sticky blocks

Can you solve all the levels in Aaron Maupin's puzzler sticky blocks?

Nice one.

but @ further levels really difficult

wow, I can't figure out 27 and am now stuck on 34 as well. Nice game but, man, it is tough.

Rava said...

Good puzzler. Wished you could see the whole level on the screen instead of seeing it while moving the block. It's more difficult to plan your moves.

I can't do this one with the arrow keys on my keyboard. It moves the blocks and makes the page scroll left/right and up/down at the same time. It makes it nearly impossible to do that way. I've got to use the WASD method to get it to work. It's a great game though. Keek them coming Bart!

Anonymous said...

Same here, also with the WASD keys: the page moves the moment you use the keys.

Other than the page srolling like crazy while you're trying to play this game is really great. I've even made the page full-size and it still scrolls. Oh, well. The fun factor of the game more than makes up for the the annoyance of the crazy scrolling page.

Maupin said...

Hey guys, I'm the developer of the game and I don't see the crazy webpage-scrolling issue you've mentioned. Can I ask what browser/OS you're using?

Block Game.co said...

Hey this error was a browser and page issue and not a game issue. It has now been fixed using Javascript.

If your still experiencing difficulties then try click on the actual flash game to give priority with key actions to that over your browser.

Cheers

It's working with the arrow keys for me now. It may have just had a bug in it earlier.

2 Hours ago I played the first 10 levels. But now the game ain't loading anymore :(

Peter said...

Page loads, game doesn't.

palat said...

It's working fine now I think!

MC said...

Using FF...

Problem of the scrolling lage seems to be solved, it is fine now.

Fitz said...

Level 24 is crazy irritating!!

MC said...

I tried it in IE and it seems to work...
not a big IE user but I guess at least I can play the game...

Not fun after level 19. It took way to long to get past that level. Took one look at level 20 and gave up. Did anyone beat this game yet? Congrats to you if you did.

Carly said...

Anonymous - I have no clue what you are talking about. Level 19 wasn't bad and 20 was fairly easy actually. I am on level 34 right now, and still enjoying the game. Thanks, Aaron, for a lovely game, and Bart for posting it! :D

Can anyone help out with 31?

Nekojiru said...

Here's the solution to 31:

W,W,S,S,S,S,W,N,N,S,N,N,
E,E,E,E,E,E,S,S,S,W,N,N,
S,W

and you can take it from there...

Anonymous said...

Can't figure out level 30... maybe tomorrow... :(

Anonymous said...

thanks!

Anonymous said...

Can't beat level 20! It was so fun up until then. I give up!

Anonymous said...

for level 20: hang under the pairs, "kill" the wrong one and fill the right colour in the top thing.

Any help for level 45?
Have fun- but now i stuck since 30min...

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I finally beat level 20. Thanks for your help! You're awesome!

Anonymous said...

stuck at 35!

Carly said...

Level 35: Stick your purple on top of bottom blue. Go up and collect another blue and orange to the left of the orange you already have. Collect blue on top of the left orange cube. Now, wait for the green cube to go upwards, and stick it quickly on top of your left blue cube. When you bring home the right orange cube all the ones to the left will get unstuck and the green one will continue to travel up into the green home. Make sure you collect the remaining blocks while it's on the way and you get your star.
Hope this made sense ;)

Anonymous said...

Help on 34 please?

Anonymous said...

I think the black shape in the middle is a clue on the shape I need to build, but for the life of me, I can't extract the green block, then get out and build a shape that fits through to the end.

Nekojiru said...

That black shape in the middle is just a hole in the level, I think. No meaning.

You only need 6 blue blocks to get the star, so 2 can be left alone.

Hint: the top NE 2 blocks aren't needed.

Anonymous said...

Thx Nekojiru, but still stuck. I've tried sticking the two SW blues to the E of purple, then I add green to either the W or E end. Back out, add the two SE blues under the pack. I can't find a way to add the two top SW blocks, and still fit the green onto the target. FYI...When I add green to the W end, I can move to the end with 6 blues, but it's too long to get the green to the target.

Nekojiru said...

Okay, more detailed help for 34:

Move the purple block to the left side of the puzzle and place it on the top of the three gray block column to the left of the blue blocks.

Starting from that pos:
E,S,S,S,N,E,N,W,N,W,N,N,N,S,S,S and you can take it from there. :)

Carly said...

Anonymous @ 21:29, have you figured out 45 yet? I'm so stuck on that one and bonus level 5

For 34: Go down the inside on the left wall, pick up two cubes on the way down, and one on the way up. Go one spot to the right and put next cube on top of cube to your right. Go left and out. Pick up the left of the remaining four cubes at the right end, and then the bottom one, also on the right end so you haev one long line of cubes except for one. Leave the top and right cubes alone. Go fish the green one out and return home.

Carly said...

@ Nekojiru: LOL, I am better with words. Though if people get what I mean that is the question ;)

Anonymous said...

@Neko, thanks for the help.

@Carly, I'm an engineer, I like Neko's "Boy Scouts" technical answer. Though, I'm sure the non-techies like your description better, thanks.

