Default Cosmic Mechanic

Hello,

I'm gimblll (http://twitter.com/gimblll) and I just finished a game called Cosmic Mechanic and it's now available globally on App Store.

Cosmic Mechanic is a building game for iPad (works on iPad1 too), where you must build various vehicles and gadgets to traverse the different levels. It has 4 gameplay modes, and a total of about 50 levels.

If anyone has any questions or anything, I'd be happy to answer them here.

Thanks!

I was lucky enough to beta test this game and must say it is a great game. Much more freedom to build than bad piggies. It really reminds me of fantastic contraption.

I'm sorry it's not, at least yet. The reason is that Apple handles taxes differently in certain countries than others and I don't currently have the resources to find out how I should do things there. (I'm just one person, I don't have a company or anything.)

This looks really clever and well thought out, and dare I say, quite a lot of fun. Looking forward to impressions.

Anyone tried it? It would be nice to hear some feedback.

I made a new video where I played it 15 minutes from the start. (contains spoilers to the puzzles!)

It's impossible not to compare with Bad Piggies. I've played the free version of Bad Piggies and found it too childish and silly. On the other hand I'm enjoying Cosmic Mechanic very much! It has more inteligent puzzles, envolves physics in a better way. It's not only a matter of designing it right, it's a mater of control it and get over the obstacles as well. There is something of Hill Climb Racing.

There are things that need some improvements, for example the music that repeat too much, but it's for sure a highly enjoyable game. I recommend it!

I'm really enjoying this. Maybe even more so than bad piggies as this feels like a cross between bad piggies and fantastic contraption.
You get your parts to build what ever you like with the aim being on a normal stage to get your astronaut to the finish zone, but there's also bonus stages that are time trials and long jump events.
After building your "thing" you can map the movement to 8 different buttons meaning that you can use one button to control all the moving parts or you can have different buttons to move/activate separate parts.
It looks like there's quite a few levels to play through and so far I'm having more fun with this than I did with bad piggies or fantastic contraption as here you have total control over your vehicle.
I'm at the stage now where I can use wheels if I like but instead I'm going for fancy walking leg style vehicles.
The graphics are nice enough and it looks nice on my ipad4.
the physics are spot on exactly what yours expect if you've played any of these contraption building games, things bounce and can break and everything works how it should.
Well worth picking up if you like this type of game.
