I noticed this comp hours earlier and was writing my reply but then it vanished lol. Well, I'll say it again "Devilishly challenging levels so count me in!" :grin:

Submitting in the thread? Now that's confidence ;)

@ID, yeah I posted 'em briefly last night but wanted to double check something.

And from these first solves, maybe I shoulda triple checked.
Good stuff from the first two in.

Edit (Thurdsay):
Waffle has crept closer to Cruiser and IGLima is nipping at his heels.

Edit (Fri):
skitters and 2phun join the fray with very nice solves
the world (or at least me) wonders how the Crusher always keeps that steamroller up in pole position.
one of the long lost level creators wasn't as long lost as I thought. just saw him on last night. but so far hasn't used his insider knowledge of his level.

2phun, you aren't nipping at Cruiser's heels, you're pretty much standing on them.

And Nastix comes in with a solid set of solves.

Next update Sunday night.

I know which design I need to improve...just a question of making it work. Sigh.

leaderboard update

jonnychoob ties Cruiser
and jdel locks horns with 2phun for second


I can't believe some of these solves
not only has the optimal score not been reached,
no player has reached the best score for more than 1 level

edit:
3 way tie for the top
jdel's math degree revoked for failure to add 3 single digit numbers correctly
the statement in bold above is correct

leaderboard update

2phun moves up into the front pack
Nastix ties up skitters
and the bold statement still holds true.

edit:
11PM
Cruiser has pulled ahead.
Will anyone catch him?
Will anyone reach the optimal score?

edit:
1:30AM

2phun catches Cruiser
will the birthday boy sit idly by?

next update tomorrow night.
