For "At the checkout", the conveyor belt`s direction can be changed (before you start TEST) by clicking on the lower left corner of the box. It just toggles the direction back & forth.

I understand how to set everything up for "At the checkout" but don`t know how to reverse their direction. How do I do it?

For Pinball Wizard: 1 compressed spring next to current compressed string. Other spring to right of magnet. One switch to left of magnet and other switch to left of left side battery. Click on first switch to closed circuit position. Click on other switch to open circuit position. Hit TEST.

Fine, if you want it handfed:

[spoiler]For at the checkout, all you need to use is the conveyor belt and the battery. The green tiles are useless. Just place the conveyor belt at the bottom & to the left of the curve (toward the goal). You may have to change the direction of the conveyor tiles so they will go towards the goal. Once you have the battery connected to power the conveyor, the belt should launch the ball to the goal[/spoiler]

Marchare, the diagonal has to only reach the corner of generator.

Now, can anyone help us w/ `At the Checkout`. The one w/ all the rubber, and the only useable blocks are a battery, conveyor belts, and the green blocks.

"all of those extra levels are impossible to beat except the first one"

Not true. I have completed them all except `Pick and Mix.` I do think that to be impossible.

And by the way, it is perfectly possible to make an unbeatable level. You don`t have to prove to the game that it can be done before you finish making it, so I`m guessing Pick n Mix is unbeatable.

Almightybob1 is right in his reasoning about the final "Pick n Mix" Level. THERE is NO SOLUTION. The only way to get access to the exit is to use the two pieces provided to

1) Move the ball in the right direction and
2) Use the lens to melt the ice blocking the path

If these two pieces are used to "open the door" (necessary to complete the level), then the ball hits a bomb!.

Hence, paradox. I look forward to seeing a solution if someone is smart enough to figure it out! I predict (along with bob) that this is an impossible puzzle.

That`s what I was afraid of...but stranger things have happened - there might be a solution.

Reply
Male 4,290
I honestly can`t see one.
Reasoning:
[spoiler]The only place you can out the switch is between the battery and the fans, agreed?

Also, the only place you can put the mirror so that the light will hit the lens is the top right corner.

But the ball hits the bomb every time. There`s nothing to block it with because both pieces are needed.[/spoiler]

Now someone needs to post a solution to the extra level "Pick n Mix" seeing as it`s the only level I haven`t figured out =/

I preferred my explanation :P

I suppose there are several solutions since ours are both different.

Reflect Perfect:

[spoiler]

Imagine the spaces are grid references with letters going from left to right and numbers from top to bottom. EG the torch is at A6. Place mirrors as follows:

|_ F3
_
|/ I6

|_ L9

_
\| M3

Volcano
[spoiler]and for volcano place the 3 conveyors directly under the ball and place all diagniol conyers towards the steam generater so the generator coner is touching the last diagniol conveyer coner and it will conduct the electricty making everything work!:D:D:D[/spoiler]

I got up to the 9th Crafty level. It got easy after the first 3-5 levels, as the same train of thought was needed for most of the levels, it needed more variation in the level design.
