The sequel to the cult classic, The Incredible Machine, TIM2 is a challenging puzzle game in which the player must complete "Rube Goldberg" machines: needlessly complex systems for doing simple things. The goal of a level may be something like getting a basketball into a basket, but the goal must be achieved by placing hamster wheels attached to pulleys in order to release balloons, or aiming a blimp at a baseball to push it over a fan that will launch the ball at a plunger to set off an explosive to ignite fireworks. The incredibly imaginative components of the various incredible machines made the game an instant hit with puzzle fans, teachers, and parents. TIM2 adds the ability to resize parts, so that both the size and direction of the part are critical to the working of the machine. The game uses an odd 640×441 resolution, which is slightly too large to allow 256 colors, so there was no obvious reason not to use 640×480. There are over 150 levels in this game, with only 5 playable in the shareware version.
