hoshi saga 1 [browser oldie]

Many games by prolific game designer Yoshio Ishii have been featured here on bontegames, so of course when talking about browser oldies there is no better candidate than the very first episode from 2007 of his star hunting puzzle series: hoshi saga 1. Can you still find the star in each of the scenes?

This one is very challenging.

AAAH! After all that time, level 12 is still rage inducing!

I cant figure out stage 21 for the life of me. I don't know what to do

or stage 23

Not sure about 21, but 23 swirl around the black spots

For 21, keep clicking until you hear a sound, and continue doing so. Although so far the only one I haven't been able to crack is 33...

Eltonno- wait until level 30

I cannot for the life of me figure out levels 33 and 35.

33 - Slice and dice... 35 - Patience...

Finished :-)

Eltonno said...

@Goldtoothfairy, actually didn't have any problem with that one. Finished everything (except 12 and the last one of course).

33 - wave your mouse over it vertically (no need to click or anything) eventually it will be sliced, 35 - turn on light for a while ( I think I left it for 1 minute, could work with less) then turn it off.

Get out of my head! I was just thinking about the nekogames!! My old link in my bookmarks was dead, though--just got a blank page.

I'm so sad, I thought it was a new Hoshi Saga when I saw the title... :(

Help, please! Looking for any suggestions or tips to solve the one where the top of the star bounces against the left side and shatters into tiny pieces. I think it is 12. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Level 33 - your cursor is kind of sharp, but not extra sharp. Might need to "do it" many times.

Level 35 - just bask in the light for a while, then shut your eyes, the answer will become clear

@anon asking about stage 12 (it's actually stage 11). if it crashes into the left side, try approaching it from the left side

Michael Ursitti said...

on 11, the top of the star is a lunar lander. hold for thrust, release for free fall. If you want to go right, thrust from a little (not to much) to the left. If you can land on the top, you can inch it in place with short clicks.

I can't figure out Level 18...

I used to have all of these in a favourites folder on my old computer, I loved them but some levels drove me completely insane as you needed to be so quick with a mouse! Thanks for the reminder, I still love the games and yes some levels still drive me nuts, level 11/12 the one where you trace a star and avoid the spikes, ohhh that was frustrating as well as level 29!

You know, Bart, your game "Factory Balls, Christmas" is basically one long Hoshi Saga level...
