COGNITION is a “tapformer”, a mobile game which combines the spirit of a platformer and an elegant one touch movement mechanism.

In COGNITION, you control Click and Cogsworth, two constantly rotating cogs, through a series of surreal and increasingly dangerous mazes constructed by a maniacal clockmaker.
