Me and the Key


DoraMe and the KeyI don't know about you, but I'm sick of rescuing princesses. And villages? They never stay un-pillaged! And don't even get me started on alien hordes…! I work and I slave, and what thanks do I get? End credits! Maybe, if I'm lucky, a scoreboard I can enter my name on for a whole ten minutes before someone better knocks it off. Yeah, I guess you could say I'm a little tired of the effort outweighing the reward. Fortunately for you and me, my friend, Bart Bonte knows that at the end of the day, sometimes the simplest rewards are the sweetest. And that's where Me and the Key comes in and tends to my fevered brow with a series of charming logic puzzles and one very simple goal.

Me and the Key is a series of mini-games that all have the same end — getting the titular key. That's right. There's no zombies, no spaceships, no power-ups. Just you and a slowly evolving set of puzzles designed to test your common sense, and your ability to think outside the box. Most of them can be completed in under a minute once you figure out what you should be doing, and for the most part all you have to do is point and click. It's impossible to really paint yourself into a corner, so you can feel free to experiment. Sometimes the solution is as simple as playing an old arcade classic, and sometimes you'll need to make a tree grow so you can harvest its luscious tangerines. Just like at my old job!

Me and the KeyAnalysis: Those of you looking for high-res graphics and orchestral soundtracks may find yourselves disappointed. Like its concept, Me and the Key's visuals are simple, incorporating bright, round graphics and adorable design. While this keeps the interface clean and easy to navigate, the endlessly repeating background tune isn't nearly as endearing. The bubble-gum-pop quality of the music is cute for the first five minutes, but you may find yourself thankful for the mute button before long.

But Me and the Key is a success where it sets out to be one. The puzzles, while frequently obscure at first glance, are often exceedingly easy once you figure out what you're intended to do. A few feature mild tests of your reflexes, but most are well-designed adventures in logic. Often when I thought I was stuck, I realised I was over-thinking the game and missing the more obvious solutions. It's like being put into an empty room and trying every elaborate scheme you can think of to escape, only to find the door was never locked at all. Only one or two puzzles had me honestly furrowing my brow and wishing for a walkthrough. Oh penguin, why do your eyes haunt me so?

Me and the Key saves your progress, so you can attack each of its bite-sized challenges on your own time. It doesn't have a lot of replay value, but it fits neatly into your lunch break… or the time between memos when your boss is out of the office. If you're looking for some quick, quirky satisfaction, do yourself a favour and pick up Bonte's newest title. A key may not seem like the greatest reward you could wish for, but the smug feeling you'll get at solving this series of abstract little puzzles will stay with you long after you close the browser.

  25. Hit the paddles 99 times. If the ball goes, you have to start again. Very tricky, unless you hit the sweet spot where the ball only goes vertically up and down, and you don't have to do anything.

  26. Click the keyhole. An alien will look at you, and then let you in.

I think I might like this game, review coming soon.

it was all smooth sailing for me up until 19

Same here - Level 19 has me stuck.

level 19:

uses a button not on the keyboard

Stuck on level 25, with my thinkpad eraser nub mouse I am impressed with myself, but 25 is just not going to happen right now.

nvm. Post and solve magic at its finest!

for level 19

What sort of things could have to do with the word in the thought bubble?

anything on your keyboard, or your mouse?

right click the game window and click "key"

I too am stuck on 19
I tried:

right
"right"
the right arrow
right on the number pad
>

got 19

how many right buttons do you have. Try them all

if that doesnt help, the answer is

right click

Finished! Kind of short, but really fun.

Cool. Game is short, but not too short. Intuitive but also challenging. The last level could have been more thought out but it did provide for a feeling of accomplishment when I beat it. 4.5/5.

Sorry for the double post - I just wanted to add that I loved the game after having finished. it was a very charming diversion.

got 19 from Birdieball's second hint now I am wondering if i should attempt 25. I think not.

Oof, just beat it! There's something about Bonte games that I just always enjoy, even if they don't have the "polish" some games have.

My only complaint was the last level felt too long. A little stressful after a fairly calm, enjoyable game.

All-in-all, I really enjoyed this one.

I feel a bit dim, but 14? I can't figure it out. (The one where your mouse controls how the tree bends.)

I did manage 25 on the second attempt. Keep the ball vertical. I was able to hit a sweet spot where I didn't need to move my mouse to keep it bouncing.

ruffienne
think about how you would get a piece of fruit out of the top of a tree.

