Circles is a relaxing puzzle game that can still be surprisingly tricky, sometimes exasperatingly so. Making precise movements while taking the level’s rotation into account and also keeping the speed up because the circles in the level grow larger the faster you move can take more than a few tries to get past, but those sections are the exception to the move laid-back nature of the rest of the game.
Circles may not be the most feature-packed game, but it sets out with a simple mission, accomplishes it well, and even throws in extra stuff. Maybe I’d have liked to see some more levels, but I still enjoyed what I played. I wouldn’t have a hard time recommending it to anyone, either; it doesn’t matter what language you speak or what age you are, because Circles has got you covered.
And that’s the kicker. Circles is great. It feels smooth, and it’s a blast to play. However, when the only things incentivizing you to continue past the natural ending are Steam Achievements, it feels a bit shallow. Personally, I can see myself returning to Circles every now and again for quick burst play or to go for faster times, but without any sort of in-game time tracker, even that is uncertain. Regardless, it is a fun and interesting little gem well worth an afternoon if you have the time for it.
