    Tom, thanks. I love the string designs because they morph. They adapt easily to the environment. I imagined them as caterpillars or snakes. When you watch them move, they ease into impossible positions and climb over obstacles.

    Your mission to mars is interesting with the wrapped string versus the sticks I have. The Ball is brute force, nice. I will not look at the others yet, want to come up with my own way of looking at it. Down Under is next for me.

    How much fun it is

    Awesome! That was my initial idea on that, but I failed to implement it and have gone the easier way.

    My solution Down Under, strings again:

    Oops. Looks like I have to rework this one. Do not know why it would save it if it does not replay the same…

    I did screen shots of mine, so here is the solution for the Big Ball. I did use separate units, had one squeeze behind the big ball and then force the thing under the ball:

    The "Down Under" level is driving me crazy.

    I keep getting just tantalisingly close, and fall at the last moment.

    I refuse to look at you guys' solutions until I figure it out.

    Your solution for Awash looks the same as mine! We could be the same person.
    Yep, your right it was yours. Link is now fixed

    Those are brilliant. I was never much involved with physics actually. I also did not want to look at things before I started. But I shall learn.

    I'm trying to come up with another idea for the tube, this is what I've got so far: link

    Just like mmj's in design, I don't think there can be any other design, unless someone can figure it out.

    The only other might be a sort of catapult. But I never made any in any level, although I tried in quite a few.

    I've just finished the Back And Forth level: link

    That took some figuring out

    I have seen other designs for this which take advantage of bugs in the application.

    PS I don't want to take credit for the catapult idea - the fantastic contraption forums are full of people crazily making catapults, though I must say my "flinger" is pretty spiffy
