Significantly improved UI.
Minor bug fixes and tweaks.
Great game, some bugs in new update
I like this game a lot. Been playing it for months and months. Easy to play and understand.
Some issues however: for many puzzles you can spend more time finagling with adjusting a gear 1 pixel to the left so it touches/ doesn't touch another gear than figuring out how to solve it. So for some of the puzzles, I don't know if I should spend another 15 minutes shifting the gears over pixel by pixel to make them fit or if I should try another method.
I think level 179 is broken. I saw the solution and in my game the moving gears are already locked together and cannot be moved apart. So I cannot do the solution they show.
Also, please remove the 4 token cost to "Skip Level" when you're skipping a level you already beat. Just annoying when you accidentally use it when you could have used "Level Select" for no cost. Thank you for the game.
Fun for non-mechanical types, too!
Don't consider myself a mechanical type but I enjoy solving the puzzles intuitively. If I get stuck, I will let the game go for a while and then come back. Arranging the gears, complete with sound effects, on the page to get then all moving in spite of various background obstacles is fun. Pixel precision is sometimes necessary, but once you know it's part of the game, you adjust your strategies. Included are options to buy, like skipping levels or seeing solutions. When a puzzle is solved, a pop-up covers your gears so you can't savor it. I understand this is so people can't take pictures, but it's always a little disappointment because I like watching the gears turn.
Great game; Poor device support
This game by itself is superb!
However, consider the following prior to purchasing...
I bought it for my iPad after hearing that it was going to get upgraded to support the iPad's resolution. Once i saw that the resolution upgrade is in fact a separate application, charging $5 more, I was disappointed. When other developers are selling a game that is optimized for both screens, this developer makes you pay twice if you wish to have the same game on your iPodTouch/iPhone and iPad. So, if you have both devices, you either buy the iPhone version for $3 and live with lower resolution on your iPad, or pay $8 to have Geared optimized for both of your devices.
ALSO... You get bombarded by ads at the end of each level EVEN THOUGH YOU PAID FOR THE APP!
