I was pointed in the direction of a fun little physics game called Fantastic Contraption earlier (thanks Naseer). It’s pretty reminiscent of other sand box physics games, most notably Soda Constructor. It may not be the most original game but it is well executed and introduces goal based play through some nice level design. The catch being that you have to pay $10 to make levels or play the levels of others. Not allowing users to generate or share content seems like a strange business model, especially considering the established communities of other similar free games. The 20 free levels are definitely worth a look though.

UPDATE: There are some really nice videos on YouTube showing the variety and imagination of peoples solutions to the same levels.
