    A descendent of classic PC-puzzler The Incredible Machine, almost 20 years down the line, and Crazy Machines: Elements manages to be the worse game. There is some enjoyment to be had in the unlockable challenge mode, but most of the experience lacks real creative freedom and is let down by control issues.

    If you're looking for a slick, tactile contraption puzzler, then you're far better off looking to the mobile scene for the many superior (and cheaper) offerings. By comparison, Crazy Machines Elements is a step into a murky past best forgotten.

    Crazy Machines Elements gives me a similar feeling where I just want to play with the pieces and see what can be built. But, like a parent worried their child will choke on the board game's tiny pieces, Crazy Machines Elements doesn't trust players with all of its tools from the start, preventing many from ever finding the fun lurking just beneath the surface.
