#### Last updated April 29, 2002. Some puzzles involve randomization from user to user or game to game. The logic listed should always help, but specific solutions might not apply to your puzzle. Puzzles 1-34 were done Christmas Eve 2001, score 245. Puzzle 100 was completed January 1, 2002, score 608. I took both hints at the start of each puzzle. Puzzle 100 was completed February 10, 2002 (3rd time), score 1000. Defect: Game says "Your score is one-thousand and" followed by victory beeps. The "and" just hangs there with nothing spoken after it. Listen to the mp3 file (69k) now Strategy Tools (use <x> to solve the puzzle) 1: buttons 2: listen 3: light/dark 4: orientation 5: button pairs, or do something while a button is down Key: Puzzle; Strategy Tools; Hint 1; Hint 2; Notes Sides: fl=front-left, fr=front-right, bl=back-left, br=back-right, bot=bottom, top=top

Doesn't time out?

Score 463 through 075. 076 1,2,4 buttons choose prime is right for each not-top side up, a number is given. One number in each set of 5 is prime. When the prime-side is up, press 1. Repeat but press 2. Then ...3 ...4 ...5. 077 2,4 scale ascending 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. 078 1,2,4 match first 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!) 079 1,2,4 missing press 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. 080 2,3,4 each side is 1 to 5 on-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. 081 2,4 shh tilt 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. 082 1,2,4 rotate changes numbers 1 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 5 083 1,2,3 light triples count 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") 084 1,2 not numerical alphabetical five four one three two = 54132 085 1,5 2 buttons together 1&2 together, 5 times 086 1,5 together consecutive pairs 1&2 2&3 3&4 4&5 5&1 087 1,4,5 1 to 5 rotate up press (hold) 1, fl up, release, press 2, bot up, release, press 3, br up, release, press 4, top up, release, press 5, fr up, release 088 3,4,5 while dark rotate make light-to-dark transition, then make upside = fl bot fr top br 089 1,3,4,5 5 to 1 rotate while dark in a dark room ( = , found by trial and error -- pattern not apparent to me...): p5, fr up, fl up (key 1 lights), r5 p4, fr up, top up (key 2 lights), r4 p3, fl up, bot up (key 3 lights), r3 p2, br up, bl up (key 4 lights), r2 p1, top up, fr up (WIN) r1 090 1,5 4 buttons all but mixed one 4 per press, leaving out 1 2 3 4 5 091 1,3,4,5 all choices 2 or 3 together pairs/triples of Strategy Tools: p1 p2 (key 1 lights) r1 r2; Stategies 1,5 dark-light, fl up (key 2 lights); Strategies 3,4 p5, top up (key 3 lights), r5; Strategies 4,5 p5, dark (key 4 lights), r5, light; Strategies 3,5 dark, p1, fl up (win); Strategies 3,5,4 092 1,2 spell backward alphabetical cry, Jupiter, each, buttons, shuffle; ehrsy = 53241 (Words change from game to game; sort whatever is spoken in alphabetical order considering each word spelled backwards.) 093 1,2,3,4,5 match number dark or rotate while pressing light, top up, and the 5 keys add 1 2 3 4 5 to total; dark, they add 10 20 30 40 50; dark + rotate, and they add 100 200 300 400 500 to the total; start from light and top up before each term being added to the sum; 6 key presses max; add up to the target number, 5 times 094 1,2,3,4,5 1 button triples plus 1 2 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. 25=3*8+1 8=(3*5+1)/2 (51 1&2 1, or 50/2 -> dark 5 1&2) 148=3*49+1 49=3*16+1, 16=3*5+1 (5111) 553=3*184+1 184=3*61+1 61=3*20+1 (dark 2111) 70=3*23+1 23=(3*61+1)/2/2/2 61=3*20+1 (dark 211 1&2 1&2 1&2 1) 226=(3*301+1)/2/2 301=3*100+1 (dark-light rotate 1 1 1 1&2 1&2) 095 1,2,3,4,5 multiply enter product use earlier methods to enter large numbers (return to light and top up after each entry): 6x4x3 = 72 (dark 5 dark 2 2) 1x6x1 = 6 (5 1) 8x6x4 = 192 (dark rotate 1 dark 5 dark 4 2) 3x4x7 = 84 ... 2x7x3 = 42 ... 096 1 answer changes cycle through start where previous set ends; 51234 45123 34512 23451 12345 097 1,2 two meanings for buttons alternate 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. 098 1,2,5 chessboard press together x,y pairs, buttons do x- x+ y- y+ (key 5 clicks, does nothing?) 1,1 -> 7,2 (2&4 22222) 1,1 -> 8,4 (2&4 2&4 2&4 2222) 1,1 -> 4,3 (2&4 2&4 2) 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. 099 1,2 make map of board grid 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 1,8 -> 2,5 via 23131324 4,5 -> 2,7 via 3142414 2,2 -> 6,7 via 242413 100 1,2 1 to 4 on compass distance 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, "" 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.
