    This game is class!

    I like it particularly because it is a break from those click-fest and nerve wrecking games that roam the internet.

    I can't get the last one, Unpossible is a fitting name for that level.

    Mine's a little simpler: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=784460


    EDIT: Oh, and it seems that Unpossible is possible after all.


    Just don't ask how long it took me to prove it.

    That was impressive, Japes. I gotta say, you guys've amazed me, lol. Here I was, buidling my little moon-rover vehicles, and you guys're building catapults'n'such!

    Holy fuck dude, that design is awesome....I'd never have thought of deploying something like that.

    I tried it but the music was so soothing it put me to sleep instantly. Cool game though.

    It's not as lean as Japes' design and for a good reason. You have no idea how much time was spent reworking that design until it worked, or until I thought of making it a pendulum. My initial design was a car pulling the pink block forward with a length of rope (well, a "rope" made out of those blue thingies anyway ) tied to a huge immovable structure behind it, the idea being that when the rope was stretched, the block would stand up, preferably on cue to fit within the goal field. Needless to say, it didn't work.

    Just turn the game music off and put on some Judas Priest.

    It took me ages to come up with this, and I feel it may have been far too complicated. In the end, I just needed to stick something on the front to catapult it. Beforehand, I was trying to make the whole thing go over by placing the box inside a triangle, but it always got stuck.
