 Build a contraption to move the pink wheel into the pink square - that's it.
VERY addictive - one of the best physics-based games out there.
Already played it? Try Fantastic Contraption 2!

Balance all of the shapes without allowing any to fall off of the screen.
Also available: Perfect Balance 2!

Build a cell, fight off viruses, survive harsh worlds, and save the Platypus species!
Half tutorial, half game - CellCraft makes learning about cells fun! 

Love it, but not really sure what to say about this one.
Fun? Yup. Addictive? Sure.
No real goal, more of a lab in which to experiment.
