BIP MEDIA SHOWS THE WAY TO ADVANCED CIRCUITS

Welcome aboard! Following the success of Viking Invasion on Nintendo DSiWareTM, BiP media is proud to announce the release of its second game, Advanced Circuits. It will be exclusively distributed on Nintendo’s handheld online shop. Whether you’re on a train, a car or a tank– are you ready to face a new challenge?

Established in 2004, BiP media is a French studio specialized in family games. In their second creation for Nintendo DSiWare™, you can test your skills of deduction in a completely original way! Advanced Circuits is a virtual board game in which you literally have to find a way to solve puzzles. Your goal is to connect the whole set of squares by drawing up track pieces with your Nintendo DS stylus. In order to give you a head start, some of them are already shown on the board at the beginning of each round.

Complete the circuits

Rules may sound simple, but the challenge is much tougher! There is only one solution to each puzzle. Solving puzzles equals to“the faster, the better”: you get higher scores if you complete the circuits in no time! In addition, the board gets bigger as you progress in the game. That means the first 4x4 game board you will come across is not likely to lie around… and may turn into a 144-squares board in the end!

The title offers two different modes for a long-lasting game experience, as well as other useful content:

• Challenge mode: 60 predefined game boards of increasing difficulty;

• Free Play mode: select the game board size and practice on any number of randomly-generated puzzles;

• 72 awards to unlock;

• Other features such as a tutorial, hints&tips, and even the solution if you feel like giving up!

Advanced Circuits is planned to hit digital shelves on May 24th 2010. The European release will follow shortly afterwards. If you feel curious, a trailer and a demo version are already available on BiP media official website:
