Fun, addictive, will drive me crazy. Kinda reminds me of the Dyson game discussed previously here.

Leel 5 is where I stopped seeing the solution right away. Proceeding with the headbanging against it.

Level 11 is evil
posted by pmbuko at 12:07 PM on January 19, 2006


11 is easy. Just throw the blocks all in the dip on the right to fill that one pesky dot, then put the blocks on the outside and 'step' around the outside to get them back to line up to where they're needed.

I don't know about Level 11, but Level 10 - JOE - is a pain in my butt. There's 30 friggin' blocks here all of a sudden.

JOE was annoying, and almost made me give up (cuz it was annoying, not hard), but it gets a little better. not much.

If you want to see what the fuss is about, Level 11 code is 63528.

I take it back. Level 10 isn't that hard.
posted by JWright at 12:24 PM on January 19, 2006


i figured out 11. now on 14.

he must have gotten bored after 11. The levels after that are much easier -- now on 20
posted by pmbuko at 12:40 PM on January 19, 2006


Yeah, it's actually a bit dull after a while. They don't seem to get any harder. I'm on 20 as well.

10 looks to be a bit tedious. Fun game.

like it!

30 levels total. They do get a bit more interesting between 22-30, though there are some gimmes in there too.

My mind finally went completely numb at 23. 71813.

Something that might conceivably make it more entertaining would be seeing how other people solved a level once you'd solved it yourself.

I'm stuck on 8

That was fun. Thanks.

Similar to the eighties classic "Sukoban". I lost some days to that and I suspect I'm about to do the same here. I rattled through to level 7 fairly easily. Think I'll stop for now before I lose my evening.

That is a lot of fun, but my finely-honed sokoban reflexes are a liability - I keep overlooking useful moves that would lead to a stuck position in sokoban.

I think what I want to do now is design some levels for this thing.

I'm stuck on 3 - are there some moves other than pushing a block in a direction until it hits something that I don't know about?
posted by Artw at 5:07 PM on January 19, 2006


The Monkey, I got stuck there for a little while too. I can't really remember how I did it, but I think the last block needs to be the top yellow (from the left side).

Yeah, I just got it again. Put the lower-most yellow block in first. That's a big help. My last move was pulling out the left yellow block in the cross out to the left wall, to stop the final yellow block, which slid into the top slot.

are there some moves other than pushing a block in a direction until it hits something that I don't know about?

Using blocks to stop the other blocks in good spots. You can move two blocks all over the place (in particular, round and round the outside frame).

Sokoban. Yes. That's what I meant. Not Sukoban. Too much Sudoku has confused me.

woot

Addictive. Taking a break from level 10 to come back and say thanks.
posted by Meredith at 5:44 PM on January 19, 2006


Yeah, I'm not entirely convinced 26 is solvable. Rrr.
posted by Meredith at 6:35 PM on January 19, 2006


I thought level 3 was impossible for a while, but once I broke through that I was able to sort of get the internal logic of the levels and finished it without too much trouble. (By the way, those of you who were stuck on level 3, think "rolling.") Fun!

I think I've figured out level 10, but don't have the patience at the moment to go through all the pushing and pulling involved. Better to leave it until I'm at work.

loved it! made it through 30, but killed my whole evening.
Thanks!

fuck, stuck on 26 also
posted by number9dream at 10:42 PM on January 19, 2006


i'm on level 90. slackers.
posted by Hat Maui at 2:56 AM on January 20, 2006


woo! just did all 30. wish there was an easy way to backtrack through the solved levels - I didn't note the numbers as I did each one.
posted by devbrain at 9:05 AM on January 20, 2006


Nice. But very difficult for me as a colorblind person. Down with annoyingly washed out colors in color-based games!
posted by Harry at 2:28 PM on January 20, 2006


Yeah, I'm not entirely convinced 26 is solvable. Rrr.

Get a block to the very middle of the top row, and then another block underneath it. Use the last one to land on top the free floating piece of the level, then head to the left, down, and back to the lowest dot. Then just move the other two down.
posted by mrgrimm at 2:49 PM on January 20, 2006


Yeah, after spending just about as long on 26 last night as I did on levels 1-25 combined, I figured it was time for bed (or course, when I closed my eyes, all I could see was level 26 and pushing the blocks around in my mind anyway, kind of like when you've been playing tetris too long). Got up this morning and solved it in under 2 minutes, and finished through level 30 before I went to work.

I want more, now.
