"Mechanical puzzle"

Reviewed by / Jan 07, 2013

Cogs is a 2D/3D ground-breaking puzzle game with an original premise: fulfilling mechanical puzzles

Puzzle games lovers often don't pay too much attention to graphics and scenery. What matters in this kind of games is how challenging and entertaining they are. Cogs has merged great 2D/3D graphics, lots of challenging puzzle and an original gameplay. Best of all: it runs smoothly even in medium-end devices. Curious? Keep reading.

The purpose is to complete mechanical puzzles like gears or pipes circuits by using your ability and other items like balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels... and many more. Thus, you'll need to slide tiles to order it in the proper way. Some of the puzzles will be 3D, so you'll need to drag with two fingers to rotate the box. You get a initial moving gear and you have to make the gold one start moving too. Same with the pipes and air circuit.

There are three different game modes, 50 levels each. "Inventor Mode" is like the campaign mode: it begins with easy puzzle to introduce you the gameplay, then it gets more complex. . "Time challenge mode": Move fast, you have 30 seconds to solve each level. "Move challenge mode": every click counts, you only get 10 moves to find the solution.

In each puzzle you'll get one, two or three stars for three variables: solution found, time and moves. This score system makes it even more challenging. You can share your best marks on online leaderboards provided by OpenFeint. In addition, it includes a tutorial and from options you can set music and effects.

In summary, Cogs is what a puzzle game for mobile devices must be. So, must-have.e.

Starting with simple puzzles, players are introduced to the widgets that are used to build machines — gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels, props, and more.

If you finish a puzzle in Inventor Mode, it will be unlocked here. This time, it will take fewer moves to reach a solution, but you only have 30 seconds to find it.

Take your time and plan ahead. Every click counts when you only get ten moves to find a solution.

    Devilishly addictive. Love everything about it. Great games with sophisticated graphics and non-annoying music.
