Like the incredible machine series games, but with the Rube Goldberg twist. It isnt as complicated or long as those games but still okay.

Bought it on sale for less than $2 and it was about 2 hours of entertainment, so I would say 5/10.

Did science ever fail or bore you? Well this game might change your mind because for starters it is made by one of the former employees of LucasArts (Technically in the 80s & 90s) named David Fox a.k.a employee #3, David's influence for making this awesome game was Rube Goldberg's granddaughter Jennifer George, The puzzles feel original & fresh, The price is right & it is very educational to young or old so overall I highly suggest getting this game even though it only has 18 puzzles but keep your fingers crossed for the steam workshop so we can all make cool contraptions just like Rube did. (If you want more info about the godfather of contraptions then go to this website for history lessons)

This game is the real deal. In this tablet port, you get to recreate 18 cartoons by the master of convoluted contraptions himself, Rube Goldberg. (Though the Brits among us will be waiting for a Heath Robinson sequel.)

On the surface, this looks like yet another "incredible machine", but here the gameplay is less about sandbox-style experimentation and more about "how on earth are these parts supposed to fit together". Slice a turkey, and all you have is a rooster, a penguin, a sand dispenser, a see-saw, a chicken salad, a bucket, a fan, and some string. Yes, that makes sense. Eventually. And not only is it immensely satisfying to figure out, it also makes me smile.

Such is the effect of the inspired work of Mr. Goldberg himself, some of whose contraptions are by now over 80 years old. The game pays homage to him in the best way possible: by bringing some of his best creations to life, and by letting us puzzle over them (ample hints provided if you need them).

Thought this might be a little to easy as far as puzzles were concerned but all were fairly challenging. For the price this is a nice pickup and easy to recommend. Artwork is well done, aesthetics are very nice. Great casual game with some challenging mind benders for puzzles. Easy thumbs up. A lot of bang for you buck and high on entrainment values.

A take on the contraption making genre which is simultaneously both classic and new. Where games like The Incredible Machine have a more open approach to designing any solution that works for a given problem, there is always a single correct solution to a puzzle in Rube Works: The one with the most complex steps. Incidentally, these are also the funniest solutions.

That's not to say that those are the only solutions worth finding, and I've been having a lot of fun finding the different shortcuts to the puzzles after completing the game. So even though there are only 18 levels, there is some replay value and I feel like the game is well worth its price. Hopefully it might also get a level editor and Steam Workshop integration in the future, as I'd love to solve more puzzles of this kind.
