Electrician, Famicom Disk System

Electrician is a simple wire-connecting game originally made by Synapse Software for Atari 8-bit computers, and later converted to the Famicom Disk System by KEMCO in 1986.

The game is set in New York; the opening cut scene shows a beautiful and poignant pixel representation of the Twin Towers.

Electrician is quite playable. You climb ladders, run around, and jump between levels, so you can run wires between junctions and restore power to the building. Nasties roam the levels and become more challenging to deal with as the game progresses.

Between the vertically-scrolling ‘main’ levels there are also side-scrolling sub levels. To be honest, though, they don’t really add much to the game and are relatively empty in terms of features.

Electrician is an interesting short-term curiosity that is fun to play for a while but not particular challenging.
