ARGHHHHHH!!! I cannot beat it!!!

Come talk about the game, your Contraptions, and your solutions!

ARGHHHHHH!!! I cannot beat it!!!

Postby ksot on Sat Sep 19, 2009 7:32 pm

I beat all of the levels on my own in relatively little time except the last one. I have spent many hours trying to put together something for this one and I still cannot do it. I didn't want to cave in and ask for help but I'm close to giving up here. Am I on the right track? Or am I overcomplicating things as usual? here is my most recent progress.

I'm asking for hints please, not solutions.

Thanks!

It's okay, that level stumped several other people around the time of its release. The only way I have been able to beat it is by putting the dynamic circles on a chain and using a powered wheel to get them spinning. When the goal pieces touch the spinning dynamic circle, it speeds them up enough to reach the goal.

Edit- That is a great idea, by the way. Perhaps making the chain longer would fix it?

Wow. I've never seen a design like that, it looks like you are pretty close!

Compared to most solves of that level.. you are overcomplicating it. :)

Hmmm no I think the little car thing that pushes the balls is getting jammed between the statics... I tried making the car longer but then it just fails completely.

i know you you feel, I beat all the paid levels the first day I got the full version except Brick Layer, and More Balls, I beat Brick Layer the next day but it took me like 3 weeks to do More Balls

I fixed it, but you said not to post a solve so I will keep it to my self. (


(Hint: Make the thing that pushes the balls longer so it wont get stuck)

Grrrr, I tried making the stick longer SO many times but adjusting any little thing messes up the whole process =/

Guess I'll keep trying it now that I know it's possible hehe...

To tell you the truth I have NEVER beaten More Balls by myself. WHen I got my paid account and logged in it said I already beat the level. I never really tried it that much because it seemed boring. I'm actually gonna go try it right now...

OMG I swear I saved the exact contraption that got 3/4 balls in and now when I go back to it I get 0 lol...

I gave up on this for three years, found FC2 and decided I need to beat this first. Put another handful of hours into this design and finally caved in and did it the normal way... http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11830404

If anyone wants to finish the original here for me I'd love to see it. I wish I had asked Hero88 to post his.
