Under rating threshold (show) I love this game. It stomped on my preconception that I had half-decent logical reasoning skills. Every time I look at a puzzle, I think; "Oh, that's easy!" And then half an hour later, I'm staring at the same puzzle, thinking, "Well, if I try THIS approach, I'm SURE it will work!"

Under rating threshold (show) Is this really what you're supposed to build in the 3RD FREAKING LEVEL? ?lvl=3&code=p12:5f3;p13:5f1;c11:5f0;c10:5f3;c14:5f3;c14:7f0;i13:7f6;c12:7f0;c11:7f0;p10:8f3;p11:8f1;c10:7f3;c9:8f3;c9:9f3;c9:10f2;c10:10f2;c11:10f1;c11:9f2;c12:9f2;c12:8f3;p15:8f0;p15:9f2;i13:9f7;c14:9f2;c15:7f1;c15:6f0;c9:7f3;c10:6f3;i14:6f1;c13:6f3;c13:8f3;c13:10f0;c14:10f0;c15:10f0;

Under rating threshold (show) Great game ! I love the way you have to think of a program that works by the way you place objects on the grid. Hardwired system in a way. The only thing I find disturbing is that the conditions are not always described very cleary, such as an empty string being valid for most of the tests.

Under rating threshold (show) "Your machine ran for so long that the malevolence engine ran out of patience. You completed the problem assigned... But you can do better than this. Your very most disappointing test was 'rbrbrbrbrbrb', at 202 time units." Tough luck. I passed, and that's all that matters! Although I understand the patience problem: if the malevolence engine is always correct in this regard, it would have solved the halting problem! My machine was ?lvl=18&code=g12:3f3;c10:7f1;c10:8f1;c10:9f1;p10:10f4;b10:11f1;c11:7f3;c11:8f3;c11:9f3;c11:10f0;i12:6f1;p12:7f3;g12:8f3;q12:9f6;p12:10f3;c12:11f3;c13:7f3;c13:8f3;c13:9f3;c13:10f2;c14:7f1;c14:8f1;c14:9f1;p14:10f6;r14:11f1;c12:4f3;c12:5f3;c13:6f0;c14:6f0;p10:4f1;c10:5f1;c10:6f1;c11:6f0;r9:4f2;b11:4f0;q10:3f5;c11:3f2;

Under rating threshold (show) Let's see... we can do addition, parity testing, possibly logic gates... I think this game is possibly Turing-complete.

Under rating threshold (show) I like how I made a big huge U of B/R branches on the robo-children level that runs in O(1) time, and the malevolence engine says "I see what you did there" and considers me a cheater. It runs in constant time, so I don't care that it couldn't handle strings longer than the perimeter of the workspace :-P

Under rating threshold (show) the instructions get really esoteric in the later levels, I wouldn't have assumed that 1 was a power of 4. the teachers level makes no sense. accept XBXR but for some reason BRB should be accepted... I'm not getting it.

Under rating threshold (show) The gray bar with the 4-colors is the "dot writer." If that's all you see, your machine rejects the empty string, and most cases should accept the empty string.

Under rating threshold (show) Er, probably need more information. Whenever I try and test the machine, the robot that comes through has no tape. Instead it is a gray bar with a weird 4 colour symbol at the front, and the machine just rejects it and says I failed the level.

Under rating threshold (show) Is there a fast solution to any level? In some of them I get "THE MALEVOLENCE ENGINE IS OUT OF PATIENCE" (I mean, TLE), but when I run the test cases, they work and it says something like "the engine had given up on you, this works, but you can do better". Am I an awful person, or this happens to you too?

Under rating threshold (show) pedmacedo I can only assume from what you've said that the mistake you've made is rectified by this: You are not supposed to accept robots with X blue then X red, you are really supposed to accept robots which STARTED with X blue then X red BEFORE you do anything to them.

Under rating threshold (show) Wonderful game but it has a fatal flaw. When I am told to put Y in the beginning and X in the end without using the "ONLY" logical operator, there is no justification to fail my machine when it erases everything on the tape and puts the required elements in their respective places.

Under rating threshold (show) great game, but the level goals are not always clear: "the input, but with the last symbol moved to the front" (Robomecha) means something different than "reverse order". took me some time to notice that i just got the goal wrong... otherwise this is a really great game!!

Under rating threshold (show) Sure I know it's a part of the game, but not the one I enjoy the most, and not the most important one. I just want one more space in each direction to avoid situations when I spend 15 mins to be able to fit in one more writer (metatron...)

Under rating threshold (show) buzz_killington1 said : "The game could use more space imho. I have the algorithm figured out,but im very bad at the layout of elements" ; In fact the putting your algo in an optimized sagittal form is part of the game, but I agree that an "infinite board" mode would be fun to toy around with and convenient for tests.

Under rating threshold (show) The game could use more space imho. I have the algorithm figured out,but im very bad at the layout of elements, so more than half parts is usually conveyours for me, and i spend ages trying to connect all the parts properly. one more square on both axes would fix it for me :)
