I'm dowloading it right now! I can't wait to begin :D

EDIT: Anyone else playing? You're only allowed 3 skips per journey. If you use them all you can't progress any further.

I'm at "The Beggining" and have skipped:
4 - The tips aren't helping me on this one.
11 - Is it after a 4 or 2 letter word?
16 - The obvious answer isn't working!!!
27 - I thought my calculation was correct (but obviously not).

Any help on these will be largely appreciated :D

EDIT2: Finally worked out 4 and 16!

Just downloaded.... working through the practice levels now. :)

EDIT: Stuck on 11 of the beginning.... don't want to use my skips too early. :S

elle
06-22-2009, 14:12:12
Made some slight progress. Now stuck on 11, 27, 29 and 33 :S

EDIT: Found 33 and now stuck on 44 instead.

Crimsonthread
06-22-2009, 16:53:47
Remind me what 11 was? I figured that one out, but my memory's not so good.

elle
06-22-2009, 23:19:58
11 is the one with the letters ED in the foreground and the shadow in the background.

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 03:19:38
Oh! I thought that one was earlier on... had to skip it, as well as 17... :S

18 makes no sense to me. EDIT: Got that one.

elle
06-23-2009, 06:41:07
UPDATE: Still stuck on 11 and 27. Also stuck on 44 and 45 :(

@ Crimsonthread

Concentrate on the moving object.

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 07:13:23
Worked it out in paint just a bit ago, thanks! Was looking everywhere BUT there. Now I'm just stuck on 11 and 27, too.

Got a hint on 27, but haven't worked it out yet.

Hey, if you skip a level and later come back and finish it, do you get that skip back?

elle
06-23-2009, 07:17:34
Here you go :D

Yes you do get that skip back ;)

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 07:19:57
:haha: Just found the same thing.

EDIT: Got 27... it says to translate to something other than letters FIRST....

elle
06-23-2009, 07:29:19
I did that and performed some c*lc**t****. Obviously it needs something else for an answer.

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 07:32:18
PM me what you've got... have you tried any letters yet?The dashes are just separators, not math symbols.

Fern
06-23-2009, 07:36:20
On 11 the shadowed thing can be two other letters, but it isn't helping me either.

elle
06-23-2009, 07:37:26
Oh of course. My mistake was to remain with the n******. I got it. Thx :hug2:

Welcome Fern. Exactly! Have no clue what they want on 11 :S

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 07:43:43
:hug2:

I'm off to bed... stuck a bit on 33, but I think it's lack of sleep getting to me... leave me a tip if either of you get it, in case that's not my problem.:P

Good luck, guys!

EDIT: OMG... I got 11. Answer is 2 letters.... not the foreground. Now I'm really off to bed. :)

elle
06-23-2009, 07:48:55
Found out their equivalent numbers.
Goodnight Crimsonthread :night:

Figured that, I'm just not sure what the equivalents are. :haha: I'll give it a better shot tomorrow.

Did you see my edit above? :D

elle
06-23-2009, 07:59:42
Yes I did. Great work Crimson :D Got it!

Bigger hint for 33

Separate your v***** from your c********.

Fern
06-23-2009, 08:24:34
11 was odd... wasn't utterly logical.
44 is crazy, I think I'll skip it.
:yel: at 49: the tips confused me even more. The word + that device ???

elle
06-23-2009, 10:56:17
Have you figured out 45 yet?

Fern
06-23-2009, 12:01:36
Have you figured out 45 yet?
The one with the numbers? You have to type not the s****est, but the b****** one you see.
I'm stuck with 44, 49, 56 and now on 65. Game over.

elle
06-23-2009, 12:11:14
I did figure it out. I just had to be quick :P

I'm stuck on 44, 49, 52 and now I'm working on my way up from 54.

Now onto 56.

Fern
06-23-2009, 12:22:45
Just found 44. Click like an idiot around 100,264 115,279
Thank you Elle, I got 56.
Ah, finally got 65.

elle
06-23-2009, 15:11:37
UPDATE: Stuck on
44 - Those coordinates don't work for me :'(
49 - Still struggling with the burning question.
65 - Ran out of ideas what to give as an answer
67 - Calculated the value but obviously it's wrong

49 & 67: Detto. At 67 I I never get an integer, what's more it's endless number. :bur2:
65: Have you found the thing in the blue box?

elle
06-23-2009, 15:40:15
Thanks Fern, got 65 :)

It's getting late and my brain is not functioning properly. I think I should go and have a rest and continue afresh tomorrow :night:

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 15:53:38
You guys have progressed quite a bit! I'm back here working on 34.... any hints? EDIT: Got it. :)

Fern
06-23-2009, 17:31:20
OK stopped at 98 - seems boring Google.
Stucked with
93 - skipped, I was always extremely lame with these kind of games... :(
67- cherry picking (result doesn't work with any of interpretations)
49- the burning one

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 18:16:50
For 49, you know what's behind the fire, right?

Can I get a hint on 43--the one with all the yellow lines?

