Solve puzzles with ridiculous Rube Goldberg machines using lasers, crocodiles, flying saucers, zombies, and more. In each level, you are given an objective (like, blow up the pumpkin), a partially completed contraption, and a set of parts to add to the contraption to complete the objective.
There are 160 official puzzles and thousands of user-created puzzles available via the Steam Workshop that you can play single-player or co-op multiplayer with your friends.
Contraption Maker is a fun and goofy puzzle game. The puzzles haven’t been terribly challenging, but I haven’t gotten to the hard difficulty puzzles yet (or any user-created puzzles). I’m not a fan of the cartoony and childish look of the game, but I get that it’s meant to appeal to kids as well as adults.
At $1.49 for two copies of the game, Contraption Maker is a steal. It includes Steam Trading Cards, so you’ll even recoup some of the cost. It’s a good game and I recommend it (especially at the current sale price), but it’s not one of my favorites.
