Leonardo DaVinci was revered for his technical ingenuity and love of engineering. During his lifetime, he managed to produce some 13,000 pages of diagrams, drawings, and notes which combined art and science. He devised many contraptions and engineering wonders ahead of his time, and many which could not be built with the materials and science of the day, including hydraulic pumps, crank mechanisms, and even a steam cannon.
Many of his drawings of machines and contraptions contained missing elements, as if he had not fully developed the drawings and schematics. It is said he purposely left certain items out, or put in parts that would not work, in order to prevent it from being used in harmful ways.
In keeping with the theme, we present DaVinci's Secret Machines, a unique puzzle game in which your goal is to complete the 'machines' and achieve the objectives of the game's levels.
- 30 initial unique levels, with more on the way

What's New in Version 1.4
* Stability improvements
The last update must have fixed the crashing issues because it has never crashed on me once. The game is basically a puzzle based upon the Rube Goldberg machine. Because of this it recalls all those wonderful memories of playing the Incredible Machine.
The best part of this game is how it slowly introduces one element after another. This means there is an excellent learning curve for new players and it doesn't throw a bunch of complexity at once. Absolutely worth the money!
Good but complicated
This is a very good, original and creative physics game but it's very hard to pick-up the play. You have to learn a lot of different shapes and devices, how to draw and place them, keep track of the devices and objects available, then try to remember all of the functions once the tutorial ends. Maybe I've just gotten so used to Angry Birds and the like that my brain is atrophying. Still one of the better physics apps out there and I have a LOT of them.
This game is awesome. These are my favorite types of games. I'm so glad to have run across this. Graphics are great and it runs smoothly on my iPod Touch (iOS 4.1).
