I've enjoyed levels with moving objects to intercept.

Here's mine on that theme:

So I dont have the full version however, I'm going to attempt to illustrate my level nonetheless;

@
|
.\. . . . . . . . . . . ________
. .\_start_________ @
. . . . . . . . . . . . .\ .|
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .\ |__goal___

Each of the lines represents a green portion of the level, the slopes are meant to be less sloped, but still steep enough to allow unpowered vehicles and wheels to pick up speed. The @ signs are large orange balls, and the start should begin partially on the furthest left slope, the goal should be on the extreme right side of the bottom flat portion. If someone who feels they understand my explanation would please make a level with their interpretation I'd be most grateful.

PS dont mind the periods, they're there so the drawing arranges itself correctly.

Not sure where to submit solutions for levels. Someone made a very easy level in appearance with the challenge of being creative. I made the Giant walk himself across the line(with some structural support around him.

I made these levels 2, I think they are pretty good, do you?

Grab and Go I made this level last night, it took me a while to perfect :)

I'm almost positive that I didn't do it right. Can you explain what i should change?

I ... just wanted to point out that he can't see the level since he can't pay for the game so he can't make the level so...

Just wanted to point it out.

However, it looks pretty spot-on the interpretation from my P.O.V.

The problem with making things different and more difficult is that in order to do that, you have to vary the terrain a bit. Once you start to vary terrain, you end up with a more sophistocated level. And everyone will want it to be asthetically pleasing, if not overly decorated. The other problem comes with the idea of variety. The more ways you have of solving a level, the harder it gets to keep it competitive and original. It's a pretty fine line to walk.

This is a one-time $10 fee. I quite happily paid it. After all, even for just 40 hours a month, where else can you find entertainment that costs just $0.25 an hour?

Looks easy.....till your find out the ball gets stuck or falls through if you dont make a bridge or ramp


http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=9830

----Big ball falls if you don't move fast enough, some smaller balls under he goal area add a bit of difficulty for a badly designed crawler if thats what you choose to do.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=9813

---actually meant to title it Tight Fit but people started posting submissions before i caught it

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=9731

-test your ability to balance and swing.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=9718

----little easier version of the last one.
