    I can help you out here, if you remind me which level this was...

    I can't go back to a previously played level in the same game, and I don't really want to play through the first 11 levels again in a new game just to get here...

    So, can you post a screenshot — or a couple of screenshots panning the entire level if it's fairly big — and I'll get back to you...

    *** HERE IS A HINT ***

    OK, I don't remember if this is the first level in which "cracked floor tiles" appear, but the thing to note about cracked floor tiles is that they WILL support a weight, but only ONCE.
    So the important thing there is that the cracked floor tile will only completely break once you or an object moves OFF that tile. That's why merely pushing the crate ONTO the cracked tile will not make it sink immediately. The tile breaks when the crate moves OFF the tile, meaning you fall into the hole that has just now appeared.

    So, that's a hint. If you want to try and complete the level with that information, stop reading now.

    If you want a blatant solution, continue reading...

    *** HERE IS THE SOLUTION — SPOILER ALERT ***

    Move to the cracked tile near the bottom of the screen. Step on it once, then immediately take a step back to where you just were. The floor tile will now completely break. Go back and fetch the crate. Push it into the hole. Walk over the crate. Fetch the battery there. Stand on the green button to drop the raised tile at the top of the screen. Now you can fetch the battery there. Fetch the other batteries as normal. Go to the exit.

    THANK YOU! I feel quite like a dork for not figuring that out for myself, hahaha!
    But thank you, I was about to delete the game since I hit the 9-page limit already and so I'm not too patient with the games as I normally would be.

    Thank you again! :)

    No problem. :)
    Stick with it, it's a great game — but be patient, as the later levels can get quite tricky...

    So, did you go for the hint or the spoiler?

    The hint. :) Ha! :) I guess that makes me only half a dork! :p

    You finished the game? That's cool! And if you recommend it, I'll stick by it and see it through! :D

    Any Help on 46? or is it just tedious and precise shifting of the reflector blocks?
    I got stock on level 46 awhile ago, set down the game and forgot about it -lol-

    I think I remember that one, as, if it's the one I'm thinking of, I too had a bit of trouble with it at first... Scratched my head for ages over it! But as always, once you see the solution, it suddenly seems obvious and you wonder why you couldn't see it sooner... :rolleyes:

    Can you put up a screenshot of the level to remind me which one it is...

    its the one with all the fireballs down the middle

    is there any word that the developer will be adding new levels? cause this was a fun game, it would be sweet if there were more levels :)

    Aah yes, that is the one I'm thinking of.
    Did you want a hint or the solution?
    If you just want a hint, I'll say this... Start on the left. ;)
    If you want more than that, let me know...

    Well... supposedly, there will be more levels added, according to the developer himself... but he has been very quiet 'round here ever since he made that announcement some time ago...
    See this thread for more details:

    So did you want the step-by-step solution, or just more of a hint?

    OK, here's a hint... Use the laser to blast the 4 boxes in the order shown below. Exactly how to do that though is the trick.

    (Excuse the quick less-than-detailed sketch, but you should get the idea...)
