Glitchy... Cool game concept, but on level 4 the monkey did not use the banana peel so I did not get 3 stars, and on level 5 I assembled the machine properly a nd the boot does not stomp the horns in the shoes. I double checked with YouTube examples and I had it correct. It won\'t let me past the level! Running Android on brand new Samsung S7 Edge. Help!!! ***EDIT***: fixed after phone restart. Hopefully this doesn\'t happen too often. If it stops glitching, I\'ll give it a 5.

Loved Rube Goldberg stuff since I played Mousetrap as a kid. I love overcomplicated contraptions that do a simple task. The only thing not giving this more stars is lack of added level\'s and there\'s little replay value. Please add more levels, this game has great potential.

This is a fantastic puzzle game. With that being said it can get a bit frustrating to the point you will search the solved puzzle on YouTube. That is why I won\'t give it 5 stars. It\'s a .99 game at a 2.99 price. 18 levels make for a while of puzzle time, but it\'s $2 more expensive than it\'s worth

Should be 5 stars but.... Love the game. Thank you for fixing sound and vibrate issues. New review: I redownloaded and now it\'s glitchy. Can\'t grab items easy. 10-20times I try. And I know how to solve first lvls. But they are not working now. Bummer. Was a great app. Please fix

Great Loads more levels plsss

Why the hell does this game request access to my dialer? It asks to be able to make and send calls. Why would that be needed. Also game is slow and laggy on a note 9. Also the interface is not great it didn\'t recognize a lot of touches and theres only one way to do things to my knowledge. Has potential for the future.

Love it! Big Rube fan. Great little app for my classroom Rube Goldberg curriculum project.

Wonderful! Still my goto app on my Nexus. I would, however, love to see one big feature in the future - Sandbox Mode. We build our own levels/puzzles using a host of items and objects, etc. Still a 5-Star app. Love it!

Fun game but needs to turn off vibration This is a fun game but it urgently needs a way to turn off the vibration. Can\'t use it at night without vibrating the whole house awake.
