The controls are very bad in this one and it wasn't even a little bit optimized for the PC. There are no, I repeat no video options whatsoever. The graphics are a step down from Crazy Machines Elements and Crazy Machines 2. Also I don't really understand the sense of the rating system. The less parts you use multiple times the better. While this could lead do creative solutions it doesn't make anything really effective. Instead of aiming for the simples solution you just do an overly complicated one to score more points. Again this is a disappointing game for me. Crazy Machines 2 is a lot better!

Unplayable using a mouse. Clearly designed for a touch screen. Would not recommend if you dislike touch screen interfaces. Have completed the XBLA edition which had a much better (but still fiddly) interface. Played this for 40 minutes of which 39 were spent getting frustrated at the controls. Do not buy this game.

Had a lot of fun with this game. Figuring out how to solve problems in unique ways was entertaining. As others have mentioned, it is annoying that the game penalizes for using a single item multiple times when it's the most logical way to solve the puzzle. This results in some really crazy machines (see what I did there?) that aren't practicalat all. This is fun at times, but sometimes I felt ridiculous going through all that trouble just to get more points.

I reccommend the game, but I also wouldn't blame people if they wanted to wait for it to go on sale.

I can't even play it because of the ridiculous amount of lag, I have a GREAT computer that runs most other Steam games without a single hiccup, but on this at max I got 3 fps. I don't know what is up, but this game needs to be FIXED. Oh, and though the music is catchy, it is repetitive, and sounds low quality.
