@Apjjm - You played an older version of my R1, and hence your replay doesn't work for the current version. I was confused why it wasn't working, but I figured out that it's for V1. Even with V2, I'm sure you'll get it solved just the same :)

Great job to both Armani and Apjjm!

Armani, your solution to my R3 isn't what I had in mind, but since it uses all (non-decorative) skills, accomplishes most of the same tasks as I intended, just in different ways, and is overall clever in its own right, it's a perfectly acceptable alternate solution! :thumbsup: (Also, it's supposed to depict two claw machines, but I definitely didn't do the best job with that.)

Apjjm, your solution to my R1 is spot on! And thanks for the couple nice things you had to say; my R1's definitely the level I'm most proud of this contest. :D

@Armani and @Apjjm

While I thought to say both of your solutions are acceptable, the way Apjjm used the shimmiers I worry that they can be used to cheese the level somehow. So, instead of making alternatives viable, I have decided for V3 to maybe force towards the intended solution with some OWAs I added. So, especially to Armani, sorry to break your solution there which I said was acceptable before :XD: I feel they'll make the solution too obvious now, but once again I might be proven wrong there :P

@Armani Intended solution for my R3! :thumbsup:

@Apjjm Totally acceptable solution, but there are indeed ways to solve it without the step-through/interrupting technique. ;)

Sorry for posting again so soon after posting V3 of my R1, but I didn't realize V2 of my R3 wasn't included yet. My mistake there, I should had checked before I posted in the update topic earlier this hour. I have now included the file to download in the update topic

@Apjjm

Intended solution! :thumbsup:  And the "nearly" was exactly what I wanted to block.

I totally agree with the nitpck here! I really need those few extra tiles though to either make the steel thinner or the floor thicker. This will indeed be the first thing I do to this level when including it in a pack! ;)

Apjjm's solution to my R1 was entirely acceptable.

The solution to my R2 is very different to Armani and I's... but it does still use every skill, so I'll tentatively keep it as an alternate solution. I'm satisfied with my R1 and R2 being relatively open-ended.

@Apjjm

Both of your solutions to my levels are backroutes but I've made easy fixes to them.

@Apjjm As much as I hate to be "that guy," I made a V3 for my R2. I spent quite a while debating over whether to accept your solution or not, because it's really not that far off, but while it is decently clever in its own right, it misses just enough of the tricks I intended that I decided to update the level. Sorry :(

@Apjjm not quite intended :( I moved the force field a bit to the right so you cannot release the blocker and break the floor with a single miner anymore.

I resolved all the updated levels ;)
