Is there something wrong with level 10? The blocks won't move, they always stick on the right side. Is that normal?

Anonymous said...

Love the game but also stuck on level 8 lol

Olavo said...

Getting nicer!
Lvl 12 took some time...

Anonymous said...

nevermind lolz i got it :)

Debbie said...

Great game! Stuck on 12, but having fun anyway. Thanks for another puzzle game.

Was alot of fun to play

And it got harder and harder, but with the time you learn new tricks.

the hardest one for me was 12, tried around for 5 min, then restarted and saw immediatly the solution

Thanks Bart

Anonymous said...

level 12 is too hard for me :-(

Anonymous said...

For 12:

As far as i can see you cant solve it if you screw around too long.

Restart and try to pull the long one threw the hole

Anon said...

Gah.. All going great until 8!...

Amami said...

Really nice game!! But stuck on lvl 12. restarted the level for a hundred times, but just can't see the solution^^

Anonymous said...

I know what i have to do but i just don't know how

Anonymous said...

I'm stuck on level 8.

Inko said...

After completing the Game and trying 12 again i totally forgot the solution ^^

Anonymous said...

for level 8: try to get one stick on the left ?lug? and the other on the right.it's quite easy if you managed to do this...(sorry for my english) :-)

Amami said...

@Inko:
NOOOOOOOO :-S :-D

Anon said...

Gaaaaah!.. Just when you starting to roll.. lvl.14..

Anon said...

Ha ha.. talking about stuff really does help..

Anonymous said...

I can't get 12. I've been restarting and trying to pull the long one through the hole, but it's not working. I can't get on the right side of it.

Anonymous said...

anyone figure out level 12 yet?

Anon said...

aaaaand done. Nice one Bart.. Great progression, graphics, bgm, etc.. Shame there weren't more levels but hey ho.. Merry Xmas.

Slug said...

Merry Christmas Bart! Thanks for the brain teaser.

On level 13, I've got the two blocks on on top of the other, but the star is to the side of the smaller one, like this:
-*
___

And I can't figure out how to fix it.

Anon said...

lvl 12 - you need to work out (or have learned) where the star needs to be - push thru or pull thru?.. then the order - small block or big first?.. then how to get the two blocks in position.. a bit complicated to provide a step by step guide

Anonymous said...

Thanks. That was a nice little time waster.

* is where the star/star target is
sss is the small block
llllll is the large block
This is how you move the two blocks to get the star on the left (correct) side of the large block.
Hope this helps for level 12.

got as far as level 15- interesting game.

karl said...

hi Bart, these kind of puzzle games are the reason I started reading your blog. Thanks for this great game. I enjoyed every level. Merry Christmas.

I couldn't comprehend 22:56 instructions, guess I'll have to wait for someone to make a video walkthrough.

The original didn't turn out, so this is it again. The "o"s are empty spaces, and all the other symbols are the same. (this is Anon from 22:56)

Anonymous said...

If it helps for those on twelve, I'm pretty sure that the long block has to be pulled through which means you have to find a way to get on the left end of the long block, but I myself haven't figured out how to do it either.

Anonymous said...

Level twelve no whyyyy

Very fun, but I am now very stuck. I know where I have to get the star. I just don't know *how*.

Olavo said...

Finally done. Loved it!

Anonymous said...

Finally!!! After studying 22:56/23:16 diagram for level 12, I got it, then somehow breezed through 13 but now sadly stuck at level 14. Bummer! By the way was there a "prize" for the person who finished all levels first, as on that other game?

Unknown said...

Twelve is distressing me. Any hints?

Anonymous said...

Good thinking Anonymous 23:38, it is Christmas time. Maybe there should have been a Christmas "prize/present" for the first person to complete all the levels! But it sure as heck would not have been me!

TeslaCoilGirl said...

LOVE IT!

Alexander said...

well done
lvl 12 is tricky
wish u all a merry x-mas

Unknown said...

A starting hint for Level 12: Slide small block to the right.
Detach from it by moving all the way to the right wall.
Grab the large block from its top left, and carry it up to meet the small block.
Move all three blocks down one, and right one. Detach.

Carol said...

Very Nice. Just the thing after a long day at work and a long lunch hour Christmas shopping in long lines! Merry Christmas to you!

Unknown said...

Bart, that's a great game!

Anonymous said...

Nice game Bart!

Gamergrrl said...

Great game Bart! Just challenging enough without being frustrating. Happy holidays! :)

-k said...

What a wonderful gift you've given us this year, Bart! Thank you for such a great Christmas game and I hope your holidays are filled with good friends, good food and happiness :)

Stevens Miller said...

Bart, you are the best.

Magic Book said...

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year Bart! Thanks for the game, it was fun!

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much Unknown for the Level 12 hint! On to 13!

Cyn said...