Anonymous said...

no 45: try 4 at the time, not 8.

don't have a clue about no 47.
anybody any ideas??

Nekojiru said...

Love level 45. Very clever.

I managed to get the star in lvl 47 but it wasn't easy. Unless there's a more ellegant solution it requires you to nip in near the end and grab the center orange block without sticking to any of the green blocks.

To start, use the right square target to drop the left orange block against the right wall, causing the outer to green blocks to enter the middle, jam up, and eventually leave by the left hole.

Nekojiru said...

Unlike Carly I'm not good with words. ;)

I meant, take the left orange block over to the right side, grab the orange block over there, and use the target square to remove one orange block and separate from the other, depositing the remaining one against the wall so the circling outer two green blocks hit it and go into the middle.

Anonymous said...

Can anyone help with 42. I feel like its so easy I'm just missing it lol.

Carly said...

You are right, 42 is easy. Bring the blocks home in the following order, and make sure not to get ahead of yourself: blue, orange, blue, orange, red, red, orange, red, blue, orange (purple attaches on RIGHT side), and you can take it from there. Hope that helped.

Carly said...

4 at a time is not helping :(
I can manage one set of four plus three out of line, or two sets of four, but then I am stuck on the right side and can't get through. Any help, technical or otherwise, is appreciated.

By the way - did anybody tackle bonus level 5 yet? I managed the bottom part, but can't get the rest.

Carly said...

For 45: Lord help me, I JUST figured out the sequence. Top left, bottom right, right bottom, left top, bottom left, left bottom, home, right top, top right, remaining block and done.

Nekojiru said...

For 45, first go to the bottom right side of the pattern. Move straight up collecting both orange blocks on either side of your purple block. Next go to the bottom left side and move yourself straight east between the orange blocks, sticking them onto the one already stuck on the right side of your purple block. You should look like a sideways "T". Next, go to the top left of the pattern and move straight east again, collecting those two orange blocks.

I think you can figure it out from there. Getting started is the hard part.

help with 48 please :)

Anonymous said...

Anything on 49?

Anonymous said...

Level 30 please, am I just dense?

Anonymous said...

Pfff... thanks Neko, I finally was able to solved 49! I would never have figured out a solution like this by myself.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, I meant 47.

Anonymous said...

Anyone with a walkthrough for lvl 48?

Anonymous said...

For level 48, you have to pick up two blocks at a time (usually on the top face of the purple block), remove one from the board using a lock, unsticking and dropping the remaining block on a lock. Then repeat on the other side, etc. You have to kind of manage the order of blocks and your manuevering so you can get them all without getting stuck.

Anonymous said...

For 48: pick up the orange block above you and then pick up on top of that the red one that is in the right corner below. Be careful not to lose the orang block too soon!Move the two of them together into the right side from below.
Now one orange line has gone and one red block is in place.
Then put a red, blue and orang block (in that order) on top of the purple block, and move them into the left side, from bellow.
The rest is easy.

Carly said...

For 49: All I can say is, try not to schlepp around too much baggage, but don't be afraid to have some other colored blocks sticking on you than the ones you are working on. And don't allow orange to stick to red unless you have a strategy to detach them again. Be patient. I got it on my fifth try.

Carly said...

OK, all done except for bonus level 5. First half is done, but I am stuck with this extra red block and thus can't get my orange one. Did anybody finish that level yet?

Awesome game, Aaron :) Tricky, but not frustrating enough to throw in the towel.

Maupin said...

Thanks Carly! I'm glad people are enjoying my game.

Ok, hints for Bonus 5:

While completing the bottom, make sure you deposit the orange block as far right as possible, in the single opening next to the red gate...

Carly said...

Oh my, that made all the difference! Thanks, Aaron! I had it positioned so there was room on the right side, so I could pick it up if I had only my purple block. Totally got it now! And I like my reward for finishing the game... :D

Anonymous said...

I wish they had an undo button, it would make this soo much easier, but i love the game

Anonymous said...

can't get past level 30... HELP!

Maupin said...

For level 30, look at the order of the 3 locks (red, blue, orange) versus the order of the 3 blocks (orange, blue, red) sticking to the right side of your "pole." You need to use the grabbers in the bottom 2 slots to rearrange your blocks to match the order of the locks.

Just make sure you don't brush up against the green block moving around in there... until you're ready to slide the 3 blocks into place, that is.

Great Game !!!!
I'm Starting the secret level 1.

Carly said...

Ssshhhhhh!
It's called "secret" for a reason!! ;)

Anonymous said...

I'm saad...
Finished * all * levels
(included those about which we can't talk)
One of the nicest games I ever played !

Anonymous said...

I finished all levels, with stars and I'm suspicious that there's a secret level #2 because secret level #1 had stars, too! Is there a secret level #2, Maupin????

Maupin said...

Um, well there are 6 secret levels in one group, for a total of 64 levels in all. Is that what you mean?

No more levels after "Secret 6: The End?" ...sorry! Maybe in the sequel! ;)
