My entry for 'Handling'

Got a bit lucky and made a tweak to get the goal.

I saw this on another thread, but it's much the same bug, the "helicopter":

I humbly submit to you the worst Tube-climber ever.

I'm going to go ahead and shotgun you guys with all of my terrible solutions (which is just about all of them, because of how I play the game):
A Note: All of these solutions do work.


Starting off we have the only solutions with a visible idea. Unfortunately, that idea works very, very badly:
Tube:

Big Ball:

This one isn't so bad, I suppose. Similar in some ways to other attempts, but it definitely has a little something extra:
Back and Forth:

And finally, we have the downright ridiculous. I'm not sure which of these is worse.

Another exploder, using the unstable windmill design:

That is just hilarious. So much totally unnecessary flapping about before it does anything useful! I don't think a game has ever made me just grin stupidly at the screen as much as Fantastic Contraption! :D

On a Roll

It simply didn't work out right and it's boring and bad.

You are truly the king or terrible solutions. Big ball was especially painful to watch, and I don't even understand how the tube one manages to inch up like that.

Wow! Thats awesome! Didn't know the game's physics were up to do that. You actually made some kind of "timer" :lol:

Is this one working for everyone? For me, it spins for several seconds, and looks like maybe it's going to explode, but then calms down and ends up just sitting still with only two of the wheels spinning.

Works okay for me. Derails itself and then moves the piece into place... awful and awesome at the same time.

LOL! Why don't you post this in ''Hilarious fails''? You posted in ''Worst solutions''. This is not a solution.

Weird. Is it possible for it to work on some computers and not others?

This one is fairly simple. I've titled it "Anticipation" for obvious reasons.
Warning: This takes nearly nine minutes to finish.

I don't think there is supposed to be a Q at the end of your link... and design 85117 is a very decent walker so I assume you were trying to link to something different.
