So I recently remembered this game and it's killing me trying to find it. I'm not even sure if it still exists, but I'm hoping someone else remembers it too. It was a game on this sort of educational site for kids. Well it wasn't really a game, it was more of a builder. You basically just built a system - there were options of pipes and ball generators and a bunch of other cool things. Then you would press play and it would show the ball going through all the pipes and obstacles you arranged. I absolutely loved it as a kid and I'd love to know if it still exists. I think there was "widget" somewhere in the name but I couldn't find it on google.

Some specific things I remember about it: There was a chicken ball generator where it pooped out a ball. There was a monkey that held a ping pong paddle and would hit the ball back if you shot it at him. There was a bridge for the balls to go over, a spiral, a spring to make the ball reverse its track, and you could flush the balls down a toilet. There was all kinds of cool stuff.

If only I could remember the website it was on.

I don't know about a browser game, but did it play like these Rube Goldberg games?

Especially the Crazy Machines and The Incredible Machine series have been very popular for a long time. Happy

I actually asked my brother and he remembered it was iknowthat.com. The website doesn't exist anymore but I found the game on another website! http://streaming.discoveryeducation.com/braingames/iknowthat/Widgets/Widgets.cfm?Topic=&Title=

There were puzzles sort of like those, but as a kid I really just loved the "make your own" option.

I believe that this Ed Edd n Eddy game is almost identical to what you are talking about. http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/games/eds/candymachine/index.html
