Ignore all the stupid people, searched a little bit, made sure PhysX version is correct, OpenAL is installed, works perfectly fine on Win 7 x64. If you want to try the game first to make sure it runs, download the demo!

(seriously, so much stupidity in the reviews)

I think placement was too frustrating to truly enjoy what is otherwise a good adaptation of the Incredible Machine concept.
I found the game was way too picky about what was placed where.

Quick review:

Short Verdict: WORKS FINE ON WINDOWS 7 (just download and play it)! Nice gadgets, but physics part falls short. Frustration ends up being so high that this game can't quite let you enjoy all the potential it has.

Pros:
  • Interesting set of gadgets to work with
  • Online community for potentially extended play
  • A LOT of levels

Cons:
  • Physics mechanics suck
  • No "retry" button, forcing you to replay a level from scratch if you missed the golden gear objetive by literally misplacing an object by an inch. And will you remember /exactly/ where everything was? No.
  • Annoying tutorial Einstein
  • Slightly ugly and not very easy to look and immeadiately understand what's going on. 2D would have been much nicer
  • Almost no active community

The game shows potential but any form of enjoyability is ruined by the clumsy and poorly designed user interface. Rotating objects is a pain because of their small size, you have to click the object extremely precisely; even then, the pop up menu appears after a second or two (the delay becomes very annoying). Attaching ropes to objects is a pain. You have to place the objects first, then click each end of the rope and attach them to the objects. That's about 4 clicks but turns out to be 20 because of that extreme precision required. I have still not been able to figure out how to resize walls. Sometimes they obey the clicks, at other times they stay unresponsive.
The backgrounds and shadows in the game make the levels seem very cramped and cluttered and if it were not for the on screen markers at the start of the level (a bit like how they show play-by-play in sports like soccer), you would never be able to guess which object they were talking about. The shadows can be disabled but the backgrounds can't (or at least I haven't figured that out).
WIth the large number of objects available, you would think there would be comprehensive information about how some of the trickier objects work. No such luck.

The positive points of the game include smooth and beautiful object animations and well implemented physics. Due to the problems listed above, I couldn't progress much into the game to properly appreciate it. It was THAT annoying.

All in all, the game can be enjoyable if the user interface and responsiveness are improved. In its current state, the game quickly becomes irritating.

Yes, it's a good game, but i can't recommend it because :
1 - it is unfair. Sometimes, even if you have the exact solution, it doesn't work.
2 - some of the levels are bugged and can't be winned.
