IncrediBots is obviously influenced by The Incredible Machine, but equally, is an attempt to create a digital version of a construction set toy -- a set of tools that allow users to create a wide variety of objects in a freeform (or as we say in digital games, sandbox) way.

Fantastic Contraption is a level-based physics puzzler reminiscent of, but far simpler, than the legendary Incredible Machine. In each level, you have to get your pink circle from its starting position into the pink "goal" area. Everything you build has to start within the blue "construction" area.
There are only five construction objects, but these suffice to create a surprising variety of devices using basic mechanical principles: wheels that rotate left, wheels that rotate right, wheels that are unpowered, rigid struts that cannot pass through other objects, and rigid struts ("water sticks") that can.
