The Incredible Machine was just an example. I wasn't really trying to ask any one to create an emulator, just if you knew of an Android game like this. Games like TIM exist for iPhone, Enigmo and Crazy Machines. I wish these would make it over to Android.
its not exactly the same but similar in, well, physics. instead of getting certain amounts of predetermined items at your disposal to create a rube goldbergesque contraption for getting an object from point A to point B, you basically create the objects by literally drawing them on the screen. balls, blocks, vehicles, pendulums, whatever. there's a lite version with 10 levels to help you get the hang of it but i got addicted right away and bought the regular one.
I too have been hunting for these kinds of physics puzzle games. I found a few worthwhile options but nothing quite on par with The Incredible Machine series. Someday hopefully. Though I could imagine the ultimate game of a rendered 3D contraption puzzle that incorporated the gyro sensors and multitouch interaction. ::dreamy eyed::
Oh man, I used to work for the cell phone provider Helio ("don't call it a phone"...lol) and we had The Incredible Machine on the game market. I played that game way more than I talked to passing customers.
