Waffle has made the first entry into the comp with a respectable set of solutions. Lets see how long it lasts. Will anyone be able to challenge him?

EDIT: schmittd throws down the gauntlet and takes 1st place. Can Waffle come back with something better? Can anyone else better schmittd?

well, after a second submission from both Waffle and schmittd, there's been no change in leaderboard positions, but schmittd sure can feel Waffle breathing down his neck now! Will schmittd maintain his lead? Does anyone else wanna jump into the duo's clash?

It seems I miscalculated the goal area for Bumping Heads and so the goal piece rests 1 pixel outside of the build area if you get it to stop on the left. I'm sorry, but I will still count boomerang if you can get it to stop on the left (even though 1 pixel is outside)

Oh my word. It doesn't get any closer than this! After a strong resubmission by Waffle which put him in 1st place, schmittd followed with an update of his own that now sees both entrants tied for 1st place! We've also had another strong contender enter with an initial submission by xhawkx seeing him land in at the 3rd spot. With a reputation for overtaking his rivals with no mercy, will we see xhawkx challenge Waffle and schmittd? Will anyone else dare to enter? Stay tuned for more updates!

We have another entrant, marcxb who stunned me with his solution to Bumping Heads. Also, xhawkx resubmits and moves closer in his fight for 1st place! With plenty of time left to play, this should get more interesting! I'm also wondering if Waffle or schmittd will find that elusive point to take the top spot.

Looks like Bumping Heads is the level to beat. Oh how I wish I was done with this already. :roll:

Update! schmittd submitted an improved design and has taken 1st place! The best news? The optimal score STILL hasn't been reached. There's hope for the others and for anyone else who wants to join. There's still time!

Patacoman has stepped up to challenge everyone and his initial entry puts him in joint 1st place trailing schmittd on ticks! If that's his initial submission, I'm scared to see his next entry. And just to tease you all even more and leave you scratching your heads, the optimal score still hasn't been reached!

Holy moly! xhawkx makes his third submission and storms the pack jumping into first place! And, you know what?....You guessed it, the optimal score still hasn't been reached.
