Default Fantastic Contraptions

Fantastic Contraptions

So, a friend of mine linked me to this the other night and it's pretty ridiculous.

Basically you get a couple pieces that act in specific ways and put them together to make machines to get an object from point a to point b. You can make projectiles, cars, walking things (though those are hard), whatever.

Some of the later stages get a bit more... exacting, in what's possible, and I still maintain that Tube is impossible.

Figured you guys might want to try it out. I've beaten all the stages except Tube and Unpossible, lemme know if anyone solves Tube and how you did it. I still have hope for Unpossible, though.

I think it's a fantastic game. I'm not much of an engineer, though, so I mostly get through the levels with very odd contraptions. Thanks for sharing!

Argh, I'm completely stuck on the "tube" one, it's impossible!


Here's some of my favorite contraptions I've made so far though:

Walker
Rejected!

I hate engineering based games because I get an inflated sense of superiority from the first few easy levels and then it throws in a level that actually takes some skill and all I can do is stare blankly at all the tools at my disposal.

So basically, please post your successful contraptions for those of us engineering idiots (population: probably just me).

You're on the right track. Or at least I did a converyor belt too.


Krylo: I beat the tube (my roommate actually figured out the design, I copied it):

Reminds me of The Incredible Machine. Does anyone remember that game?

So far I'm enjoying this

Edit: My computer can't handle this game, apparently. It slows down ridiculously if there's like more than three rods on the screen. -_-

OOh, here's one that works: The "Better belt"
It's kinda laggy, but I love the last arm's fling-ness.
