Description official description

In Return of the Incredible Machine: Contraptions, gameplay is virtually identical to the previous games in the series. Players must use a variety of mechanical components (almost exactly the set from The Incredible Machine 3) to create a Rube Goldberg like device that accomplishes a specific goal (such as popping a balloon). There are about 250 puzzles to solve along with a free form invention construction mode and a two player head to head mode.
