What I like about this game is that each puzzle can have so many different solutions. I looked through a lot of the posts on the form, and rarely saw a solution that replicated the way I had done it.

I spent ages trying solve the very last level (Unpossible) with a good and proper trebuchet, but it turned out that the weight needed to make it work was too much for the physics system. Oh well.

This was my (wip) attempt to solve Unpossible with a trebuchet:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=35358

If it collapses when you start it, just start it again until it works. You can see that the idea will work if the weight is heavy enough, but even at twice the current weight it's still not quite heavy enough, and at around that point it doesn't save correctly.

Here was an earlier solution:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=27730

A couple of On A Roll:

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=28008
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=27155

And back to the medieval approaches:

notic: that's a great little solution to Handling. It uses few pieces, and solves it in a fun way.

My Handling solution was less fun:

That one has a sense of life about it, like it's a bull headbutting the thing into place.
