There once was a time when life was simple, uncomplicated, and pleasurable. This statement also applies to the video games industry. When video games went 3D, development costs soared, games were complex, and everything became political. But there are some games developed even today, that reminisce of old school methods; a period when simplicity rules over all. Although a 3D game, Live Wire presents itself with that thought in mind.

First and foremost, Live Wire is purely a puzzle title, and lacks any form of story line. You begin the game as one of what can only be described as an ugly fish. From there on in, you can choose to participate in a number of themed puzzle arenas that consist of Spooky, Space and Wild Wild West. Your game takes place on a blank grid in which three other fish are participating. After beginning, it’s up to you to turn over the tiles to make them correspond to your colour by running live wires around them. But beware, there are other obstacles positioned on the grid lines that will hinder your progress. There are also miscellaneous tiles that can have varied effects, including bomb tiles that will begin a five-second countdown once the live wire is drawn.

Live Wire’s best asset by far is its multi-player option. Winning a battle against a real life friend or foe increases the satisfaction playing Live Wire greatly. Such a quality will no doubt be the selling point of the game.
