Ice Breaker is a logic puzzle game which involves charging up power generators before time runs out. Use the left mouse button to turn an element counterclockwise, or right click to turn them clockwise. Two or more connected elements will keep their charge, hence there's no need to build an uninterrupted circuit from the primary energy source.
Scroll the mouse wheel to select a special tool. The wrench tool can be used to repair broken elements, while wirecutters tool allow players to extract elements from the screen and place them into the inventory for later use. A battery tool charges any element on the map. Simply charge an element with a tool icon to collect it.
The game features forty stages and three difficulty settings. Levels must be completed at a higher difficulty in order to unlock more stages quicker.
