Logistics is a physics puzzle game from Robb Akerson. Using only the most basic features from building games such as The Incredible Machine or Crazy Machines, it's your job to move objects around the screen, one piece of candy or one block of ice at a time. It takes a bit of fiddling to make sure everything is in the right place, but Logistics is built with casual players in mind, providing a good logical challenge but never making you feel frustrated.
Your mission is to get the stuff from the red dispenser into the green dispenser. You do this by placing simple structures like conveyor belts, fans and springboards, then adjusting their angle until everything's just right. When the path is prepped, tap the red dispenser to plop out an object (what that object is varies between levels) and watch gravity do its thing. On the way to the exit you'll want to try nabbing special icons to go for that perfect score, but otherwise just get everything in the green dispenser and move on!
Probably the most appealing thing about Logistics is the artwork. Everything looks like it was ripped straight out of an I Love Lucy episode, right down to the icons and menu screens. It sets a fantastic mood for the game, keeping it lighthearted while you fuss over the perfect placement for a conveyor belt. There are currently three themed stages to play, each with a dozen levels. Three more are listed as "coming soon", and we can't wait to see what Santa's Workshop or Clockwork Apple brings us!
