    Here's my little level that includes the most 4 common (and stable) tricks in Mekorama.
    - Low Ceiling (block on top of B, he will walk over it)
    - Autopilot (while B walking, move the slider)
    - SSS (when B between the stair and the ground, tap)
    - SBS (works as SSS)

    I've found that a great way to build a level is to make some kind of solution first and then build the level around it.
    Essentially building the level backwards.

    1st Learn the simple tricks.. like Autopilot , low ceiling etc.. as @Zedket showed above..
    Then combine them:

    Claustrophobia+Autopilot
    Sbs+Side tap
    Etc ;)

    You can easily make hard levels without tricks .. by requiring very tight timing to achieve the win. But this is a lazy and bad thing to do!
    Don't do it if you want happy customers o_O.
    Also avoid relying too much on randomness, a little bit goes a very long way and can end up being irritating instead of exciting.

    Are you sure? I had fun with @meko's Timing Problem as just one example. :eek: But then again, the timing was the puzzle :)(and not some irritating part of an otherwise logic or adventure level). ;)

    It's a fine line indeed.
    Much wisdom is required.
    Happily the are more satisfying ways to make challenging levels than relying on timing alone, even if you don't know any tricks yet.
    In my opinion.
