[Deadline: 27.10] Puzzle Level Contest - The Tricky Trinity!

by LordKofu
Hello and welcome to another LordKofu production!

As the first contest I held (The Joke level contest) was pretty successful and had three great entries, I will start my second contest now.

This time, it's about puzzles.
Generally, this contest is about anything that makes you think and put together different pieces to come to a definitive solution.
It can be a generic switch-ghost house kind of level or something even more creative. You pick the theme, as long as it makes our brains smoke, it's totally fine! :)

So, let's get to da rulez:

Rules and general tips:
  • Your level has to be sent to my PM inbox inside a zip file. The zip file only contains the level, a readme and the resources.
  • It is recommended (but not necessary) to put the solution of a puzzle in the readme if the level happens to be very hard or unpredictably random.
  • Any level theme is okay. To be honest, I'd rather like to see a level that has a lot of innovation and yet-unseen ideas than a generic ghost house switch puzzle. (that doesn't mean that a generic ghost house cannot be 1st place, but you got the idea.)
  • The level is due to the 20th of October, 2015, 12:59 pm.

Judges:
  • LordKofu
  • LordYoshi999
  • MECHDRAGON777
  • RudeGuy07

    Contestants:
    • Cosmik
    • MECHDRAGON777
    • Vitellaryjr2003
    • Frozen Boo
    • Iitchh
(bold: submitted)

Prize and aftermath:

There won't be a real prize, but the best three levels will be featured in a three-level-contest-exclusive minisode called "The Tricky Trinity" (because there simply cannot be enough alliterations).

Join as a contestant and a judge? Check. Just note that you won't be allowed to judge your own level ofc.

I'll join. Don't feel like judging for this one right now though. But if no one else ends up taking the place I might consider it.

I am considered the King of Puzzle levels after my CC11 level! So sure! I will judge and participate! If I get first, do not blame me! ...but Instead of the solution in the readme, can I put it in a Video? I can not make the video from an unanimous source though... There is no "Judges may not know who made what level" rule, So I am doing a video on it! Is there a length requirement? The puzzle in My cc11 level made it take an hour at minimum, but I could beat it under 10 minutes...

Added all of you.

@MD777

- You can make a video if you want.
- No, the judges are well aware of the creator of the level
- Make it as long or as short as you want; a short level can win for being clever as much as it can lose for being too short

Whoever said that sure doesn’t know the definition of a good puzzle.
Also, I want to be judge. I'd want to know what ideas the partecipants will get.

Added you. We have a lot of judges already, so I think that we should concentrate on making levels for now :P

Actually, you challenged me to the exact same thing one on one after you played and beat my CC11 level. If you made that challenge, you should have no issue coming it the top three. Good lucky either way!

For people that judge and particpate, can you provide a backup review!

What do you mean by that? We have enough judges to judge every level with multiple judges.

I will be cheated out of a review since I am a judge and a participant, so If I submit, then I will only get three reviews instead of four, and if a judge drops out, then that just limits the reviews!

I honestly think three reviews are enough.
Also, I can't force other users to judge. If there are volunteers, they can judge. If there aren't, I can't change jackshit about the face that you're only getting 3 reviews.
