Advertising is clearly the tool of satan. As such it occasionally supplies us with empty delights to ear and eye and other less tangiable senses, like succubi would once delight mediaeval peasants. Dyson Vacuum Cleaners, curse their corrupt heretic hearts, have made a sinful and devilishly clever hell-fruit puzzle game with loads of beastly levels, purely to snare the unwary into the bottomless pit. Will you serve the bidding of the lord of the morning?

BTW I'm stuck on level 21 of the regular game. Help!

Hey that's pretty fun.

Did you figure out level 21, SB?

Scabrous Birdseed
20-10-2003, 19:32:55
No. Dammit.

Scabrous Birdseed
20-10-2003, 19:39:29
Now I did.

Sean
20-10-2003, 19:56:04
Oh, duh. I can’t believe that took me so long.

21? Did it first time mate.

18 :cry:

Immortal Wombat
20-10-2003, 20:36:28
Oh. Somehow I managed to get it, but one minute later I can't remember how. I did it asleep.

I'm stuck on it too. When you do it let me know. Hmm.

I can't even fathom how it's supposed to work.

Scabrous Birdseed
20-10-2003, 20:44:17
Oh that one is quite easy.

fp
20-10-2003, 20:49:32
Good to hear it. I'm still stumped.

Scabrous Birdseed
20-10-2003, 21:02:27
The solution involves... forward thinking.

Sean
20-10-2003, 21:04:35
Thanks dudes, doing that one again made me realise how to do level 25.

Not really sure how to give a hint without giving the game away, sadly.

Scabrous Birdseed
20-10-2003, 21:18:12
Yeah, I also just finished 25 after playing 18 again. 25 is basically 18 three times... :D

How about this as a clue for 18: half a dozen or so levels back you were introduced to the idea of moving telescopes before the ball arrives. Now, think of what complex positions you can achieve with multiple such moves...

Sean
20-10-2003, 21:44:58
OK, how do you even get started on Grand Master level 5?

Immortal Wombat
20-10-2003, 22:00:39
Not much you can do except the right way

Sean
20-10-2003, 22:05:01
No, I find it quite easy to go round in circles.

Sean
20-10-2003, 22:07:40
Ah, got it now.

Immortal Wombat
20-10-2003, 23:02:37
Oops, wrong one. I can't do GM1

Darkstar

Very Fun. Thanks!

Best game of the week for ages. I did the first 24 levels before getting bored. :)

Drekkus
21-10-2003, 10:39:02
I got stuck at level 3.

Of failure?

Right, if anyone’s still playing: GM 10. How the fuck do you get into the same column (any row) as the yellow telescope?

Funkodrom
21-10-2003, 19:07:08
Actually Eastenders was on...

I did the last level and all the CLIC ones today. I borrowed my parents dyson the other day. That telescope thing is awesome. It's a real "don't fuck with me" hoover.

Immortal Wombat
22-10-2003, 21:13:40
GM2 now. one per day is not good enough :bash:

Sean
22-10-2003, 21:25:55
I have completed it all :cool:.

Where are you stuck on GM2?

Immortal Wombat
22-10-2003, 21:41:31
bottom right hand corner. I can't get it to go upwards.

Sean
22-10-2003, 21:44:55
Ah, that’s a red herring. You want to be using the two central green telescopes.

Immortal Wombat
22-10-2003, 21:47:13
yeah, that makes it a lot easier. :D

I agree

Sean
22-10-2003, 22:40:11
:p

You want to use the blue one to block the yellow one, not the other way around.

Sean
22-10-2003, 22:46:50
Oh, and I went back to look at level 21. Got stuck again :lol:. Please give me a hint.

Immortal Wombat
22-10-2003, 22:50:13
Yeah, I got it. GM7 now. Must finish tonight...

21: The yellow one SW of the ball's starting point doesn't (have to) move. Only one does a double-journey twice.

Immortal Wombat
26-10-2003, 02:01:44
aaaaaah, finished. And it only cost me several hours of my life.

I was proud over my 14 levels until I read the rest of the thread. :(
