    Inventor Mode: Starting with simple puzzles, players are introduced to the widgets that are used to build machines - gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels, props, and more.

    Move Challenge Mode: Take your time and plan ahead. Every click counts when you only get ten moves to find a solution.
