It will suck hours of your time. You're welcome. :twisted:
People suck.

I don't think you need to dice suckatude up into little groups of "clients" or "mean people"... it saves you a lot of effort just to put the whole human race into one big ball of suck. - Mr Sparkle

tanks for the links. I managed to get to one, where there was a gap, and it looked like you had to somehow push the large round ball into the gap to fill it up, and slowly get over there...couldnt figure it out though..:(

I probably made this a lot more complicated than it has to be, but it works.

WOW, you're my HERO! I never would've thought there's be a way to get the object to the goal before the ball fell. I kept thinking you had to build something to crawl up on the ball and roll it away. You're a genius. Now thanks to your generous genius I can waste time with the next level!

This is a blast.

Here's one I'm not proud of making, but it cracks me up to see it work. :lol:

I got ill watching that one work. It's like some evolutionary reject that manages to survive despite its obvious flaws. One can only hope some predator will swoop down and put it out of its (and our) misery.

That, and it hadn't occurred to me to use free-standing wooden rods.

I know...isn't it the most ridiculous thing to try? I like how it wrecks everything behind it before getting some forward momentum.

It will suck countless seconds of your time. Well, you could count them, if you were so inclined.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1472982 Tube! For the first time in many levels I figured this one out for myself without looking at anyone else's design. (Well I did it by myself for Down Under, too, but that took hours of tweaking a sub-par design http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1473044 ) This is a fun game. Thank GOD other people can (and do) link their designs so you can get ideas and cheat past levels where you're stuck.
