    We're all looking to burn some time every now and again.. I was yesterday, and found this little game. You build machines out of very limited supplies in order to move a ball or block to a goal area.


    Fantastic Contraption: A fun online physics puzzle game

    It seems very cheesy at first, and the first several levels are stupid easy, but then it gets very challenging and quite fun. Enjoy!

    I uses to play that game a lot. I tried to pass the levels with the smallest contraption/least amount of parts.

    Its funny to build contraptions and then go look at other people's designs afterwards.. I engineer these over complicated war machine looking things.. And some people get it done with two three twigs and a pair of wheels.


    Quoted links don't work.. got to figure out how to properly link contraptions..

    That happened to me with one of the early levels 'Around the Bend'. I spent 30 minutes and couldn't come up with anything. Then I just started over and stuck some wheels down in (seemingly) random locations without overthinking it, linked them together, and it worked!

    Right now I'm working on 'Big Ball'

    EDIT: Oh NOW I realize you can move the goal block around! :p

    Shit repost :(

    Ah well, it's true that the speed of your machine makes the cart go faster. Lame.

    I got 82% with this vehicle. It has a lid that comes down and shuts to keep the coconuts in the vehicle.

    92% thus far. All the coconuts in 23 seconds I believe. It takes a full 3 seconds for the coconuts to tumble into it at the start, but if I widen the mouth it dumps coconuts along the way. I've noticed that weight plays a huge roll.

    i agree it should be coded better to not be reliant on your PCs speed :(
