Micron is a game with a unique blend of puzzle and rhythm gameplay. Place pieces on the board to deflect bullets of energy that fire to the beat. Guide the bullets to the exit through 51 challenging levels -- and 12 bonus levels -- featuring a variety of distinctive soundscapes. Your solutions create the music.

Micron began as a game created for Kongregate's 'Project Eden: Experience the Music' game contest, in which it won 2nd place. The judges included Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ and LUMINES, and representatives from Ubisoft, Gamespot, and Kongregate.

"Classic visual like the Famicon but experiencing the process of sound effects evolving into the music felt really good. The harder the game, the more exciting the music gets--this was blended perfectly." - Tetsuya Mizuguchi

I finished all stages except for 49.. Am I really expected to hit all 4 switches at the same moment??

Btw, stage 51 mirror sounds sound kind of off-tune, ruined the otherwise nice climatic final stage for me :/

I've solved all levels except 49 - every couple of weeks I give it another try, but I'm still not able to hit all four switches at the same time. Driving me nuts...

You have to meet four balls inside one portal. Let them exit in the axis of the four switches. Good Luck mate.
Kudos to the developers for such a great game.

I realized that all four balls have to enter one portal and exit out the other at the same time but just couldn't figure out how to do that. Thanks to your comment, I went back and tried a few more times and finally got it. Great puzzle game!

I have a little problem. When I played in this game I had this error: "GetThreadContext Failed" two times . I worry about this because I have played two short times.

Are you using Kaspersky antivirus by any chance? Apparently it can cause this error in games that were made with Unity (such as Micron).

No, I'm using Avast antivirus. Last time I didn't have this error but I played once after problems with game.

Unfortunately, this is a core issue with the Unity engine and it is known to happen with various antivirus programs. Unity says they'll have a fix in an upcoming update (no date given but I'm guessing it's a few weeks away, at least). The best thing I can do is release a new version of Micron when the Unity update becomes available. Not sure how useful this is to you but there's more info here:
