Geared experienced great success on the iPhone, and now it has made its way to the Android Market. The fundamental difference between the two versions is that the Android version is ad-supported, while the iPhone version costs money.

Your job is to power the blue gears by connecting them to the yellow one with a series of gears provided to you at the beginning of each level. The concept seems extremely simple, and at first glance, it might seem like Geared is incapable of providing a real challenge, but with the addition of no-drop zones, and multiple blue gears that need power, Geared becomes extremely challenging very quickly.
