Flash game : Fantastic contraption
« on: July 23, 2008, 11:31:51 AM »
A great physics game : given basic elements (wheels, motors, sticks etc), you have to build a machine that will take an object to a goal. Sounds easy ? It's not ! Sounds boring ? It's NOT !

If you enjoyed Phun, you should love this game.

Heythat using a bridge technique was really neat. I was just building brute-force, 'loads of wheels' vehicles, your solution is much more elegant, here's it tweaked just for fun (not really any better :) )

I played it a bit a couple of days ago, it's quite hilarious when you find weird and unexpected ways to complete a level. Like this one http://FantasticCont....com/?designId=60061

Edit: Apparently this thing is pretty random, it DID complete the level when I made it

Here's my solution to Mission to Mars: http://FantasticCont....com/?designId=66551
(VideoInPicture: you posted a solution to mission to mars, not four balls)

Has anyone passed level 15:down under?

[edit] incredible, I passed it! http://FantasticCont....com/?designId=66673 :) [/edit]

Heres how I did the "Big Ball" level... :)

http://FantasticCont....com/?designId=68558

and after playing some more of the "Big Ball" level...

http://fantasticcont....com/?designId=68974

After victory hit the back button in the game and watch and the big ball that tries to block you will fall off too. I did two that would fall off like that.

That is the fastest of the 2. The slow one is http://fantasticcont....com/?designId=68916

:) thanks, but I was just lucky :P
Now.. watch this: http://FantasticCont....com/?designId=64604
I think this is the best solution for 19 I've seen so far (and I've seen quite a few pages! :P). This one is just perfect in its simplicity, I think it can't possibly get simpler than this :)
