Move the pieces and help the ball to its destination
This game is the lite version of the Apparatus app, in which you need to set up mechanical structures and help move the ball to its goal by moving the wooden items. In order to move them you just need to touch and drag them wherever you want them and also rotate them in the direction you prefer. Also, you can stick the items together to help you reach the goal.
Once you've finished moving and rotating, tap on the play button and check if the ball actually gets to its destination. If not, you can pause it and try again until you're successful.
The game is entertaining, addictive and really challenging but it's unfortunately a paid version. Apparatus was created by Bithack and it's recommended for those who like physic-based kind of games. Try the lite version out and if you enjoy it you can purchase the full one.
Apparatus is a physics game where you have to set up simple mechanical structures to
move one or several marbles to the goal. Use the laws of classical mechanics to complete each level.
Build a space rocket, connect cables from batteries to motors, build bridges, set up teeter totters,
swing with ropes, build vehicles, or just let the marble have a happy roller coaster
ride to the goal!
Use the hammer or the wrench to connect planks, wheels and other objects together.
Use the control panel to control your creations, be it a monster truck, a mechanical rifle or anything YOU can imagine!
Creativity is essential in the gameplay Apparatus. If you don't have the patience to figure
out the challenge levels, why not just play around in the physics sandbox and build whatever
comes to mind? Upload and share your levels in the community section or download and
comment on other players' levels.
The early levels will teach you how to play the game and go through some basic concepts.
The more you progress the more freedom the levels provide, many levels can
be solved in many different ways.
Every time you complete a level, you can go into freebuild mode and modify the level
however you like. If you make the level better, or just harder, you might want to
upload it to the community section and let other people play your modified level.
EXTRA FUN ON TABLETS!
A minimum processor speed of 600MHz is recommended. A screen resolution of 800x480 or higher is recommended but the game runs on lower resolutions.
IF YOU HAVE PERFORMANCE ISSUES:
Disable sound effects and music from the main menu.
If the game still runs slow, when in a level click the menu button and choose "Graphics Settings". Disable shadow effects and put the rope/cable quality at 50%.
GALAXY S II USERS:
Please disable sound/music in the game. The audio backend crashes on this phone and we're working on solving this as soon as possible!

Fun to play if you like this kind of stuff
Some levels really make you think and the ability to build just about anything in create mode makes this game great. No in app purchases make it even better.
Beautifully done. Smooth, clever, captivating are some of the words that come to mind.
Great fun, on my nexus 7 tablet and my phone!
Such a great game. Cant stop playing
