Managed to solve 2 R2 levels tonight, but one of them felt like a backroute.

@The Tomato Watcher:

Thanks for the replay for my R2. Yup, that's a backroute. For V2, I've adjusted the time limit, so this will probably force the intended solution I have in mind now :P

@The Tomato Watcher:

Getting closer, but not quite what I had in mind. Not really noticeable, but for V3 a slight shift in the terrain, but still shouldn't be a problem for you.

@kaywhyn Hope I've got it now, it certainly felt more challenging.

played through all rule1 levels. 8-)
They all probably are not quite intended :sick: other than Icho's level which is I'm pretty sure open-ended.

For my level... it's much closer to the intended solution than you think! You solved all of the 'problems' you were intended to solve, and used most of the skills in the places you were intended to use them... you just did it in a way that takes a lot longer and was slightly more complicated, but saves a skill as a result.

I think I'm okay with leaving this as an alternate solution. I'd rather err on the side of keeping it a little more open-ended, to make it more accessible to people. Plus it provides a way to solve it without having to multitask, which I think people will appreciate.

If I really wanted to block this solution, then adding a 2:30 timer is something I could do. It would fit the level too, since some base infiltration have to be done under time pressure, after all ;P But I don't feel the need to do that yet. Another option I'll consider is to make beating it in <2:30 into a talisman.

@Armani Welp, that's frustrating.

Here's Why (click to show/hide)

V2 is out now and should hopefully render that route impossible.

@Armani

Ugh, I can't believe I missed the obvious backroute in those two places at the very start for my R1. They were definitely oversights on my part, but at the same time that's what I get for waiting til very close to the end of the submission phase and not doing enough testing on my own levels :XD: For V2, I've added terrain and OWAs. Hopefully that blocks out other alternatives, but let's see how it holds up now!

@Armani

Different from the intended solution, but this is also a really awesome solution that uses all the skills that I think this is a perfectly acceptable alternative.
