Wow, awesome to see all the new creations! Trinity Silver, your first few levels were damn hard, so I'm excited to see what you've got in store with all the new ones.

Here's one that got emailed to me, pretty cool, so I thought I'd post it here for you all to try:

Code: Select all

I haven't quite been able to beat it yet. It's tough, but pretty reasonable.

Got any more room? The contest's over, but since people are still submitting some...

Magic math weirdness. You can win if the button is hit, but try not to.

Wow, okay boys and girls, it looks like we've got some great submissions! Well done, one and all! I've sent the levels off for some independent judging (in a very serious way, of course, we've locked them in briefcases and handcuffed them to expendable secret agents).

Feel free to keep sharing and swapping levels (especially in this thread) - but the Bond Builder Contest is now officially closed.

I love seeing all these coming in! I decided to post all the levels you made (that made it in before the contest cut-off) up in the game, so we can all check them out easier. It's not on Newgrounds yet, but you can find a version of the game with it here:

http://www.testtubegames.com/bondbreaker.html

Just follow the helpful arrow to see user-made levels. They are organized by difficulty, ranging from Easy to Ultrahard (I'm looking at you, TrinitySilver!) Have fun playing around with each other's levels a bit more easily. And we'll try to get the newer levels up shortly.

We're in the process of deciding on the contest winners -- it's been a lot of fun to play through all of them. Thank you all for sharing such creative stuff with us!

Prison Break (Group) was the easiest of the five stars!
After a few tries I went through it swimmingly.

I... I... I don't even...

One of the scientists at CaSTL told me he thought thought Prison Break was easier than Puzzle 3. WHAAAT? I did, after many tries, *almost* beat Prison Break. But I haven't made it yet.

So yes, the ratings are pretty subjective, I suppose!

Some thoughts I wrote a few days ago:
I JUST BEAT FIGHT THE MASSES WITHOUT TOUCHING THE CONTROLS
WOOOOOOOOAH
I mean, I always expected the buttons to all activate, but thought that winning the level would take too long. Turns out it's possible!
---
Also fighting against the drugs is totally possible - just
Spoiler: show
keep to the non-colored squares, and go down-left.

---
Beat Pinky Promises, though the first part was mainly glitchy luck.


More musings:

Life Metaphor:
Spoiler: show
Easiest run is when the electron gun gives you two muons. (Bond with the atom after one.) You can easily pull the outer atom down.

Remote Control Again?!:
Spoiler: show
I'm not sure if this is the intended solution, but you can run inside the goal-cave-area really fast once you get an electron, and get some of the protons out until you can get to the star. Seems like it doesn't utilize the mechanism thingy on the top-right.

A-maze-ing:
That was a quite an interesting puzzle.
Spoiler: show
Watch your timing? Oh, ok, that electron gun. Got it.

Spoiler: show
K, got the lasers and bonded to the atom. Hit the buttons, now what? The thing inside the tunnel is neutral and too large.

Spoiler: show
I literally did an experiment with the level editor at this part to verify what I was doing. Turns out that this level and my Lottery use similar mechanisms, which itself was surprisingly isotropic.
Not realistic, but awesomely creative.

Prison break:
Spoiler: show
Not actually hard if you know what you're doing, but sometimes the atoms you're supposed to use don't come out of their rows ("cells"?). I agree with the CaSTL guy, but it's not that easy. Anything with a lot of chaotic atoms should be at least 4p. Hard to stay where you want (off the spikes).

I've beaten the entire first page, and pretty much the second (just missing a few of the later ones). Of the 5p, Glitch and Into the Abyss I have yet to beat. I need to hit the button? I don't know how to reach it.

Random thought. Some of these levels are definitely puzzle levels (Doing it right, A-maze-ing), while some are skill (Survival, Fight the Masses). Some are both (Fighting against the Drugs? Has both a "what do I do" and "how do I do it" part. Also definitely Poolest Level.). So how about some labels/tags for the levels, Puzzle, Skill, Both, in addition to difficulty?
Edit: Or even something like Fighting against the Drugs is 2p puzzle, 5p skill, Poolest Level is 4p puzzle, 2p skill. A-maze-ing 5p puzzle, 2p skill. (not necessarily correct, but close.) But this gets complicated, so a Puzzle/Skill/Both focus might be easier/better.
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!
