    Link: Fantastic Contraption - Kind of like `Magic Crayon` the physics game, but you don`t get to draw. Fun anyway.

    No way! I was playing this the other day!
    It`s SO much fun.
    Some levels take forever, and one I just couldn`t do so I left my little contraption going for about 15 minutes and it eventually ploughed its way through the fallen bricks.
    haha

    Not that it has anything to do with anything, but when I first read the title, I thought it said "Fantastic Contraception". Boy was I ever mistaken.

    Cool game, though.

    as for dying in the next five hours.

    "Kind of like `Magic Crayon` the physics game, but you don`t get to draw."

    So in other words, an incredible machine clone.

    Anyway, it`s a good game but I`m not paying $10 for extra levels.

    U-turn is REALLY simple.

    I got it on my very first try. I always start out with a rough prototype of my contraption to test out the level`s physics. Sadly, U-Turn`s rough prototype worked.
