Wake up Mr. Moore! HD by The Moonwalls

Hello!
I'm glad to share with you my new game - Wake up Mr. Moore!

To win, you have to be resourceful and keep an eye on all the obstacles and difficulties that will be laid in front of you – rusty alarm clock parts, broken gears, electrical malfunctions and others!

MEET MR. MOORE AND LEARN MORE ABOUT HIS PERILS!
Mr. Moore is a middle-aged white-collar worker, who’s favorite pastime is sleeping until noon. His boss has had enough – if he shows up late one more time, he will be fired. Mr. Moore has been late 29 times this month... and it’s barely the second week!

Who’s responsible for all of this, who is the man behind the curtain, scheming to make Mr. Moore lose his job? THE ALARM CLOCK! That malicious beast has had enough of ringing in at 7 o’clock in the morning... It decided to rebel and keep breaking each and every day.

As the best watchmaker in town you have to be vigilant and make sure that Mr. Moore will keep his job... So you decided to move in under his bed, and – armed with nothing but spare gears - fight the rebellious alarm clock, help Mr. Moore overcome his laziness and put an end to his history of getting late to work!

Am I losing all my high school level math already? How could Mr. Moore be late 29 times after only the second week in the month? Hmm. By my reckoning, he should only have been late 10 times given an average work week. Now on to college level logic: you may remark that Mr. Moore could have been late in previous months leading up to the present day. Yet, if that were true, why mention at all that it is only the second week in the month? How would this information even be relevant. On top of this, it explicitly states that, indeed, he has been late "this month." Redundant. Tautological. Overkill.
Haha. I was kind of stumped while reading the rubric. It threw me for a loop for a second. Anybody else mystified by that "29 times late by the second week?"
On a more topical note, the game's puzzles while repetitive look nicely done. It would be favorable for them if they could offer a bit more variety.

Hi! Thank you very much for your constructive opinion - I'm aware that it's impossible to be late 29 times in just two weeks - I wanted to make it an absurd joke - like in the old parody movies.
Of course, I'll change it if there will be more similar opinions

And about the puzzles: some of them are more complex - you have more pins than you need, or more gears. Also some of them can be finished in more than one way.

Best regards,
Marcin.
