You Are Games:
This week's You Are Games challenge leverages the awesome and unique opportunity being offered by Inexile Entertainment with its new Prius-branded version of a fan favorite here at JIG!
Fans of physics puzzles and fuel efficiency, your time has come at last! Fantastic Contraption is back with Fantastic Contraption Prius Edition, sporting a new look, new levels, and a chance to win $1,000!
For those of you who don't remember, the original Fantastic Contraption was all about using limited building tools to create a device that would move your object from point A to point B. Fantastic Contraption Prius Edition keeps the same basic premise but with a few new features. Along with the environmentally friendly theme, you now have an efficiency meter which slowly runs out as you add parts and move your device. How can you keep it charged? With solar panels, of course! Solar panels are placed like rods and connect wheels to each other. Your contraption needs a few of them in order to keep running, as making it to the goal isn't your only objective in this Fantastic Contraption. You also need to do it efficiently.
Fantastic Contraption Prius Edition includes a free level editor which can be used for fun or to design your own challenges to enter into the competition. Once you've built a level to your liking, press the "submit" button and you will automatically be entered into the contest. User-created levels will be judged on creativity, fun, innovation, and how appropriate they are to the theme of the game. The top ten submissions win $1,000 each and a spot in a user-created level pack that will be released once the competition is over. The contest ends November 1, so if you want to enter, it's time to get building!
Fantastic Contraption Prius Edition has also received a considerable cosmetic update, which is a welcome addition to just about any game. You'll also find several new levels to puzzle your way through. Whether you're looking for a little more Fantastic Contraption to enjoy, or want your chance at winning a snazzy contest, Fantastic Contraption Prius Edition will give you your fix.
Please note: The above referenced contest is being offered by Inxile Entertainment through Kongregate, and Jayisgames is not connected with the contest in any way.
