App description: **Fourbar Lite listed as Top 10 Free iPhone Apps of the Week, The Smartphone App Review

"Definitely fun...Fans of Angry Birds should like this because it has a fair amount of trial and error." -Tom Cutrofello, gottasolveit.blogspot.com

Fourbar is a game that tests your mechanical intuition. It's inspired by the four-bar linkage, one of the fundamental components of mechanical design. Players use simple gestures to manipulate the geometry of the fourbar and draw shapes that are presented on the screen (represented by yellow stars).

Fourbar includes 48 levels of varying difficulty split across 3 groups. In the first group, Freestyle, no restrictions are placed on the fourbar configuration or path. In the second group, Grounded, one or both ends of the fourbar are locked in place. In the third group, Redstars, obstacles are placed in the path and must be avoided.

Best times are saved for each level.

AnarKitty's comments:
Hi all - I'm a mechanical engineer (and aspiring app developer) and this is my first app, Fourbar.


Fourbar is a puzzle-style game that tests your mechanical intuition. It's based on the four bar linkage, one of the fundamental components of mechanical design (and something that every engineer learns about in college). Players use simple gestures to manipulate the geometry of the fourbar and draw shapes that are presented on the screen.

Hope you like it! And I'd love to hear any feedback.

A demo vid would be helpful for those on the fence and interested in the game mechanics/gameplay.