Well, that didn't take long. Only got to level 9 before I can't go any further. :P

Oh, well... will try again later. Thanks for the challenge Bart! :D

Anonymous said...

On level 8, I cannot see any way of detaching the two bricks from each other or rearranging them. All I seem to be able to do is slide the smaller one along the longer one. What am I missing?

Anonymous said...

Level 8: Put the star brick at the *side* of the shorter brick (not under it).Now move the whole thing sideways and down till the large brick will be stopped by the protruding edge. This way you will seperate the smaller brick from the larger one.

-k said...

@ Anon 8:25 - If you bring all three to the far left and then down, you can catch the small and large on the lefthand jutting corner to separate the star from the other two. you can then slide the star along the bottom toward the right in order to get around and above the large block. I took the large and small to the right and down so that I could detach myself by sliding along the top of the large as it was "caught" on it's right side by the righthand jutting corner. Hopefully that gets you to a place where you can then maneuver the small block to above the large block.

Ask again if you need more help :)

karl said...

Hi Bart, as I posted earlier: I like the game very much. Thouhg I have a small suggestion: hotkey R for refresh?

deCarlo said...

That was a great game, Bart! With that little but helpful hint from Unknown on lvl12 the rest was hard but feasible. Merry Christmas everybody!

Wookie said...

Great Game, thanks Bart. Looks Simple... But makes you think. Love it.

Anonymous said...

The music is OBERCOOOOL!
Love the game also, thanks Bart :)
Merry XMAS

Woohoo!! A new game!! And a fun one too. Thanks!!! xx

Very good game. Some spots remind me of Tower of Hanoi with the recursive solution.

Anonymous said...

way too easy ,.,... the only difficult had been 12.

tam said...

Great music and very cool game, Bart!
I'm saving level 12 for later ;)
Thank you a lot for this present

Debbie said...

Loved it! Thanks for the help on level 12. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Bart!

Thanks, that did the trick!

And thanks Unknown for the key to level 12!

Anonymous said...

Must be an idiot. i STILL cannot get 12. Even reading all the hints.

Bart said...

Thanks everyone for your kind words about the game!
I just put a new version online with one very small update: now you can also press the 'r' key to reset a level. Cheers!

Anonymous said...

Finished! I think that's one of the first games that I didn't look for a walkthrough :)

tam said...

Yeah!!! I finished it, struggling all by myself, yuppie!!!

Yu-chan said...

Sorry, but I didn't like it as I like Sugar Sugar, the escapes and the Factory Balls =(

Loved it! Merry x-mas and Happy New Year

Hey Bart, congrats, another amazing and clever one for Xmas, I'm so happy to have done all (12th is tough indeed, but when you find it you'll through the 13th easy. 14 and 15 are terrible too). BEST WISHES

Anonymous said...

Once I figured out 12, then 13 & 14 seemed easy. Now stuck on 15...

Bali said...

Really Good ! except 12,soooooo hard ^^

Sometimes difficult to see perfectly the place to be and the real blocks... too much green for me or too much time in front of my computer...

Big thanks and seasons greetings Bart !

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the walkthrough video. I was stuck on level 8. And i'ts not verry fun to do only half game. Barts last game i onley did 32 levels. Somtime i is best for me to look a video walkthrough. I hate when i can't finish a game. But now i am on again.. :-)

Zimmers said...

Merry Christmas Bart! Thanks for the games.

Anonymous said...

Yes, done. I had a little help in level 8-12, I lost patience and looked at the walkthrough. Thanks Bart for a nice game. :-) s

Gwenda said...

Thanks Bart! Have given up for now; have to go to work tomorrow :-/
But I will definitely plays on tomorrow!
I love these kinds of puzzles!

Merry Christmas!

Lizzie! said...

Yay! Got to level 14 yesterday, gave up...came back today...and finished! Yay! Merry Christmas, Bart! Thanks for all the great games, and for keeping my brain sharp! I really enjoy your blog, and appreciate all the games you share with us room escapers!

Burnt Ice Cream said...

FINALLY! Finished one of your puzzles w/o a walkthrough! Merry Christmas Bart! Thanks!

joanananana said...

hey this is cool lvl 12 is hard good job bonte

PaleRose said...

My brain...is fried. Why do I make myself play these tricky games RIGHT before I go to sleep? (to tire myself out even more perhaps?)

Well, it worked! 16 levels done in 45 minutes without a walkthrough!!! YEEESSS!! I feel complete! And exhausted!

I felt so stupid when the solutions were so simple and yet I couldn't even see them; I was just doing and not thinking. Although lvl 12 was a toughy, it didn't get to me as much as lvl 15 and 16 did! Anyways, GREAT GAME BART! I love it! I want more of it (in the future)! And now, time to go to bed. :)

Anonymous said...
