The Little Crane That Could

By Abraham Stolk

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Driving a crane and operating a crane is so much fun. Improve your spatial skills and solve puzzles in this crane simulator, which is enjoyed by over 13 million people, young and old.

A realistic physics simulation gives you full control over the crane: rotate, elevate, bend, extend and grapple. Use your crane to solve a diverse set of challenges. This crane simulator lets you use mobile cranes, dump trucks, forklifts, skid loaders and even a sky crane helicopter.

The Little Crane That Could features 6 free levels and 21 premium levels (1 in-app-purchase unlocks all levels.)

If you get a grey screen after loading a user level, please do the following: Open settings app, select iCloud tab, log off, log into iCloud again. After iOS7 the iCloud terms were changed, and you may have to accept those again.

You can follow me @BramStolk on Twitter. Please consider providing feedback on the game, good or bad. I need to know what you are thinking. There is a button in the HELP screen that takes you to the feedback page in itunes. Also, there is a FAQ now at

If you open the settings of your device, and go to 'Little Crane' tab, you can reverse the controls to mimic real-life cranes where pulling the lever is boom up, and pushing is boom down.

'The Little Crane That Could' is a game by Abraham Stolk, and it uses the OpenDE physics engine.

Great game but...

I downloaded this free game and played it which it was fun until I was replaying the levels for a seventh time and occasionally it would crash if I worked it too hard. I have a 4th gen IPod as well so it runs decently well, i can run that 3d disassembly game without it crashing. so then I bought the full game. When I bought it, it froze a second after then crashed so I opened it again and it's crashed every time since I bought the full game. Like as soon as the menu appears Crash. I don't have any other things running and it crashes, I reset it, I've done just about as much as the iPod will let me and crashes every time. I want the full game.

When I first had it

When I first had the game on my iPod everything was completely free! Everything was unlocked I loved it that way! Then I broke my iPod by accident and when I got my 2nd one the app was still free so I thought hey why don't I get it again I loved the levels but as it turned out I had to buy the levels and I did but now on my iPhone which I don't have money to buy the levels and can't restore purchases because I forgot my Apple ID the game has no use anymore! It'd be nice if the only thing you had to pay for was the world editor and the rest of the game + the levels were completely free again! And I would appreciate that a lot and I think a lot of people would as well!

I could use some more levels!

Love the game, have had it beat for a while now though and would love to play some more! Please create some new levels! Please create new levels!
