Welcome to the showcase of many many retrievers! Here you can learn and share different or useful techniques to fetching a ball/square out of a certain place! I know when I first started getting into this game, retrievers were my weakness. Now, they have become an art and are second nature to me. Please feel free to contribute as much as possible and refer back to it as much as possible. This is a community collection.
To have your design posted below, create a retriever on one of the following levels, then either publish it, or if you wish to just post it, feel free to do that as well.
Here are some levels designed to replicate scenerios we would normally come across in levels.Levels:Lateral Retrievers
