I think I backrouted V1 of "How to Self-Destruct a Factory" - I saved 100% - sorry Nessy.

And this one too - lots of tools left over.  Also, this is a far more appropriate song! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9sz9QzsWXc

Also, a version that saves an extra lemming (very similar to the other solution).

Thanks for playing Crane :)

Your solution to my Rule 2 level is okay... it's meant to be an open-ended level but maybe it's too open-ended. I'm going to make a slight tweak to it.

Both solutions to my Rule 3 level are backroutes :P Should be an easy fix though.

My solution to "2 Minutes Before The Mall Opens!" - I probably made it more difficult than I needed to, since I used some trickery to slow down the crowd leader, when really, I could have just had the pathfinder start closer to the edge and turn around - there's time for him to return.

Completed "Sunset Sprint!" - that level was actually quite fun.  The music really gives a fun vibe to "hurry up"!

Completed the Rank 1 levels, "Spider Attack!" (absolutely epic theming and music!), "Trinity Tower" (love the Freedom Planet 'memorial') and "Powerplant Faceplant".

If I had to give a word of warning, I tend to mark down levels if I'm forced to play with Clear Physics permanently enabled.  On some styles, it's almost impossible to work out what's a background object, what is solid terrain and what is steel, for example.

And "Forest Stroll".

"On the fritz" in Rank 2 is the only one I haven't completed yet.

I've got some stiff competition this time around, it seems!

Found another backroute in Butterfly Cult.  It's a cute level either way.

I'm currently trying to work out if Self-Destructing a Factory is even possible with just 1 Climber.

Well, it's possible, but the solution is evil!  And you're an evil genius, Nessy!

Completed "On the fritz" - that level was ridiculous, but interesting.

And that's the lot!  This might actually be the first time that I was able to complete every level in the contest.

So my personal opinions and ratings on the levels.  Try not to take too much to heart if I'm harsh:

Another solution to "Forest Stroll" - this one feels a bit more intended.
