Summary: It made me think and it excels in inventing a rich variety on a simple formula. Worth it for the graphics alone, the designers did a wonderful job. I have no idea how to further improve on the genre. Only the gameplay's root in one singly type of puzzle keeps Cogs from a ten in my book. But one could choose to see its focus as a strength.
Summary: I had no idea that Cogs, a somewhat random pick up I obtained in the Humble Bundle, would entrap me the way it did. I don't exactly know how to review this title, after all it really is just a sliding puzzle game. All I can tell you is give it a chance, the game is beautifully executed.
Summary: Great litle puzzle game which combines simple ideas into something quite innovative and ingenious. It takes the age old sliding blocks puzzle and adds a few ideas of it's own to create a fun, addictive puzzler. It starts off easy but becomes something that will make your head hurt! Not the sort of thing you will play for hours on end, but is just right for a quick go...or two. It's cheap price means you can't really go wrong.
Summary: Your mileage may vary. Do you like sliding block puzzles? The one where there's a grid of numbers placed out of order with one free space, and you have to get them in order by sliding them around one a time? Then you'll like Cogs. Do you hate sliding block puzzles? Then you'll probably tolerate Cogs for a bit before uninstalling it. I personally fall into the latter camp.
Summary: A very challenging game which is more than worth it for the small price tag. Extra time and move challenges give a lot of replayability and the different tile types mean that there is enough variety to keep you engaged for a long time.
Summary: Wow, lovely puzzle game! .. And believe me, normally i hate puzzles ! Cogs is a perfect game for a 15 minute session.. just to exercise your brain;) Levels are well designed, smart and pleasure to watch. Specially when you finish the task and see the outcome - e.g steam moves a little toy helicopter ;) There's plenty of levels and special challenge mode, so you would not be bored.
Summary: Cogs is an excellent, though at times extremely infuriating puzzle game that takes old-fashioned tile sliding puzzles to a new, 3-dimensional extreme. It has enough levels to keep you going for a long time, and the feeling of accomplishment you get from solving a particularly difficult puzzle is pretty good.
Summary: Nice little puzzle game, with pretty graphics and sound. There is alot of levels to solve, but they all play the same, just scrambled blocks you have to put in order all the time. Its ok, but i expected something more original and innovative.
Summary: If you like puzzle games, you will probably love Cogs. It's a mixture of classic sliding puzzle mechanics and spacial awareness... all tied up in a nice steampunk package. Puzzles are generally accomplished by normal sliding block mechanics.. trading pieces around to put the correct ones in the correct space. The real trick comes as you progress through the levels... the puzzles become 3D... rotated around a cube, or placed back to back...
Summary: I guess this must be heaven for anyone who's into sliding puzzles. Cogs delivers them in great number and variety. The presentation is very well done, the controls are smooth and if you have the patience for this kind of puzzles, you can spend many hours on it. For the less patient who are rather into puzzles that require less planning ahead this might quickly turn into a tedious shuffling around of pieces.
