Factory Balls Christmas Edition

Factory Balls Christmas Edition has all of the fun and challenge of the regular series combined with a heartwarming and less stressful touch of the holiday season. In it you'll find Santa hats, belts, suspenders, earmuffs, and bobble hats (along with several colors of paint) to recreate various decorations on a Christmas tree. And for those who are not celebrating this particular holiday, it's still a fantastic, challenging, and amusing game to play

Factory Balls Christmas Edition Walkthrough

General Information

  • The object is to perfectly recreate the patterns given to you.

  • The easiest way to do this is to work from the top down.

  • The tools (as named by me in this walkthrough) are, clockwise from the colors: top Santa hat, bottom Santa hat, wide belt, suspender, right earmuff, left earmuff, small bobble hat, large bobble hat.

  • If you mess up, drag the ball to the trash, this will turn it white and you can start over.

  • Remember when using multiple tools: belt and suspender go on before hats, and hats go on before earmuffs.

Done them all. Last one was horrible but easy to fix if you went wrong. (I'd dread to think how cruel it would be if they didn't have the upside-down christmas hat)

Much as I love factoryballs, I'd like to echo
"If there is a minor niggle about the game, it is in the rigid and precise order in which you have to use the tools..."
Over, and over, and over again. This cannot be said enough.

grinnyp, your walkthrough leaves me in the dark at level 11, where it says:

•Drag to the blue paint them remove all tools.

Just....HUH?

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

I needed the walkthrough for all of 16, most of 15, and the first step or two of the 3 before that.

I like that for MOST of them (excluding the ones with white parts), it was possible to fix if you screwed up.

5/5 for fun, difficulty (JUST challenging enough), and cuteness.

I like the option of the "mute music" button, but wish there had been a "mute sound" as well.

Factory Balls is fun and I'm glad they were able to put a holiday spin on it.

Auto1: I'm pretty sure that means...

Dip the ball in blue paint, then remove all the accessories (belt, suspender, Santa hat, etc.) that are currently on it.

Level 16 is just a joke, right? We're not REALLY supposed to make this...monster?

grinnyp:

I'm a bit confused by your instructions for level 11. You say:

  • Remove the bottom Santa hat and add the wide belt (leave the suspender on).

  • Drag to the yellow paint.

  • Put on the top Santa hat and drag to the orange paint.

  • Remove the top Santa hat, put on the wide belt and the top Santa hat, and drag to red.

I don't think you meant to say

put on Y, put on X, take off X, put on Y that's already there, and put X on again

but I can't quite figure out what you did mean to say.

Thanks!

I think it was just a typo, "them" instead of "then."

Actually level 16 is easier than it looks.

Hint:

Figure out the middle vertical stripe. Make sure you pay attention to the triangle cut out hats, and what colors will be covered when you put them on. Once you figure it out, keep the vertical belt on it at all times. After that the rest is easy to figure out. : D

Good luck!

One thing I wish Bonte would do is add hovertext for the colors. I like the strategy and order puzzles, but I can't really tell the difference between the yellow and orange without seeing them next to each other. The first time I did the last ball, I did the bottom as orange instead of yellow. I had no clue what I did wrong until I opened grinnyp's walkthrough and saw it was supposed to be yellow, not orange, on the bottom.

Parse: That would be a really good idea for color-blind people as well, I think.

Thank you Parse, I was failing to figure out why I wasn't getting some sort of dancing win screen.

And . . . Yay! FactoryBalls!

At some point, I started thinking it felt like dressing in layers and more layers to go out in the snow, then discovering you need to undress, then dressing up again, then going outside and deciding in ten minutes that it's too cold out with any amount of clothing on, then coming in and undressing, and having some cocoa, and thinking maybe with that cocoa you can take the cold, then dressing, and discovering the logical result of the cocoa, then . . .

Grinnyp, your explanation of Level 6 is incomplete. it only gets you half the ball.

Gosh, this takes WAY too long to load! I'm still waiting. Is anyone else having this problem?

I had problems telling the yellow from the orange too.

It also got annoying removing things in order and placing them back on and having to tweak things around since certain tools had to go over and not under items. I'd have liked a remove all button.

That said it was a fun Xmas diversion. I do love Factory Balls games. It's lovely to have a puzzle game I don't need a walkthrough for. I always find myself at the end wanting more levels which is the sign of a good game. I did love how it was made Xmas themed too.

This series. It is made of awesomeness.
Every new edition released is enough puzzle solving to fry the brain, and when he releases the next one, it's been long enough that it's always a pleasant surprise.
This made 10 minutes of my life happy.
