Since most of our staff is vacationing over this winter break (except for me), things will be pretty slow. So I decided to spice things up a bit for you! I'm making official new badges! I'm not the best at 16x16 art but I hope the icons will do until we get further replacements. The Sweep Badge
: This means you've swept the level of all the dynamic objects that started in the level (before you made your contraption). Cleaning your own contraption off the level as well would indicate a Clean Sweep, or
. The Rodless Badge
: This is fairly self-explanatory. You only use wheels to defeat the level! No rods or sticks allowed. Yes, that will mean all of your wheels are unpowered (unless, of course, you attach them to goal objects!) The Badgeless Badge
: Though self-contradictory, you can obtain the badgeless badge only if your contraption finishes the level.. without obtaining any other badges! This can be hard to do sometimes. (used to be called the "Solved" badge) The HandsOff Badge
: You earn this badge if you don't touch the goal object from it's original starting position during the build phase! That means no connecting rods to it, and not dragging it around on the screen at all. It's not possible to touch the goal object if it starts outside the build area, of course. The Water Badge
: You earn this badge by using only the hollow blue water rods. This is like the brown badge but a step harder!
Remember, it's not possible to get every badge on every level. But a good level will allow for everything.

Happy Holidays again! (and for our players in the southern hemisphere, happy summer solstice!)
