This is proof-of-concept for an automated cave-in generator, using obsidian creation as a start. See also this topic for the original idea.

Thoughts occur:
1. Cave in dust pushes creatures around.
2. Creatures that fall into a chasm are instantly destroyed.
3. Caved-in stone that falls into a chasm is removed from existance.

Thus, if a fairly narrow bridge is built over a chasm tile, and this machine is built on the side of the bridge (so the falling block is clear on all 4 sides) the machine will continually generate dust, and always push off anything that crosses it; even demons, since they are not immune to dust knock-outs. Assuming the bridge was built insanely close to the bottom of the chasm, even demons wouldn't have enough time to snap out of the KO and save their asses by flying.

[edit - and as a note, the obsidian block that was formed in the last frame probably didn't drop because you probably didn't dig out the ceiling; and thus the block attached itself to it]

Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
