Circles We don’t see a ton of games released in Cydia mostly due to the App Store however, every once in a while, we see a new game in Cydia. Yesterday Circles, a memory game, showed up in Cydia.

Circles is a simple memory game that starts with one circle and continues to add one circle at a time. The object of the game is to tap on the circle that was added. At first, this is simple task but as the levels progress, it gets a little trickier remembering which circles were already there and detecting which circle is new. [Read more…]

Once the numbers disappear, you then tap the circles in order starting with the circle that contained the lowest number and ending with the circle that contained the highest number. The game starts off easy with just three numbers and a slow disappear rate however, each wave gets a little faster with-in the levels and each level adds another number!