Level 19 Soulution

Why not use the right button of your mouse?

There we are! Thank you. (I thought I'd done that, but... not enough, I guess!) Amazing response time, too. :) Thanks!

Seems like a good game, but seriously? A whole review and comment thread and no mention of Hoshi Saga? This is basically the english version of the same game...

I had no trouble with any of these up until 24 (which I eventually got after several tries) and 25 (which is just a pain. Going up to 50 I could see, 99 is just way too long, especially given the pace of everything else.)

I got LUCKY on 25.

I managed to get the ball lined up pixel perfect with the top and bottom paddles, so it just bounced up and down perfectly.

I was afraid I would lose focus, but that was REALLY lucky.

i can't get past fifteen.

Level 13 was the hardest for me so far. I'm not very good with Breakout games.

Currently on 20.

I know I sound random, but doesn't that blob look sorta like the blob in a movie?

lvl
15

Grrrr...

help?

DARN YOU EVIL BLUE PENGUIN-DUCK-THINGS!!!
YOU SHALL NOT DEFEAT ME!!!

but seriously though, please help me with lvl 15

i'm stuck on 15..help anyone?

any hints on 18

hooray for the sweet spot on level 25!

Ruffiene:
Level 14 is a bit tricky. You have to

Shake the tree. You may have already tried this. You need to SHAKE it. Shake it like your life depends on it. Shake it harder, better, faster, stronger. Eventually the key will fall out.

I am so disappointed in Bart Bronte. Level 13 is absolutely impossible with this laptop mouse. This game went from fresh to trash in an instant when I figured out the level is literally impossible for me.

Ah, level 27 is hard. I finally figured it out, you have to

burn the rope...

lol, nah just kidding, I'm stuck on 15.

For anyone troubling over 15:

If you hover over a penguin, then move your cursor slowly onto the orange, do you notice something happen? And then if you move off it? Does that give you an idea of what needs to be done?

I gave up on Lvl 25, way too hard on a trackpad. I might have a go at it later with a mouse and see if that makes a difference.
The penguins/ducks are cute, the levels with them have made me smile... so far...

How do you do level 11

Great game. Different from the usual run of the mill.
Level 15 - cause it did my head in

Pop one penguin up and trace orange line to second one. Move off line and you start again

I'm tellin' ya, this game is cruel toward a laptop mouse. On 22, and not sure I'll ever get past it.

Uh, guys?

I'm on Level 19, playing on FF 3.0.8, and

the right mouse button doesn't work. It gives you options for "Settings" and "About Adobe Flashplayer 10", but that's it -- and clicking on the word "key" only closes the right-click menu

Love Bart's games, but this seems to be a bug -- but I don't know whether it's at his end or at FFs.

Anyone getting difficulties on level 25? Here's how I did it

I managed to do the trick by ignoring the side pads. Just imagine hitting a pingpong ball between two pads, or like another breakout game where you have to keep the ball away from the walls with two pads.

I got it from the second time, fearing that the ball could bounce to my useless side pads!

JustMe:

I'm using the same version of FireFox, and that part works fine for me. Just right-click and choose "key!" and you're done.

Perhaps another track pad problem--ideas from those who have made it past 20 with a track pad?

I have broken the glass, but no matter what I do, the key is never clickable.

I must be missing something obvious on 15:

I figured out I needed to touch the penguin and trace the orange path to the other penguin, but now I just have two penguins popped up and staring at me. If I click anywhere else, the penguins drop down, so how do I get the key?

A couple of hints for some of the more dexterity based puzzles:

Rope puzzles

Hold the left mouse button down once you get the key in view. With the left mouse button down, the rope won't move even if you take the cursor off the rope, so you can just go ahead and hold the button, move your cursor over the key, and do a quick double click to get it before it slips through your fingers.

Maze puzzles

Right click. Try and get everything on the left hand side first, and then position your cursor as far to the right of the path as you can without reseting the puzzle. Now right click. This should make a bridge using the command promp over to the right hand paths. You can now move off to the right using the command prompt instead of the paths which should make things a lot easier.

I did this using a real mouse, but I assume these things could make this game MUCH easier with a trackpad!

Good luck

I agree with Skaramuche: the review could have been waaaaay shorter.
"Me and the Key is Bart Bonte's take on the concept behind Hoshi Saga" would have been sufficient for me to shout "YEAH!"

