Thanks! Both of your solutions for my levels are intended, i.e., for Bumper Cave and for Rhizome. Happy to see Lix replays again, and I'm really happy that Rhizome leads to the intended solution.

I'll let geoo judge your solution to Pommes Schranke, but he'll very likely consider your solution intended, too.

Hi everyone,

here's my replays for Rule 1 so far.
I liked Primitive Instinct a lot but I haven't solved it yet. Not even sure how to reach the goal tbh ???
I'm also at a loss with Internecion Cube and Tomb of Doom, but they're fun and I'll keep trying.

I had a little help from Icho with Garden of Love, but I'm not sure if it's intended like this. Really liked the theming and decoration.

Demolishing of Ruins gave me less trouble than the others, but MAN that dragon is intimidating :D . Great concept.

The Instrument had a great aha moment when I finally got it, really enjoyed that.

I will not stop blowing up the Construction work, because I have some spares at the end, and therefore this might not have been what I was supposed to do :)

Just a heads up to everyone, once I get my R3 done and I upload it, I will be taking a hiatus from the game until probably about the beginning of March. Meaning, Icho will likely record his playthrough of the contest levels during that time, which I assume he'll do whenever he gets some time off from work or is in the mood to. So, for solutions please refer to his videos whenever they become available. I kind of hit my low point with the game and therefore need an extensive break from playing/solving. Nevertheless, when I do return, which will certainly be long before the playing phase ends, I will play through and record my solutions to them as well, including the Lix entries! ;) I'll still be around to check solutions to my levels, I just won't be going through everyone's levels for a while until after my hiatus.

Seems like you played an old version of my R1, as when I run the replay for V6 it fails. You can grab the latest version of the level in the update topic, or you can just redownload the pack in the OP, as it does say that it is up at V6, which is the most recent version of the level ;)

For Icho's R1, let him or any of us who have solved it know if you want some help. I pre-tested it, and I must say it's a great level, though it's certainly not easy!

3) Nieschs' Splash or Splat and The Magic of Lemmings

The first one is a backroute, I made a V6. The second is the intended solution. :)

That's impressive Eric! Well done. I'll add a talisman for your solution where you spare 2 skills. Your third is the intended solution. :thumbsup:

@Icho

Already commented on your solutions to my R1 and R2, but I will post here as will. You pretty much got the intended solutions to them. Nice job! :thumbsup:

R1 - Pretty much intended. Only the details in the bottom left area differ, but you made the bottom left more complicated than it needs to be :P There originally wasn't a timer, but after I saw a couple of solutions from Simon and Armani that involved some unnecessary waiting, I decided to end that madness. Not only that, it's to block a backroute that I don't think I can fix in any other way besides maybe making some pickups.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

R2 - Intended! :thumbsup:
