      - elevated zapper (an elevated zapper will change the properties of the block above to passable)
      - auto pilot (tap on zapper and move zapper to redirect B)
      - elevated eye (an elevated eye will change the properties of the block above to not passable)
      - auto pilot (tap and move slider to redirect B)

      Nice variety of moves. My win was almost he same but I thought B would fall through the crossing (if an autopilot)before the final move, so i let B simply walk across Z-on-tiptoe which went well .

      how long it took for u to make a level?
      just an hour or even less???
    • Meko Guy
      @Ray Aznable - More than 1 hour even for a small one. Most levels take around 4 hours to build but after that I test it each day and if something doesn't work well or I get stuck and forces a restart, etc closer to the end, then I change it. My rule is, if I don't get the move within 3 attempts (every time) then it's changed to be easier. After I'm happy with the level and put it in the que and about 5 days before posting, I start playing it again. Sometimes I find a shortcut as it's been over 1 month since I was happy with it. So back to the drawing board again. Many hours are required for each level.

      asking permission to take screenshoot of what u said bro.

      anyway

      do u write down the notes of steps or make a sketch first on paper about the concept of the map ?
      or do u imagine all in ur mind?
      cuz ur levels have quite unusual shape/form steps of where B should to go. like after walking on a flat metal then walk on the wedges with autopilot and so on, etc

      im not wrong, asking like this in this comment section am I?
    • Meko Guy
      @Ray Aznable - For sure you can take a screenshot. To answer your questions, the answer is Yes. I do all of that.

      Mainly, I get an idea and I built just that step like above - B passes stairs thanks to Z. Later, I get another step like above, B will auto pilot onto a wedge so I built that in another level. After I get 4 or 5 ideas built, these ideas were imagined and/or drawn out on paper I try to piece them all together. Sometimes, they don't work so I built 4 or 5 more ideas and see if they join better and eventually I have a well integrated level with 4 or 5 moves.

      Sometimes, I'm looking for a ball level, or all logic steps so that starts out with a sequence of steps written. For example, B drops ball to free P. B gets on P and moves to next section where, P drops ball and passes over B and they both move to the next section.

      Normally, if I have a full level idea in my head, that doesn't work and many levels are trashed or broken up into smaller ones.
