Tap anywhere to leap from one pod to the next. You will always leap away from the center of the screen. Be sure not to land on the space between the pods, and don't let yourself get pulled into oblivion at the center of the screen. Capture the fixed dot for an extra 15 points and a temporary safe zone. Capture the moving dot for an extra 30 points (and for the "hard" difficulty a momentary slowdown in time).
The game includes two difficulty levels. You may also mute all music and sound effects. Both portrait and landscape orientations are supported.
Thanks to everyone that has been playing Sprocket! This update addresses an audio glitch and provides some general performance enhancements.
Ratings and Reviews
Elegantly simple and simply elegant
What a remarkably original (at least to me) concept. I love the score and the fact that it changes with taps. Whadaya know, I can make music after all . . . and without any formal training. I am with another reviewer in that I am sometimes bewildered that MY timing for a jump does not fully align with the game’s idea of a successfully timed jump and that the rings are sometimes obscured as they disappear off the screen edges. It has “trained” me to be a little more patient, which is a good thing. Love the glaring omission of stats or high scores. In fact the “score” is kinda pointless, but it does, I presume, give one a semblance of achievement when triple digits are achieved. (Haven’t made it there yet . . . so close.). I highly recommend this game.
Jumps not accurate
I videoed my game play when jumping, and my reflexes many times were dead on when catching the front part of a moving line, but it would kill my turn as if I jumped too soon. This is frustrating, when making a jump that you know touches the next line, all but to start over. But, it’s a simple game and fun to try and beat your existing high scores but I feel inclined to delete it from the frustration of making a great timed jump, all but to be forced to start over on a new attempt.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. I apologize that you were frustrated by the game. When jumping the goal is to get the white disk to fit entirely within the pod after making your jump, i.e it's not enough to simply hit the edge of the next pod. The jump algorithm is a little forgiving in this regard in that you can hang off the edge of the next pod by two or three pixels and this will still be counted as a successful jump.
good game, buggy audio
Don’t have too much to add on the actual gameplay, which others have covered already. It’s straightforward and fun, with a good progression of difficulty on easy mode. BUT I have found the audio to have lots of annoying glitchy pops and clicks on iPhone 8, iOS 11.2.1. I am sure the audio issue is app-specific, as this doesn’t occur in music or any other game from this phone.

I apologize for the audio glitch. This is corrected as of version 1.8.
