      Redid the ending to eliminate the extreme shortcut that @Meko Guy found, which meant the hidden zapper could also be removed. Same logic until the last step, which requires some care (fair warning) ... thanks to all who played the original and hope you enjoy the redux. :thumbsup:

      Actually, I found that the less finesse you used on the last move, the better, otherwise B doesn't go far enough. Still a little iffy on the ball toss (for me), and I see that the knockable can only be hit from the stairs now.
    • Don G Rowe
      @D.S.Masters There are a couple of techniques for the ending now ...
      The most reliable is to move the slider next to the ball and have B stand on the ball. Then gently push the ball over the lip of the wedge and B rides it down into position to climb the stairs.
    • D.S.Masters
      @Don G Rowe Yep, that's one way - which I didn't use, of course; I let the ball fall where it should, then bumped B over. That ball toss would probably be a little more secure - if you don't slam the ball - if there was a wedge in the landing zone instead of flat land, but it worked.
      And technically...
      that's a trick, ball walking. Semantics, semantics...

      I was just going to rate the previous version and it disappeared!

      I could do the old one, :thumbsup::D! It worked fine for me. Can't finish this one though, :(! That last move just won't work for me. I tried the ways recommended in all the comments, but I can't get it! The ball goes flying, or the ball settles correctly and B sits stubbornly on the wedge.

      Is there any chance you can post a copy of the original too please? I've heard good things about it, but it seems I was a bit too slow getting here :unsure: Maybe just a card in this thread for comparison, if possible?

      @trids Here's the initial version

      Very nice, thanks :D
      I'm curious about the shortcut in the original though .. was that to autopilot onto the rail by moving the first draggable, then pushing B up the wedge onto the first stairs at the win?
      Cos that alone deserves another few ⭐⭐'s :sneaky:
      Were there any other alternative solutions?
    • Don G Rowe
      @trids Yeah basically. I had a zapper hidden underneath to block it. But @Meko Guy discovered that if you did the first move the intended way, then you could use the slider to toss B up on the stairs with high enough trajectory to avoid the hidden zapper. Fun times ... :rotf::rotf:
    • trids
      Well, well done :p .. i missed the zapper happily, luckily :sneaky:
      But all the wins were lots of fun, thanks!
    • D.S.Masters
      @Jom see the spoiler above from @Don G Rowe ... much easier than how I did it. ;)

      @D.S.Masters I tried that too! That's when the ball bounces out of play.
    • Jom
      @D.S.Masters I got there at last!! Finally, the high ball didn't roll too far at any of the crucial steps!!!
