on the official BiP media website:
