List of Physics Games » Fun-Motion

A physics game is one in which the player has to setup a set of machines and items so as to be able to achieve an objective. The first game that I ever played in this genre was The Incredible Machines (TIM) and The Incredible Machines 2 has been one of my favorite physics game.

Today I found a website that not only lists physics based games - but also has reviews and interviews as well as a Top Ten List. List of Physics Games » Fun-Motion

 

Also, I found this link from where you can download "The Incredible Machine" game series. (TIM2 is the best in the series in my opinion).

(I haven't tried the above downloads and not sure about their compatibility on Vista. If you do - leave me a comment. Also make sure that you scan for viruses).

 TIM1  Time2

As these were DOS based machines, you can use DOS-Box to play them under. (http://www.abandonia.com/en/node/23027, http://www.dosbox.com/)

Physics Games can be categorized as Rube Goldberg machines.
