Steampunk Idle Spinner: mobile game where you build an incredible contraption


Steampunk Idle Spinner is a mobile Android game where you can build your steampunk machine with cogwheels, engines, transmission and other gear. The game has now gremlins, balloons and portals!

Current version: 1.0

How to play:

  1. Spin the cogwheels with your finger.
  2. After every 10 rotations the connected coin machine will produce a coin
  3. As soon as you get enough money, you can purchase additional elements (by dragging the icon to the highlighted spots on the screen)
  4. These elements are: - cogwheels (increase speed ratio)
  • engines (will spin the attached cogwheels even when the game is inactive)
  • engine upgrades
  • balloon pumps (will produce balloons which will bring you coins)
  • balloon pump upgrades (will make the pumps produce more profitable balloons)
  • balloon speed upgrades (will make the balloons bring money faster)
  • hammers (hit the cogwheels and make them rotate
  • hammer upgrades
  • money machine upgrades (higher value coins produced from a machine)
  • money storage upgrades (the stored money will produce interest)
  • portal (will produce narrativium, needed to boost the production after the game restart)
  • portal power element (receives the rotational power and converts it into the portal's narrativium generation)
  • portal power element upgrade
  1. You can also sell engines, hammers and cogwheels by dragging a "recycle" button to them (from the bottom-left screen corner). You'll receive full refund minus the "recycle" ability cost (first it's 100 and grows very slowly). Also the item's price in the shop will be reduced (but not fully to the previous level, so, plan your machine building carefully)
  2. As soon as you restart (by tapping the portal or from the menu button), you'll see the narrativium machine next to your money storage (if you earned more than 0 narrativium on the previous run). It can be used for:
  • get money
  • increase time flow speed
  • discount the items in the shop
  1. There are also two secret ways to earn more coins and other bonuses, I wonder, who will be the first to find them :)

I'm tracking the time needed to build this game. For now I've spent more than 80 hours of pure coding. I'd be happy to receive your comments and suggestions.

    5. I assure you there will be no "premium only" items. My big concept is to let the players travel from one steampunk world to another for Narrativium they earn in the previous worlds. Right now there is only one world: "Workshop", but I'm going to add such settings based on "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", "From the Earth to the Moon", "Journey to the Center of the Earth",also something like Sky Pirates etc.

    6. You should be able to upgrade stuff like wood is the. Current level than stone than iron, steel,etc so the higher level cogs spin easier and other such boosts

    3. Many players ask for this feature, I'll think thoroughly how to accomplish it

    1. They seem completely useless.

    2. Actually I payed close attention. They make money machine bar 2x faster while green is filled. It requires money machine upgrade to see bar.

    3. Indeed! They provide power boost for the money machine

  5. Is there a limit to the upgrade of engine and hammer? If there is make it impossible to upgrade when its maxed

    1. Another question is does narrativium give any passive bonus?

      Delete
    2. They cap the major boost from 4th upgrade at the 3rd ugprade for both it seems. Otherwise they don't have an upgrade cap.

      Delete
    3. There is no limit for the upgrades: the engine visual is changed every 4 upgrades, but the engine speed is still increasing.

      After you restart, if you have narrativium, the narrativium machine appears which can give you bonuses or just work as an additional engine (the passive bonus)
