Fantastic Contraption

September 6th, 2008 by Crusader

Speaking of Flash-based games, the game taking up most of my friends’ time this week has been Fantastic Contraption, a physics-based puzzle game with established challenges for each level and support for saving of your creations, like foo’s conveyor belt thingie.

    do we really have to feature flash and java games now on i think now we finally hit rock bottom of linux gaming

  2. Crusader Says:

    Not necessarily, but I think the compelling ones are worth pointing out even if they’re Flash-based :(

    I think that’s a very worthy game. Like phun (which was featured here), but it has goals.

    Fail to see any reason why it shouldn’t be featured.

    well, then lets be fair and feature all windows games here too, that are worth it. i mean… they usually run under linux, via wine, which is not an emulator, so they must be running native.

    And lets get our panties in a bunch while we’re at it.

    you need a little technical knowledge to understand this, maybe thats the reason why there are even people defending flash game links on linuxgames. technically running games in wine and on the flash player is exactly the same. both times, the games were not meant to run on linux, but there is a way to get it run on linux – x86 only – i run linux at three more platforms where there is no flash 9 player available at all. now there is no use for anymore, because they just got a link list for browser games, like 1000th of other sites out there. farewell linuxgames, you were quite a important site for linux gamers over the last years, thanx for that – but i guess everything has to come to an end sooner or later.

    i’ll from now on will only check for games via . this discussion came up quite some time there, most times if flash ‘developers’ just didn’t understand, why theire games didn’t show up. obviously hp staff understands what linux games are.

    I think you’re just jealous that a developer had to do zero work to make their game cross-platform :)
