Enjoyable (at first)
Well, I'll say I enjoyed most of the first fifty or so levels. After that, the pixel-perfect manoeuvring required is too painful. If you can see *how* a puzzle should be solved then you should be able to solve it quickly: that's my mantra, anyway. Unfortunately, in Geared, even if you know how it's solved, dropping the gears in exactly the right position is a black art all by itself. If you're off by a mm, you invariably have to remove several gears in order to manipulate the one at the bottom. That takes time, and that becomes irritating.
The above is why I rate it 3/5. Don't get me wrong: it's a decent, polished game, and doesn't take up a lot of space (always a plus). Just be wary of the later levels.
Not as engaging as I'd hoped
Interesting at the start, but wish the gears activated something other than other gears. Also wish one could build up credits to get hints rather than having to pay. I'm willing to put up with ads but not to pay for something like this.
Passes the time.
Great game to just get into and play. Easy to get lost in too. A must have for all those "I have a couple of minutes to pass" moments.
