I've been playing DROD , a great game from which I've learned a lot about puzzle design. I've also been learning Python, with which I'm working on converting my own (and my only) puzzle game to PC. Beyond that, I have schoolwork to do (and the simple fact that Firefox recognizes the word 'schoolwork...

#21-23: Just tread carefully... #24: Very Good! :D This took me several tries, but I got all of them. #25: This one also took me some time. It looks simple, but getting all the infotrons to fall down to where you can safely collect them does take some thought and reflexes. What took me the longest w...

Another interesting set! #16: This is another one where I wonder if 'deadly when colliding with' for snik snaks should really be off... but it sure would be hard with it on :shock: #17: I didn't see my time on this one but I think it was fast. #18: Here it would actually be reasonable to turn that s...

6 sec first try... 4 sec second try. :D
Sascha's right, it's not a puzzle, but that makes little difference to me so long as it's fun. On to Season 3!

Wow... I skip coming here for one day, and look what happens... 3.2.6.1 released, and 2 more seasons of these! I'd better get to work. :D #11: I actually havn't solved this one yet. I know the trick but I need to think more anyway. #12: I got this one second try... blew up the snik snak too! 129 poi...

This one certainly took me a bit longer. :) Perhaps a set should be made of these... They're fun.

Interesting. I've played a lot of sidescrolling games, though, so I learned plenty about R'n'D gravity when I first discovered the game--meaning I know that dirt and base are 'reachable despite gravity.' Without that knowledge, this might have taken me considerably longer. I wonder: would this be po...

Nice! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with the snik snak, but it just sorta happened... oh and I almost blew up the exit too :oops: I also tried replacing the snik snak with an electron, but I just realized they also follow the left side, so it's no different (and I didn't find a way to b...

Now I've forgotten how to do this one...

And I think it *might* have depended partially on random, which is obviously not ideal for a puzzle.

Yes, I would like that. I also appreciate the consistent 10x10 (or 8x8 without the border). It's nice not to have to count--and being small it's no trouble to copy by hand. (I never could get the 'export as level' button in LvSketch to work...)

See, I had asked if it was 10 or 12, so I just somehow find it funny that it should happen to be 11. It's just my sense of humor... different, I know.

I would have to rate this one as the most interesting of the five. Dynamite (and red floppies, of course) add something to a level in that they give you more options, but in the end I found only one *basic* way to do this level, and all the little variations on that still require both red disks. Bes...

11? :lol:
But now I see how, except still for the last part. I'll work on that after I take a look at your fifth one.

Brief. I actually didn't use the red floppy...?
