Friday Game

There was this amazing game back in the 90s called The Incredible Machine. You had a bunch of pieces with which to build a Rube Goldberg device and solve a series of puzzles.

I've found a game that uses similar concepts. It has a smaller, simpler toolbox, and adds realistic physics. Like most games, it starts out simple and quickly gets harder. As of this writing, I've pretty much given up getting past level 18.

One of the best features it has is, once you've solved a puzzle, you can see how (hundreds!) of other players solved it. I was amazed at how creative and ingenious some of these solutions were.

How well can you construct a Fantastic Contraption?
