FreeTinker

FreeTinker is a clone of Microsoft Tinker (available as Windows Ultimate Extra for Windows Vista Ultimate users)

It is a puzzle game in which the player controls a robot through various mazes and obstacle courses. It includes 9 levels

 
 


 
 

How to play

See http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/629c52bd-257b-4d5b-a53a-c04d41262ee51033.mspx for original Microsoft Tinker help.

Differences from Microsoft Tinker

  • Lasers, mirrors and magnets don't exist
  • Unluckily I had no time to reverse-engineer Microsoft Tinker levels, so the two formats are incompatible
  • No high-quality 3D animations and sounds
  • Minimalist UI, just a menu (Restart level, Load level, Help, Exit) and the battery energy on the top-right corner of the screen
  • Some bugs
