The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade graphic adventure had sonmething
liek this... it was a logic game with 3 6 side objects of which coudl
rotate pairs at a time. it would randomly set the star tstate and you had
to get it to a known end state.

The problem with this is that, while the exact moves aren't wroite
learnable, there ARE a set of techniquers, kind of liek a rubrik's cube
9another good example).  Once you knwo the etchniques it is quickly
solveable from ANY position... so its only a "random puzzle" ina very
primative sense.  

Ultimately anything that takes logic, once you figure otu the logic of the
puzzle, that 90% of it.
