Holy crap. That is fun. Level 15 so far.

How do you get past 15?

Wait... I know what will do it, put the vehicle right past the center and bounce it at a high angle to the upper right, it will get all three, hit the wall and come back to get the other three.

I crapped out at Level 30. Good stuff, crunch.

32 is a square bitch... still trying...

I beat it (39 levels or so?). The blubbly things move in the last level. Then, after congratulating you, it gives you an impossible level with forty or so moving rainbow-colored thingers. Rainbow massacre...

If I knew which was level 30, I could possibly help. But then again, it was just a matter of tweaking for a long time. (I only have time for this because I have so much work to do, you see.) Don't disregard the number of grenades, though. On a few levels you have to lower it, but on most I just went full blast. Also, try the settings from the last level when you reach a new one. That worked a few times.

For those who haven't seen the inspiration for this, by the way, it's from a game called Halo in which some enterprising folks found they could launch warthogs into the air (a warthog being a vehicle in the game) with enough grenades.

30 is killing me.

Is 30 the one where they are in the shape of an X? Put the truck to the left of the screen and angle it so you hit the first three aliens in one swoosh. Then it will ricochet off the right wall, hit the other alien on the left, bounce on the ground and hit the last one.

good call, banished, but I had better luck doing it in the reverse. I started on the right and launched left. the lower left-hand alien is slightly lower than the right, so it's a little easier to get it on the bounce.

actually, i finished lvl 30 from the other (right-hand) side. no idea what was the final tweak that did it, but i tried the same method at least 100 times b4 it worked. the square was easy compared to the x.

hint (that worked for me): don't go all the way into the corner.

jinx.
