Crazy Machines is a puzzle computer game created by German studio FAKT Software GmbH. Crazy Machines based many of its ideas on The Incredible Machine series of games.[1] The player is given a set of mechanical components to construct a Rube Goldberg-style or Heath Robinson-style intricate machine to solve a goal and advance to the next puzzle in the game.

An iOS version of the game was released in 2009.[2]


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.
