The Incredible Machine [$2.99] for iOS has been updated to include the content that spurred its recreation in the first place. The entire 1993 version of the Rube Goldberg puzzle game, including its pixilated visuals, is now accessible within the app for the price of free.
Also, more challenging puzzles have been added. A total of 15 “expert” missions are a part of this update, adding to an offering of around 75 total puzzles designed, in part, by Jeff Tunnel, the dude who created the original game.
Tunnel joined up with Playdom in 2010 after founding PushButton Labs in 2009. He was with Sierra On-Line when The Incredible Machine was originally created and published.
Remember Casey’s Contraptions [$2.99]? That’s the physics-based puzzler that we prefer in this specific genre, but it’s wild that its source material, the original The Incredible Machine, is now available within a re-make that came out a month after Casey’s Contraptions launched. I think this is a once-in-a-lifetime happenstance. We were a part of history, people! Do we get a prize or something?
