  Yes, my last level is a not standard blockoban level. It's just what tke title says: IQ test or part of it. No targets and you may need a pen and paper. I have two more levels (one of them not very good) but I did not uploaded them because I wanted to see scores and reaction to my first one. In my opinion few controller levels will not be a problem. I remember two and they were well made levels, something different. I suggest for the future only the realy extraordinary and high quality controler levels to be accepted, thus keeping their number low but still not fully excluding them.

  If you really want to avoid alzheimer, you should try to optimise your score, I think you'll train your brain a lot with that. Solving is a thing, but improving is another thing. Although I think controller levels should be kept, I like those levels. Although 'IQ Test' is still testing me. :)

  Jim, while I understand what you're saying, yes they don't take the same skills we have been developing playing other blockoban levels, I think you are forgetting the point of us coming here. Blockoban should be, and I think has been for a lot of us, challenging our minds in new and creative ways. Games like this have been proven to lower the chances of getting alzheimer's and to help delay the symptoms of those who have it. For a player like me, the levels that force me into completely new ways of thinking, the ones where I stare at the screen for 10 minutes before moving a block, are the reason I keep playing this game. Sifting thru hundreds, now thousands, of useless puzzles that present no new challenge, trick, or innovation is annoying. The levels you are attacking in your comment are the levels we should be applauding. Yes, not everyone is going to be able to solve them because they require a certain level of intelligence. Note: I know you are talking about The_S's latest level, which I have stared at for a long time, and haven't solved either. Sometimes there's just levels that not everyone is going to be able to solve, and these are the best kind of levels, not the worst. (Note: There are levels no one should be able to solve as we have proven in the past, and these are the worst.)

  What do you mean by "controller"-levels? I'm not to good at Blockoban terminology :/
oldmtnguy 6 years ago
  This note is to all players out there. We have recently seen a few of the so-called "controller" levels submitted. I do not feel that these types of levels belong in the game because they are puzzles, but not true Blockoban puzzles as JP designed the game. I would appreciate your input on this, but your opinions do not need to be made publicly if you do not want them to. You can simply PM me and let me know how you feel. For the time being I will not approve any more of this type of level, and would prefer to delete those already in existence unless it is a consensus of the community that you want them included.


edit: Controller level is one that uses a separate box with blocks in a devised code that needs to be deciphered in order to determine the moves required to solve the puzzle. The puzzle usually involves multiply linked blocks in a random pattern.

  AK: I'm ahead, so it's up to you to pass me :)

If I remember correctly we're also placed 9th and 10th in ML, so we could have a little HSF there as well!

Manufan: Not at all bad! Congratz :)

  I must say I'm impressed that you in such a short period of time have climbed all the way up to the top 10! I'm still struggling to get into the top 50 :/

  I didn't talk about level flooding. I just find it great that you create many levels on many different games! :)
SuperMario 6 years ago
  Not at all, Treazer. I actually make push levels (I have like 15 in evaluation), P4M levels and JG2 levels. Also, I have a RT level that is 40% done, and I think I'll make a new level on Moonlights. I don't know about Puzzle It, I'll probably make levels in rare ocassions. I have an undone level in HP, and I think I won't finish it. I'll make a new level in BB2, but it's gonna be a speedy level because I didn't get a good idea for it. I won't make any CBCL level because I don't have any motivation. I have a Ringmania level in evaluation. Also, I am making a level in CDvZP because I don't like that game being very inactive, It's just very sad to see it like today. Everything I do here is, because I just want to see this site very active, and since I haven't completed a lot of levels these times, I win 5 EXP points for each accepted level, but actually I am not making levels for that. I make levels because I ENJOY making levels. I can probably make like 1000 levels here, or in another game, because I have fun making them. And I'm not talking only about levelflooding this game or the whole site.

  Wow, congrats bbdest! :D And I have to say, SuperMario, you and kiethy are the only people who make levels in every game regularly. I'm pretty proud of you both :D
SuperMario 6 years ago
  Yea, congratulations to him too!

P.S. I'll stop making BB levels for a while so I can spend more time making level on the other games.

  congratulations to our new archery master bbdest. this guy is incredible; archery master with only 57 levels solved.
Treazer 6 years ago
  Hehe, congrats! :P
SuperMario 6 years ago
  I'll probably get the 6000th level, because I've made 4 levels yesterday, and If none of them get rejected.

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.
