The Incredible Machine 3.0
In The Incredible Machine 3.0’s (Sierra On-line) many Rube Goldberg-type puzzles will either a) keep you at your computer for hours or, b), frustrate you to the point of tearing your hair out or, c), all of the above. You won’t need any help understanding how to use this program, but there are various Help functions to keep kids from getting frustrated or giving up too quickly. The Incredible Machine 3.0 is one of the few puzzle games on the PC that stand out from all the others (you know, all those dull rehashes of Tetris that pop up everywhere). If you’re looking for a good brain game, this is it.
