- Incredible machine, the -

Jeff Tunnel made some pretty good games when he was at Dynamix and apart from the three adventures he made he also created the incredible machine, a puzzle game in which you use all manner of objects to try and complete an objective. Objectives often involve getting items into certain places but as the levels progress you will have to face multiple objectives by using many different tools.

The first level starts easy and you have to get a basketball into a hoop. The level consists of a couple of conveyor-belts which can roll so that the bowlingballs on top of them can move. The items available to you are a hamster which when hit by something starts to run like crazy thus giving you a means to power the belts and you also have bowling balls with which you can hit the hamsters. When you finish placing the items you can hit the start button and see what the results are, luckily there is no penalty for failing and you can try again as often as you'd like. If you complete a level you will be given a password so the next time you play the game you can start on a later level. Things get gradually more difficult as levels procede and you will more and different items with which you can complete the level. Not all items are used all the time though so you can be creative and think up a solution. All items can be placed on the screen as long as there is space and you do not have to place them in exact postions to keep the frustration to a minimum.

The incredible machine is a perfect example of a game that doesn't require fancy graphics but relies on game mechanics to create a great game. The interface is easy to use and objects can be moved and rotated easily so as to make things move in other directions. The game is easy to pick up but hard to let go off as it keeps you glued with it's ever more difficult puzzles but not soo much that they get frustrating. This game is truly great so if you haven't played it yet I suggest you check it out now!

Overal rating: 9/10

This game was released for two different systems here are some notes:
DOS Released in 1993.
Game has been tested but not completed on a Win2k PC.
For some strange reason the game locks up on my DOS system as well as my windows 2000 machine. Most likely because of the resolution used but the game works perfectly under DOSBOX so use that if you have problems.
Others This version is not available.
3DO released in 1994.
