Curious also, but I would say not since the ball passes through the goal never to be seen again.

Yeah, just for fun i sent a contraption over that would come back if it hit something, never to be seen again. I think there's no way it is champ, just wanted to make sure.

Do you mean "bomb wheels" too? They are the best thing in FC.

Just put a clockwise wheel and an unpowered wheel on the base then a proturding counter clockwise wheel raised off the ground in front of the contraption.

Sorry to tell you this, but you can still grab the Goal Piece in Gatekeeper.

Also, do you accept designs that use glitches like pushing a stick through the goal piece?

It has to be within the goal border (I think :)) AND must be at a 100% complete stop.

not true http://FantasticContraption.com/?levelId=228655, the victory line is actually in the middle of the dark border.

Nope, Canyon has an empty gap just off screen so the goal piece will disappear... unless you stop it somehow :)

Why so many bad comments????

Postby centas rev on Mon Mar 02, 2009 5:56 pm

First, what's up with all the bad comments,I think it's awesome not being a member and getting 5 extra new levels (soon I will become member). Second, I do have to say that the over 18 age limit is kinda weird? If anything make it 12 and older, you'll get more people and more people will be happy. Third, YES I like the I-Phone prizes, I wanted to get one but then decided not to, but YES now I want to!!! Btw, this game rules.

As that would definitely register as a goal, it should register as a champ as well.

That is my least favorite level. The first one I can get so close but fall just barely short

I submitted a solution to one level before reading the instructions about only one submission total ... can I take that one back and resubmit with all five?

Check out the badge descriptions here: http://wiki.fantasticcontraption.com/wi ... pion_badge
And the definition of a tick here: http://wiki.fantasticcontraption.com/wiki/Tick


I did look at those descriptions and they are not all that clear. My contraption DOES put the goal object in the goal so that it will stay there forever. However it leaves the goal aria after the winning screen once before coming to that state. I am unsure that it popping out once before it stays put disqualifies it for the champ badge.

WOW, that means I get 1 point PER second. Now I need to rethink all my contraptions. It is a game of speed more than pieces.

doesn't matter how many times a goal object pops out or in or anything - as long as the goal object ends up in the goal forevermore at some point it's a champ. :)

the rest of your contraption doesn't matter, just the goal object.
