Description: The Wire is a casual puzzle game with plenty of levels, which is designed to suit the needs and abilities of players of all ages. Play with the electronic background music, you just need to move the controller to go forward. The most import thing is making sure it is going on the track. To win a level, you just need to reach the end point before time up. That’s it. We hope you guys enjoy it as much as we do!

Review: This might sound odd, but the biggest problem with ‘The Wire’ is that it has been simulated too accurately. Let me explain, this game is a classic carnival game called Buzz Wire and the idea is to move your controller from point A to point B without touching the sides or indeed anything else. The problem is this game requires at least 3m squared to play as it is 100% room-scale only! No teleportation, no forward movement, you either have the space to move in the real world or you don’t finish the game!

It’s a good idea for a freebie I suppose, but for most people, this will be almost unplayable. Just a simple update could have made this game great, but alas this looks like it has been abandoned a long time ago. Such a shame as it really isn’t that bad despite its biggest flaw.
