      Thanks to everyone who found the shortcut in the first version. The things you don't see...
      the draggable at the bottom of the ball ramp - flat for the first ball, round for the 2nd
      Incorporating elements found in levels of other builders, including (but not limited to) @Star Penguin (the R bot win move), @Don G Rowe (freezing P for the ball drop), @vince (the up and down ball), and @Chuckthulhu (the opening move).

      Fun level :thumbsup:

      @D.S.Masters - I can't push the ball to release P?

      EDIT - cancel last - was doing it wrong...

      Same fun route as before, :D:rotf::D! I still don't like the first move, :(;), but the rest is great, especially the football bit, :rotf::rotf:. Love it!!
    • D.S.Masters
      @Meko Guy I got that from the level "Across the Moat" by @vince - put B at the top of the stairs near that ball, and when the ball starts to come up, tap the space just beyond it, and B will not only hit the ball, but he'll try to ride it as well.

      @Jom Which first move - the autopilot at the beginning?

      @D.S.Masters Yes, maybe I am not doing it right. I did think it's a bit of a delicate manoeuvre and not very Bullwinkle, ;):D!
      [I am tapping the rotor and turning it to get B to clamber up so he can get onto the slider near R. It is not easy and B keeps toppling off the rotating section as he is autopiloting up. Is that a word, autopiloting, :rotf::eek::confused:!]

      Enjoy this one. Shortcut is gone. 4 stars for gameplay and 1 star for clean design.
    • D.S.Masters
      @Jom It just requires a bit of speed (which I'm usually not good at) - tap the motor, and immediately rotate the piece. It would probably help if B had a little more distance to get there, but I was running out of room. ;):thumbsup:
      'Autopiloting'... I think that needs to be added to the Meko dictionary. :p:rolleyes::)

      @D.S.Masters I tried turning it quickly and kept overrotating which was causing a lot of falling off. I can get it about half the time by turning slowly, :D:D.
    • D.S.Masters
      @Jom Yeah, some kind of stopper underneath might have helped. I was more worried about B falling off if he got there before it was fully rotated, but that didn't turn out to be a problem.

      Liked this one a lot, even with the AP tricks. ;)
      Unfortunately, freezing P isn't necessary to get the balls into the right wells. The square slider block on the slider underneath the lower wedge lets the ball travel over the rail to the far one. Sliding it over, the round block lets the second ball fall in the near well that leads to the win. :(
    • D.S.Masters
      @Don G Rowe Freezing P means that the ball won't hit either wedge - without P, and even with the round block, sometimes the 2nd ball skips its appropriate spot, so P helps ensure proper placement.
