PsychotronicPerfect Balance: New TrialsHave you been wandering around in a haze since the first Perfect Balance, your heart crying out for the opportunity to wedge more things together? Do you miss the wedging like a starving shark misses bluefish? Have you taken to stuffing kittens in pickle jars, just to stop the cravings? Are your hands covered with scratch marks? Then Perfect Balance: New Trials is here to offer you sweet, sweet, soul-crushing relief, in the form of 30 more levels of tough block-stacking.

Like in the first game, you play by selecting shapes from the menu at the top of the screen with the mouse, then placing them somewhere on the screen where they won't immediately fall into the abyss. TAKE NOTE: You can rotate blocks with the keyboard, using either the [Arrow Keys] or [A] and [D]. One welcome new feature lets you return a block to the menu if you change your mind about it.

I can't honestly say that this is a soothing experience, despite the (sarcastic) sounds of waves and birdies in the background, but I can recommend it as a method of teaching yourself to handle stress. If you can handle this, then staying cool during an avalanche should be a slice of pie. Just remember what the game tells you: RELAX! TAKE A DEEP BREATH! RELAX! RELAX! TAKE A DEEP BREATH! RELAX!

I was informed that New Trials is NOT a sequel to the first, but an additional set of stages to play on.

Wow... Much more challenging than the original. It definitely picks up where the first one left off!

Excellent, like the original. Got really around 23, and I got stuck on 25. Maybe I'll complete it later.

Wow, this is um embarrassing, but I got kinda stuck on level 2!

I mean, I had a solution, but because the game won't call it good until all motion stops I just sat there and watched the time dwindle while my construction employed the kind of perpetual motion that would make any physicist jealous. It would be nice if this had a time limit to fall like Super Stacker.

Ah well, I shall go and give it another shot tomorrow.

Also stuck on 25. Any tips?

I figured out 25:

Use the crosses horizontally

Ignore the round peg

One not-very-stable column

Arrange like this:
--+--
O O
--+--
O O
--+--

Oh, I forgot to mention, on 25 (if you've read all the other clues so far):

Stack two crosses, then force the two balls in quickly. Wait a moment for everything to stop vibrating. Stack the next cross,, then wedge in those balls.

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

alternate solution for 25

use the crosses vertically, by placing the bottom cross's base on the square, the next on the first ones left arm, and the third on the seconds left arm, the third will have to be done quickly, as it starts falling as soon as you place the second. when the falls, it hits the circle, and maintains its own structure, then just place the balls on the crosses.
it may not sound clear, so here's a pic of the finished level.

Not sure if you are supposed to be able to do this but I thought it was cool.

I know what you mean Kyle. I got to level four and had the same thing happen to me. One of the pieces was in a position where it wasn't going to fall, but it was moving. I just sat there until the time ran out and then I had to reset.

A timer would be good. Especially as there are probably several solutions to some levels.

haha, Adam, yes, I see what you did there. I don't know. I complain, but I really don't count the lack of a time limit against the game, it's just one of the things that sets it apart from other stackers. When they said perfect balance, they meant it.

It just means it's that much harder.

What I really need to do is do this on a computer with a mouse. Usually I reserve games that require significant mouse action for my work computer, but this game's on Kongregate which is firewalled at work, so that means I have to suck it up and use *gulp* my wife's computer!

Level 15 solution

Put the blue and purple legs with foot pointing outwards on sides of base. Then the green shape on top, looks like a man.
Make him hold Big yellow on the side and fill with balls.

useful trick:

it seems to let you wedge things in where they shouldn't fit! this is level 9

I wedged the cross in, then thought I'd try the ball anyway, and it let me! so then I tried another ball.. http://picasaweb.google.com/sheepgomeep/DropBox#5314943417472628690

oops, sorry, that was level 8. also

it only lets you wedge things between the grey shapes that are there when you start the level, if you try it with the coloured ones they get forced out and fall off

OK help with Level 26 needed.

So far I can get 3 of the 4 discs balanced but not the last one

I balance the X and the L at the bottom and then insert the bar offset between them. I can then balance 3 of the 4 discs up the side on top of each other but the fourth one always falls off.

It's not responding to me. I keep on trying to do the first level and it won't register that I did it. I've let it sit completely through the timer and have tried multiple positions. It can't still be shifting, can it? Or is it just screwed up for me?

Wow, I just got to level 26 without even knowing you could use A and D to rotate the pieces.

So I went through 25 levels without using that feature ONCE!

That has to be some sort of special achievement. Lol.

No matter where I put the circle piece it seems to roll really, really, really slowly so it won't let me continue.

Maybe I'm just stacking 'em wrong...

Anyone have any hints?

Okay, this is completely cheating, but on level 19 you can

stack shapes INSIDE of the bottom right-hand "solid" area. I crammed 4 circles in there. You can also stack shapes about half-way down on the left-hand side, at the corner.

Anybody know a "real" way to beat it?

Level 13

The trick to beating this one is remembering that you can "squeeze" pieces in between other pieces. Here's my solution:
http://s5.tinypic.com/2qibmuc.jpg

Put the grey piece on first. But you'll never get the red bar to stay that way on its own, but the orange one will. So place the orange piece first, and then use it to keep the red piece wedged.

I somehow doubt this is the real solution to level 14:

This is what happened when a piece fell off and I panicked. I'm still surprised it worked.

So what's the real solution?

The way of solving 17 thats shown is no good. Put the triangle upside down on top, then rest the red on the down facing sides

In level 26, how put the red piece between yellow cross and Grey L

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

Here is my solution to Perfect Balance 26.

x,the second LARGEST circle, then wedge in the straight block so that it buldges out to the left. That should give you a nice big ledge. Then put the L on top of it so that it is laying on its back and a little over the left hand edge as well. Start stacking your circles here, smallest to largest. And you're done!

jaywalkar your level 29 trick worked for me as well. I didn't even notice there was a wall to the left!

For level 30:

I balanced a square on the right and allowed it to overbalance then when it was in just the right place wedged a straight bar in. After that - childsplay!
