Nice nice nice, but I'm afraid I'm already stuck on level 3

Pop! Got it! At first I thought it involved timing when dropping, but no timing at all,
pure puzzling, love this one!

Emily said...

oi. Hard before, hard now. Stuck on level 3

Level 3: bring left hand all the way right and then up same height as the wall, so you can push the heart with right hand over left hand, then push with left hand to the left until above other heart and then pull left hand back.

Emily said...

Thanks! Now I'm stuck on level 5

Aha, you can pull the hands back! (thanks for the hint!)

Doesn't seem to load for me.

It's working for me now. I think there was a problem with the ad earlier.

Anyone have an idea of how many levels there are? Or some way to describe when you're getting close?

how do solve level 11?

Tom said...

This game seems to require a different way of thinking than most games, which I find refreshing.

It does, however, seem to be missing the usual "level select" menu that most games of this sort have. I tried going back, to look at an earlier level, and as far as I can tell doing so locked me out of the levels after the one I returned to, forcing me to replay them to regain the level I was at. This seems like a major flaw to me, unless I somehow missed something.

Tom said...

Oops, I just looked again, and you can skip forward or backward using the arrows at the top of the screen, but only after going through the first title page level, which is what threw me off.

Finished after several tries! Fun game!

Stuck on level 17 (I think)...

Emily said...

Level 11: (spoiler) Using your right hand, push the bottom gear to the left until it touches the heart. Retract the hand. Using your left hand, push the top gear down to the floor, and push it all the way to the left with your right hand. With the left hand, push the upper heart to the right one space. With the right hand, push the heart down to the floor, then (with the same hand) push it to the right to touch the other heart.

Emily said...

Stuck on 17 too

Love is tough for sure.

For level 17
Move bottom gear to align with top falling gear. With gears stacked, move top heart to fall to make a stack of 3. Push the middle gear to have 2 gears horizontally together. With left hand, push heart to the right. With right hand, push the upper right heart off the ledge.
