(As a result, I restarted the first half about 20 times. Then when I realized I felt like ragequitting...I toned it down just a bit.) And before calling it finished, I made myself go through the level completely. So no matter what section you're in, there is a solution.

I felt this was relatively easy, but probably because I've played this game too much.
How I beat it:
Spoiler: show
1. Open gate at the right time (after a wave has hit the wall). The phase of the spikes don't matter that much, though it may be a bit hard in some cases.
2. Go down. (a bit - only until you don't touch the spikes)
3. Get past the atom when the spikes to the right are hidden.
4. Get a muon. Bond to the H+, and get another one. (Do not involve any electrons in this)
5. Win!

I didn't need
Spoiler: show
to go through the area to the right though. Was this intentional?


Here's Path, a level from somewhere around October:

Code: Select all

The protip is quite helpful, especially on levels like Glitch, Fight the Masses, and even Muon Dodgy. I use it for almost all the levels, actually.

$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!

Well, you found another shortcut, Random! I made those spikes near the lone proton move because I thought the level might be too hard otherwise. I forgot that doing so left you an easy back door. So...that's why you found it easy. Try it now- I've closed that loophole and updated the link. I also made some refinements. (You know that stationary atom above the muon cannon? Well, that empty block to its right was an artifact of a previous design. So one of the things I did was remove it.)
P.S. Could you remove the link from your quote? I'd like to make the old version as inaccessible as possible.
Edit: Tried out Path. Nice level. Not too hard.

Just take things slowly and carefully, and don't try hitting the switch yourself.

Black hole was missing a star. Was that on purpose? I *am* glad I fixed one of the common bugs in the game - where molecules would pick up 4, 5, 6... etc electrons. Eventually they'd get really buggy -- but it only was a problem when the molecules were confined and couldn't split apart. Not a problem in the official game, since I just never made a level where that could happen. But now that there's a level editor... had to fix it. (Solution? Limit to 3 electrons, easy!)

Poolest Level - WHAAAA, I swear I tried that method a bajillion times. But the moment I read the spoiler, I was able to solve the level. Weird how a bit of confidence in a method can make all the difference, I guess. Whew, that feels good. Thanks, Random!

A level of my own: Zig-Zag

Code: Select all

A version of my own "Zigzag" with less of a need to zig and zag:

Code: Select all

Simple: Run through the electrons. Who cares if you get hit? You have 2 purple powerups at the other side. Hit the button, come back, use the other two, and get da star! :twisted: :twisted:

Haha, that does certainly make that level easier!

In other news I went back to try the original... wow is that hard. I think I much prefer your version.
