Fun "Build a Machine" sort of game [689]

Incredible Machine, as a previous reviewer mentioned.... That's the game, from the 90s, I think, that started this whole genre of puzzle games. This is a great addition in the flash area in that genre.

The drag-and-drop gameplay for getting the "Wheel of Death" to the target block... is quite smooth and easy to learn. I like all the stats, from score and lives lost under the current level in the corner... to all the level complete stats once you're successful in each level. I originally played this the week you submitted it, a couple weeks ago, and I can't remember to which stage I got, but there had been several levels in a row with piles of cars to jump the wheel over. And some weight-triggered switches and so forth. The amount of levels where I looked at the props available and thought "no way... there's just not enough!" yet still managed to figure out a way, especially when you have to take the wheel UPWARDS for quite a ways, with just a few ramps, springs, and so forth... to spare... are great, in particular.

Great level design, great engine, well done all around!

Thanks for your thoughtful comments. I really appreciate your feedback. They come at a time when I'm about half way through building a new game using some of the Wheel of Death engine and had started to question it's value. So great timing from that perspective. Thanks again.


Reminds me of Incredible machines

NICE :) but...

Nice game,but I found bug...When you complete the lvl you can press ''S'' button and lvl will automaticly switched to next , you can push so many times you want. :(

Thanks for the review. Well spotted on the "level complete" bug. I just uploaded a new version with this bug fixed.

I have a couple of other games in development so new levels may need to wait for now.
