    ...which has a mechanical timer and an objective which is to move a small steel ball negotiate various obstacles (e.g. tilting bridges, tyre course, etc.) by means of sliding, pushing & hitting buttons & levers. I remember playing this nifty toy at my primary school either in 1999/2001. I think it was either a Milton Bradley/John Sands brand game.
    What was this game called? Any ideas?

        I still have that one somewhere!!! The thing that sucked is I lost the metal ball. I used to spend many afternoons playing this whenever boredom got me down.

            My older cousin has this game. It's hard to play at first.
