Phil's Basketball Challenge

Postby Dr. Phil on Tue Sep 16, 2008 10:51 am

This is a new challenge, the idea came to me the other day.

Here is the challenge (which is pretty simple): Whoever can score the most points wins. Score points by throwing unpowered wheels (basketballs) into the goal. Use as many wheels as you want.

How to score points and rules
    -Each ball thrown from the left of the notch is 3 points
    -Each ball thrown from the right of the notch is 2 points
    -Each ball will be counted accordingly
    -The ball must be released from beyond each side of the notch (if it starts from the left and you drive it into the goal it is 2 points because it was not released from the left of the notch)
    -Balls may be connected to objects, but not each other

Just post your machines here for all to see. Hope this is original and you like it.

Wierd. I ran it again, and this time it gave me 8 (16 points). This happened to me on another level yesterday... i kept solving it, but once i saved it it ran differently. Ok, well... i'm the current leader with either 14, 16, or 22 points :toot:

Ok suck at making catapults. But I'm good at modifying others levels.

I did get 22 points 11 2 pointers.

If only I could keep that thing from launching them completely over.

If only I can figure out a way to get more balls in to it. It would go forever.
