Steam Gears is a beautifully rendered, Steam Punk style strategy puzzle, created for iPhone and iPad users. Steam Gears gives the user 50 demanding levels where every move has a consequence. As the player completes each task within the level, gears and other mechanisms combine to become working machines. The player is challenged to complete each puzzle in the least number of moves, to both beat the set score, as well as their own previous score.  Steam Gears is composed of tiles on a grid. Each tile represents one piece of a four piece machine. In each level there are four machines that must be completed to finish the level. The player slides each piece through a maze of other tiles to eventually place the tile in the correct position on the board. The game play is similar to a fifteen-puzzle but is definitely more fun to play due to the variation in difficulty and placement of tiles on the board.
    The game begins with a jabberwocky of poetic verse then moves on to a few simple instructions and finaly begins the puzzle portion with a short story of what the machine represents.

' Twas axle rig, and the gunny doves
Did wire and goggle in the lave;
All smokey were the airflow groves,
And the chrome wrath flout and wave.'
The sky conurbation is in peril of falling into the darness below the clouds. The “Eureka Machine” is in need of repair. Unfortunately, our steamgeneer was lost in an airship attack. You must figure out how to reassemble the parts and restore the populous to its heights above the clouds.
