Caution!! Contraptions Construction Zone

What do you get when you cross a flap-paddled jiggly widget with a pneumomatic plug-u-lator? A Funtabulous Gadgetashery!

Welcome to The Incredible Machine: Even More Contraptions. Your first assignment is to create a new Gigamaree. Just gab a doodly-wobble and screw it to a circum-recoiled Iokionic reflecting laser using a job-ratchety-thang. Then have everybody clear the room while you throw the switch.

Step into our lab, put on your white coat. and discover the true meaning of Weird Science.

We'll provide plenty of fireworks and lots of red, white, and blue. You just have fun. Together, we'll make a holiday.



Features:

Over 250 unique and challenging "Contraptions" to solve, most with multiple solutions!

Go head-to-head with a friend in the two-player mode, and see who can solve the "Contraption" first.

Over 100 different parts to mix and match. Certain Programmable Parts allow for truly custom puzzles. Create and save your own puzzles to share with friends.

Accurate physics models create realistic interactions between parts. Change the gravity and air pressure for each "Contraption" to simulate different worlds, or outer space.

An in-depth tutorial teaches you about the parts, and how they work.

Reviews:

Computing with Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"Kids love the opportunity to build Rube Goldberg-type devices while completing puzzles within this software. They experiment with real science by using levers, motors, and the like; but they also get to stretch their imaginations by using gravity-defying balls, and baboon-powered conveyor belts. This software has just the right balance of wacky and real to let children learn as they play."
