Fantastic Contraption is a free online flash game based on physics. Your goal is to get your pink wheel to the pink area by creating fantastic contraptions – wheels, connections between them and the other things which, while acting according to physics law, should drive your pink wheel towards your goal.
Fantastic Contraption is different from the other physics based games in its great design and presentation. While everything is simple, it’s all thought-out at the same time. Introduction guides you through the basics of the game in a great manner, so that you grab the concept of the Fantastic Contraption game very quickly. This flash game has great physics engine and enjoyable design – unlike some other similar games, which are either buggy or ugly-looking.
To build your machines out of the parts, you have the following tools in the game: build wheels (either spinning wheels, or the static wheel, which won’t spin unless you push it), water rods are used to connect the wheels, wood rods will bump into wheels and rods they aren’t attached to; move and delete tools are used to modify your design. You even have a share tool, which lets you save your machine to a special code to share with friends!
The machine building process is quite simple and straightforward – you choose and place the wheels, the connections between them, and start the action. You can revise your design any time by deleting or moving the parts. The main challenge is to figure out what kind of machine can reach the level’s goal. You can build as simple machines as possible to win the level, or you can let you imagination run wild and build crazy big machines which reach the goal in the most twisted way possible! That’s the beauty of the game, as it lets you explore different possibilities and be as creative as you wish.
The first levels are simple to hook you up on the game. In the later levels the game gets progressively more challenging and even more interesting. If you like to create real-life machines in an easy and entertaining way, then by all means, try this game – it’s online, it’s free and it’s great!
