App description: Driving a crane and operating a crane is so much fun. Improve your spatial skills and solve puzzles in this crane simulator, which is enjoyed by over 13 million people, young and old.

A realistic physics simulation gives you full control over the crane: rotate, elevate, bend, extend and grapple. Use your crane to solve a diverse set of challenges. This crane simulator lets you use mobile cranes, dump trucks, forklifts, skid loaders and even a sky crane helicopter.

The Little Crane That Could features 6 free levels and 21 premium levels (1 in-app-purchase unlocks all levels.)

NOTICE TO LEVEL DESIGNERS:
If you get a grey screen after loading a user level, please do the following: Open settings app, select iCloud tab, log off, log into iCloud again. After iOS7 the iCloud terms were changed, and you may have to accept those again.

UPDATE FROM DEVELOPER:
You can follow me @BramStolk on Twitter. Please consider providing feedback on the game, good or bad. I need to know what you are thinking. There is a button in the HELP screen that takes you to the feedback page in itunes. Also, there is a FAQ now at http://stolk.org/tlctc/faq.html

NOTICE TO PROFESSIONAL OPERATORS:
If you open the settings of your device, and go to 'Little Crane' tab, you can reverse the controls to mimic real-life cranes where pulling the lever is boom up, and pushing is boom down.

'The Little Crane That Could' is a game by Abraham Stolk, and it uses the OpenDE physics engine.

I honestly didn't know there was any music, so I can only assume I turned it off the first time I played and forgot it existed.

You can turn on/off the music in the menu.
And the music only plays when in the menu anyway, not when in game.

I have played most of your games and they are all great. Wondering if your working on anything new? Also is there a LCTC update coming soon?

Currently, there is nothing planned: I am waiting for a spark of inspiration.

I may draw upon some inspiration from games that I admire.
I always liked Bluebyte's settlers, and I think that the indie game BlockHeroes is absolute genius. Maybe I will make something like that. I'm also intrigued by vector CRTs like Vectrex used to have in the 1980s. I think vector art can look absolutely smashing on a retina display like iPad3/4, especially if MSAA is used. So that may end up being the art style for the next game.
