The story follows two young friends, a boy and a girl, who find a rusted old robot in an ancient forest, which they repair and befriend. All is well for a time, but they soon discover more robots, which the boy sets himself to repairing, at the cost of his true friendship with the girl.
Gameplay consists of trying to get all the hearts in a level the correct way up. You do this by rotating them around central cogs. Because they interlock you can transfer hearts from one cog to another, and each level gets progressively harder, often requiring complex sequences of moves. In each level, you are also shown the minimum moves required, which you can aim for for an extra challenge.
It's a unique game, that blends challenging rotational puzzles with an engaging and philosophical story, and creates a unique, rewarding and novel way to play.
- Rated All Ages on Amazon
- Rated 9+ on the Apple App Store for Infrequent/Mild Horror/Fear Themes.
The iOS version is £2.49/$2.99, as was the Android edition, which was removed from the play store in 2020.
As all of the in-game happenings are the results of your actions, there is no time dependence on any actions. While there is a number of moves displayed, this is not the maximum number of moves you have, but instead is the minimum number required to beat the level. You can undo as many goes as you want.
