  And they have to be small, even harder to make! :O

  Actually some of your kids levels are very good too Gary (I love Plinko (BLockoban)).

It's not easy to design kids levels, they must be simple, but with a small challenge accessible to kids.

  Or Archery is both a good example for a kids levels

Jp, Tell me if some of my level are too hard ;)
pauloalex 9 years ago
  ok, you want very very simple levels.
jp 9 years ago
  @Gary @gameinsky @pauloalex , you designed great new levels, but I think they are too difficult for kids. This is a good example of a kid level : Open The Road (BLockoban) & Turn around (BLockoban)

  I did my contribution for new category.
jp 9 years ago
  I've created the Kids category. The kids levels must be very easy (maybe with only one smal difficulty on some levels), and very small, max 9x9.


I've spent the whole afternoon playing (not completing!) ALL levels with a rating over 3/5 to check if they are too big or not. There are about 160 big levels (over 17x15). I will provide the levels in a BigMaps category on the iPhone but I will not modify them here.


Let me know if some of my modifications to descrease the size of some levels, have corrupted something (score, not possible anymore).

  Indeed, jp edited one of cheese9's levels. So, he was really a liar. cheese9 is offline for a long time!

And also, I am making 35 Kids levels.
gameinsky 9 years ago
  No, he saw an updated level of cheese9 and tought it was his newest one.

  Was Jyxz was really a liar?
gameinsky 9 years ago
  What made you say that ?
he isn't...

oh, order significance has been updated by JP.
gameinsky 9 years ago
  I will start dooing some kid diffyculty levels! :D

  When I say "discard", I mean only for the iPhone version, the big levels will not be removed from here.

@gundu, I will try to do it myself at first but I will let you know if I need some help.

[edit] Actually after checking about 50 levels, there is not a lot where we can decrease the size, only the very first levels we had designed, but for the later levels, we were aware of this matter.

  Hoho, looks like my constant work of shrinking down levels has finally paid off ^_^
Btw before you make yet another port can you move official level 4 back some places???
gundu 9 years ago
  I can help you for this

so I must do some level here?
or...? something else?
jp 9 years ago
  Don't worry if you see some old BLockoban levels on the homepage, I'm updating some of the levels for the iPhone version of BLockoban. The levels on the iPhone version must be as small as possible, so I will make smaller those where it's possible, and discard all levels that are too big.

I also want to create a new category for kids with very small and very easy maps.

  é isso aí nani! parabéns!! só faltava mesmo você!!!

jp 9 years ago

  Paulo, I have spent the majority of my playing time enjoying all the new levels. It seems the levels keep getting better and better which is a testament to the creators. I enjoy the comments very much and I like to *play games* with some levels. Did you know that all the blocks in Bottle level require 2 moves or less? The trick is in how it is done.
pauloalex 9 years ago
  the secret of archery is to take the blue block of the center with the help of the white block.

@beckenheimer, start at the end is easy. very insistence you can make it
oldmanrob 9 years ago
  Yahoo! 40 perfect solved easy levels.

Edit: Now! (I hope.)
oldmanrob 9 years ago
  Archery is still a big enigma for me. As a Swiss guy crossbow would be easier probably.
Innerfire, The Circle and Passion are unsolved. And Systematic II drives me crazy. Can't read the coordinates. I think it's about lines and columns. But where is first?
beckenheimer 9 years ago
  From the official levels for me its "start at the end".
I have no idea to get it so long. shit happens...
pauloalex 9 years ago
  why you can not to do archery, boogiebee?
boogiebee 9 years ago
  For me it is 180 Degree Turn, Inner Fire, and Archery. I solved 180 Degree Turn with a terrible score and haven't done anything with it since.

P.S. On official levels, I lack only Archery.
gameinsky 9 years ago
  digittank got the best BL rating ever!

boogiebee finished it in 90 moves
Jyxz 9 years ago
  boogiebee missing quad transfer i believe

  sound on / off added (burfy's feedback).
16 official levels now. All levels are great. I must say I'm a big fan of Psychotronic's levels (thx Psycho). When a level is "only" accepted, it doesn't mean it will not be official one day, it's just I'm not sure for now.
