Under rating threshold (show) I'd love an "undo" function, a way to rotate blocks of components and another key than shift to switch between tools (because for some unknown reason my flash player fails to detect shift properly).

Under rating threshold (show) You need to make it clear that this game is based on transistors and stuff, that way people won't get so intimidated by the tutorial. That said, the tutorial isn't that great either, you should just have a bunch of diagrams instead.

Under rating threshold (show) Just wish it had a "debug" level where you could control the inputs yourself. It'd be pretty useful for figuring out how to build a gate or circuit without just going and looking it up.

Under rating threshold (show) wuold be great if there was a mode, when you can see the state of your circuit it any mode/ Like you click at the verification plot and the game shows you all the voltage at that moment

Under rating threshold (show) Quinn's Review: I'm not ashamed to say that Kohctpyktop defeated me - I can't finish it. I approached it as if it were a programming game, and that worked a little, but the higher designs are just slightly too alien to me for me to be able to nut them out. Which is a real shame, because I love engineering games, and this is a good one - but it could use some improvement. I disagree that you need an engineering degree to play Kohctpyktop (thought it probably helps); the real issue here is that the game is not user-friendly: the tutorial is not that helpful, the initial levels do not teach you the basic building blocks of the game (as they should), and the UI is not only unpolished but is downright confusing - this game could have been much easier to get your head around. But for all that, if this is something you can get your head around, it's well worth your time - the sense of achievement is phenomenal.

Under rating threshold (show) This is a good game and it should be interesting to a lot of people who use computers every day but don't have the faintest clue how they work, but you really need to playtest it and tweak it to make it more user friendly, that isn't to say you haven't achieved a lot in this department already, there are already a lot of suggestions here, my suggestion is that you make it so you can switch signal gates and off whenever you want so that you can quickly see all the wires and silicons are connected to it and how they interact, so you don't have to go through a verification test over and over when checking things.

Under rating threshold (show) 2. Tutorial - The movie concept is awful, how about a darn click to continue step by step, along with a try it yourself portion. I understand the first level is a tutorial level, but come on, just a single tiny level for each gate type, with a good explanation of the concept of that gate. Or at least an auto-pause in the movie so you can read the text without having to pause it yourself! 2a. Optimization Tutorial - This would be a nicety that would solve a lot of frustration. It could just be a brief page on using the least amount of switches, and maybe another page on how to use delay to your advantage to even out the verification graphs.

Under rating threshold (show) When I first started playing this game, the initial levels were extremely tough to navigate. This was of course due to the lack of good instructions on how to play the darn game. Now, a few weeks later, I finally finished up a (rather messy, but functional) 8-bit adressable SRAM, and I'm loving this game. You get used to the controls, and when you figure out what the parts DO (by experimenting, or looking at other people's solutions) you will find that this game offers alot of fun and complex puzzles. I even found this game to be somewhat educational towards understanding electronics around you (maybe even somewhat how computers work). I would love to see this kind of game implemented as a feature on the smaller scale where you have to combine smaller parts of electronics on a larger piece of machinery.

Under rating threshold (show) Perhaps in a future remake of this game, you could give complete beginners some helpful tips on how to create things beyond "if" and "if not" gates. I can't imagine how you're supposed to create a power-on reset generator using only those two components, but I'd be willing to learn if the game would only teach me.

I too wish this had a better tutorial, because this is something I want to learn about and this would be a good way to get rudimentary knowledge as a starting point. Refer to NotJack's top rated comment for very important information. And refer to wikipedia's articles on boolean operators and logic gates to find out more clearly what your objective is.
