    It's funny how we all come up with the same idea for some but do it slightly differently

    Maybe it'd be good if they had a small timer on the victory screen showing how long it took to reach victory. Then people could compete against each other for building the fastest contraption.

    I think that would really encourage innovation; you would see a lot more of the really clever catapult-like designs which win in under one second.

    It is very interesting though to browse through the hundreds of designs for each level and see that almost everyone solves it in basically the same way, with only slight variations. It probably means the level design is good - if there is only one logical way to solve it. Or perhaps great minds think alike.

    Can you tell I like this game

    Yep

    I've done level 15 (I think), the Down Under level. link

    That took some working out and trial n error.

    That's mine!

    I got stuck on this one, trying to make a truck which delivers it, but it kept failing. So I thought I'd turn it into a simpler royal mail special delivery instead: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=606558



    This one was easy concept, difficult at first to put into practice: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=579245

    Oops, looks like you posted the wrong link...

    Your solution for Awash looks the same as mine! We could be the same person.

    This game is fun. I have so far gotten to level Big Ball. I would like to see what you all have done, but every time I click on the provided links it gives me the start page. How do I view those solutions?

    I did screen shots of mine, so here is the solution for the Big Ball. I did use separate units, had one squeeze behind the big ball and then force the thing under the ball:

    Click 'Play' then 'Continue', it begins with start screen but eventually opens the design.

    I looked at the Four Ball versions. Interesting how two types of approaches have developed. I find Saul's version more elegant than mine, but we have the same sort if principle applied. Oh how much fun it is, I will continue to as high as I can go

    Nice designs Datura. You seem to like having long trains of connected wheels. I like the ones that go across gaps.

    I might show a few more of my designs (warning, spoilers)

    Unpossible: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=430424
    Mission to Mars: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=474636
    Tube: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=429968
    Handling: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=429712 (I'd like to see other people's designs for this)

    Unfortunately I didn't record the level names for some earlier ones...
    "TRR" http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=429314
    "Down Under" http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=429185 (proud of this one)
    "Bigball" http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=402108
    "Ace" http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=401335

    I have just come up with a much more efficient solution to this one. I call it "Flinger"
