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!

Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill?

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..
Example.. Level 19.

*SPOILER* if you don't want to see how its done, dont watch.

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

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 :(
