Maybe if you hit the "sound" button at the lower right, oog. ;)

Hooray for FFF.

The interaction between the different parts is fun. I spent a lot more time on this than I would have thought, at first glance.

I can't get more that about 11,000.
Arghhhh.

I've got up to 13700 but am stuck with one piece only getting to lvl 4 even when used early, while the others are at max. A captivating post seanyboy.

I just got 12,200 but I haven't managed to get the robot to activate no matter what combination I've used..

On preview:

hmm... bettered during lunch

this is great...! i've got 12,000 on the first "level"... when you go forward is there a chance you will kill your planet...? i'm feeling destructive this morning, heh.

8,800 - got the robot to activate, but I still can't figure out what's up with the egg-creature, bubble-blower, or orange thing

oh, it doesn't go forward. not so great, hmmph.

I know a sequence (supposedly there are several) to get to 20,000 if people want it.

arrggh

Yes. My lunch break is nearly over and I can't beat 13,000

Please give sequence before brain explodes....

Guys go to waxy.org/links to find the solution.

13,500 - unfortunately I made a single misstep (placed the ladder one position too late) and the robot is on the final step before activation.
posted by Ryvar at 6:18 AM on February 20, 2004


I forgot to mention it's from Feb 14th.

The solution is cool, but it's also fun to just play around with different orders. I had a lava flow going at one point, but it'd be nice to have more than one scenario. Still, who am I to bitch? I should be working. Thanks seanyboy!

Try destroying the propeller with the tornado before releasing the bubbles from the pipe.

Got it. 20,000.

Various solutions work.

waxy.org says this: (cube, ladder, egg, ball, mountain, pipe, propeller, wind, gear, dish, rocket, tv).

I did this: (ladder, cube, egg, ball, mountain, propeller, pipe, gear, dish, rocket, TV)

BirdDOg, you are missing the wind in your solution.

I like the Alien who shows up and electrifies things but I can't get him to do much else.

Go Volcano!

cube, pipe, ball, ladder, egg, mountain, fan, gear, wind, dish, rocket, tv

That combination worked for me.

I got the tv to flash twelve different "scenes". There are twelve pieces to the puzzle. Is that a hint as to what order they should go in? Should I post the scenes?

Or you could just do what essexjan did. :-)
