Fantastic Contraption is a physics/puzzle game where players are asked to move a number of pink objects into a pink rectangular “goal” area. And it’s easier said than done. As far as difficulty goes, Fantastic Contraption proves to be quite a challenge. Players must build a device or “contraption” that is both mobile and capable of transporting the pink object from point A to B. The mobile contraption will optimally operate like a tank, rolling over obstacles and knocking down blockades. Players can choose from 5 different objects when building their contraption. There are 3 wheels: one that spins clockwise, one that spins counterclockwise, and one that will not rotate until pushed or moved by momentum. There are also two connectors: a solid stick and a water stick. The water stick can pass through walls and wheels, but not everything. Players have free reign when designing their contraption, so trial and error plays a major role in this game. Additionally, the paid version of Fantastic Contraption allows players to design and share levels of their own. Since the difficulty is high and learning curve somewhat steep, we recommend this game to players 7 and up.
