Thanks for the post. :-)

I'm really excited about this version, it's actually taken up a chunk of my time with all of the little improvements I gave it behind the scenes.

At that price, the app should actually consume a good chunk of your time. At least you didn't append "HD" to the title.

I spent that much on coffee today dude. I'd hate my life if $4.99 was a lot of money for a game as good as Geared.

Hi. Could I ask two questions:

1) Is it the same puzzles as the iPhone version?

2) Does it unlock all the puzzles from the start, or does it force you to solve earlier ones before you can go on to the later ones?

Thanks.

Same but bigger and better!

Yes, all puzzles unlocked from the start.

Wow. Ok. Love life your own special way.


I bought the original version when it came out, and was not impressed by its bugginess (e.g. puzzles solved in a state of impossible gear overlap). The game was decent, but the let-your-creative-side-run-amok part of the sales pitch is bunk; just because there is no fixed grid doesn't mean that the play is evolutionary in any way. In practice, the lack of a grid leads to a greater need to repeatedly drop the same pieces from points that eventually prove to have been solution-viable in the first place. In that sense, the "freedom" is illusory.

Thanks for buying my game. I sent you a PM :-)

No, instead it is draped across the icon. More & more iPad versions of games & apps are starting to do this, taking a nice looking icon & putting "HD" across it. Sadly, I think the days of simple & clean looking springboard icons will not be found on the iPad.
