First

Easy one

Thank you Bart!

Helen said...

No idea how these can be easy, I have never done one without a walkthrough and the same goes for this one! Clues/hints are just sometimes not logical or obvious enough for my liking and if one thing puts me off a game it's opening a new window and watching a walkthrough. I do like some of the puzzles in this like the picture you do twice, connecting the card symbols etc. but it's just too difficult for me.

Yes. This one was pretty straight forward. I did get stuck on the "R" puzzle for a bit as I omitted the second step since I figured each figurine would only be counted once. Other than that, it is nice to have an easy one once in awhile. Thanks Bart.

I like tomatea games, but some of their puzzles are just not straightforward enough for me. I had to use a walkthrough for this one.

A bit fiddly in places but done - took far too long to line that head up!

a typical tomatea - nice optics but still sth to improve - imo some hints aren't precisely enough (the "R" for example - I got the hint but had a hell to find out how precisely it was meant to be)

veewee said...

so far so good on this one for me...but I'm missing one of the 8 picture cards! no idea where to find it..=(
I also haven't figured out yet what I'm supposed to do with the lamp clue..

I'm so confused. All I have is 5 picture pieces. A white, yellow, and blue marker. I know I have to figure out the shape clue but I think I'm missing something.

nvm! got it! I feel dumb for overlooking that..

Tom said...

The only part that gave me trouble was the R puzzle. There were a lot of different ways to interpret it, and the ones I thought of first were different from the intended interpretation. The rest of it was straightforward.

have problems with chrome - didn't recognize thethe suit puzzle as finished (the one with hears, clubs, etc).
only been able to do it with ie...

Matteic said...

Either I'm getting better, or these games are getting easier. Had the same problem than JGo3000 with the R (not sure a same figurine could be used twice) and had to really insist to get the puzzle piece behind the focalize puzzle (door view) ; also hesitated a bit with the coloring (4 triangles and not 3). Apart from that, pretty easy once you get used to tomatea.

I had to use a walkthrough for the left/right buttons on the red cabinet panel. I gathered that the six red and yellow figurines on the wall (maybe plus the one inside the yellow cabinet panel??) are the clue. But I still can't see the significance of the letter R with the arrow in it. Does the arrow tell us which direction to read the figurines? What puzzle the clue is for (i.e, the panel above the one with the R)? If the arrow means "this clue is for the panel above", then what does the R mean? And how would we know to include the figurine inside the cabinet, and whether it's first, last, or in the middle of the others?

The rest was enjoyable and logical, but this one set of clues might as well not have been there, because they were useless.

If I'm missing something - please enlighten me!!

Tim said...

Jaymar - look at the 6 figurines, and then follow the path you'd use if you were writing the R in one unbroken line beginning as shown in the cabinet. Seemed straightforward to me, but I'm not finding the rest as easy as y'all did.

jaymar said...

Aha! Thank you, Tim. That changes it from "useless" to "I missed it"!

I think maybe the game is not working correctly for me. The four suits puzzle, I have solved completely, but the game never recognizes that I have solved it, and I cannot figure out anything else to do to proceed from that point. So far as I can determine, there is no second, equally correct solution to the suits puzzle that maybe it would recognize. I really am not sure what to do next.

Phred said...

Update: I just played the game all the way through on Chrome (my primary browser is Firefox and that's what I'd been using last time) and it recognized immediately when I completed the four suits puzzle. So the game may have some incompatibility with Firefox.

Emily said...

Out!
Stuck for the longest time because I didn't realize the rainbow thing was a puzzle!

AltoFronto said...

I had no problem solving this up until I had 7 puzzle pieces - I just could not find the 8th piece because I hadn't focused the mannequin picture correctly.

After that, it was mostly easy (had to look up what colour the boat should be, though).

I really like these artist-themed puzzles. :)

Solved this one pretty easily, and then my students in my middle school seminar class solved it even faster (though I am able to nudge them in the right direction if they get stuck.) I love using these games to hone their critical thinking and power of observation skills. =) Thanks, Bart.