Fern
06-23-2009, 18:36:05

If I remember correctly and it's the microbiology level, move a bit away from your screen and/or squint.

49: yes, just can't find a connection between the burning word and the device. :iq:

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 18:59:26
Think of a popular type of the object... not LCD, not CRT...

I'll try that on 43... my eyes don't like it, though. I'm also stuck on 44 and 56.

EDIT: Got 43, thanks!

Thanks a lot Crimsonthread!!! :hug2: Got it, though I still don't get the connection between the answer and the word, I'll read about it in Wiki later. :)

If you need hint for 44/56 I can send you a pm, I can't really hint those here.

Crimsonthread
06-23-2009, 19:20:59
I don't honestly get 49, either, but I had a good guess. Yes, please PM me for both of them... I'm clicking like crazy on 44, but I'm not sure I'm in the right place.

EDIT: Now stuck on 67, 68, and 72... 72's going to give me a migraine. :S

elle
06-23-2009, 23:27:29
Hey guys I'm back :hi2:

I feel dumb but I just can't think of an oil corporation with two X's :$

Also stuck hopelessly on 80 - the one with the notes!

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 00:42:47
Not sure that they have this company in your country.... It starts with an E.

Not to 80 yet, so I can't help you there. I'm still stuck on the levels listed above. :S

EDIT: Figured out 67, with a big hint from the WOA forums... it makes no sense, though. PM me with what you've tried for the hint.

elle
06-24-2009, 03:15:11
Thx Crimson. Your hint + googling got me the answer for 70 :D

A sentence with 3 words starting with G, T and J.
Currently stuck on: 67, 68, 80 and 84!

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 03:57:43
Can I get a hint for 77? I know to look at shapes/attributes, but I'm not linking that with the numbers. :/

Got it!

For 80: When played, what do those things give you? 2 different words.

Currently stuck on 68, 78, 82, and 84.

EDIT: Got 78 and 84. :)Have you tried inverting the colors?

elle
06-24-2009, 07:00:47
I can't recall 77. Can you be more descriptive or PM me a screenshot?

Your hint for 80 was just what I needed :hug2:

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 07:09:36
No problem! I got help on it, too... (as I do with most levels, in fact!)

Got 77 a while back. :) Stuck on 68, 82, 85 and 87 now.

Off to bed... good luck! :)

elle
06-24-2009, 07:14:23
Keep on adding your numbers.

Fern
06-24-2009, 10:02:37
106 is extremely irritating. So many approximate measures, it's impossible to get an exact result.
And as proportion, should we take Jupiter and Europa, or the circles on the pic? Just because J:E=45,5; bigcircle:smallcircle=4,3-4,5; not to mention that it's impossible to tell Jupiter's radius, even the equitorial and polar r is different, J and E's proportion is VERY approximate.
And what is 28,000? The area of the circle? Or its circumference or whatever is the English word?
I get so easily frustrated when I have to operate with APPROX. measures. A little difference changes to whole result. :bur2:

Edit: Finished The journey. Skipped 67, 93, 106.
Still a bit frustrated about 106.

elle
06-24-2009, 13:42:33
I'm having trouble with 68, 85, 87 and haven't made it passed 97 :S

EDIT: Got 87 and 97!

@ Fern - if you manage to solve the puzzle for 93 it will give you a word. If you need help with that PM me.

EDIT2: Stuck and need help with 68, 85, 98 and 99.

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 15:34:43
Elle, I don't quite get your hint about 82... What do I add? The numbers on the screen? And then what do I do with them? I know it has to do with some code, but I haven't been able to find out which one.

And can I get a hint on 87? :D

Fern

Thanks, maybe I solve 93 some day, I hate such games. :P

I can't remember what was 68, but the answer is a 2-digit #.
85 is a nightmare. I suggest you to restart that level over and over to catch the moment when all the bars are in a column under each other.
For 98 use the Wiki times. One or two changed in Beijing, so take the current 2nd for those. 100, 200, 400
99 is a n***** too, but can't remember the level...

87 isn't a reasonable English word, but I forgot what the level was, could you send a screenie?
82: have you found the sequence? (L**** numbers)

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 18:10:58
Figured out 87 (and on my own!! :D), and got 68 with sheer brute force. :haha:

I've found the sequence on 82, but it's not making any sense to me. :S

On 85, I've got a SS with them all lined up, but it's not revealing anything different... :S

One of the bars has it.

There are couple of levels when brute force is quicker than thinking. I got a few one-letter answers like that. :evilSMILE:

Crimsonthread
06-24-2009, 21:45:25

99 is 21 cells vol 2.... any hints there? :S

Fern
06-25-2009, 12:33:56
Just realized that we can check each level again with the Single level button... :$
If still needed:
3^2=9
12^3=1728

Finished The Maze, skipped 2, it was easier than the Beginning - had some brute force moments though. :sumo:

Do we just need those events? Do I add them when I have them?

Also, I still can't figure out 82, beyond the code they hint at... not sure how to get letters.

