So far I've played the first few levels and so far I'm impressed, the tutorial was clear and the controls were responsive. I had to play with mute on as Husband and Daughter were watching Dr Who and there would be world war three if the slightest sound came from my device during the show lol.

I'm hoping to play some more tomorrow so I'll leave more detailed feedback then, the little I've played so far though is all positive.

Challenging.

Runs good on my iPhone 6+, no glitches so far. Game-play is nice and quite challenging sometimes. Music while playing reflects the mind control of player Kinda repetitive over first levels, might be good if tracks would change.
Some psychedelic tracks (Tangerine Dream like) could fit perfectly this game.
Overall one of the games that should be recommended.

Wow! Loving the game!
No problem with the controls. Lovely graphics. Levels are well-designed. New element found already at level 5, and a simple and clear tutorial is optional.
Some suggestions though:
Background music is OK, but is there a way I can listen to my own music during gameplay? I've turned off the Background music in Options, but still my own music is cut off if I try to start it using ios Control Center.
And why is the intro movie played even when coming back to the game the 2nd time? Though it's easy to skip it with a simple touch, it would be nice if the game can detect that the movie has been played before and skip it automatically. After all, it can still be re-played in the nice little movie feature.

My platform: iPad 2, ios 7.1.2.

Thanks again for a nice game! I'm having fun with A Mechanical Story!

we have 4 chapters and each chapter coming with their own background music. I wish we had a bigger budget for this.

We actually haven't thought of that. that is indeed a good idea! We will try to add it in the next update.

Although it may be simple to do that, we didn't want to kill the transition from intro to main menu and since many games doing something similar, we were worried that some players may think that its a bug. Adding skip option was the best way to keep it balanced.

This is a genius game, at first I just think it'll be an easy puzzle game but I was wrong. It's force you to think twice before take any action here, really nice especially when I know the order really matter here.
Game Center hasn't worked yet, probably because the game hasn't released. I would like to see a forward button like in tutorial screen (but not function as the skip button, but really for fast forward the gear speed). One more, I just played till level 7 but I curious to see the next world. Can we unlock the next world after we collect some enough stars like in other puzzle games?
Thanks
