A PalmOS 5 device is needed for digitized sound support.
Here are some of the devices that will run MicroCircuit fine:

or newer to run.
2. MicroCircuit installation
If you have a device with a high resolution screen like a PalmOne Tungsten, a Zire 71, Zire 72 or a Sony Clie, you should install "MicroCircuit.prc".
If you have a low resolution device like a PalmOne Treo 600, Zire 31 or a m505, you should install "MicroCircuit_160.prc"
Windows Mobile version
The easiest way to install MicroCircuit is to use the Windows Installer
, it will automatically install MicroCircuit on your device.
Macintosh and Linux users can use the CAB

3. How to play
MicroCircuit is very easy to play and does not have a steep learning curve. Select "PLAY" on the main screen and the game begins.
You only need your Stylus in order to play MicroCircuit. The only action you have to perform is to tap the crossroads with your Stylus to avoid a car crash!
If you want to pause or exit the game, just hit any hard key. You can also leave the game, it will restart at the same point you left the game.
