Score 463 through 075.

0772,4 scaleascending steps make upside 4-bl 5-bot 1-fl 2-fr 3-br
- Puzzle changes so this specific combination doesn't always work. I recorded the sound made by each of the 5 faces up, then identified each compared to a previous recorded ascending scale, then did the rotation steps in the correct order.
0781,2,4 matchfirst note Press any key and get the all-important target note. (I recorded it for easy playback and comparison in the future.) Key 1 lights. Press key 2 and get a start note. Go to the target note by stepping the start note up n times (fl face up) or down n times (fr face up). When the target note sounds, leave face fl or fr up, and press key 2 again (done with phase 2). This lights key 3. Continue... My winning round in detail:
- press 1, get note 4 (target), key 1 lights
- press 2, get note 5
- fr up, steps down 1 from note 5 to note 4 (target)
- press 2 (done), key 2 lights (progress)
- press 3, get note 2 (new starting note)
- fl up 2x, get note 4 (target)
- press 3 (done), key 3 lights (progress)
- press 4, get note 3 (new starting note)
- fl up, to step from note 3 to 4 (target)
- press 4 (done), key 4 lights (progress)
- press 5, get note 1 (new starting note)
- fl up 3x, to move from note 1 to 4 (target)
- press 5 (done), key 5 lights (WIN!)
0791,2,4 missingpress missing color Put each of the 4 sides and bot up. This names 5 colors, but one is duplicated and one is missing. Press the missing color. Repeat 4 more times.
0802,3,4 each side is 1 to 5on-off count Push any key, hear "shuffle". Try each side plus bot facing up. One will say a number from 1 to 5. Orient top up and in a dark room, shine a flashlight on (hear "whoop") then off (hear "umph") that number of times. Repeat whole process 4 more times.
0812,4 shhtilt to stop top up, wait for all 5 tones, low to high; bot(5) up (KEY: highest tone is missing), wait for 4 low to high tones; bl(4) up, wait for 3 low to high tones; br(3) up, wait for 2 low to high tones; fr(2) up, hear lowest tone; fl(1) up, WIN.
0821,2,4 rotate changes numbers1 through 5 with 1 button Once the puzzle starts, press key 1. Record the spoken number. Rotate fl up. Rotate top up. (This returns to starting position and changes the key definitions.) Press key 1. Record the spoken number. Repeat until 5 numbers are recorded, for example 51432. Since "2" was last spoken, (let r = fl up, top up) do this: rr1rrr1rrrr1rrrr1rrr1 voiced number: 1 2 3 4 5
0831,2,3 light triplescount 1 to 5 in dark room (L = light-dark), do 1 L 2 1 L 4 5. L triples the value voiced by each key, and redefines the key as the LS digit of the 3*n value:
14765 (pressing key 1 says "1")
32185 (pressing keys 2 1 say "2" "3")
96345 (pressing keys 4 5 say "4" "5")

0941,2,3,4,5 1 button triples plus 12 buttons divide if even The first button pressed provides a starting value of 1 2 3 4 or 5, or 10 20 30 40 50 if dark, or 100 200 300 400 500 if dark-light + rotate. Then ANY button does 3*x+1 and (if total so far is even), ANY two buttons divide by 2.

0971,2 two meanings for buttonsalternate digit and operation operations 1 through 5 are + * - / =, no precedence (i.e. 5*5+5*5 = 150, not 50).
53 = 5*5*2+3 (5 2 5 2 2 1 3)
67 = 4*4*4+3 (4 2 4 2 4 1 3)
59 = 4*4*4-5 (4 2 4 2 4 3 5)
15 = 3*5 (3 2 5)
62 = 4*4*4-2 (4 2 4 2 4 3 2)
- Sometimes an "=" (key 5) is needed at the end and sometimes not, for reasons I don't understand.
0981,2,5 chessboardpress together x,y pairs, buttons do x- x+ y- y+ (key 5 clicks, does nothing?)

1,1 -> 1,5 (4444)
1,1 -> 5,6 (2&4 2&4 2&4 2&4 4)
- Software defect? 1,1 -> 2,8 was attempted on a re-trial of this puzzle, as the 5th and final target. Pressing 2&4 444444 resulted in key 5 lighting momentarily (puzzle done) followed by a "fail" sound and the need to start the puzzle over. There is no way I can see to accomplish this in fewer steps.
0991,2 make map of boardgrid with walls Draw 5 8x8 grids, numbered left to right along the bottom 1 to 8, and bottom to top along the left 1 to 8. Coordinates are x,y = horizontal,vertical. Listen carefully to target position, since it doesn't seem to be repeatable. Buttons move until a wall is hit in directions 1)left 2)right 3)down 4)up 5)unused. Move around the grid keeping track of walls, and get to the destination. Do so 5 times (5 different "mazes".)
1,1 -> 5,2 via 42423
4,7 -> 3,1 via 423131423

1001,2 1 to 4 on compassdistance based on starting square Direction is the same as puzzle 99 -- 1)left 2)right 3)down 4)up 5)unused. Keep a grid like that below, with "-" meaning unexplored, "<n>" meaning a move from this cell in this direction results in a move of n cells, and "x" meaning "fail". I found this:

     -    -    -    -    -
 5  - -  - -  - -  - -  2 -
     -    -    -    -    2

     x    x    x    x    x
 4  x 4  - 2  x*x  2 x  3 x
     x    2    x    2    3

     x    -    1    x    x
 3  x*3  - 2  - 1  3*x  4*x
     x    -    1    x    x

     -    2    2    1    3
 2  - 2  - 2  - 2  1 1  3 x
     -    x    -    1    -

     3    3    2    2    2
 1  x 3  x 3  2 2  2 x  2 x
     x    x    x    x    x

     1    2    3    4    5
So the solution steps are:
1,1 -> 1,3 via 241
1,1 -> 3,1 via 2121
1,1 -> 4,2 via 42132
1,1 -> 5,5 via 2143224
1,1 -> 3,5 via 21432241

* Notice 1,3 4,3 5,3 and 3,4 should be avoided unless they are target cells, since further progress from them is impossible.
