Description official description

The release of the Rube Goldberg machine puzzler The Incredible Machine for 3DO compiles levels from the original game and its expansion, adds new ones of its own and presents everything in its own graphical style.

Included are most (or all) of the 160 puzzles from the computer versions, along with many new ones for a total of 208 levels. Also available are 30 additional tutorial levels that teach the use of the basic machine parts. The "Make A Machine" mode allows players to construct their own machines from all available parts. These can be saved to the 3DO's internal memory for later use.
