Contest: Careful Climbing

This contest has ended. Thank you for all your great entries. Please check out the winners and highlighted entries below!

Welcome to the 16th official Principia Building Contest!

Following up on the two very popular contests Platform Climbing and Vertical Climbing, the topic of the week is to create a machine that climbs vertically downwards. The layout of the level and how the machine climbs it is completely up to you. It can range from climbing between two walls, to climbing by grabbing tiny platforms, but the direction must be downwards. This time, gravity can be your help, perhaps the machine can swing itself between platforms, or just make perfect jumps between platforms.

You have until next Thursday (June 5th)! Good luck! The winner recevies a Golden Trophy and the runner up gets a Silver Trophy!


Gravity can't be changed.

The level must be custom.

No old levels or derivatives.

Do not abuse the Stabilizer object!

Too many rockets/thrusters and we might consider it cheating ;)
