If you’re someone who enjoys playing puzzle games, perhaps you should try playing Geared for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Geared is a game where you have to solve puzzles, in which you have to place different sized gears on a grid that contains a spinning yellow gear and one or more blue gears, with a goal of making the blue gears spin, as well. Once you’ve connected the yellow gear to the blue gears, using the different sized gears, the blue gears will begin to spin and you will have completed the level.
However, each level only allots you a certain number of of the five different sized gears that you’re allowed to place around the grid to try and make the blue gears spin. As you progress to higher levels, there will be added challenges, such as a red area where you are not allowed to place gears, which make the game more difficult.
You can, however, drop gears into the red area from above it. There are also similar purple areas that you aren’t allowed to place gears in. However, unlike the red areas, the purple areas can move if you tap on them, although they can only be moved where there is a “track” for them to move.
Also, depending on the level you’re on, there may be more blue gears that you are required to make turn, which may add to the difficulty of the game. Another challenge that is included in the game are orange gears, with arrows on them, that you are unable to move, like the other gears.
On the menu page of the game, there is an option to select your level, from 1 to 150, with 50 more levels that you can purchase in app for $0.99.
If you’d like to try playing Geared, you can download it from the iTunes App Store for free.