I have a trackpad and I beat it! Yay!

25

isn't too bad as long as you keep it as vertical as possible. If it's too far to the right/left, hit it the ball a little left/right of the middle to keep it from hitting the side paddles.

I'm glad I was finally able to do a whole game on my own, even one that others had trouble with. Makes me not feel so bad about not being able to beat ANY of the room escape games (yes, even the super easy ones where the jerk walkthru giver tells you to be ashamed if you need it).

I've now tried level 13 (second Breakout level) with both a trackpad and a standard mouse and I see no difference in how unpleasantly hard it is. Over and over again I finally break through the top layer of bricks only to lose the ball one or two bounces later and have to start all over again. Sure, I'm probably just terrible at Breakout, but it's very disappointing that it's impossible to advance without doing this over and over and over and over again. I like Bonte games for the interesting logic side of things, not for manual dexterity challenges. Infuriating!

This was another fun little game from Bonte. My only complaint was that it was a little too short and easy, but I think that's what he's going for in his creations.

I'd really like to see more games in this "find the key/star" vein, like this one and the Hoshi Saga series!

" Any computer game should be played with a regular mouse. -Pam"

I do wish the editors would stop leaving slightly snide comments about the use of trackpads to play games. This is, I think, the third one I've seen. Yes, we know, mice are better for playing computer games. And yes, it's not necessarily fair to blame the developer because a game is harder with a trackpad. (Having said that, I completed this game with a trackpad. Try adjusting your settings, Antikythera)

But really, "any computer game"? Sure, if you're talking about Team Fortress 2, or Counterstrike, or Doom, or Portal, or any other serious game then yes, you'd be bonkers to play it with a trackpad. But the vast majority of casual games do not in fact require a real mouse. I should know - I've been perusing this site for a couple of years now and in that time I have only had a trackpad. Very few casual flash games are impossible with a trackpad, and quite right too.

The ones that are almost never have the courtesy to mention it at the beginning of the game, meaning that you get halfway through and realise that you're going to have to go and dig the mouse out to continue. And most of the time, casual games being what they are, it's not worth it. So I think it is a valid criticism to say that in a puzzle game like this one (or, heaven preserve us, Kagi Nochi Tobira, level 17) it rather ruins the experience to get to a point and realise the reason you can't continue is not because your brain is not up to it, but because your hardware isn't. I don't think developers should go out of their way to accommodate trackpad users, but equally it's a fair criticism of a game to say "this mouse reflex test ruined the experience for me."

Sigh, I wish there was a way to skip a level if need be so you could at least experience subsequent levels. :( I too am on a laptop and just can't get past 13.

Xixen - I agree Pam's comment could have been worded better than it was, but I do support the point she was trying to make.

It's been a pet peeve of mine over the years maintaining this site to read complaints from people trying to use an interface device for which a game was not designed.

Trackpads are a device of convenience used in laptops to support their portability.

If trackpads were a superior input device to a mouse, you would see desktop users ditching their mouse for a trackpad. This just doesn't happen.

While I feel it is fair criticism for someone to say "this mouse reflex test ruined the experience for me," I feel it is unfair to the developer to say "this game is poorly designed because I can't play it on a trackpad."

Re: the breakout issue, trackpad or mouse, it's still an unfair level of difficulty to have exactly one life and need to start all over again if you lose the ball.

Trackpad aside (on a MacBook Air where frankly, the trackpad does better work than the mouse at this point at least from experience), I managed the game well enough.

Found the second level of breakout relatively easy, managing it on my third try. The last level, with the ball, I admit was an evil, evil level but after quite a few tries (lost count, who really does care though?) I managed to hit the 'magic' spot and just moved my hand away, watching the ball do its job without my help.

Overall, good game, as I have come to expect of Bonte games, and will play it again, on the other laptop tonight, with the use of the proper, good mouse and see if it's really any different.

Went back, cleared the cache, restarted the game, and nada. I get exactly the same result with a

right-click as I did before -- I get settings, and About Flash Player. There isn't an option for Key...there are only two options when I right click, and Key isn't one of them.

Bummer of a bug somewhere in the system, because it renders the game unplayable at or above this level.

Love Bart's games, hate that I can't play them.

Thanks for your response Jay, and I do agree that people shouldn't rail against developers for not making things trackpad accessible. Nor do I think that a trackpad is in anyway a superior input device to a mouse. As it happens, I have a macbook with a very good, very sensitive trackpad, which is why I don't find it hard to play most casual games with it. I understand how annoying it must be to have people complaining because they failed to read what was needed to play the game; I'm not sure that this is an example of that, as it's not generally a problem to play games like this with a trackpad, and there was nothing in the review to suggest it would be an issue. Antikythera's comment wasn't very well expressed, but I just felt the response was unnecessarily snide given the circumstances.

I'm sorry if my comment came across as rude or as suggesting that developers should aim their games towards trackpad users. The wording of Pam's comment just rubbed me rather the wrong way, especially as it was put in as an mod comment rather than a normal reply. A good mouse is a massively superior input device for gaming with, but a good trackpad is perfectly acceptable for a lot of casual gaming, and I resented the implication that trying to use my standard input device made me an idiot. I guess I got a little carried away in my response, probably took it a little too personally! If I caused any offence, I apologise for that.

On a more positive note, I don't think I've ever mentioned that this site is probably the best I've come across for finding good, well made casual games for a range of ability levels. Generally speaking, your contributors are very good about mentioning accessibility issues, and I didn't intend to attack Dora in any way for what was a good review of a fun little game.

P.S. I've been having a few problems with the Captchas on this site recently. I always have to refresh the page to enter it, because the first one never seems to work, even when it's definitely correctly entered. Is this a problem at my end, do you think?

on level 24 i do the same thing as on level 15 but even when i have all the aliens up *i think they look like penguins XD* i have no key, why?

Pure cute puzzles brought right down to their base form: the point isn't on what the key opens, but the trickiness of getting to the key itself. Doors? Who need's 'em?

Yeah, I have a hard time doing minutely exact or reflex-based things with a trackpad, but usually timed tricks with precision cursory tends to detract from the usual pointy-clickety experience. I did have a mouse, and levels 8 and 9 had such short windows of opportunity that they were less about figuring things out and more about waiting to click on- ugh, more waiting.

Still, the cuteness and catchy music just about made up for it. The pause feature's helpful too, so you can leave and return if you get frustrated on one part (or are writing about it in between levels)

If whoever makes rubber duckies were to make penguins, the little guys in this game would be the result. But unfortunately, rubber penguins doesn't sound quite as catchy.

I beat this game without one spoiler hardest games ive ever played! very very very very...........hard! what now?

I love fun little games that aren't too hard, but still pose a little bit of a challenge. I used a tablet except for the last level, so I didn't have any problems with dexterity puzzles at all. The only issue I had was that the .swf was initially blocked by my ad-block, but everything else was fine! I especially liked the idea with the tree and those clickable bouncing balls.

Hmm, I tried today and yesterday, but I can't get the game to load. It takes me to the website, but the screen is black. tried refreshing and reloading. any ideas on how to fix it?

Just the kind of game I'm so hideously fond of... quick to load, un-fancy graphics, and a good brain-rub.
And penguins never goes out of style ;)

NOT (I repeat) NOT A CASUAL GAME ........ More a game that will drive you insane. I really resent this!!!!!

I did it with no help from anyone... yay me! Fun little games amuse me. Nice review.

Trackpad functional or not, I think this game was way too easy. So easy it bordered on pointlessness.

Despite what others say this is very much a casual game, and I beat it with a trackpad. My mom had a lot of difficulty with the mouse, go figure. I had fun!

Lev 19 - it seems that right mouse button does not work under opera browser

Number 25 is extremely frustrating, and I lose my temper easily, which ruined this game for me. I had 2 hits left, and it went offscreen. I just lost my respect and patience for this game. Was going to give it a 5 out of 5, but because of that level, its down to a 2.

what i do on level 11?

Help. I'm on level 12.

I thought level 25 was really cheap, to be honest. (I was going to say it was a [blank] move, but this site is suitable for family viewing, right?) The game is advertised as an abstract puzzler on here, and really that's what Bonte is known for, so to have the ultimate level be an endurance test of BREAKOUT? That's ridiculous. It's not even a FUN version of Breakout. The paddles are tiny and twitchy, it's not any fun to look at, and the whole thing is tedious and frustrating.

The only reason I stuck it out is because Bonte usually has really cute and clever credits at the end of his games, such as Factory Balls. So when I finally, FINALLY, beat level 25, I was so happy to see Bonte's cute credits. AND THERE WEREN'T ANY.

I gave this one 1/5 because I was really that irritated and disappointed by the whole deal. It completely wiped out all the amusement I had gotten from the earlier levels and left me much more tense and frustrated than I had been before I started playing the game to relax.

I really like Bonte's games in general and will support his future endeavours, but this seemed like a bait-and-switch, and more importantly, it just was not fun for me.

Haha this game was fun.. only needed help on one.. but i got through it.. very fun tho

it was great for me until i got to number 15 then my mouse curser was to big for the line thickness

To Batrt: for lvl 19, right click works on my Opera browser...

everybodys stuck at a different lvl then me. can someone please tell me how to complete lvl 11

Can somebody please help?
I'm stuck on level 19.

I keep right clicking, but nothing happens, nothing comes up!

If anyone can help, that would be great.

anyone help with lvl 20?? i cant break the glass on a trackpad

I LOVE THIS GAME!!! BEST GAME EVER!!!
(well except for the evil tv rubber pengies on lvl. 22...)

Everyone is complaining about lvl. 25, but i liked it. It was challenging, sure, but as long as you

kept the ball going up and down,

easy as pie.
It took me one try.

(throws poupourri and confetti, dances around foolishly, knocks over mothers favorite lamp)

First time I've ever beaten ANY "hard" level in one try. But then again, when you have absolutely no social life (like me), you dont mind that 5 minutes of ponging.

Tried game with a trackpad first, beat it.
Tried game with a mouse later, still beat it.
Sorry if I'm raining on anyone's parade here, but there is no real difference.

sorry, sooze, but this IS a Casual Game, and one of the finest I have seen in some time.

Thank you JIG!!!
5/5

i do level 15 but it wont give me the key will someone plz help me

Nice little game, but I have to agree that the Breakout/Arkanoid levels were ridiculous. I mean, seriously? Breakout? Why? He didn't come up with it, he didn't reinvent it, he didn't improve it or comment on it or twist it in any way. Just a straight-up little rip-off of another game inside his own game.

But other than that, pretty good.

on level 10 i understand that you need to pull the rope to get the key but i pull it right to the bottom of the page and the key hasnt appeared! am i doing something wrong? please help!!

the last level is the most tricky,but i hit the sweet spot.i think that level is a patience trainer.......

i finished it :D
i got de perfect angle on 25, it kept boucning up and down :D

I really love Bonte games. Love 'em. That's why it pains me to give this a thumbs-down. Level 25 ruined it. I completed it because like some other folks, I found a sweet spot by luck. Otherwise, I wouldn't have finished the game.
I said it before and I'll say it again: Reflex games have many fans. But such devices do not belong in a game of this genre. I really feel it's cheap and lazy to resort to hand-eye coordination. It's as if the designer ran out of ideas.
A little is okay, but to make the player sustain it for a long time, like Level 25 here and the first Kagi Nochi Tobira, is just wrong.
That said, I still can't wait for Bonte's next release. While this was a bump in the road, they are normally terrific games.

I can't get past level 11. Please someone help me.

i got down to 4 on level 25... then lost it :(

LVL 15
ARRRG
it is so hard

i've clicked on one alien traced the orange line and got to the other alien, But nothing happened. Help me, please.

[Edit: Please do not use only capitols :), thanks, Kayleigh]

cant get past 18

Number 11 is really hard. Please someone help me, it's addictive!

[Edited by Jay]

Could someone help with level 20? D=

They were aliens? I seriously thought they were ordinary penguins!

They are penguins. Why some refer to them as aliens, I have no clue. LOL!

um i tried what you said to do for level 19 and IT DOESNT WORK !?!?!?!?!?!?! what do i dooooo???

the game was easy since my cousin helped me.

For level 19 press the right click button on the mouse

How do you do level 11? I'm really stuck!

lvl 25:: Hit the sweet spot... XD Nice game... lol I can't believe I hit the Sweet Spot!!!!

Some of the levels were a bit tougher than expected. Yes I'm using a trackpad, yes I read the other comments. But I must say, I'm pretty darn good with a trackpad, so if I'm having trouble with a trackpad then I'm pretty sure that other people could run into trouble with the mouse.

It would be nice if the breakout levels didn't reset the whole level when you mess up. Feels like it slows down the pace of the game a bit.

lvl 15

grrr please can someone give me the answer?

I can't do level 22 please help me this game is soo adicting and i really want to finish it. :D

is it just me, or is lvl 18 REALLY REALLY REALLY REAALLYYY hard??

any tips?

Really good game.

WOO HOO i beat a5 by right clicking then going to the orange line in front of the other penguin

level 25!!!!!

keep the mouse inside the box, turn of the music. keep it so that the sideways ones are always somewhere in the middle and try not to use them!

If you are stuck on level 22:

right click as soon as you see an alien appear on a tv, then double click it.

Why do some people keep calling them aliens? It's PLAIN to SEE they're PENGUINS!

I, for one, do NOT think this is a puzzle game. for the first 5 levels or so, it's actually puzzling, then it's barely puzzling at all, and after that it just goes into absurd tests of skill. I'm sorry, but this game just did NOT cut it. I'd rate this about 1/5.

What's the matter with that level 21? Please someone help me. I'm desperate.

I'm doing exactly what the walkthru says for level 9 but it doesn't seem to work with some of the screens...

OK, I got it now. Here's how the walkthru is not exact on level 9: it says:

When an alien appears on a TV screen, click it. It'll stay there.

What it should say is:

When an alien appears on a TV screen THAT YOUR CURSOR IS ALREADY HOVERING ABOVE, click it. It'll stay there.

That seems to make it bit of a guessing game, but no, since

the image keeps popping up on the same screen until you freeze it.

OK, here's my problem with this game:

I'm on level 16 now and basically there were two types of levels:

1.) Painfully simple no-brainers requiring a couple of clicks and beaten in a couple of seconds.

2.) Painfully simple no-brainers that are beaten in a tediously slow fashion.

Fankly, Bart has done a lot of games and they are usually much better than this. Factory Balls, for example is one of my alltime favourites. That was a good brain workout.

Um... I can't be the only one who is finding level 17 absolutely impossible? No matter what I do, I can't get them all lit before two of them crash into each other, they move too fast. Even with a mouse, I can't get it.

If you're on a Mac laptop and stuck on level 19, ctrl click might work because then the menu opens up like it does on desktops and Dells and stuff.

Sadly, I'm still on level 13. My frustration with my own inability is one reason why I'm saying this though I still believe it true: This level is neither innovative nor entertaining. Still, bg music helps..a little bit.

I cannot do level ten. I know you just pull the rope, but every time I do that, nothing happens. Help?

Got tired of trying to get through the second "Breakout" levels, so I can't say I like the game very much. It's sad, because this game could be so much fun if it didn't have those Breakout levels!

Stuck on level 8

How do you get past level 20? I need to know.

Level 17 is baffling me because of the balls

I need the answer to number 14 i think.. or 15.. or 16.. one of those. I can't find the answer anywhere!

i gave up at level 25.....

great game, got past last level second time (bounce bounce)

I'm dissapointed...Bonte games normally makes logic fun games...But level 13 is a skill game...(And yes i suck at breakout)

Hey, Owen thnx your comment on level 22 helped alot!

25 is easy. There is a spot where u can leave the mouse and the ball continues to bounce without touching the sides. Place the bottom square on the third stripe and the right square a bit above the middle. Then feel free too relax :D

i got stuck on 19 as well

Grrr... level 15 is so HARD!

I can't get past 19. It's to hard for me.

I'm on lvl 2, clicked all the balls and nothing? I even clicked them in the order that they fell. ARGH!

Stuck on level 5 feel so stupid!!!

Don't feel bad. I am stuck on level 5 too...lol..Reading everyone else comments about the high levels and I feel Slllllooooowwww..lol..someone help me with a hint please

Can someone help me with level 20?

Level 25: If you line your vertical paddles on ~ 2nd stripe on the left, then when you release the ball, it will rebound off the horizontal paddles straight onto the sweet spot where it goes back and forth : ) well, at least it did for me...

omg i am stuck on lvl 13

lvl 17 is evil

I HATE BREAKOUT.
Given up on level 13. I know I finished this one before...oh WELL.

I am stuck on level 22 with a laptop. any suggestions?

i tried level 25 like 100times and the last time i said i was going to give up i made it i was like yessssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i didn't use the side pads at all

Like many other commenters, I didn't like the breakout levels.

But more frustrating for me was level 22, with the tv penguins... I don't want to blame my trackpad, it's just my reflexes that make that level actually impossible.

I look for point-and-click games to be the ones that aren't reflex-based, and yet in what would have been otherwise a great and entertaining game, I can't get past a level because I don't click fast enough. Ugh.
