Guides on emulating older games

Crazy Machines is a puzzle computer game. Many of its ideas are based on The Incredible Machine series of games. The player is given a set of mechanical components to construct a Rube Goldberg-style or Heath Robinson-style intricate machine to achieve a goal and advance to the next puzzle in the game. In the game, players build imaginative machines that turn cranks, rotate gears, pull levers, and more to build a unique contraption. The player can solve more than 200 challenging puzzles and experiment with gears, robots, explosives, and more in a virtual lab. The game uses a physics engine to simulate various in-game variables such as air pressure, electricity, gravity, and particle effects. (Wikipedia)

I spent hours with this game trying to figure out how to solve the puzzles. What a pleasure once you figure them out, especially the harder ones. I would keep coming back and back and back until I solved them (and only rarely cheated by checking up solutions on the www). I think this is also a great software to give out to kids as it greatly encourages creativity and "thinking outside the box". Great upload, thank you mrdav!
