Jacob's Ladder

B needs to get to the belfry. Take the scenic route! Ramp designed based on Ramp Climbing by @RichardFu. Thanks, @Don g Rowe, for putting up with me. And for your time, suggestions and most valuable kindness. Another winner from yours truly (hmmmm)...hope you enjoy it!

      The level was pretty linear but I added a star for the design. Thanks for sharing.

      @gmacpro Thanks, GMAC! I'm gladv you add a star for design, that's really what i do best. And I'm pretty linear myself!

      Thanks for the fantastic five (sounds like a good name for a rock group!)!

      @delator77 Thanks, delator! I had a great time designing it, and I'm glad you enjoyed playing. (Still aiming for more complexity and outright sneakiness, but I'm not quite there!)

      I appreciate the terrific rating too!.

      @Black1226 I KNOW that you have the capacity to do GREAT CHALLENGING LEVELS!!:sneaky:Keep it up my friend:rolleyes:

      @delator77
      Do you REALLY think so? Seriously, really? I'm trying, but I slip back into simople.. I've been studying and studying older levels that fascinate me. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong levels. Have you seen any improvement n that area, at all? I wanna get better, I really do!.

      Thanks, that's a real compliment!

      I think it's just a matter of adding difficulty because at the design level you're very good:D ... You know, some zappers around here:mad:, steps with precise timing:sneaky:, steps that include exploits but contextualized to avoid shortcuts:eek: ... I'm telling you as a player because I do not know how to create levels and I can not advise you on that:cry: ... but as a Meko-Addict I know what I like and I think you can please me:rolleyes:

      @delator77
      Well, I aim to please! I didn't know you didn't create levels! You oughta try it, its great fun! I will see what I can come up with to please your obviously twisted mind! :rotf: :rotf:

      Seriously.

      Easy to figure out, but the herding wasn't easy for me (it never is). Nice design, but I managed to 'toss' B off the level with that climb... oops. Not a problem, though.
      A ramp climb like that is easier if you use a draggable rather than a mechanism, but in this case you made that mechanism long enough and the distance up to the bottom of the ramp short enough that it worked beautifully... then after he knocked the ball, B continued to climb and ended up jumping off the level.

      @D.S.Masters I'm glad you had fun with it, DS. Herding is difficult in small spaces, but if you let it run and watch where R goes, its becomes pretty easy.

      You know, that bucket ride to the win is inadvertantly hilarious - I just wanted the ball to take that ride, but at least half the time, B managed to get into the action one way or the other, mostly standing on the tip of the rail farthest from the top of the ramp. Both tiny yellow feet crossed on the TIP of that perpendicular rail! And rode all the way until he either hit the steeple and fell, or went behind the ball on in. I don't think he ever walked onto the win, but I'm not sure. Funny!! He also went on top of the ball, and as you experienced, fell off heroically. I love it!!

      Thanks for the great rating, and I'm glad you had fun playing itl
