The back of the Mechanics Master box is kinda worrying, it describes the default mode as "pushing, shooting and painting your way" while it has a paint mode listed that's described as "paint your own contraptions". Sounds like the default mode isn't so much like TIM...

Also makes me wonder which is better, Crazy Machines or Mechanics Master...
