Ok, guys, here it is:

I remember very little, just that it was one of the most bizarre games I have ever experienced. It was very simple, basically you had to piece together several components, perhaps a bike's wheel, a staircase, a piece of string, an old turntable, it was not a fixed list of objects, the list changed every time, and it became more complex to piece these things together as the game progressed. Eventually you had to press an "on" switch to try and make the machine "work", maybe the concept of work was including to put a ball in a basket using your silly machine. If the machine could work, you could proceed to the next level, where more odd things had to be put together, etc. etc.Sleeping

Anyone remembers a game like that?

Thanks in advance
Joe

I know exactly what you are talking about.. at least I think. Did it have a mouse and a cat too. I vaguely remember something like that. It came with my buddies Win95 comp in '96. Unfortunetly I do not remember what it was called either. I shoudl call him and ask, his parents prob have the same comp, LOL.
