Apparatus is a game where you build simple mechanical structures to
make a path for one or several marbles to the goal. Use the laws of classical mechanics to complete each level.
"A real life-sapper. Get into Apparatus at your peril – you will lose hours of your life!" - LifeOfAndroid.com (Score: 9.5/10)
Build a space rocket, connect cables from batteries to motors, build bridges, set up teeter totters,
swing with ropes, build vehicles, or just let the marble have a happy roller coaster
ride to the goal!
Use the hammer or the wrench to connect planks, wheels and other objects together.
Use the control panel to control your creations, be it a monster truck, a mechanical rifle or anything YOU can imagine!
Creativity is essential in the gameplay Apparatus. If you don't have the patience to figure
out the challenge levels, why not just play around in the physics sandbox and build whatever
comes to mind? Upload and share your levels in the community section or download and
comment on other players' levels.
The early levels will teach you how to play the game and go through some basic concepts.
The more you progress the more freedom the levels provide, many levels can
be solved in many different ways.
Every time you complete a level, you can go into freebuild mode and modify the level
however you like. If you make the level better, or just harder, you might want to
upload it to the community section and let other people play your modified level.

Better with a pen; requires fine control. Great, challenging game. Runs flawlessly on my CM7.1 moto defy. I often have spare parts at the end of a level, though... so I'm never quite sure what the 'intended' solution was :P

Awesome sandbox. Massive improvements since last time I played it. Found a bug where after a while, moving the camera acts like your pinching to zoom.

It is a shame though that when you upgrade to the paid full version, you have to repeat most of the previous levels. Seems kinda silly to me - when you upgrade, you're hankering for a new clever level, but instead have to go back and tediously repeat the same ones again. Aside from that, this is a great game, love it!

This game allows you to be very creative and use your brain for once. Great physics and tools allow for near endless combinations of objects. Would love some sort of PC based level design tools that can export completed levels to the phone.

SUPER FUN FOR CREATIVE MINDS! This is the best game/app I have on my phone. The sandbox mode is what this game is about. Endless possibilities.

Apparatus is one of those games that grabs your attention and entraps it in a tricky, complex and fun experience. One of the better aspects of the game is that although there are no time limits the game is still kept hard through the need to take time and skill to get through each level. Patience is required; and once you beat a tough level you get that feeling of satisfaction. Overall, it's a worthwhile purchase - this, or a cup of coffee. Your choice. I'd choose the former.

Got it from Amazon for free, and happily paid for it on Android Marketplace to get updates. Great game, very much worth supporting the dev.

The best mobile game I've played. Fans of puzzle games will feel right at home. A lot of replay value. A complaint is the location of the Undo button.
