Construction Zone: A Physics Builder (.99)

Construction Zone

From iTunes...

Quote:
This is a classic physics based puzzle game. Build your contraptions, test, and complete a variety of challenges.

Features include:

- Shake or tip the device to affect the physics simulation.
- Captivating gameplay and beautiful graphics.
- Physics engine designed and optimized to achieve smooth and accurate experience.
- Original title developed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod Touch.


***Bought it myself, and if you are into construction games (like Moonlights) you will likely enjoy this. It's a bit less (hate to use the word but it seems appropriate) polished than Moonlights or Tiki Towers, but if you're a fan of this genre- I'd say pick it up.

Also, noticed this isn't brand-new, so if a thread was made before, sorry!

Just 25 at the moment, with scoring based on the amount of materials used on each level. To unlock further levels you have to score well on earlier levels. It is fairly lacking in levels (hoping for updates), but it's kind of fun just going back and messing around seeing how else you can beat it.

How does this compare to Fantastic Contraption?
I was pretty impressed with that when it came out AND it had a level editor.

It also had online rankings and allowed you to go online and play user made levels.

You could also go online and load other people's solutions to the puzzles into your own to see how they did it.

Not too much like Fantastic Contraption other than there being a "goal area" you have to make it to. Otherwise there are no "moving parts" like in Fantastic Contraption. You have to build a structure with the given beams/ropes/weights in order to complete each level.
