Basically, build a machine to move a ball from one side of the level to another.

If you can get past the first level after the tutorial (called "Mind the Gap") then you are better at this than I am.

EDIT: Here's a tip: Use the zoom out feature. Sometimes there are parts of the level you can't see in the default view.

Yeah I've been at it for a few hours and have managed to beat about half the levels. I didn't realize at first that the stick things could be used as ramps.

Yeah, It took me a while to realize you could move the ball, so as to better position it. Sorry for the shortness of the earlier post, I was late for work.

I initially read this as Fantastic Contraception.

Oh well, I'll accept the link leading me towards creation as opposed to away from it.

This is pretty addictive. Here's my sample design (FantasticContraption.com)

Wow, this game is great. I sent it to a friend from college and we had a mechanical vs chemical engineer duel to see who could beat all the levels first. I lost, proving that college degrees actually do matter. I kept on getting distracted by trying to make my contraptions look like molecules.

I got up the triangles level, but got distracted, making really weird contraptions that did all sorts of wacky things.

Fun game!

I was introduced to this about 2 weeks ago. Pretty addicting.

There are some things that throw the game's physics out of whack, but are fun to watch...

Watch this one for a few minutes...

This is sadly pathetic, but it worked. I love it.

It said I need to buy the full version to see your solution. Sadness.

Yeah, I don't know how you came up with that Mission on Mars solution, rinberg. Very well done.

I didn't need to buy the full version to see cfgb's. I think I've done ones similar to that (using a wood rod as a ramp).

I know exactly what you mean. I was much more proud of my little engines that could (the ones that took forever to finish, and half the time looked like they were going to stall out) than the ones that I figured out well and took no effort once started.
