It's the next installment of Gears - literally.

DAMN those grafixs look great, looks like the're on another planet now fighten them locust' and this time you're not Pheonix!

Look kinda cool.

Reviews queue getting a little backlogged? I got this one on Steam ages ago. Still, a really good game, and I agree about Time Challenge. There's one in particular that no matter how quickly or perfectly I get through it, I'm always just one second off from being able to make those last couple clicks to finish it out. Time Challenge is basically for OCD freaks like me who feel the need to complete a game 100%.

Also, some of the puzzles are just plain evil. There's literally no other way to describe them.

We figured this one was under the radar enough that no one would mind if it was a little late. But then you came along. *shakes fist*

Are you implying that a device that costs more than a PS3 and is basically a phone is the best place for small, cheap bite-size-gameplay games? I think the PC is one of their natural homes, and the DS would be the other one.

My iPhone didn't cost me more than a PS3, in fact, I could have gotten it for free if I'd wanted.

Jesus so they combined the frustration of slide puzzles with rubics-cube like 3D aspects...this is the work of an evil genius. Anyway, the game actually looks really grea, nice review by the way, but i just do not (after almost murdering my PS2 and RE4) have the patience for these types of games.

This looks like one of those puzzle games that endlessly compel me to finish them, but my skills are far too caveman-esque to actually do it usually without a walkthrough. I can finish puzzle games, but it takes me a while. A grossly long while. It's kinda like scraping dog poo off the bottom of a boot--somewhat boring, but oddly contenting.

That may be interesting enough for me to get a steam account. It also looks like something my laptop will run, it hates games though.

Either I have deja-vu to such a severity that I recall that video supplement word for word, or I've seen it in its entirely on this site before!

Somebody's gotta keep you guys on your toes. ;D

I really like puzzle games but i've never been very good at the pannel sliding varaiaty.

Cogs is a fine game, I like it just for the sheer uniqueness of it

mario would be proud

Likewise. I enjoy both Pipe Dream-esque games and Incredible Machine-like games, but hate slide puzzles with a firey passion.

So... can you pick and choose? Is one style favoured over the others? Or are they pretty evenly spread out?

In my country, the cheapest iPhone on the Apple store (no subscriptions attached, you simply buy the device like you would buy a TV, this is the most common mobile business model here) costs 499€, or 703$. A PS3 usually costs 369€, or 520$. And having to pay an expensive subscription (like 50/60 €/$) to get an iPhone for free or for a cheap price doesn't sound like an optimal solution to me.

Buying an iPhone solely for gaming isn't going to be a great purchase, but the point that Jordan was making is that the game feels like something designed to be played on the move still stands. An iPhone is one place it would fit, and by the look of it, you're right about the DS as well.

Ok. I admit I have a bit of a grudge against the iPhone. :)

I now want a puzzle music box.
