Fanastic Contraption: Time Waster for Nerds

Anyone else ever try this site?

http://fantasticcontraption.com/

It's painfully addicting and surprisingly challenging. I think the challenge is more because I'm stubborn and instead of just trying to beat the level, I try to accomplish the task in the coolest way possible.

Such as below. I'm sure I could accomplish the task at hand much more efficiently, but I'm determined to get my double ninja star mechanism to work.

It's cool to watch the videos of how other people beat the level after you're done as well.

A superior rider uses superior judgment to avoid situations that require superior skill.

yea, i finished the game a while back, although not in the most efficient manner. if you want a good challenge, check out their forums. They have contests per level. like solving the puzzle with the least amount of pieces. or "perfection" solves where any and all pieces of the puzzle are not allowed to fall down into the abyss. restrictions like that make the game a heck of a lot more difficult.

+1. Actually, I couldn't remember the name of that one and thought this was it, taken online.

Nothing beats Mousetrap, though.

If you have the 3D hardware to push this app, then Phun is a much bigger and better sandbox.
