Electropocalypse-logoElectropocalypse, a game about electricity. Most of us take electronics for granted, but the inner working of circuits is an exciting and mysterious world. In Electropocalypse you learn the magic of circuit design through one of everyone’s favorite activities: blowing stuff up!

In Electropocalypse, you are apprentice to the world famous Professor Tesla. You dream of mastering electricity but you usually find yourself melting your projects in a plume of smoke. A strange disturbance causes everybody to forget everything about electricity, except you. You are humanity’s only hope to solve this mystery, fixing circuits along the way. You will need to defuse bomb circuits, build Professor Tesla’s super weapon, and save your city from chaos and destruction.

Electropocalypse is a puzzle game where each puzzle is a circuit that needs to be fixed or altered. The circuits are “live” so you must be careful—wire something the wrong way and everything blows up in a shower of sparks. Although it’s kinda fun to blow up your circuits and see all the pretty lights, this is not just pyromaniacal entertainment—to build safe and reliable circuits, every engineer must understand where the limits are. And what better way to find them than to cross them! This chapter in Electropocalypse covers: switches, current and voltage, resistors, using voltmeters and ammeters, series vs. parallel circuits, polarity, and Ohms law.

Do you have the circuit skills to save your honor, your pet robot, and your city? Find out now—play Electropocalypse!

    This sounds awesome! I’m a big kid and have always wanted to understand electronics, which are a mystery to me. I think I’ll have my daughter help me out too!
    Thanks Stratolab!

    I just finished the demo version for iPad and thought the game was really cool! I’m just a beginner electronics hobbiest which is what originally lead me to download the game! I saved the guy from blowi himself up, which lead me here to buy the rest of the game…which is too bad, I thought there was much potential for learning something through a fun game, but alas I have no money to play more…

    Your game doesn’t work any more on Macs, which is a bummer because I like to use it in my class.

    Hi Jay—

    Can you describe the problem? What is the last thing you see before it breaks?

    Oh, hey. It’s me again. The program opens on my computer and the levels show up on the bottom, but none of the other graphics show. The levels will start but I can’t see any wires or bulbs etc.

    Hi SallyShaper—

    Unfortunately this is a side project and I haven’t had the time yet for a Linux port. I need to get more customers to make that happen and I haven’t been very good at marketing.

    Perhaps you can help me with the marketing—where did you hear of Electropocalypse? What interests you about it? If you had not heard of Electropocalypse but you were looking for such a game, where would you look?
