Cogs is a puzzle game where players build machines from sliding tiles. Players can choose from 50 levels and 3 game play modes. New puzzles are unlocked by building contraptions quickly and efficiently. Lazy 8 Studios believes that Puzzle fans aren’t getting their fair share. Every year, gaming hardware gets more and more powerful. Mid-range computers can render tens of thousands of polygons at 60 frames per second and the big studios are using all of that power to create incredibly realistic, compelling experiences.

Cogs has already been a success on the PC, but players and reviewers unanimously agree: We want this kind of sophisticated puzzle game on our iPhones. They’ll get their wish in January 2010. And, so here we go. You can download the PC demo version here.

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.
