    There aren't many puzzle games that spin the gears in your mind like Cogs.

    It's too early to claim the puzzle game of 2010, but any contender will have a challenge on their hands. Cogs takes it's place side by side with Zen Bound and iBlast Moki as examples of the best of the best out there right now.

    If you buy the game and all four DLC packs, Cogs will run you $4.95 and should take around 10 hours to complete if you try to beat every challenge in the game.

    This is puzzle game perfection and one of the most stylish games I've played on any system, mobile or console. I can't wait to see what this visionary studio comes up with next.

    The beauty of this pricing structure is that I can recommend the basic game to anyone to see if they like it enough to spend more. It could be said that you're paying for a demo, but that would be unfairly cynical on what is a rather outstanding game to begin with.

    Cogs is a finely tuned puzzle experience that does well in getting the gears in your head moving.

    Cogs is a magnificent iPhone puzzler. It is immediately comprehensible with no new mechanics to master; if you know how gears work, you know how to assemble a machine in Cogs. The art style is wonderful.

    If you can get past the game's "buy as you go" set-up and increasing difficulty, you'll find tons of value in Cogs. The presentation is top-notch and the gameplay will grind your gears, and we mean that in a good way.

    If I had to sum up the game, I'd class it as a good fun-filled time passer, my only little caveat being that because of the true repetitive nature of the puzzles within Cogs, the game didn't seem to have as much replay value as I probably was expecting from it, or would have liked it to of had.

    A fantastic looking, engaging puzzle game that is only let down by the pay for more levels feature. Hardcore puzzle fans will love it.
