Cogs is an innovative puzzle game where players build an incredible variety of machines from sliding tiles. Immersed in a steampunk world with stunning visual design, Cogs is pure eye candy. Players can choose from 50 levels and 3 gameplay modes. New puzzles are unlocked by building contraptions quickly and efficiently. - Inventor Mode: Starting with simple puzzles, players are introduced to the widgets that are used to build machines — gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels, props, and more. - Time Challenge Mode: If you finish a puzzle in Inventor Mode, it will be unlocked here. This time, it will take fewer moves to reach a solution, but you only have 30 seconds to find it. - Move Challenge Mode: Take your time and plan ahead. Every click counts when you only get ten moves to find a solution.

I've definitely passed through a solid phase of addiction to Cogs, but I've never really thought about the underlying principles that make the game so fun.

Be on the look out for another design tour soon!

Don't forget to pick up your copy of the Humble Indie Bundle #3 if you have not already.

"I've definitely passed through a solid phase of addiction to Cogs, but I've never really thought about the underlying principles that make the game so fun."

A game developer that doesn't think about the things that make a game fun? I thought that came with being a game developer :P I know that I think about the things that make a game fun (or boring) every time I play a game.

I'll try this game soon, I've already downloaded all the HIB3 games but I have yet to play them.
