I've been looking through the other player's solutions. Can someone tell me what's going on with this one?

I have no idea how they achieved that. I didn't think the joints could be broken.

Finally figured out how to do it. Mine wasn't nearly as well constructed as yours (it kinda fell apart there), but it got the job done.

The one I posted wasn't as well done as my original, I had made the original before I even made an account so I never saved it, that one was just a quickly thrown together version.

I've seen some people have chains that break when they had enough stress, but this kind of just spins around then explodes.

Same here, check out these, they made me laugh as soon as they loaded:

This one should win a design award or something:

What's great about that last one is if you go back after victory he continues to kick him while he's down.

Hehe. [Smile]

I love how this worked out on Full Up.

Wow, those are awesome. The fighting guys crack me up. I was up all night playing with this and I see it happening again tonight. I still can't get through the Tube, Back and Forth or the Unpossible. I've pretty much given up, and don't want to cheat and check someone else's. Now i'm redoing earlier levels. Here are my favorites:

Handling
Reach Up
The Wall
My favorite: Mind the Gap

Those are great. I really like the last two.

Want a bit of a hint for Tube? If so, keep reading...

I won't tell you what to do specifically, but there's basically only one type of solution. Everything I've seen is just a variation of the same technique.

There are multiple solutions, but most people appear to have used just one of them.
Another hint:

The piece count will not be very high. The solution is simple.

Right now I'm trying to use a catapult on Up the Stairs. It's tricky. Even trickier trying to go over the rocks.

Up the Stairs with Catapult

Yay! Took forever, kept hitting the rocks, but finally got it right. This is way more gratifying than it should be.

Edit: Nice Nighthawk. Much cleaner than mine.

Unpossible!

That took for freaking ever. And it completes a challenge on the forum to return the ball to the start position.

Now I guess I have to go back to the Tube. [Frown]
