The Incredible Machine is the first part, probably the most famous series of logical games that has ever been played on PC screens. The main task of the program is to compile machines from various parts in such a way that after their commissioning, the goal set at the beginning of each stage is achieved.

Any arrangement on the board is referred to as a "machine". In order for it to work properly, it needs to be supplemented with the missing elements. The latter is quite a lot in the game, but not all of them will be available at a given stage. Usually there is only one way to solve the problem, although this is not the rule - if you have more parts at your disposal, there is usually some alternative way to overcome the board. The initial stages mainly serve to familiarise oneself with the rules governing the game and the effective use of the available elements. Later on, the experience gained through this method should be gradually used and more and more complex systems should be run. For intellectual maniacs 87 murderous boards have been prepared. If you don't think it's enough, you can use an easy-to-use editor, let your imagination run wild and do some of your own brain-solving "machines".

The Incredible Machine is an original and extremely interesting product. Its greatest advantage is its enormous intellectual load, which stimulates the spatial imagination. Besides, as for 1993, it is realized very decently - at that time, the use of high resolution, really was a rarity.
