The Tube continues to defy me. I don't even want to think about Unpossible.
I finally tweaked my bloody Unpossible into submission...

My son and I came up with a couple good ones for the Tube...

Funny thing is, I played this for sooo long and didn't know that you could change the position of the pink ball/cube/etc. :doh:

How is this "anything but gaming"? :wub:

Nice idea for a physics engine. $10 is a little high though, I'd pay no more than $5 for it.
My designs are usually very rough, minimalistic implementations of a basic concept. I completed the first page before I started saving my designs, remodeled some of them by memory. I got till "14 - Four Balls" so far, made a working mill for it but didn't save it, but I did some later ones instead, too. The last was one of the easiest to solve for me, for example, the first try was successful.

5 - The Wall: Ram
8 - Higher: Stilts
7 - Full-up: Lancer, Ramp, Bridge
9 - Around the Bend: Turn around, Zero parts
11 - Mission to Mars: Teeter, Tail
12 - Up the Stairs: Walker, Walker 2
13 - Big Ball: Propelling
14 - Four Balls: Paternoster, Paternoster 2 (with a little circus show)
15 - Down Under: Rolling Stones
16 - Awash: Climber
17 - Handling: Tip
18 - Tube: Up the Chimney
19 - Back and Forth: Tug
21 - U-turn: Caterpillar

First we have a design based on KC's 4 ball design

Then we have a machine originally built to make a bridge across the gap. Uh... this one didn't turn out as expected.

Interesting result of experimenting with breakages. Due to whatever way breaks are used, the results of a break will be different on every single run.

Case in point, this puzzle. If you watch it a few times, you'll noticed major differences in how things play out post-break.

EDIT: Oddly, after saving the puzzle the changes seem to have vanished. Prior to saving, it was changing on me every time.

Trying other peopls boards, and my 8yr old making Impossible Boards to play with and test out has been more hours of entertainment across numerous days than a Disney DVD.

RAW POWER is like a pulling guard that clears the way for the rest of the team. You don't have to be afraid of brute force. You just need to get out of the way.

Regardless, it's better than the sissy approach of just meandering through all the nasty little orange balls, avoiding confrontation.
