New Game on GameUp: Simple Machines!

Posted by Andrew Gardner on

In Simple Machines, the newest science game featured on GameUp, there are spare robot parts all over the Museum. It’s the job of Twitch to go and collect them. It won’t be easy, and that’s the problem: our adorable-but-lazy friend likes things easier. It’s up to you and Twitch to use found objects to create simple machines, devices that will help him solve challenges with a minimum of force, collect the parts and stay out of trouble. Playing this games allows for playful explorations of inclines, planes, pulleys, force, levers, gravity and gears! Special thanks to our friends at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago for developing this great addition to GameUp!
