Pakoon III

This just came out last night for free. It's a pretty well made puzzle. It reminds me a little of Lemmings. Only a little though. The concept is a lot different. You have to get a group of chicks to exits by blowing stuff up. There's even a little chick gore (When stuff falls on them, they kind of splatter).

It's pretty hard too. I'm surprised it's free. I hope it doesn't get overlooked.

I picked this one up as well this morning.
The same thought crossed my mind (the reminder of Lemmings). Haven't had a chance to try it yet but I loved Lemmings back in the day...

Edit: Ok, tried it...snuck a peak at work. You're right NotYou, only a little like Lemmings...
And yeah, it's totally hard...can't get past level 6!!

I tried it but I couldn't get past level 6 either. Anyone has a hint for that?

Is the first click supposed to be a wooden crate or a brick wall?
And the second click?
And the third?

Maybe with a hint like "wood, brick, brick" I can get there.

Oh! I already solved it. Honestly, I spend quite some time on it a few hours ago. But now, a minute after posting, I figure it out.

SPOILER FOR LEVEL 6 HERE.
Simply click all the wooden crates: top, right and left. The explosion will push the spikes away.
END SPOILER.

I'm stuck at level 8, 10, 12. But I solved level 26

So far a cute and polished game - and that's for free!

I think everyone will get stuck on level 6 if they don't read the instructions. Once I read the instructions it was just a matter of time to solve it. Great free game. Think though appeals to the more hardcore puzzle solvers than the casual ones though.

I got really stuck on level 8, but the next three or four levels were easy and only took a few seconds. Maybe it's just me.

Did anyone else get stuck on 8?

I got pretty far actually (like level 16?) I haven't skipped any though. It's pretty challenging.