Glad to hear that the Maze is easier! :D

Fern

Yes.

843 is the 14th L**** number for example ---> 14th letter of alphabet
At least for me seemed it's easier. But now I'm pathetically struggling in the Brainstorm... :hlp:

Crimsonthread
06-25-2009, 22:28:08
Got 82. :) The numbers I have for 98 don't add up to the correct answer, though... Can I PM you what I have?


OOH!! A solution to 93 can be found on wikipedia seach Lights Out

Currently stuck on 98, 100, 106 and 109. So close.....

Thank you, thank you, thank you! :panda2: I would never have the patience to figure it out by myself.


Currently stuck on 98, 100, 106 and 109. So close.....
At 100 just search more.
I skipped 106. So many approximate values, I don't know how on earth is this solvable.
Photoshop is the best for 109 imo.
http://megapoxy.net/pics/measure.jpg

I'm stuck in the Brainstorm.
13 - absolute and total cluelessness Edit: found it by trial and error.
16 - my eyes are popped out but still nothing Edit: got this one. I always play with speakers off so my bad.
21 - super-duper confused
And there are only 2 skips, so I must figure out at least one to move on. :'(

Crimsonthread
06-26-2009, 12:19:48
For 109, it's not width?

Fern
06-26-2009, 14:43:49

Oh sorry, you're absolutely right. I'll correct my pic to not mislead others.

I presume you don't need it anymore, but anyways:
Have a look at the Finnish keyboard again. Both the numbers, and the number of numbers follow a pattern.
Be careful when writing down the colors, some of them are easy to miss 'cause you hardly touch them.
What you see is decimal, convert to ASCII but don't add what's in parenthesis, it just denotes it's a two-digit number. The rest is very common PH stuff.

Crimsonthread

I bet on 72 only your last letter is incorrect. Once you have the word, ye olde sdrawkcab. :)

I guess I brute forced 92 - not much time. Use letters.

Crimsonthread
07-01-2009, 06:01:41
Got 92 with brute force, too, but worked out why it's right. :) Also figured out 72--had the next to last letter wrong.

Now I'm stuck on 91, 96, and 97. I'm not good with exponential relationships.

EDIT: Finished the Maze. :)

Neuromaniacs is REALLY TOUGH... :mad: I dremt with one of the levels this night. And there are 1 skips and 4 tips altogether, and you don't gain any bonus tips. I start over after every three levels.

For Brainstorm, I'm stuck on 12... I found "12" and "18," but I'm not sure what the third number is. I thought it was the number between "12" and "18," but that's not working for me...

And on 16.... I hear an odd noise from time to time, but I don't know what to do about it.

####+####*## = ?

I'm thinking on quitting now, so close to the goal, but this level I'm stuck atm is so annoying, it admittedly requires you to brute force a 130 character string with a few hundred possibilities. I'm so frustrated with this mindless guessing. :'(

Crimsonthread
07-05-2009, 01:37:44
That's ridiculous!! Maybe I should quit now, too. Levels 21 and 22 on Brainstorm are confusing me, and if I have so much trouble now... what about later levels? :S

elle
07-05-2009, 01:52:31

Levels won't get necessarily harder as you progress. Some of them are ridiculously easy, others are insane. Here's an example of the extremely useful tips on Neuromaniacs: Trial and error is the only method to get clarity on some of the content. :rofl-smilie:
For example, 21 is crazy. You better forget the yellow blocks, and concentrate only to the middle 3 boxes. You don't need +,-,*.

Try to strech out 52 vertically, it helped for me.
At 55 you get Finnish word, so don't be afraid if you get odd letters. 2x20=tt
For 81 try http://anagram-solver.utsire.com/, all letters together.

I skipped 37. As far as I know everyone skipped that. :P
You are probably overthinking 59 - bigger than a supermarket but smaller than a shopping mall. :) Though I have a feeling that maybe this word is not used as often in the US than in Europe, but I'm not sure.

56 is a VERY rough number, so don't worry, you won't get more hits than in 2006. :)

Hi
I'm New in here and it has been awhile since I downloaded this game but I have not played the game that much... but I just started playing againg and now I'm stuck on lvl 11.... I honestly can't figure out what the answer is.... I gathered as much that is must be a two letter word and it is the grey letters I have to look at but for the life of me I can't figure out what the two letters should be???????????????????? Please help, thanks:bee:

I'm dowloading it right now! I can't wait to begin :D

EDIT: Anyone else playing? You're only allowed 3 skips per journey. If you use them all you can't progress any further.

I'm at "The Beggining" and have skipped:
4 - The tips aren't helping me on this one.
11 - Is it after a 4 or 2 letter word?
16 - The obvious answer isn't working!!!
27 - I thought my calculation was correct (but obviously not).

Any help on these will be largely appreciated :D

EDIT2: Finally worked out 4 and 16!

i will give you the answers to the ones you need help with, please send me a PM!

Seems this game is gone. I am going to move it to broken links.
