Crazy Machines Golden Gears

JohnBCrazy Machines Golden Gears is a new addition to the Crazy Machines series of physics building/puzzle games. The franchise has made the leap from downloadable desktop game to the mobile world, bringing with it all the challenge, creativity and, well, crazy machines you can imagine. If Rube Goldberg only knew the kind of legacy he would leave to the casual gaming world.

Crazy Machines Golden GearsIf you've played the other Crazy Machines games or the granddaddy of all contraption-building games The Incredible Machine, you'll know exactly where to begin. Each level has a simple goal to accomplish, things like popping a balloon, getting a toy truck to the exit, or guiding a fragile vase to a marked platform. You do this by arranging an inventory of over 75 different contraptions, each more unusual than the last. How about dropping a basketball on that wind-up mouse to hit a button to set off the laser that pops the balloon? Or wiring up a logic gate that powers a boiling kettle that will move a turbine that pulls a conveyor belt? Yeah, you can do that. And it's awesome.

As the name suggests, golden gears play a big part in the mobile release of Crazy Machines. You're rewarded heaps of them based on how efficiently you solved each level, and in order to unlock additional stages, you've got to spend gears like mad. Two simple in-app purchases can help you in that department, and along with them you can gain access to a level editor as well as user-made levels. There are hundreds of custom stages to play, so if the main game isn't enough, Crazy Machines can still deliver!

Crazy Machines Golden Gears has made an easy transition to the mobile realm. Touch screen controls are flawless and it couldn't be simpler to place, arrange or remove items from the inventory. Now all you have to do is figure out how to solve these intricate puzzles and you're good to go!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

Thanks for including the links to the Amazon Appstore versions! My tablet (a MachSpeed Trio Stealth Pro) runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but the manufacturer still hasn't been able to negotiate recognition for their users at Google Play.

So, Amazon's where I get about 98% of my apps. Searching for an app by name is quick and easy, but if nothing else (since I mostly visit JiG on my laptop rather than the tablet) now I'll know which games will definitely be available in the store I can access!

Just for the sake of completeness I want to add that this game is also available for Windows 8 and Windows RT in the Windows Store

I like the idea. Kind of a bit sticky on the movement. I really like a game when it works well; the star rating for levels deters from wanting to play. Oh I didn't get three stars :(. I don't know why, but if you complete a level even with less stars you can play again with all the objects available.
