I'm stuck on credit-level (number 16) - maybe a bug?

I think you can't solve the credit level because the girl already turned into gold

AHHHH!!!!

Apologies for the above post....spoiler tag was done incorrectly.

Fixed:

First

Then

Next

Finally

The second step "Then" is crucial. The "First" step does not have to be.

Hover mouse on the bold text for the hints.

Thank you for removing the erroneous comment!

The two above posts are my solution to level 11.

I finished all levels but 13. Just can't get it done. Nice little puzzler. Thanks, Bart! :)

This game really needs a "SAVE GAME" button.

*sigh* Unfortunately, lately my computer has absolutely refused to load anything on Kongregate. It's incredibly frustrating. :(

Aha! I have FINALLY found a video walkthrough for those like me and others stuck on their respective levels......

I believe "Level 16" is just a credits page.

Even with the walkthrough I still can't get the "And she feels so distant" level.

very clever game- was able to beat- although credits level is supposed to be impossible right? was confused at first about what the heck game was about but realized- it's supposed to be the king who wished that everything he touched turned to gold right? so he couldn't touch his love? how does water negate the gold-turning?

SO saad...

Ian said...

The river negates the gold turning as it represents the river Pactolus from the myth which cured him. Google it.

@Ian- wow I learned something new... imagine that!

This game was beautiful, but very sad. I was expecting a better ending. It didn't really end; it was just left hanging. I never really thought about King Midas' story like this before.

Gah! I can't get past level 11! I know what I have to do, but I just can't do it. :( Well, at least I got this far.
