This is a clever multi-level puzzle game I found.

It's pretty hard to beat without using the hints.

Welcome to the Lateral Puzzles Forum, Eats. I think that I ought to tell you something, though, before you get shot down in flames. Here we do lateral thinking puzzles (see the FAQs at the top of the bulletin for more info), not what you've given us a link to. Though logic puzzles are excellent (my favourites, next to laterals) you should not post them here. Instead, create a lateral puzzle of your own for us all to try to solve.

Although this isn't a forum for the kind of puzzle that Eats has linked to, I don't see any harm in leaving the link here for a while. After all, I don't have a flame-thrower.

from his link you type in what it tells you - shambler.net/puzzone/waste.php then you just keep solving the clues and you replace where it says waste with the answer to get to the next page

I hit a total blank on puzzle 8 I think it was though

Damia thanks for the help - I can't see how you worked that out!

Anyway I can return the favour - here is a hint below for question 8 which is a lateral puzzle actually.

Hint: Chess

I might need your help on the others!

This is pretty a pretty interesting puzzle actually The host said he "found" the puzzle, but I think it was actually created by the host of this puzzle--Paul Fisch. I googled the name Paul Fisch and I think his nickname is shambler, but I could be wrong... anyway, I do like the puzzle but I myself am stuck on number 12 (regarding the gnomes)...I have tried everything but my mind is blank on this one...

Yes, I assumed that the host was the author (advertising his site) :-)

I'm currently stuck on the gnomes but it is number 11. Is number 12 about gnomes too ?!

Puzzle 12

Hint 1: You are looking for the missing word

Hint 2: Find the missing word here: "so sitting lawn gnomes --- vacation"

(Sometimes we can't see the wood for the trees - let me know if you need a further hint)

Booklover

Look at the words at the top, and then you need to work out what word from the sentence lower down is missing.

16 eh!

Could you give me a very gentle hint for number 12. Find the commonality? i.e. is it a four letter word that has commonality with all of the other words?
(I'm not entirely sure I understand the question.)

If I get to 16 I'll give you a hand :-)

yeah I didn't really get the commonality bit, I just tried what I've hinted below, and it happened to work

12 hint look at the words on the page, and think of one of them in another form, so like you've got: do does done, do something similar with one of the other words on the page

Damia - Thanks.

I'm on puzzle 15 but only one of the images is familiar.

The one I know is Mario. Do you know the names of the others?

I did pretty well until I got to 15--with the squid and mushroom...I know they are with Mario, but I'm not sure how to combine the two.

Level 15 Hint: The squid is a Mario enemy. Combine him with the mushroom and he becomes a super enemy. I found the name of both enemies by looking through Google.

I've never played Mario - I must be mad.

I got level 15, but I haven't really tried level 16 again since I hit a blank. I assume its similar to 15, but hit a load of blanks trying it, any hints on that one?
