Build a chain reaction to get your goal

CM GG THD is a diabolic machine-like game in which you have con fulfill a predetermined goal thanks to the items you have at your disposal and your own cleverness. Essentially, they are everyday objects such as toys, wooden pieces and notions that, when used together, create new combinations to make a marble roll, a toy truck dash or a china vase to be blown off. It's very important to know which items are rope friendly and which aren't, as ropes play a key role in the game. Fortunately, you'll get tips about new items as you advance.

There are more than 40 challenges in increasing difficulty, every one of them allowing multiple solutions and more than 60 items available. Some advanced stages are really tricky and play with wind or gravity, making this game quite hard and brainy, what is deeply appreciated. In upcoming updates, There's included a level creator and a way to share your devilish ideas. Long story short, it isn't an original concept, but it's taken far beyond other much simpler games. User interface and animations may feel clumsy at first, but there aren't any relevant flaws.

In the end, recommendable for anyone looking for no-nonsense gaming.

    Also, I would like a larger play set and play space. I seem to be just about to finish a nicely complicated device when WHAM! I'm not allowed to place anymore objects. I know there has to be a limit, but I'll always want more space and things.

    Pull off a simple elegant design as it seems the level creator intended, crap score. Fudge together a monstrosity that makes little sense and somehow wobbles to completion, great score.

    Great game when I can get it to work. I have had to uninstall and reinstall 3 times now.

    The scoring system doesn't even know how to score for you and there is no free will how to put your stuff. Principia is a lot better
