Fantastic Contraption

Cool physics puzzle game

https://fantasticcontraption.com/
Dunno if anyone's played this, but it's a cool game where you assemble a contraption, and it goes through the physics engine to achieve a goal. Some of the later puzzles get quite hard.

Yeah, cool... I had a play with that about a week ago. Very educational too .

Not exactly the most efficient...

Great concept... But I am truly awful.

That was pretty fun. The Over The Hill level had me stumped for a while, but I set up a train-style contraption that got it over. Couldn't figure out the 'mission to mars' or whatever its called.

U-bend was my favourite. First time I built a train with ~20 rollers, then I refined and shrunk it down to four.

I only had a look at the contraptions other people made last night, they were way cool. Instead of everyone building vehicles, there were a few that literally launched the score token over all the obstacles. On one level that had a bunch of blocks in the way, they built a bull-dozer and just pushed them all away, when I was trying my best to climb over them all. One guy even built a bridge to let their vehicle easily walk over the blocks. Quite a lot of ideas were there to try.

You can have a look at the user-made contraptions after you beat each level, its under the level's title on the level select board.

By the way, how do you do that spoiler hiding thing on this forum??

Or, you know, just three sticks and no rollers.

|edit| Even better! |edit|
Seeing as we are being minimalist; how about one stick only?

My 4 legged walker(it would walk better if you could overlap brown rods :/.

To overlap rods, use water rods instead of wooden ones.

I meant the wooden rods since I need colliding rods for that 4 legged contraption. It would be good to be able to set certain wooden ones to ignore each other. Then I could have;

back left leg + back right leg -> space -> front left leg + front right leg.

Instead of;

back leg -> second from back leg -> space -> second from front leg -> front leg.

Messing around with it was fun. My first creation that I'm proud of is:

And I love my second one.

This one's cool. (by me)
