Customer Reviews


This game is extremely addicting! It is relaxing and causes one to think instead of react....good training for the brain in our fast paced world. Although you can receive bonus points for speed, it is clear that this is not the object. Slow and steady with methodical thinking gains access to points. I did experience the glitches as mentioned in so many posts in magma level 9 which should be fixed because we paid for this game. It seems to have been several years since it was first mentioned. Possibly the team is working on it, but nevertheless, the creator should offer a refund until it is repaired. We cannot go beyond level 9 due to the errors in programming. It would be fair and just to have it corrected or at least post a message about progress to do so. Great game! I'd love to see one that we can build ourselves to take it to the next level!!!

Magma Level 9 glitched, no support

Gears was once an excellent game, but the developers unfortunately seem to have abandoned this app as they fail to keep up with iOS updates.

Magma Caverns level 9 is impassible now as the graphics that contain tracks and solid surfaces will not load, rendering the level impassible as only as the starting platform and the magma kill zones. Thus, no further progression in the game is possible. I still give two stars since all preceding levels seem to work, which is roughly two-thirds of the game, but it is horribly frustrating that I'm stymied in the middle of the game where it worked on my older devices.

I attempted to contact Crescent Moon Games via their website, but the only support that appears to be available depends on an "FAQ" section that is actually a horribly-spammed blog with thousands of posts dating back to January 2013.

If anyone from CMG can read this, please fix Gears, it was such a good game!

If you are looking to buy, be aware that if you encounter the same problem, you're only getting two-thirds of the game until and if the devs ever fix this.

I love the game but...

I have been a big fan of this game since I was a freshman in high school. I graduated and now I'm in college. The developers totally forgot about the game. 😞 please make new levels if you guys want to make gears 2 I would buy the app again. But please make it as fun as this one and don't take our advice for granted I know that you guys can take advantage of this.
