Resistor (XBLIG) Review

Resistor is available now on the XBLIG Marketplace for 80MSP.

This game seems like an ok, original idea for a game. You have to connect the bits to conduct the correct electrical flow. In theory this game could have been pretty good. There isn't really any other game like it. In practice however the game feels pretty stale.
The game features 90 levels, something which sounded like a positive. But it is 90 levels of doing the same thing over and over again. There just doesn't feel like much of a point to it. I know that that isn't always the most important thing when playing a game, but when a game is lacking much else it does start to feel like a chore.
Overall I don't feel that you'd be missing out by not getting this game. It is only 80MSP which as I've said before does give a game an extra point for value. But I'm unsure as to how much this game is worth.

4/10 SKIP IT!
A code was provided for the purpose of this review. 


  1. Hey! You're back! I added you onto my reading list awhile ago, and was hoping to see some more posts from you. I'm doing the same thing you're doing at my blog, as I'm a writer looking to use a blog to establish a platform to promote my writing later on when things get to that stage. Or, at least I'm assuming that's what you're doing, based on your about me blurb. <_<

    Anyway, when you add that a code was provided for the review... how are you getting those? Do you approach the developers and ask? If you'd prefer not to discuss things like that in your comments you can just email me,

    Anyway, glad to see you back!

  2. Hey! Yep I've returned from the hell that is no Internet connection :)
    Yeah, that's the plan anyhow. To be honest I'm hoping to always keep this going, it's a passion of mine and it keeps me busy.
    I do email developers. Normally requires a google search or whatever if I haven't contacted that dev before. But if you don't ask you don't get, right?
    I wish you all the luck with your blog, if there's anything I can help you with give me a shout. :)
