About This Game

Cogs is a puzzle game where players build machines from sliding tiles. Players can choose from 50 levels and 3 gameplay modes. New puzzles are unlocked by building contraptions quickly and efficiently.

  • Inventor Mode: Starting with simple puzzles, players are introduced to the widgets that are used to build machines — gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels, props, and more.
  • Time Challenge Mode: If you finish a puzzle in Inventor Mode, it will be unlocked here. This time, it will take fewer moves to reach a solution, but you only have 30 seconds to find it.
  • Move Challenge Mode: Take your time and plan ahead. Every click counts when you only get ten moves to find a solution.

Superb game to engage the brain and think "sideways". Spatially gifted people will particularly enjoy this one!

Despite the steam time counter, I've actually played this game for a few hours. I don't usually like puzzle games, but I got this one though a humble bundle deal. Its well done and interesting. So, this is one of the few puzzle games of this sort that I will actually recommend. Realistically, and like so many titles on steam, this belongs on my mobile phone, not my PC.

Intuitive controls for a puzzle game, Cogs is all about mechanics. Pretty engaging and entertaining, the different success quantifiers (number of moves, time to complete) make you want to replay levels to get a better score. Overall a fun game!

A very entertaining game, that is until you get stuck. I think the time should be a bit higher though, giving the player a bit more time to complete the puzzle.
