Circulate was my second game as an indie. It's a throwback to some puzzle I got as a kid, a circular plastic thing filled with water which had a cocktail glass and some stuff you had to try get into the glass. Anyway, here's the game blurb ...

Circulate brings you a fun twist on puzzle games. Spin entire levels around to circulate spheres, which can be controlled, collected or destroyed depending on each level's objectives.

There's plenty to master in Circulate, including Color Spheres, Containers, Stop & Move Spheres, UFOs, Bombs, Bubbles, Crystals, Magnets, Dice, Doors, Forcefields, Metal Spheres, Fire & Ice Spheres, Pod Generators, Tilt Meters, Shapes and Black Holes!

Oh my gosh! I randomly remembered this game and had to look deep in my e-mail history to find it... I bought this game as a kid back in 2005 when you were named PiEyeGames. Good times :) 

Hey there, I'm sorry I missed your message. Hope you're still around Itch.io!

Why did I rename from PiEyeGames? I have no idea. It's amazing when folk recall the games from when they were kids, get it a fair bit with Kitten Sanctuary, but great to hear there were some Circulate fans out there :D

Maybe I should rename again, Clockwork Pixels seems a bit cold compared to PiEye, looking back.

Cheers : )

I've been searching for this game for years!! I had to dig through old WildTangent game listings using Wayback Machine to find the name and I'm so happy to have finally found it!

I remember this game having a level editor though... am I just imagining things or was that real?

Hey there, thanks for the re-purchase!

Can't believe there's so many people here who remember the game, considering it never sold all that well : P

It did have an editor! All the games share a common engine (custom direct-x thing). Unfortunately the UI-heavy editors (Cubology had one too) developed enough issues during an update a few years back, that I decided to remove the menu link. Never thought anyone would notice!

If you *really* want to see the editor, let me know and I'll take a look into it : )

I'd love to try out the editor again, regardless of any issues!


Ha, I was afraid you'd say that! ...  will look into it soon, see how broken it is : D


It was quite broken :'(

I used to play this game a bunch as a kid. Awesome to finally find it again after so long!

Hey, thanks for that, great to hear about folk playing the games when they were little ... can't believe it's been that long (I'm so old!) : )

I was looking for a full version of this game from a while! Thanks for uploading :D Great game! Had a lot of fun playing this years back! This would work great on a mobile too.

Hey, thanks for the comment/purchase : )

I ported some of the games to iOS/Android, but not Circulate because a publisher had already optioned the game for mobile . Unfortunately it never appeared.

Hope you enjoy the game!


I have the most distinct memories playing this game as a kid, but I could hardly remember what the game was even called until I saw itch.io's Twitter. Getting to play this again fills me with such gleeful nostalgia, and I'd say it still holds up great! I simply couldn't take it for free, so consider my purchase a "thank you" for the childhood memories in this blast from the past :)


Sorry I missed this post at first!

Ha, I occasionally get nostalgic messages about Kitten/Puppy Sanctuary cause of the cute characters, but this is a first for Circulate : D

I hope it lived up to your memories and thank you for purchasing it ... it's much appreciated!

Show post...


Thanks for the video! It's fun watching someone else play the game ... terrifying ending though : )

Thanks to whoever just bought the game! That's the first time anyone's bought one of my games under Pay What You Want terms ... I feel so 'indie' right now : D


Oh, good! I haven't thrown my mouse at the wall for several years now. And now that I use wireless mice, there's  really no reason not to revisit this classic! Nice to see you back!


Ha, you should get quite some distance with a wireless : )

I was play-testing before putting the game up and thought some of the magnet levels might be impossible due to hacky coding and faster PCs ... but managed to complete them using a constantly-spinning-zero-gravity technique, so all should be good!
