To get things started here's one I just finished....

An excelent idea.

Tweek coined the phrase 'green' solutions for solutions with no powered wheels.
I've been curious to see how many green solutions there are.

Here is Tweeks original "green" solution to Mind the Gap:

I hadn't even considered green options! Great, now I'll have to go through and beat them all again :/

My efforts:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3616 - On a Roll - Simple
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3640 - Full-Up
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3719 - Higher - New and improved
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3709 - Around the Bend - New and improved
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3696 - Down Under - Don't much like this solution
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3687 - Big Ball - A lot of tweaking
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=3702 - Handling - Clumsy, but it works

That's great! Why did I even put powered wheels in the game? ;)

Wow - I didn't even think about trying the tube. Considered it impossible to do the green way. Thats just awesome :shock:

Well, I better go back and have a look at some of the other impossible levels 8-)

These are just amazing. I would love to be able to create a gravity powered catapult.

Ingenious! I had tried building a catapult with what limited space there was, adding as much weight as I could but.. :?

Now go to work on unpossible :!:

I've been working on a green solution for Awash, but I can't quite get it to work.

Sweet! It reminds me of roman aqueducts.

I also got one for Back and Forth, not elegant though.

I have been trying to do one for Up the Hump but that block is just too heavy. :evil:

By my account, the levels unbeaten by green means are...

Up the Hump
Awash
Up the Stairs
Four Balls
Unpossible

I've made some attempts but no luck so far.

Has anyone come up with good a gravity driven catapult design?

I did a quick tweak and got it twice as far, maybe try looking into further development? :)

edit: and this is a gravity-driven catapult, will probably work for a few other levels. :)
