I live in Exeter, where this guy studies, so if I get stuck I can "send the boys round".

Stuck on level 59..

Am I cheating?

Gah. Level 13 is confusing me.

Got to level 7 without having to think too much, and now I'm stuck..

Clue for 13: Follow the direction of the arrows when reading the words, starting from the backspace.

Clue for 7:"the answer will be"

Anyone got a clue for 15? I feel dumb.

Not to diss this nice game as such, but...

Font tags... check.
Open tags... check.
No header or body tags...check.
Fantasy tags... check.

You might want to retract that statement.

Stuck on level 12... aggggh!

18. There's no such thing as "more deadlier". Is that part of the answer?
posted by dingobully at 3:17 AM on October 26, 2005


I got it, but only by cheating and looking at hints. I gave up at 13, I just don't have the patience for this kind of game... hehehe
posted by antifuse at 3:48 AM on October 26, 2005


12 i mean and no it's not part of the answer. You'll get the answer to 12 by finding a word in black, changing it to that word, and then reading the source of what u get.

This is good.

Although I resent the fact that level 50 does not work in Firefox.

Not that I ever think I'll ever get that far anyways.

Ahem, uncle harold... I never said I taught him web programming.

Google Search for inurl:people.ex.ac.uk/rbd201/riddle helps you skip ahead a bit.
posted by milov at 6:09 AM on October 26, 2005


gene_machine, I just guessed, since there is no other programming going on there... :)

Whatever, cool concept and game.

I volunteered myself for this game, which made me lose the game.

I'm not getting work done today...

Stuck on 18, and the clue in the source just confuses me more.

I (cheatingly) found the answer to level 7, but now I'm even more frustrated 'cos I don't understand why the answer is what it is! argghhhh
posted by hmca at 11:40 AM on October 26, 2005

ooooh! pretty puppy!

Yeah, I got to level two, and got bored.
posted by davejay at 12:30 PM on October 26, 2005


Yeah, I realized I had lost the game as soon as I saw the FPP. Dirty trick, that one. The link redeemed it a bit..

Another interesting project, very structurally similar to this, but focused on Python, is the Python Challenge.
posted by whir at 1:42 PM on October 26, 2005


Yeah, I cheated on number 7 also. Really don't know how one arrives at the answer!
posted by michaelonfs at 1:43 PM on October 26, 2005


oh curses. I lost "The Game" too
posted by Megafly at 2:26 PM on October 26, 2005


yeah another idiot here, can someone explain #7?
posted by joeblough at 2:46 PM on October 26, 2005


Dang, I just lost the game as well. I wish I didn't know that, so I wouldn't have lost...
posted by parallax7d at 2:53 PM on October 26, 2005


The answer to #7 is IN the clue.
posted by justjen at 3:16 PM on October 26, 2005


I am so stuck on 18 now. And no, I haven't been playing for all of the last 20 hours.
posted by Uccellina at 9:36 PM on October 26, 2005


michaelonfs and joeblough, the URL that has question #8 is not the answer to number seven.

Yargh! Lost the game.

It's been months!
posted by Cycloptichorn at 11:46 AM on October 27, 2005


WTF is up with the answer to level 7. Please.. someone who knows, just write in big letters SPOILERS, and then tell me the answer. For god's sake, I'm begging you. The weight of my ignorance is crushing me.
posted by vomitous at 1:30 PM on October 27, 2005


vomitous: I emailed you.
posted by justjen at 2:29 PM on October 27, 2005


NOOOO!!!!!!

I was refreshing this page every ten minutes, waiting for the answer!
posted by sveskemus at 2:32 PM on October 27, 2005


justjen just emailed me. If anybody else was waiting for the answer, feel free to write me.
