THIS IS WAY TOO HARD FOR US, BUT WE REALIZE THAT A LOT OF YOU ARE A LOT SMARTER THAN WE ARE, AND IF YOU WANT TO ENHANCE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY FOR THE REST OF THE DAY, FAR BE IT FROM US TO STAND IN THE WAY

So, here.

(Thanks to Gil Graybill)

Thanks BradK! I even had a prism leftover that time.

Okay, I finally found the level 19 answer. Unfortunately, it ends with hitting a bomb at the end. Apparently, this is still a valid solution.

***Spoiler Hints***

Use a splitter after the first light to hit the five lights in a row. On the left, use the prism before the last light to turn southwest. Then use mirrors to create a loop that catches all four of these lights.

On the right side, turn south, then use the other splitter in the midst of the three lights. Careful of the beam that now turns west into a bomb. Use a mirror to turn north, then a mirror to turn west into the last light (and the bomb.)

This can't be the intended solution, since it doesn't even use the double mirror as anything but a normal mirror.

Amit and surfbunny -

*** The secret on 19 ***

Level 19 is solved by going through a splitter to pick up the 5 horizontal lights.

The beam going to the right picks up all but one light. Turn it down to pick up one, split it to pick up two more. The left propagating beam will hit a prism and two mirrors to pick up three lights.

You should have three mirrors lefts to hit the topmost light. Don't try to get there with the beam that went to the right on the first split. Use the beam that went to the left.

Whoops - I guess my solution is different though. And it's ok to be different because I'm _special_ ;)

I am completely confused by 18, and I didn't understand the answer Stoli gave. Help! :(

Clay's solution to 19 doesn't hit the bomb at the end, so it must be better;). Good job. The double mirror still seems superfluous. (I've been waiting weeks to use that word.)

thanks for the help on 19 everyone...after that torment, 20 & 21 seemed too easy!

22 on the other hand is like 19 only worse...I can't make it work...ideas?

I'd like to second surfbunny. I'm totally stuck on 22.

Brad,

More detail is needed on 25. I got all the way through 22 on my own, then when I got stumped on 23 I was missing a part of the solution, you folks helped out there, then 24 I got through, but now 25 is getting me again.

I think I've just run out of brain-power.

Damn you to hell Jet - I was already stuck on 25 and you give me 3 more levels? Are you some kind of sadistic whaco or something?

Jet24m, thanks for the instructions, finally managesd to solve it. BTW you mixed up your lefts and rights so I still had to use my brain (a little) ;)

Jared - I don't think it's a valid puzzle. It looks weird to me and I don't think it's right...so I'm more wacko than sadistic at this point.

Amit - glad it worked out. Sorry about the left vs. right thing - I had an ear infection and it's making everything a little off right now. It's probably why I still can't solve 25. It's the last puzzle. Help!!!

So I worked on level 19 so long yesterday I thought I was going to cry. Today, I figured it out in about ten minutes and blew through the rest of the levels in a few hours.

It's a bit distressing how much difference a good night's sleep, caffiene levels, etc can effect your brain.

Anyway, I couldn't get it to take my "Congratulation" comment. Oh well.

so now the page won't even load. did we break it?

The new web site appears to be a joke. Maybe someone else can make out the trick.

The password to level 26 is "boss". There are two lasers - each of which is on a bomb. Any move I make ends the game.

Nevermind.

I think that there may be some sort of bug. When I used my own password, I was able to get a different representation of level 26 than the one I got by beating level 25.

There are still two lasers, but only one is on a bomb. If you block that one, you can beat the level.

Jared, Amit has the same solution I got in the JPEG.

Jet, I looked at the new site w/28 levels. 26 seems impossible, there are two laser sources pointing directly at bombs. As soon as you click anything the bombs blow. Do you know how to begin?

The new site appears to be unstable. I get several different puzzles as I move up and down through the levels. Many of the upper levels are immediately impossible. I don't intend to waste my time. I mean, more of my time. That is, on this particular website. There, I feel better now.

The additional level are obviously a joke. I got one level with two lasers both of them hitting a bomb in the next square itself!

About level 18:
Password to go to 19 is "ccd"

I'll give some help on 18 as well, but I won't write up how to do it 100%

1. Refractor should be the first thing the beam hits, placed one square northeast of the laser.

2. One T-junction is used one square southeast of the northernmost bomb.

3. The other T-junction is used one square northeast of the southernmost lightbulb and should have the pointy entrance-end to the northwest.

4. All pieces are used


-----

With that said.. I'm stuck for about a day now on 26, which has no hints.. as for the bomb that the beam hits, it can be broken by placing whatever piece right in front of the beam, but I still wonder if this level is incomplete or something.. it seems impossible to me. I managed to get all the bulbs but one with a few different solutions, but can't for the life of me figure the whole thing out. Leaning towards this being an incomplete or joke level since there aren't any hints either.

Also, as far as getting 'different levels'.. it seems to be a bug. If you reload the .swf, and enter the proper code, you will get a working one. I ran into that a few times.

oh yeah forgot this part...

its possible to solve level 25 and 21 without using all pieces. Not sure if that's a bug or not heh...
Here are codes, starting at level 10

svga
os/2
tcp/ip
ascii
input
io
cdrw
dma
csma
ccp
sdsc
ps/2
rambus
acpi
ide
firewire
boss

phew! Managed level 26 after a few minutes of tinkering today. That one was hard but fun =) password to 27 is "Magic"

anyone know answer to lvl 26?

Last but not least, pwd to level 28 is "yeh"
Have fun, and tell me if you get the solution... I'm going crazy
