A smart little game.
If I could undo shots it would be fun, but otherwise I find having to restart levels over and over to be not fun inducing.
What on Earth am I supposed to be doing on level 1? Knock the swinging ball from the chain?
If I understand correctly, you're still at the title screen, and that's not a level :). You have to press "play", and then you'll be taken to the actual first level.
You'll also need to know that
The entrance to the secret levels is behind that hanging ball. There are 5 of them, and they're actually pretty easy and fun.
Nice little game - challenging puzzles. Would like to see a sequel.
@Corona - to get the secret level green star, you have to click on the color green in the 'O' on the start screen to change the color of the ball green, then get the star.
Stuck on level 19.
The big red ball moves too fast to get the green one in front of it, and I can't seem to knock the green ball back hard enough on the top to go that way.
How I did 19
Let the big red ball just start rolling, then hit it with the yellow ball. If you hit it too soon, you will knock it off the back side and have to restart. If you hit it just right, it will roll back slightly, slow to a stop, and then start rolling down the ramp. This will give you just barely enough time to finish the level.
To finish, as soon as the yellow ball lands back in the cannon, shoot it down, left, then up into the red cannon.
Once you have a red ball in the red cannon, shoot through the big red ball into the cannon that you started in.
By this time the green ball should be just above you. Shoot it to bounce it over the short wall into the green block.
If you do all of this quickly enough, it should drop down just before the big red ball makes it to the edge.
As soon as the green ball makes it into the cannon at the bottom right, be ready to shoot the star before the big red ball gets in your way.
How the heck do you complete level 7? (I'm hoping the power of posting will help me out here...)
Okay, it totally did.
I have no idea what happened, but while I was writing, EVERYTHING CHANGED!!!
Can anyone else hear the theme song from Postman Pat in the background music?
@ Itt: Thanks. It took a few tries, but I was eventually able to get it. It takes precision timing.
Sorry andrew, your hints aren't helping at all. No idea how to get past 7.
@ Rangeet Choudhury
Level 7 goes like this:
Shoot the ball into the upper pod. When it's there, it will start changing its size, so make sure you shoot when it's at the max size. Shoot it towards the green ball. The green ball can't reach the star, but it will (with a bit of luck and precision) fall into the lower pod. From there you shoot it into the upper pod, and then towards the star.
Stuck on #20, now.
Never mind, power of posting.
#22, on the other hand...
Sylocat, on Lvl 22 ...
Pop the blue ball into the cart. Shoot the yellow underneath the blue into the left-hand pocket. Then hit the blue ball in the cart. It'll give it enough momentum to place the blue in the right-hand pocket. Then it's a straight shot.
The final level seems to be impossible...
Never mind, power of posting.
Stuck on second to last level. My timing is horrendous. Great game and the music is awesome.
Simple rules and a lot of varieties in levels…this is a great game! I like the music, too.
For those who want to see solutions to the 27 main levels, there is an official video walkthrough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihgs9VxQHxo
I solved level 13 in a very different way from the official walkthrough. Here is the modified version of level 13 that requires what I did. Load the following level code in the level editor to play.
(Since the level code is very long, make sure you copy all the letters and no newlines at the beginning. The end of this level code should read
completed without a walkthrough.. wooo...hooo!!!
