App description: As a lab rat, your life's only constant is the weird experiments performed on you by the team of diabolical monkeys. However, the TV in the lab is tuned to the rap channel 24/7. Like everything worth learning in life, you have learned the secret to happiness by watching TV: it is to collect BLING (and lots of it).

In GearHead, you will guide your little Lab Rat to freedom by leaping from gear to gear, all the while collecting as much bling and cash as possible to buy yourself some ice and nice gold grills.

You will not battle alone as the lab is sprinkled with powerups to aid you: Jet packs, plasma shields, performance enhancing needles, gravity reducers, extra lives, cash multiplers, and bullet-time inducers.

On the flip side, there are many types of gears to deal with: exploding, falling, moving, etc. And don't forget to watch for the patrolling Monkeys set on getting you back in your cage.

As you leap higher and higher, watch for other players' scores and jump higher to set new records!

-a variety of gears
-many powerups
-diabolical monkeys!
-compete with players globally
-in-game global score markers

I don't understand what this game is supposed to be about. A video would help.

I grabbed it and it's a kind of cute variant on the whole Doodle Jump genre.

You latch onto spinning gears and by tapping the screen and tilting your iDevice left and right you'll propel yourself to the next one (you need to carefully time it so you leave the gear at its closest point to your next gear, one mistep and you might get flung back down or in the opposite direction). Your goal, just like Doodle Jump, is to get as high as you can before you fall off the bottom of the screen. Your score is based on a combination of your height and the BLING BLING you manage to snag as you jump about. Again, just like Doodle Jump, there are a number of power-ups and different types of gears.

Cute and stupid.
