Classic puzzle-game series from PushButton Labs makes its way to the leading destination for DRM-free classic PC games.
Warsaw, Poland – October 1, 2009.

The games require players to solve puzzles while building wacky machines, with each level offering a set of specific parts that the player needs to use to build their crazy contraptions and achieve a specified goal. From humble beginnings – popping a balloon with a needle, for example – players will soon transfer to boggled-brain territory as they have figure out how to combine a rat in a cage, a goldfish in a bowl, two strings and a bowling ball. In addition to the given levels, wacky inventors can dive into the free play mode, in which there can let their imaginations run free.
