Best moves in Cogs levels
Time is relatively boring - it's easy enough to get a fast time by plotting out the moves in advance. But moves - now that's something that I reckon is difficult to whittle down once you reach a certain point. So I'm going to throw out the challenge - anybody want to try to get the best number of moves for all the levels?

In no particular order, I've managed:

Gears - 9.
Dimensions - 20.
Pipes - 31.
One Chime - 11.
Jack-in-the-Box - 38.
Simulchime - 17.
One Balloon - 30.
Trike - 32.
Two Sided - 33.
Silence - 24.
Synchro - 16.
Wiggle - 29.
Leaks - 41.
Color Match - 23
Color Mix - 34
Pipes and Gears - 34
Spinner - 51
Moving Targets - 22
Leaks II - 36
Siege Engine - 48
Gear Layers - 24
Pipe Box - 33
Triple Prop - 37
Rocketship - 99
Steam Crossing - 34
Metagear Shuffle - 44
Radiator - 53
Two Gears - 48
Music Box - 26
Stop - 30
Hidden Pipes - 36
Podcopter - 48
Chime Pyramid - 25
Hovercube - 55
Helios - 40
Hoverpod - 54
Flywheel - 49
Four Gears - 32
Sliding Scale - 60
Gear Shuffle - 46
Moving Targets II - 31
Plumber - 36
Woven Pipes - 41
Churn - 23
Pipe Shuffle - 47
Rocketship II - 100
Simulchime II - 54
Spinwheel - 38
Leaks Deluxe - 50
Dual Hoverpod - 88
End Credits - 157

I will say that some of these I've worked on, some of them I haven't - so some of them may be easy to beat, but others will be a lot harder. (Rocketship, Rocketship II, and End Credits in particular, I reckon are pretty close to the wire of what's possible.)

Mind you, I haven't noted down _how_ I got those moves down, so I can't reproduce some of those results. They are all legit, though - I promise.

Great game ... where're the expansion packs? ;)

Must admit that this is not something I've been meant to, I've settled for gold until now ;)
So far all my moves are equal to or worse than your best, except for pipes where im down on 25 (note I only got 8 stars atm)

Some scores (later levels) I probably did at least complete, but I lost my save file so had to start over when i reformatted my PC.

This is also why I have gotten 100% of the Achievements too while some later levels i didn't complete.

On some later levels, i just tried to finish it, didn't worry about time or moves.
Some levels i did go back and complete it faster for gold in both time and moves, but didn't improve the scores.


Earlier levels I did replay them ALOT more to improve times.
This is why i have lower moves for them and not other levels.

knew triple prop was beatable and I never bothered attempting to optimize end credits so there's 3 I need to work on I see. Only glanced above tho if I missed any. (won't bother with trying to do that on the portals b/c lol @ that)

wheatrich Jun 3, 2015 @ 2:20pm 
updating my list above
Two Sided 19
Pipes and Gears 20
Spinner 32
Leaks II 27
Siege Engine 38
Triple Prop 35
Steam Crossing 22
Radiator 35
Music Box 21
Flywheel 38
Woven Pipes 21
Simulchime II 19
some obtained on youtube, some I did on accident, some I tried for, a few were solved via puzzle solver (tho they crash if it's over like 20 moves). Most should be pretty good now. End Credits looks like only the first part could be improvable but I don't want to try. May or may not try on remaining levels idk yet esp that last portal one.
wheatrich Jun 3, 2015 @ 2:26pm 
31 on spinner... still not maxed probably but w/e
wheatrich Jun 3, 2015 @ 3:14pm 
apparently I have 12 on simulchime wonder how that happened
