Summary: I bought this for my daughter to help her work on her problem solving skills. It was just what she needed. It's the closest thing I could find to "The Incredible Machine". I swear that she is better at understanding cause and effect type problems because of this game.
Summary: I absolutely have loved any game that follows this pattern. The Incredible Machine (and Even More!) were absolutely wonderful games back in the day. I bought this thinking it was along the same lines. I found the gameplay to be great.
Mechanical puzzle game for Nintendo DS - Mechanic Master
17 July 2009
Excerpt: This review is for Nintendo DS game, Mechanic Master, developed and published by Midway Games. Mechanic Master is a puzzle game with over one hundred levels to work through, with many similarities in principle to the 1990s PC game, The Incredible Machine.
Pros: Good concept, fun to play through the levels
Cons: Poor graphics and sound, not enough levels .
Summary: the idea of this game is very simple; you're given a number of parts (which can move in different ways) and you have to use them to get a ball from A to B around different obstacles. it starts easily enough, drawing you into the game, but quickly gets more difficult as the levels progress.
