Micron has been out for Linux for a little while, but it hasn't seemed to gain a big following. Hopefully this new and updated Steam release will fix that.

Thew new releases not only features gamepad support, but it now has a level editor too. I can't wait to see what crazy sounding levels people can create in it.

The game is actually quite interesting after playing it for a while I've grown to love it. As usual for any puzzle game the first few levels are really quite easy to lull you into a false sense of security. It's like you have a security blanket that is quickly whipped away from you as when you get to the later levels you first reaction turns from "okay i can do this" to "what the hell is that!". Luckily the lovely music in the game will attempt to keep you calm as the bullets smash into the wall.

- Game design that blends puzzle and rhythm elements
- 63 levels to test your puzzle-solving skills
- 7 level themes, each with unique music and sounds

Grab Micron from the developers directly for links to Steam & Humble Store's widget too if you prefer to buy there.

I've put a few hours into Micron and I really like it so far. It's very simple gameplay wise, but as you say offers a real challenge once you get a bit into it. The developer is also very responsive and added (admittedly extremely basic) keyboard controls when I asked about it on the Steam forums.

There has really been a ton of new and good puzzle games being added on Steam this year, with games like Blocks That Matter (new to Linux), Full Bore, MouseCraft, Hexcells, LYNE and Micron being among my favorites.

I grabbed this one when it was first released on Desura last year, I've beaten most of the puzzles but it was surprisingly harder than it looks especially on the later puzzles.

Happy to see it on Steam. :D

I hope this little gem will get a second life thanks to Steam Workshop :)
