That's pretty cool! I'm stuck in the 2nd level though. I fell off the big wheel (nice physics there, BTW) and now there's no way to get to the door. If I go back, I hit an invisible barrier.

Also, going into fullscreen mode in the 2nd level throws you back to the first level.

I really liked this one! Yes it has quite a few bugs, but the concept is very original.

If I put the box right in front of the door, and take a run at it from the striped circle, I still can't get to the box in time.

Also, since the character is a tank, is it possible to shoot?

Keith: Good physics, lack of bugs. However, very little graphical and auditory polish.

Jorje: Excellent gameplay! Keep developing this. The music was perfect.

Unknown: With more variety and more levels, this could definitely be a game worth playing (though it's worth playing as it is). Oh, and I'm seeing extra doors on the second round of levels.

I have no personal favorite.

Andrew, you put the box on the circle and then the door stays open so the tank can go through. The objective is to get the tank to the other circle.

I agree. You'd have to do some pretty serious hair-splitting to declare a clear winner here IMHO. Looks like a pretty solid four-way tie if I've ever seen one. I'm good for debate though. Smile

I think the best thing about these is the idea of no winners. I would have entered but I went all day to an Illinois football game. Fun stuff! Congratulations to all! They're all good.

That competition was so fun, and we got some good stuff at the end.
Im just dissapointed that some failed, Wheres the Arm and Crane in Unity, wheres the Rope physics one..
I really hope you guys finish those because I was really looking forward to playing it.

I think Keith's sidescroller was the most mechanical, most complicated levels and good difficulty level and Im really impressed that it appeared in 24 hours.
Whizbang was really fun once I got the hang of it, its a great fun throwing yourself about and grabbing on to the walls, I really enjoy playing that.
Mechanical Job I so fun too but im going to play it more because im not very good, my best score is 888. It looks buggy when you dont know how to play but once you know what to do Its actually really great.

Uploaded the source code

Ive left in the commented out code that used to make this work, before lua. This is BAD code, thats why its not being used.
