You already know that this is the only level. Well, this is the only level too.

Hopelessly stuck at level five. So many dead. Beginning to feel like I'm not treating elephants with respect.

Stuck on level thirteen. Hmm.

The music really adds to the overall effect of feeling like I'm slowly going insane as I sit in my living room with the lights off directing a crudely-drawn elephant towards a button and a pipe opening over and over and over again.

On reflection, the worst part is that the easy ones are over so fast it feels like I'm stuck on every level.

Thanks, but now I'm stuck on 23. I expect to be stuck a lot this evening.

Ah, you bastard!

I loved the first one, and I was just doing a quick check prior to going to bed. Now I gotta stay up and play.

I hate you! (I love you)

Nomiconic, for level 23, think about the title of the level, and the way you can cause the last third of of that title to come true for you (since two already are).

Huh. Perusing the creator's profile on the Armor Games website shows two more elephant-related games, elephant rave and run elephant run. If I had seen them before I made the post I would've included them, as well. Elephant rave in particular is quite fun.

My 7-year old is home sick from school today. He beat the other two games -- this is going to make him very happy.

Took me about 26 minutes, although a good amount of that was level 15, which I was reluctant to do the thing needed to finish it as a matter of principle.

The elephant from the title screen can be moved around. This is part of the solution of one of the puzzles, but also, if you go to the bottom right corner of the title screen and then jump behind the instruction card and hang left, there is a portal to a secret level. I have no idea how to solve that one though.

I feel like this is going to cut significantly into my Robot Unicorn Attack playing time. *sigh*

How is this different than Frogger, Pac Man, etc?
posted by stormpooper at 6:42 AM on February 18, 2010


Pac Man has multiple maze layouts, and the gameplay in both Frogger and Pacman is always essentially the same.

Pac Man has multiple maze layouts

Not the Pac Man machine I mastered during Junior High. Did you really play a Pac Man machine where the maze changed?

Hippybear, I believe jedicus is suffering from Pacman/Ms.Pacman confusion

Well, I unlocked the squirrel, at least.

Have absolutely no idea how to beat level 31.

How do I hit "refresh" on a mac?
posted by musofire at 10:42 AM on February 18, 2010


you don't beat 31 - just entering (and hitting the button?) unlocks a new game mode

False. Aside from Pac-Man not having multiple mazes, Frogger requires sharp timing and an ability to finding spots where multiple timed sequences line up, while Pac-Man requires maneuvering to escape pursuers, an ability to see where the monsters will go in reaction to your movements, and ultimately, the memorization of patterns.

Hell. I hate that game. And simultaneously love it.
posted by caution live frogs at 11:58 AM on February 18, 2010


False.

You misunderstood me. I meant that the gameplay in each game does not vary much from level to level, not that the gameplay in Frogger is the same as the gameplay in Pac-Man.

The "Amazeing" stage in FML mode is driving me crazy. Make... the spikes... stooooooop!
