this game's free on Google Play with 1,99 IAP to remove ads, so if you want to try it before you buy it, that's the possibility..

and it's great by the way.. first few puzzles are nice and finding solution is smooth and effortless, feels just right. currently I'm stuck at the puzzle with alphabet keypad and after trying to touch everything and type every possible word I just typed FU*K out of frustration and the crane appeared for a second ... but that's just it.. from there I sweared like a sailor but nothing else worked, so I'm still stuck there not complaining, just saying.. and I'm really looking forward to find the solution, that's the point I guess, right?

Well I've partly completed that word puzzle, here's a clue: it is a word you need to type not a code and another one if the previous one doesn't help: you need to type more than one word but you will know when you have got the first one correct.

But I can't work out what the "right" word to type next is...

I'm still stuck there. There are literally thousands of possible words with four letters and without any clue it's basicly impossible to find out the right ones considering there's more of them needed. If there was at least a clue about the category we're supposed be in, but for now it could be pretty much anything. It doesn't feel like a puzzle anymore. Just typing different words. It's nothing to think about, just hit or miss. I'm afraid I'm done with it.

I actually liked that level, but later levels get ridiculously stupid, where you wouldn't think of something without the hint. Game was a mixed bag for me.

really? so you've been randomly putting 4-letter words there until something worked? or am I missing something?

I wouldn't say randomly. I remembered the screenshot from the App Store for that level, so I knew what it was about, and then tried to think of words that could get the job done. There was one that was particularly tricky, but being limited to four letters (and the lack of a V) kept the possibilities limited.

I loved that level.
It was easier for me but here is some help.

Think about what you want the thing to do.
Hit the hint question mark. It contains the word down. Start with that word maybe. It should come to you after that. If not I can help more.



By the way this is the only puzzle game
Besides agent a that I've ever liked a lot.
I ever thought I would say I actually really like these games but this is one of the best
