How to pass level 1???? Heeeeeelllllpppp mmmmeeee!

PK said...

You forgot the disclaimer: "Requires Unity Player"

This isn't Flash or HTML5.

Bart said...

Well if you haven't installed the Unity player by now, you really should, because this is one fiendishly cunning puzzler!

On Level 3. These are tricky but makes you think. Thanks Bart.

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (USE ONLY IF YOU'RE COMPLETELY STUMPED)

For Level 1, try to line up three blocks for each ray/light so that you can go back from the start to pass through untouched.

For Level 2, use the vertical block to help you move the upper ray block so that you can use it to push the horizontal block sticking out.

END OF SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's in unity, not wasting my time.

ekieramzen said...

Is there another link for this game?
It doesn't work on my PC. :( I only see a pink background.
Normally, I don't have any problems with Unity games.

That's too bad!

Anonymous said...

How to do level1??????
Three blocks for the upper light is not enough :-(
HELP!!!!

Anonymoose said...

Finished! A bit tricky, but neat.

Me/You said...

To difficult for me... But I'll try again when I'll have time! Thanks Bart

Anyone there to help me??

lisa said...

Molly!

I'm sooo sorry bart!

This game was so F***ing hard, but i finally completed it. It takes a lot of logic thinking, and you have to think the levels through before you start. Plus the walkthrough for level 1 and 2 from an other anonymous, was a really good help to get started.. Good Luck all :D

lisa said...

O good!
here comment gone!!

im never going to let her play games without me from now on!

Rainbow... said...

wow... I really have no idea what to do....

I don't get it. The last few games that have been posted seem to be laking the quality of the older games.

I'm with you Bart. I can't even get level 1. :)

I would have loved to play this. It sounds fun. But it uses Unity, and I share a computer with my parents who don't let me download that kind of program. Great.

Niall said...

I'm having the same problem as ekieramzen. All I see is a pink screen.

rc said...

Fiendish!

I thought I liked rock hard games, and after a few levels maybe I was wrong :)

It's interesting what can emerge from just a few simple rules.

Thanks Bart!

just a pink screen and I never have any problems with unity too.

llamallama123 said...

Anonymous said...

Made it....was a challenging game,one of the best i played.

Anonymous said...

pink screen issues too...what's going on?

-LIZ- said...

Fiendishly difficult and fabulous if you like puzzles; just about to embark on level 4.

I was having pink screen issues too, but after some fiddling around with clicking on my header then back on the window I got it to work.

Anonymous said...

I CAN'T PASS LEVEL ONE!!!!! THIS IS THE FIRST GAME THAT I QUIT ON THE FIRST LEVEL!!!!

-LIZ- said...

I feel like I really accomplished something today, and it had nothing to do with work! I made it through all the levels!!!

MARTIAN !!! said...

Hey bart I saw on youtube that You were making a game so you got your daughter to work on the music! SILLY BUT AWESOME AND CUTE!!!!!!

-LIZ- said...

The previous hint was right about level 1, line up three boxes on each ray. But the hint didn't tell you what section of the puzzle you should be in when you've completed that.



BIG SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!



You should be in the middle section with three boxes lined up on each ray.

Anonymous said...

Mine will load but as soon as level one starts i only see a purple screen

Bart said...

Of course I have already beaten level 1 by now ;)
If you still haven't here's how to do it: bring two blocks to the top part, so you can leave the top part with 3 blocks in the top laser line, then line up 3 blocks in the bottom laser line, so you can safely do down and back to the top.

Miserable said...

Great game!... yook me like 1 and half hour to beat!!!

Anna said...

35.!!! Ich bin 35.! Zum ersten Mal in meinem Leben!

Great game. Games wit simple rules like this one and Impasse are great.

Anonymous said...

Bleah...no unity web player for Linux
(-_-);

bubba said...

Noice! Took me about 45 minutes. When you'll catch the drift the levels begin to be self-explanatory.

Stage name said...

Reminded me of Puzzle Boy Flash (from eons ago). The real trick is figuring out what your goal is and then how the game physics function.

colinbashbash said...

again, a great game. stuck on level 7, but i'll come back to it in a bit.

-k said...

This game makes me feel like my brain is made of mushy oatmeal. I managed to pass level 1 but am utterly lost otherwise. Thanks for sharing this and keeping me humble, Bart :)

dyork said...

Nice puzzles. Quite hard early on, until you get the hang of what's going on. Gets easier as you learn how to do some basic combos.

On the minus side:
1. I got quite a bit of key bounce, which is a feature of Unity (you have to write your own debounce as I remember).
2. The graphics are just lazy. Anyone can produce something nicer than that.
3. Really needs a scoring system based on number of moves, to give a target to work against. Plus stars, achievements -- the bar is high these days.
4. And more levels. I was just getting started...

Still, nice find and we can always hope for "puzzles 2".

I absolutely loved this game: challenging without having to hunt for pixels, combine things that don't logically go together or having to redo things just to get that one jump right. Perfect :)

Anonymous said...

Sounds like a good challenging game, I wish I could play it. All I am getting is a blank screen and some ethereal music playing.

Taylor Campbell said...

Would love to play this game cause it sounds good but whenever i start the game and click new game i just get a pink screen. could i get some help fixing it?

I
KNOW,
RIGHT?

@ llamallama123

Yeah... someone I know is also facing cancer... and a super agressive and rare kind to boot...

colinbashbash said...

yea! finished. taking a break was a great idea.

ZET said...

Simple y cargado de lógica, de esos juegos que solo se encuentran acá. Gracias Bart!

Anonymous said...

bart i didnt get your instructions :( i tryed and again and again ....no luck D:

jaymar said...

Endless pink screen problem has been fixed.

The puzzles were tough, but I finally got them all. Figuring out the objective was the first hurdle!

hover here to see the objective.

SPOILER level 1

If you manage to align four blocks upside, you are on the way home. One of the four blocks has to be directed from above to the downside laser line. ;)

END OF SPOILER

Okay let's try level two now...

Kenneth Bowen said...

Omg, it took me a week to finish this game, and all without using verbal or visual cheats. Great game overall and thanks to the developer and to Bart for posting it

Anonymous said...

I was first it was me. And I am first in the next one too.

Alfinete said...

Haha ! I'll warn you when I pass the tricky level 3.

Burnt Ice Cream said...

I cannot play this either. I have the unity player installed but no cursor when trying to start the game.

Anonymous said...

hey burnt! Don't need a cursor, just use the arrow keys...this is finally WORKING! WOOT!

Anonymous said...

Awesome game.
Difficult, with simple rules.
Thanks Bart!

Anonymous said...

Took a good twenty minutes to complete all eight levels, and now I feel like I'm getting a tension headache!

But fun and CHALLENGING game, Bart! Thanks for recommending this one!
