I was just playing this and thought "wow, someone ought to post this to the blue..."

Get out of my head.

Another Saturday lost in a Flash. Thanks!

This is a lot harder when you try and use as few moves as possible. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to save your move count if you use the Load Stage feature, so there isn't really any reason to be concerned with the number of moves you actually need.

Entertaining game though.

Argh, totally stuck on 11. Great game though.
posted by nkknkk at 1:39 PM on June 23, 2007


11 sucks. By the time I figured it out, and got to 12, I realized that the difficulty level had gone from "fun" to "well, this is going to take a while".

Hint: working backwards is very useful.

Yes, please someone help nkknkk and me on 11! Way I see it, there are only two ways you can be situated to start your trip back towards the hole, and neither way is going to let you make the right hand turn.

Level 28 so far. I like it. It's nice and meditative.
posted by painquale at 2:15 PM on June 23, 2007


I'd like to thank the designer for making the game attractive as well as fun. So many of these games look like total ass, and maybe it's just me, but that lowers their appeal.

I'm stuck at 13. This one blows.
posted by papakwanz at 2:26 PM on June 23, 2007


picea, you're right, and I suppose I sounded annoyed and bitchy like I often do in my previous comment.

This is a very pretty game in many ways and I quite like it.

*falls off 11 for the 10th time trying to get it in the hole*

I hate realistic games.
posted by Freaky at 2:47 PM on June 23, 2007


691589 gets you to 28, I can't finish it. But it's a great game!

30/280351 (if you count clockwise, starting at 1, in level 29 from the top-left O, you have to hit them in sequence 4,1,2,5,6,4)

And, also, there went my Saturday.

I played with this to publish my blog back in the day. Boy, has the interface changed.

yeah, i'm on the same level.. it's fucking impossible
posted by empath at 6:44 PM on June 23, 2007


level 19 - huh? how do I get to the last switch? nice game -- the '2001' wind ambience is a little distracting though. Maybe some light jazz music would be better.
posted by Down10 at 6:56 PM on June 23, 2007


empath - which level? 31? from bottom right (BR) get the upper X, then return, progress to top left which lets you do the dance to realign on the right squares and return to the center to get the lower X, then return to TL to jiggle, then BL (and X) and then jiggle again and go through to BR back to TR and exit.
posted by devbrain at 6:56 PM on June 23, 2007


nevermind-- passed it, and now up to lvl 25. good game!
posted by Down10 at 7:23 PM on June 23, 2007


Ok! finished ..... 32/879021, 33/614955.

Last level .....

Start to the "X":
RRRRULDDLURUURRDRDRULLURDRDDRDLDDRRU

Next, lay your block so the right hand side is on the newly formed block:
DLLUURULUULULDRU

Finally, roll on outta there:
LLLDDDLDLLDLU

Nice game, I'd love to see it ported to portable handhelds.

Excellent. Addictive.

Great but I can't use any passcode

I type them and press enter and nothing happens
posted by zouhair at 2:25 AM on June 24, 2007


It's 2:45 AM. I just had to get out of bed to play this game because the block was keeping me awake by rolling around my head.

Damn you.
posted by rouftop at 2:49 AM on June 24, 2007


Brilliant. Anybody know the maths underlying the paths? Each level is clearly formally specified in some manner....
posted by fcummins at 3:47 AM on June 24, 2007


I don't see how level 25 is even possible. :(
posted by cj_ at 5:10 AM on June 24, 2007


Unbelievably addictive. Spent Saturday getting up to level 25 or some such, swearing frequently at the seemingly impossible switch/teleport/hole combinations.

Thanks for the link!
posted by misha at 8:17 AM on June 24, 2007


I type them and press enter and nothing happens

you have to click enter on the screen.


I can't figure out 16 for the life of me. How do you stop the divided blocks from hooking back up?
posted by CunningLinguist at 9:50 AM on June 24, 2007


got it.
posted by CunningLinguist at 9:53 AM on June 24, 2007


Got up to 15 so far, will have a go at the rest later. Fun game, thanks! I had some odd keyboard problems though.

Cool game. Am completely stuck on level 27 though, you can only roll on those orange tiles, right?
posted by Ms. Next at 2:24 PM on June 24, 2007


Ms. Next -- the orange tiles cannot support the weight of the block by themselves, so no standing upright on them. So you can roll or flip on them, just so long as your "flips" "land" on non-oranges.

098598 gets you 15, which is where I'm at, and this comment will let me resume later.

Let me be the first to admit that I can only get to level 7, and my penis is waaay smaller than yours.
posted by tehloki at 1:57 AM on June 25, 2007


28 is killing me. Anyone have a hint?
posted by CunningLinguist at 6:50 AM on June 25, 2007


My husband, damn it, beat the whole game. There are, I believe, thirty-two levels, maybe thirty-three. He's an engineer, and recommends "thinking backwards" to get the answers.

I take frequent breaks to keep me from throwing my computer out the window, and I am on level 25.
posted by misha at 9:09 AM on June 25, 2007


4447 moves. In twenty hours. But I actually only played about two and a half of them. Fun!

I have been on a level so long I no longer remember what level it is - 15, I think. Maybe 16.

Gaaaaaaaaa
posted by rtha at 8:36 PM on June 25, 2007


Yeah, I got stuck on level 31 and then gave up for a while because I had to archive and install after doing a recommended software update, which was even more masochistic than this game. But only just.
posted by misha at 10:44 PM on June 25, 2007


So I was bored and decided to run through this game again. 2615 moves, in just under an hour.

I like this game.
posted by Arturus at 10:48 PM on June 25, 2007


My new flash game will be entitled, "kill Arturus in under 2615 moves."
