Reverse + boomerang challenge!

Postby Luke1000 on Sat Oct 11, 2008 5:36 am

this may get you... Try making a contraption that can complete a level without any :cwheel: and at least 1 :ccwheel: note: the :ccwheel: must have some affect to the level...

Here is what I don't want to see:

True, the vehicle does move the ball slighty, but it has no affect on the contraption.

I've made a few... but those are the easy ones. I'm not good enough for levels 12-21.

Rolling away
Reach up
Mind the gap
Junkyard
The wall
On a roll
Full-up
Higher
Around the bend
Up the hump
Mission to mars
Big ball
Handling

Try and do the ones I haven't done, I'll place them down here...

Up the stairs EMDF's contraption
Four balls EMDF's contraption
Down under EMDF's contraption
Awash Sccook's contraption
Tube Lukasran's contraption
Back and forth Mr Znf's contraption
Unpossible Sccook's contraption
U-turn Wlapizza's contraption

The boomerang reverse challenge is also here:

Rolling away: Luke1000's contraption :boomerang: :clean:
Reach up:
Mind the gap:
Junkyard:
The wall:
On a roll:
Full-up:
Higher:
Around the bend:
Up the hump:
Mission to mars:
Up the stairs:
Big ball: Sccook's contraption :boomerang:
Four balls:
Down under:
Awash:
Handling:
Tube: Sccook's contraption :boomerang: :boomerang:
Back and forth:
Unpossible:
U-turn:

Good luck!

at least one? =s

Then back and forth is easy, I went through all the trouble using only one:

Yes, that was a good level.

May i also say 1 thing...

Please try to refrain from using reverse catapults.

I'm not saying you can't use them, but maybe keep them as a last resort.

If you're stuck for ideas, then get 2 unpowered wheels, connect them, add a powered wheel on to of one, and connect it to the other.

I made these a while ago, but here they are:
Four Balls
Up The Stairs

and this one is a more efficient Higher (and a champ too):
Higher

Great so far!

Ok, the remaining levels are down under, tube, and unpossible. Apart from unpossible I think you can handle them...

oh and awash.

I've got an 8-piece tube. I made it before checking if there were any more replies, so I missed the one in the previous post.

I also made a 36-piece Down Under soltuion.

Sorry.

I'll change it ASAP.

If you don't mind, can you show me your links like this? www.insertadresshere.comorsomething
That way, I can copy and paste the links.

Although I think Emdf's contraption works more efficently, Lukasran got his contraption in the forum 1st, so i;m sticking with his.

Tube in 4
(Not original concept. I've seen this done before.)

Just remembered an old boomerang solution that I did for Big Ball:

Well done. You have complete the reverse challenge.
But...
It isn't over yet...

You must now attempt the reverse challenge as a boomerang!

Here's an example from Sccook:
Happy contrapion making!

Now that is good. See if you can make more like that... I'll try too.
