Okay, think of a number. Now, scratch that number and think of 0. You're thinking of zero, right? FrEaKy

Nice puzzle. I thought of two ways to solve it -- this way: degugyf and this way: puvozog.

New one:

One to Three: dagivoz

I couldn't really figure out how to solve it on my own so I'm not 100% positive it's possible. But I'm sure it is since there's so many other levels like it.

This one was also fun to solve. imageI tested inputs in the sandbox to find the output pattern. For One to Three: vyxamod.

EDIT: Nicely done, Bucky. I didn't see the forest for the trees.

Out of the Box:ganasaf or hyseval
Out of three: demudov  imageAdding A mod16 isn't a very secure form of encryption.

That is the most ingenious method of solving an impossible puzzle that I have ever seen.

Sorry about that, these are the first levels I've ever created. So, I mean,I'll try to make them as good as I can. Smiley

Anyway, new one, hope it's better:

More than meets the eye: losodib

Nice puzzles, Sly.

Out of the Box (cocotun): caguvof
One to Three (dagivoz): cevevig
More than meets the Eye (losodib): gyvoduv  --  imageProbably not what you expected; leaving space open is risky business...

Wow, that's impressive that everyone got it that fast. However, the solutions you guys put out are why the level's called more than meets the eye.

Now I got a follow up that has less 'open space' Smiley

What you see is what you get: pevezux

EDIT: I made another one that's super easy, there are actually two ways of solving it, just one way's better than the other:

There When You Need it: syvopos

EDIT: Ummm... New one already

Gates of Fire: jefokis

For There When You Need It: cepiham.

In pevezux, the random crate generates two unrelated values. You could drop the crate one tick before pushing it left. Also, the hash function does not produce unique values. Compare for solution crates 6 and C, 7 and E.

Gates of Fire: figudam.  The top-center device is one featured in a dream I had a while ago.  When I checked it upon waking, I was surprised to find that it actually worked.
There when you need it: zidemyf.  Nothing here that wasn't in jf's solution.

Here is a first attempt at What You See is What You Get (bocares): badagex
It necessarily fails on 6 and 7, however, because the randomizer in the puzzle does not produce unique numbers  Angry

For Gates of Fire (jefokis): vazyhyp

My There when you need it solution was exactly the same as Bucky's, so there is no need to post it.

You actually dream about Rubicon, Bucky?

For Gates of Fire 2 sumaxag, I set for myself a challenge to refrain from using any dozers. I also wanted to use imagea single unbroken chain of gates winding through from start to finish but the puzzle layout does not accomodate it, so I had to improvise in two places to maintain continuity. Voila: vabokof.
