The Incredible Machine 2 is an excellent game from Sierra – and is my favorite puzzle game. Actually, I never get tired of it, because you can always do something new - or try to solve that damn puzzle which has been bothering you for years. In the game you will be able to make your own puzzle or try to solve one of the 130 challenges. Anyway, you won't get bored that easy. You can play head-to-head (against Professor Tim’s cat) or learn to make your puzzles.
For material you can use normal things like walls, balls, scissors, etc., and there are many strange objects, too, like super balls, lava lamps, flashlights or the monkey which starts running when she sees bananas. The other thing is that you can decorate your puzzle by adding wallpapers, planets, stars, flowers, etc. These will not effect your creation. The other funny thing is programming some of the objects. For example, what will be the letter that appears on the screen of the PC or what will be the color of the laser-activated plug.
It's a good idea to start with some challenges first, if you never played the game. There are 4 difficulty levels. The first one is easy, but then the puzzles get harder to solve. Maybe the coolest thing is that you can skip and choose the puzzle you want to play. For example, you don't have to finish the Easy section but can skip to a puzzle from the Medium Section.
But there is one inconvenience and that is you can't see all the things you can use (especially when you're making your own puzzle), so you must switch pages with objects. But it isn’t that bad. The graphics of this game are good, although they aren't revolutionary or a BS. But the sound is just awesome!!! You can change your song to whenever you want (I think there are 20 songs), and the objects have EFX, too. There is something like multiplayer; actually, this is the head-to-head where the first player is red and the second is blue.
This is just a wonderful game that deserves a 5.
