  Well, the specific thing that tricked me (and Brian) up is the robot on the bottom-right; if you kill him (on the broken bot) or trap him somewhere other than that specific spot, then he won't go through the teleporter when it appears later, and then you're screwed. Maybe if there were a panel in that spot to make sure he was there before moving on...

  hi, funny, I was thinking that those robots should behave "constructively" as long as you walk the straight way and operate the switches that you find on the way. but well, i know the solution, so it's hard to imagine what other ideas people might have. (I also don't think there are switches that affect later phases of the level, at least I tried to avoid that.)

  This was pretty good, actually. My only complaint is that it can be really hard (in a bad way) if you forget to do something early on, since the puzzles sort of arise from careful timing of bots, and that's not something that you can really predict without opening up the level editor and looking at which panels trigger which teleports, etc.

Nice, pretty rigid level. I was stuck at the southeast part for a while.

  Man, I disagree... I'm stuck at the right middle (red sphere) with apparently nothing to do. I hope I didn't "forget" to do something early in the level, because there's a lot of panels with no apparent purpose.
