So hard! I'm not liking this game much...

Olavo said...

Lovely challenge.

Fitz said...

1808 moves, but I got the WIN SCREEN!!

ore said...

Anyone have an idea on the lowest possible number of moves required to complete all levels? I've got 515, but I know that's lowerable (I'm still two above the gold standard on level 16).

Olavo said...

@ore
For levels 8 and 10, I used one move LESS than the gold standard... Haven't finished all levels yet, though.

ore said...

Olavo - Yeah, I managed to beat the gold on many of them (mostly in the later levels). The numbering on the levels has gone a bit wonky for me (e.g., I'm almost positive I had that one with all the yellows second, but now it's listed as Lvl 4) so I'm not sure which ones you're referring to, but in the first half I could get lower than the gold in both levels with a red, magenta, yellow, and cyan.

To tam - Saw you (or Bart) removed your comments, but don't worry, I wasn't offended. I'm sure you'll be delighted to know that I've since lowered my total to 473. Cheers.

@ore

473 sounds great. I managed 475 so far.

Can you let me know which levels can be improved? I now have:

Level - Moves
1 - 10
2 - 19
3 - 8
4 - 12
5 - 11
6 - 11
7 - 24
8 - 16
9 - 11
10 - 10
11 - 20
12 - 10
13 - 27
14 - 26
15 - 19
16 - 22
17 - 26
18 - 34
19 - 17
20 - 23
21 - 30
22 - 23
23 - 17
24 - 49

Thanks!

Olavo - we differ on 7 levels, not all of them in my favor:

8*: I have 14
13: 29 (you're lower by 2)
15: 26 (ouch! I assume there is another path?)
16: 20
17: 25
22: 19
24: 47

Happy choo-choo-ing!

* I am pretty sure I know which level you mean here, although for me it has a different level number. The one I'm thinking of has a gold standard of 17.

ore said...

update: Found the 27-move solution on 13, and was able to get 18 on Lvl 15 once I knew I was going to need a completely different approach. Thanks for the help! New total: 463.

Olavo said...

ore, thanks a lot to you as well!

I now managed to equal all your level scores, and I lowered level 22 to 18.
So, my total is now 462.
Do you think we can get any lower than that?
It's funny: when you KNOW it can be done, you will find a way. But when you DON'T know, it's a different story, don't think you think? It's all in the mind I guess...

Anyway, I really liked the game, so thx to Bart!

ore said...

Olavo - With that hint, now at 462 as well! I know what you mean about the mental blocks. Once I get attached to a certain route for a puzzle, it's hard to think about changing it up until I know there's a better solution out there. I imagine we could probably still lose a couple moves somewhere, but I'm happy to stay at 462. At least until someone claims 461, I guess.

My thanks to Bart for the link as well!

So I just discovered this game today. After a quick search to find out what the lowest scores people have been able to obtain are, I ended up here.

I know I'm a couple of months behind this conversation, but after reading ore and Olavo's exchange (along with a few hours of messing around) I was able to lower my score to:

461!!!

Here are my individual lvl scores:
1 - 10
2 - 19
3 - 14
4 - 11
5 - 8
6 - 11
7 - 11
8 - 12
9 - 24
10 - 10
11 - 20
12 - 10
13 - 27
14 - 26
15 - 18
16 - 20
17 - 25
18 - 33
19 - 17
20 - 23
21 - 30
22 - 18
23 - 17
24 - 47

(these level numbers are how they appear on the game I'm looking at now so they may differ slightly from older versions.)
