Semi Conductor is an elegant puzzle game that explores the minimalism of electronic circuitry and the serenity of the subatomic world.
Imagine yourself as an electron. You’re quite small, weighing in at a paltry 9.10938356(11)×10−31 kg, and you want to explore. The world stretches out before you, a vast and seemingly endless void.
In the infinite distance, something shifts.
Suddenly, you are whizzing, rushing, flying across the humming emptiness. You are unstoppable. You are free.
In each level of Semi Conductor, the player must guide their electron, represented in abstract by a white diamond, across a maze of blocks to complete their circuit. The player can only move at right angles and momentum carries them until they encounter a block.
Block serve a variety of functions — some act as an impediment to player progress, while others aid the player in their journey:
  • Resistors: These square blocks stop the movement of the electron forward. After colliding with a resistor, the player can then choose a new direction of travel. Resistors are peppered through Semi Conductor’s levels and provide the player with the basic means to control their trajectory.
  • Cells: These cross-bearing blocks spell doom for a wayward electron. Colliding with a cell causes a massive explosion, ending the player’s game and forcing a restart.
  • Quantum Transistors: These blocks act as teleportation pads, dematerializing the electron and moving it through quantum space at faster-than-light speeds. As the player crosses the threshold of a transistor, they will be instantaneously moved to another point on the circuit.
  • Diodes: These blocks can be the player's saving grace. By passing over a diode, the player effectively destroys all the cells on the map.
Semi Conductor’s levels are presented in packs of twelve to sixteen and each pack has its own unique colour palette.
