Fun game. Level difficulty isn't incremental. After the first dozen which are way too easy, the difficulty of each level seemed random, from obviously simple to frustratingly difficult. Which isn't really a problem, just thought I'd leave a note about it to future players. If you get stuck on 15, that doesn't mean the next 20 levels are even more difficult.

I'm stuck on the last one. Anyone have a hint?

I swear to god I have to be the dumbest person ever. I cannot for the life of me figure out 27

Some levels have extra moves that are not needed or collected.
You will have to learn to cheat as well.
I also gave up on the last level.
I am sure it requires major reforming & timing as well.

Last level is one of the easiest. No cheat or special trick needed and you finish it with 1 extra CTRL collected.

Managed to finish the last level with two extra ctrls

If anyone out there would be willing to give me a hint for Lava Square 16/35, I'd appreciate it. I've been trying for a long time and my brain does not seem to be able to think outside of the box to solve this. Thanks.

Here's a hint for 16: You can copy more than just the floor blocks.

Thank you for this; figured that out the previous level or two, though.

I've been copying emptiness, too, but can't seem to wrap my brain around getting that to connect to my guy while cutting off the lava.

Maybe I'm just too dense.

just in case: the whole game area is 12x12, so make sure you're seeing it all

for 16: copy the whole 4x4 square of tiles, plus the row of blanks below it. So copy a 4x5 rectangle. then

*spoiler*

paste that 4x5 block exactly 3 rows up, no horizontal change

I humbly request hints/solution for #32. I've been stuck on this one for 2 days

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU to the Anonymous one who helped me with level 16!

I really, really appreciate you taking the time to explain it so clearly. Got it!

May all good things come your way!

Hints for #32:

Ignore the lava during the copy phase.

Choose a shape that is large enough to miss all but the last lava.

Don.t place the last lazy l till your ready to run.

I'm up to level 27 Urgent Rescue and I need a break. I don't remember how I did the first Rescue except that I left a key floating in space. Is there a way to see earlier levels without losing my progress? I didn't discover the Full Screen button, so I couldn't see the whole board, until I was up to level 14. (Would also appreciate level 27 hints)

Anonymous said...

Hint for #27: give up the left CTRL, focus on stoping the lava and collecting the rigth CTRL.
If you copy/paste the right shape, it would be just enough to finish.

Anonymous said...

How do you do the last level? I can't block both lava at the same time even if I collect the top key

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous 26july 17h52.

You don't have to collect the top key to reach the bottom ones. Just find the right path to copy to block all the lava.

Nim said...

Help! I really can't find how to blok all the three lava in the last level!

Anonymous said...

@Nim: found a 3x3 path.

XX.
.X.
.XX

And put it at the right place.

Nim said...

Wow, I feel really stupid when I see the solution ha ha
thanks a lot!!!!

Meblin said...

Any help for level 33 please?

Anonymous said...

@Meblin:

Spoil #33
Copy 1x2 path to join the 2 CTRL, copy it again to join the CTRL in the center. Then copy/paste the 4x1 path you have created to join the end.

Unknown said...

Now I'm stuck on 34, No Bridge. I can't copy the stepping stones without the spaces in between, then I get OUT OF CTRLS. I could do it if I had one more. Any hints please?
