    I noticed a nice-looking little level the other day, Never by @IWentTooFast. I really appreciate a good Escher-esque design (here's another). This one, intended or not, had some moves that are rather... unloved. But that gave me an idea, to make the unloved more lovable?

    Last week I happened to catch an impressive level by @Rizal called Sinubing (no longer in the forum, but solution here). The great church design caught my eye, then the working elevator got me playing. But there are some very hidden parts and a couple pretty risky moves. I thought I'd try to make it more playable for less-than-experts, and then I added one little move at the end to give B some more excitement.

    Yes i thought the original was great. Despite messing up the clever autopilot first time around, i was still able to win by getting B back onto the back to back metal stairs. Did it on first attempt and maybe it was a ToA move.
    Playing your revised level I didn’t see any obvious differences apart from the need to form a stack at the end. Maybe because i knew the gameplay, I didn’t see it as any easier. I still enjoyed the fancy autopilot again.

    Well,I played & completed your version...Uuuhhmm,I can see some changes...I saw your movie & we have one difference...To push the last ball I used my previous gameplay,I mean,an autopilot...your way,changing blocks and putting stairs is more easier but as I didn't notice it,I tried the previous & ouuhh yeah....it worked:) So here is my question...is my autopilot the intended?I say this cause in the previous version I always get zapped :mad:& I thought that my gameplay was wrong...I don't know what to think:unsure:

    Yes, that autopilot was one I thought was too tricky and risky. You don't need to do it that way in my version (but you still can, if you want). My intended way is easier.

    Last week I saw this nice little level by @Fendi, Namlea. Very good looking, with a fun mechanism. Several players commented that it was a little easy, so I thought I'd try adding a few tricks (and take out the way to pause R) to make it a bit more challenging.

    I posted this @Block builder level before, but I made some more tweaks and the steaming hot tub is really fabulous now. The original is called Five-win villa. It's a really attractive little villa, with the great idea of having five different wins. So there's five mini puzzles in one level. (I think Block builder was ahead of his time with this. Now, with the update, he could have used stars to get pretty much the same experience.) I had a few ideas about how to make some of the wins a little more challenging, and one a little easier. And now it's got a hot tub!

    Looks like version 1.4.5 has been released. There's been some changes to improve the stability of Rs, when walking over moving pieces. That's good, except it breaks some levels that made use of those instabilities. One classic one is Dagobah by @vince. Great design and story, and amazing use of the "force." But unfortunately R2's part doesn't work with the recent update. So I did my best to update the level so we can keep enjoying it:
