Walkthrough for AVSG2:

Level 1:

Click the frowny face

Level 2:

Click the one that isn't jumping

Level 3:

Click the one with an extra dot above it's eye

Level 4:

Click the one that is bouncing out of sync with the others

Level 5:

Click the one whose forehead symbol is spinning the opposite direction of all the rest

Level 6:

Click the one whose innermost forehead circle is spinning at a different speed than the other faces

Level 7:

Click the one that never stops bouncing

Level 8:

Click the one whose flowers have 5 petals, rather than 4

Level 9:

Click the one with the Star Trek sideburns (pointy, that is). This also ties in with the in-game hint. (thanks, LS and ruufy!)

Level 10:

Click the one that shoots out both white and orange dots from it's head.

Walkthrough for AVSG1:

I suggest you clean your monitor screen before starting.

  1. Yellow

    The spot is directly below the middle individual (We're all individuals!)

  2. Green

    The spot is directly below the 3rd chap from the left (chap being used in a gender-neutral way, what-ho!)

  3. Blue

    Look at the three fellows bouncing up and down in a row, the dot is near where the 3rd one from the left lands, slightly to his/her right ("fellows" being used in the sense of "peers" or "colleagues", rather than to indicate gender).

  4. Red

    Look at the second stationary row down, the dot is near the place where the 3rd one from the left is sitting on, slightly to the right.

  5. Purple

    See the bouncy purple creature right in the middle of all the other bouncing creatures? The tiny purple dot is almost hidden in his/her shadow.

  6. Pink

    Cartoon conventions indicate these characters are female. (Pink, have eyelashes.) The female (cartoon conventions used here don't indicate whether these characters are Women or Girls) with the pink dot is the second one from the left, in the lowest stationary pair down. The dot is almost hidden in her shadow. Helps if you try to click it when the others are in their bouncing up state.

  7. Black

    This dot moves around. One place it is seen is in the left "armpit" (his/her left, not yours) of the left-most stationary character (your left, not his/hers). It is there for a rather short time. A longer appearance of the black dot is made on the mouth of the right-most character in the stationary row of three. (I apologise for any offence the homeo-centric term "armpit" may have caused to creatures with fin-like appendages.)

  8. Brown

    A similarly moving dot. Look at the top row. The dot appears during some bouncy cycles just left of where the left one lands, for longer periods on the left edge (your left, not his/hers) of the middle one, and sometimes hidden in the shadow of the right one. Pick the one that is easiest for you to click. There are no right or wrong answers, we respect that everyone has the right to his/her own choice.

  9. Orange

    A veritable sea of sunshiny faces! Nice to see you all here. Thank you for coming. We have another moving dot to find. If I could direct the audience's attention to the top-left stationary being, a dot very close in color to its surroundings appears briefly, very close to the being's left cheek (his/her left, not yours). Fortunately, the dot reappears for a longer period elsewhere. If you could shift your gaze to the stationary being in the dead-centre (no offence to the undead I'm sure). He/she is in a diagonal row of three stationary beings. The dot appears touching where the outlines of this being, and the next in the row, meet.

  10. White

    There are at least two places where the dot puts in a appearance. Imagine all of the characters in their stationary/resting positions. The right-most one in the middle row has a dot appear at times on the outline of his/her left jaw (his/her left, not yours). If your cannot see this, as many with various vision deficiencies (sorry, differences) may not, the dot also appears on the character 2nd from the left, in the top row (ignore the solitary top and bottom bouncers for now). It is near the lower left of his/her mouth (his/her left, not yours), like a beauty spot (beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and remember it is only skin deep). I have one such myself. You can occasionally see it more clearly where the bottom solitary bouncer rises to his/her highest position. This rare sighting occurs less than once per bounce cycle, so be patient and steady in your attempts to detect it. If you have seen it once, you know where to click as it re-appears and disappears in a less obvious manner.

I thank you all for your indulgence.

That was tough, but I managed to finish with 3 lives. For the last couple of levels I had to watch them for quite a long time.

This is a beautiful little game. I love the concept, the hints are perfect, and the music is wonderful. Absolutely charming!

The music is lovely, and doesn't get too annoying with repetition, which so much game music suffers from! Love the game concept, and it's TOUGH! One thing which is annoying on some levels is how much of the smilies you CAN'T see, which makes it difficult to know if they're different or not, and you just sit there hoping the difference is somewhere you have a clear view of.

How about some spoiler tags for that walkthrough? Some of us haven't beaten it yet.

[Oops. Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't realize the spoiler tags were misspelled when I approved the comment. Fixed. -Jay]

Where's the review page for the original A Very Simple Game? I can't find it with a site search, and I'm stuck on the pink level.

[It doesn't have one, we never featured it. Feel free to use this page for a walkthrough or questions about it. -Jay]

I'm not sure that Level 9 one is correct; I

waited until all but one had been lit up and clicked, and it was wrong

However

one of them has pointier sideburns than the others -- more horn than triangle, if that makes sense

I think this game may promote discriminatory behaviours (not just racism).

For Level 9, I think LS is correct on this one, the odd one out is

the one with the Star Trek sideburns (pointy, that is). This also ties in with the in-game hint.

[Thanks! I've updated the walkthrough. -Jay]

Wow, the sound track for the ending credits took me straight back to 8th grade. I had a math teacher that insisted that peaceful, relaxing music helped students learn better, so put on that exact song, CELESTIAL SODA POP. I will never, ever, ever forget it and its catchy synth pop... thing.

Funny where you'll find things like that.

(btw, 8th grade was... ohhhhh, going on 25 years ago 0.0)
