Please dismantling the Tea canister(?). You have only a screwdriver. Japanese skill is NO need to slove this puzzle. Good luck! (Previously)

Furious clicking fills my office again. Just another day with a new flash game.

Not as intriguing as the first. The puzzles were more linear, and I didn't like the final element much. Still a good way to kill a few minutes.

Wow. Clicking like mad all over the place and getting no response except for the clock-like lock...which I can't seem to go back from.

the clock is all you need

Oh, I really hate the tune from the second clue. Particularly because I can't figure it out.
posted by kensch at 1:52 PM on November 27, 2009


It does seem easier, but I hate the blue ball part at the (?) very end. Glad I've got a mouse and am not trying to do it on my laptop's touchpad.

What I want to know, though, is what is wrong with this culture that they make all their radios and tea canisters with explosives?!

No. 8631. The last few levels are nasty - one mistake and you'll have to do it all over again. Oh, and why, pray tell, wasn't there any actual matcha in that can? I feel cheated.

Heh. Kind of a nice twist. I don't like that I had to keep starting back at the turtle whenever I messed up one of the parts after.

Ah. Also, I'm 8651.

I'm completely dumbfounded by the spinning gears, right after the tones on/off puzzle.

This is great, though. Love stuff like this. Is there more?
posted by Cool Papa Bell at 2:04 PM on November 27, 2009


Wait, I got past the gears. This is great stuff.
posted by Cool Papa Bell at 2:09 PM on November 27, 2009


Took me a bit of time to get the spinning gears, that was the only hard part (other than that I'm doing this on a touchpad)

OK, I can't do the music one. I can't hear notes well enough to do it by sound and I don't have the patience to go through all 256 combination.
posted by octothorpe at 2:10 PM on November 27, 2009


This game is hard! Has anyone figured out how to get past the LOADING...78% level?

Octohorpe, if you watch the notes the little dots should light up. You don't really need to be able to distinguish notes by sound to solve the puzzle.
posted by Solon and Thanks at 2:12 PM on November 27, 2009


That was a nice puzzle, and much easier than escaping from a closet of a telephone box for sure. I found the turtle the hardest to understand without a bit of close attention.

octothorpe, from left to right turn off two, three and seven.

I'm stuck on the red & blue flashing lights. I assume the glyphs on the side are trying to tell me something.

OK--I get the red & blue lights.

But how do you get past the clock?!

Sorry. I just utterly don't understand puzzles like this. I have no idea where to begin or where to get clues.

I give at the maze-ball. I'm on a laptop - mouse tricks are too tiring! (after 3 attempts at the entire thing especially)

Fun times otherwise. Thanks!

Nevermind, figured it out. Fuck you, turtle.

Argh, the gears are hurting my brain. I see the letters and the arrows, and yet I have no clue.

Er, never mind.

Hint: Think of it in terms of degrees.

If you're like me and were driven mad by the ill-advised tooltip on the flash embed, paste javascript:void(document.getElementById('FlashID').title='') in the address bar and press enter.

#8950, whatever that means. Fun little game, though horribly annoying.
posted by reptile at 4:33 PM on November 27, 2009


#9046. That was fun in the end, though I agree that some parts were more frustrating than they needed to be.
posted by wanderingmind at 5:16 PM on November 27, 2009


I'm on a laptop, the little blue ball is cramping up my hands. I give for now.
posted by TooFewShoes at 5:19 PM on November 27, 2009


I found the blue ball puzzle absolutely maddening on a trackpad, but it wasn't too bad on a mouse.

I preferred the other one; I don't like the dexterity-required puzzles in this version as much.

Anyone notice that he forgot to change the mouseover text? It still says 'radio'. :)
posted by Malor at 5:42 PM on November 27, 2009


Tip for trackpad users: on the ball puzzle, zoom in or enlarge the browser display as much as possible. On a mac the the key combo is "command +", or just use the "Zoom In" option from the view menu. Otherwise you need a mouse, or really good hand/eye coordination.

Love this.

that little blue ball took me forever with the trackpad. Must've blown up like a dozen times.

Sadly for me, this puzzle will forever remain unsloved.

phew, got it. The clock made me so mad, but the other ones were relatively non-hair pulling.

(that clock got me really frustrated!)

Not a big fan of "I will now punish you because you happen to be using a track pad. Haha."

Also, man, now I want some tea. More tea, less explosives, next time.

Not a big fan of "I will now punish you because you happen to be using a track pad. Haha."

Figuring I had made it through most the puzzles, I gave up after a few tries on the mouse maze. If you happen to be using a trackpad, this goes from being a series of enjoyable puzzles to "I'm not doing all that over for the tenth time!" really fast.

Also, man, now I want some tea. More tea, less explosives, next time.

Yeah, I'd heard the Japanese tea ceremony was complex, but I had no idea...
posted by Avelwood at 1:04 AM on November 28, 2009


Yeah I gave up on the trackpad until I saw the zoom-in solution esome suggests, which really helps a lot. I only died once on the windmill after zooming in.

I actually don't mind the dexterity puzzle so much as it making me redo the previous two puzzles every time I failed. This is epic game usability fail.
posted by cj_ at 4:21 AM on November 28, 2009


I felt really great because i was able to solve all the puzzle-type puzzles in a really short time.

And then the accursed drag-the-ball-through-the-maze problem

and all i have is a trackpad

and i didn't read the comments first so zooming in hadn't occurred to me

so i died about 30 times but i actually did it

maze with trackpad full scale

i'm going to go buy a gun and shoot watermelons for awhile now.
posted by tehloki at 1:29 PM on November 28, 2009


Yes, the trackpad level was a bit of an issue. Especially as with the new MacBook Pro's trackpads, there isn't even a separate button. Cue finger dancing...

I really liked the level with the red beret and the scone.

It took me forever to figure out that the worm is part of the puzzle.
posted by Netzapper at 3:55 AM on November 29, 2009


Oh no. I've seen that last part with the little ball before...this is all a big scheme to get me to scream like a school girl, isn't it?
posted by niles at 8:50 PM on November 29, 2009


With the exception of the blue ball part, this was good.
posted by ObscureReferenceMan at 9:31 AM on November 30, 2009


Okay, I'm honestly not being all LOLENGRISH here, but why are Japanese-to-English translations always so bad? I'm genuinely curious. Don't they hire professional translators for this stuff? If so, how do such crappy translators stay in business? Or do they just tap the first guy who claims to know English and says he's willing to do it for free/cheap? (I mean, we're talking about a dumb little Flash game here, so that would be unsurprising and understandable, but I see equally bad translation in appliance instructions, movie subtitles, etc.) Are translations from English to other languages equally bad?
