When Oranges Attack!


Did you ever have to make a Rube Goldberg contraption in school? Simple mechanical moving parts are put together in a chain reaction sequence resulting in the performance of a basic task. (The fun hides the fact that it’s all physics-y and science-y and stuff.)

So let’s forget all the science and just say your goal is to pitch angry oranges across the room.  Have I got a game for you?!! Minute Maid When Oranges Attack-logo

When Oranges Attack!” is a contraption game where angry oranges need your help to set up elaborate Rube Goldberg-like contraptions and prevent America’s favorite family man – the game’s main character – from sipping Minute Maid® Pure Squeezed orange juice.

In the first level, “Lights, Camera, Contraption,” you need to drag items together in order to build an orange launching contraption, then push play to see if it works.  Add sandbags to the pulley to make it fall faster and launch farther.  You have two minutes to complete the level!

Once I got used to how things worked, I finished the level pretty easily and I collected a bunch of points! You can get extra points if you share your score,  the game or a game video with your Facebook friends.

And now I’m on level 2, “Juiceston, We Have a Problem.”  Good thing there are hints at the beginning of each level. This one is a little trickier!

    The only contraption we ever built was a Volcano project and of coarse a Ginger Bread House

    I can’t think of any contraptions we have made except using duct tape and super glue to fix things.lol
