Fantastic Contraption is an addictive puzzle game. The laws of physics apply in the game. To win the game you must get a designated piece into the designated goal area. To accomplish this you have to build contraptions. Your building blocks for your contraptions are, three distinct balls with five potential connecting points (top, right, bottom, left, middle)and two types of connectors. One ball rolls right, another rolls left, and the last does not move under its own power. The difference between the connectors is one is solid and the other allows some things to pass through it. If you get stuck or just want to see how other people beat the level, you can see what other people made available and even modify them.

The game is free, but if you want to design your own levels or play other people's levels you have to pay $10. Even without paying, you can share your designs with other people easily through a designated URL. You do need to register for a free account to save or get a URL so you can send the link to your friends.

As an example, below are a few of my designs:

This one is a Plow:

The Plow upgraded to Speed Plow:

Admittedly, both Plows are more like tunneler, but I called them Plows for the speed at which they "plow" through the junk.

This is a three level monstrosity:

This is one of my more interesting creations. I call it a magic ball. It does not look like it could possibly work, but it does:

This second magic ball does not win, but it is a bit mesmerizing before it destroys itself:

Feel free to post links to your contraptions as a comment.
