Reach Up
Level Screenshot.
Previous level: Rolling Away
Next level: Mind The Gap

Reach Up is the second free level. A hint suggesting the use of triangles is provided in the form of a 2 wheeled 3 rod buggy. Most designs delete this and start from just the goal object. The right end of the ground is a slightly oversized circle resulting in a ground bump; this may be useful for certain unpowered designs which require a wheel to go and then come back. Internally, its level ID is 55. Play.
