    dkirschner's Cogs (PC)

    [January 11, 2013 01:17:18 AM]
    I got Cogs for free in a bundle (which is becoming an increasing problem). I didnít want it, but I feel compelled to try all the games I own just because I own them. Iíve done a handful of levels so far, and itís just a 3D cog-themed version of the ďyou have one space and a ton of Things and you need to move Them all around to get this one Thing from here to there.Ē All that condenses to "3-D sliding block puzzle." This game adds a couple neat rewards to the end instead of just a complete picture like many sliding block puzzles. Actually it integrates the end goal into the puzzle mechanics. Since the Things are cogs and pipes and other machinery, when you complete the puzzle, maybe a hot air balloon fills up and the puzzle flies away or a bell rings or you move pipes to direct steam to an engine that powers to life. I mean, itís not that exciting, but itís better than ďcongratulations, you beat the level,Ē because itís like youíre working to rearrange the cogs in order to float the puzzle away. Cogs has bronze, silver and gold ratings for each level on time and number of moves. So this one is even worse than Toki Tori in making you memorize things. Figured out the puzzle? Great, do it faster! Do it in less moves! Do it even faster! You get more points per medal, and you need points to unlock later levels, so I fear that I will eventually have to start going back and replaying levels to grind for better medals. That sounds boring. But honestly, Iím stuck on a plane now and have derived brief enjoyment from it. Iíve since become bored and frustrated at it again. I think my frustration stems from that mobile game, Unblock Me. It was like 1000 levels of moving the red block to the exit. Did I ruin this whole genre of puzzle games forever?

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    3D take on sliding blocks. Sliding blocks are not my thing. I started about 4 puzzle games at the same time, and this is my least favorite. Thus, byebye Cogs.
