I can't even get #1 :(

Dinko Deeness said...

I tried this on Firefox and couldn't complete Number 1. But the same method worked in IE. Anyone else have this problem.

Dinko D.
I have the same problem. I can't start the game anyhow.

horrorshow said...

Yeah, finally after 90 Minutes I manage to solve all 25 Levels.

I really enjoyed this nice game even though in some parts it's very "unfair".

crazyyboyy said...

great game so far bit stuck on lvl 3 the hint doesnt even help ny hints plz peeps

Carly said...

OK, I am at level 23 and skipped two along the way. This is a really stupid game. The hints are useless ("It's on your keyboard" - no, REALLY?) and in some levels things don't work. For "brighter" my monitor is already at its brightest and no manipulation gets me anywhere. Stupid, stupid game.

Katie said...

i cant even get #2

Thijs said...

Solved all but 25. I like these kind of games.

horrorshow said...

@ Carly

you don't need to set you monitor Brighter... Make a Screenshot & copy in to Photo-Shop -> there you can make it brighter (gamma)

I guess this one is not Mac-compatible?

noni mouse said...

#4 IS on the keyboard.
The lock on the screen is the clue and when you press this key a light either turns on or off.

qwerty said...

7 is hilarious once you figure it out

stupid game I'm not downloading some program just to play a game/Besides I don't have a printer for the last level

Bobette said...

omg this is HARD I don't even get a lot of these levels and whoever said the hints don't work- more power to ya. I've unlocked all but the last set of levels, and I can't figure any of those out. Plus for "candle" I think you need a mic/webcam, neither of which I have. Oh, well. Pretty good overall, I guess. :)

Lichen Fairy said...

Bobette: you can just type the password out on the candle level.

general hint:What does someone do on their birthday?

Bobette said...

omg thank you Lichen!! How could I have missed the little memo at the top... I feel dumb. I'm still stuck on some others, though. You are like the official hint giver of this site. Thanks again!! :)

Lichen Fairy said...

no problem! ;)

Which other ones are you stuck on? I've managed to get most of them now.

Bobette said...

umm... 4, 8, 10, 13, 17, 20, and 21-25. I'm afraid I'm not very good at this game :) You can help me out if you want, I really don't care about the ending. Hey, do you have a Kong account, Lichen? Thanks!

Lichen Fairy said...

No sorry, I don't.

4 - the padlock is a clue to a key on your keyboard. you have to contradict the light twice in a row I think.

8 - go to the url and see if there is anything different

10 - run away before the bomb explodes. then see what happens next

13 - where is there a wheel on your computer?

17 - Who is me?

20 - try to find a way to reload the battery but not the whole page

21-22 - think wii sports tennis, if not, how does pong usually work?

23 - it wasn't too late yesterday

24 - just do what the title says

25 - try printing


Hope that helps! ;)

matt w said...

Yeah, I tried level 1 on Mac with Firefox, and apparently level 1 works on Mac with Safari but not Firefox. Phooey.

Oh, and level 2 requires a two-button mouse. Phooey phooey.

noga said...

couldnt get 19 and 15... damnit...

Bobette said...

Thank you Lichen! Those really helped!

matt w said...

Sorry, I think it's level 3 that requires the two-button mouse. (I mean, you can do it without one, but it hardly makes sense that way.)

Rhi said...

Stuck on level 6!!!

Help

Anonymous said...

so easy! until...level 23 >.<

Anonymous said...

most of these are completely common sense, dont overthink it! so simple its genius...

Margaret said...

Oh boy, It's taken me this long to get the game to work and believe me, having to tweak Opera to be able to finish really irritated me.

I would have liked this better if a little bit more thought had gone into testing/beta'ing.

airrin said...

help!! help!! i need help!! i cant get 8,9,14,18,19,21-25. . .any hints besides the one the game has?????

airrin said...

15 too

Lichen Fairy said...

Right then, here are hints for all of the levels. :)

1. get rid of the rectangle

2. there is something in white text (how do you read white text)

3. which click is circled?

4. the padlock is a clue to a key on your keyboard. you have to contradict the light twice in a row I think.

5. there is an easy way to avoid the grey bit IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAMESCREEN

6. watch for where the safezone will be and work out the pattern

7. the mouse is a red herring. What did you do for level three?

8. go to the url. Is there anything different?

9. is there any way to make the text bigger?

10. run away before the bomb explodes. then see what happens next

11. do just what it says

12. turn up the volume and follw the DIRECTIONS

13. where is there a wheel on your computer?

14. how do you make the game smoother?

15. there was a password in the instructions, but I cna't seem to find it anymore. It's still a NICE GAME though.

16. what do people do on their birthdays?

17. whose corners?

18. who is me?

19. for webcam users, block out the light when the red light comes up. I don't know how else to do it.

20. reload the battery but not the whole page

21. + 22. think wii sports tennis, if not, how does pong usually work?

23. it wasn't too late yesterday

24. just do what the title says

25. try printing
