Could this be the next Nanaca Crash?  
Found a fun new flash game: Levers

The object is to cause the little dial at the top to turn, by hanging objects on the scales (just click and drag the hooks to the hanger loops). Every time it makes a full revolution, you get a new object to hang. Each object has a different weight, and some have special properties:
  • The water bucket has a spigot at the bottom that can be opened by hovering the pointer over it. You can adjust its weight in this manner. To refill, dip it in the water at the bottom of the screen.
  • Hanging the birdhouse for the first time summons birds. They will sometimes go into the birdhouse, but also alight on the hangers, and they have their own weight. They're kind of frustrating, because they have a habit of moving right when you're about to achieve the necessary balance. You can cause them to take off and find a new roost by hovering the pointer.
  • The snowman will eventually melt until only his hat is left. This takes a while.
  • The sponge absorbs water if you dip it, but will dry out (and become lighter) over time.
I've gotte up to what appears to be the Head of God, but after that I'm kinda stumped.

I just got to the Head Of God, and I can't seem to find a place to actually /put/ it on my tree.

The game ends once you get the heavy Head of God hung and balanced. The trick is getting that heavy thing to balance!

Actually, the *first* trick is find a place to hang him. Clue: it involves the snowman. And MAN are those birds annoying!

Once you get the head hung, there's another trick to get the balance right.
(not so much a trick as a shift of items)

I just don't understand it: what makes the dial turn and what doesn't? I can't even get past the ball, birdhouse, bucket and submarine with a couple of smaller balance arms. After that nothing I do makes the dial turn.

You have to keep everything balanced. If any items are touching the water, then the dial won't turn.
