Check this out! It's a fun little puzzle game I stumbled upon, which works a little bit like those falling sand games. The objective is to get the "sugar" into the cup.

It seems trivial at first, but some of the later puzzles are pretty tough!

At least I have had a few questions answered

Nice find Garrett!

Egads! I absolutely cannot get past level 12. What's your (general) high score? This game is very entertaining. It's addictive, but I have no problem leaving in the middle of the game. Thanks for introducing it!

Level 12 is a pretty irritating one, and after a hundred times I got past it. It's a great game, and I'm wondering if the theme of the game has anything to do with the naming of a certain programming language. Clever, though. Not your everyday twisty on a sand game.

Level 12 is hard, but some are much more hard than this

Yeah, level 12 took a little while... but a little later, level 18 was several times worse. Finished that one just now... and then... :shock: Level 19!!! I don't know where to start! :lol: There's no gravity switch to hold some sugar for a while (like on other levels) :shock: and several sugar-paths will have to cross! :lol: EDIT: sugar can be colored more than once! No problem! :lol:

Thanks Garrett for making me waste one hour this morning! :wink:

You have to fill the red, then blue, then green, then purple or it'll be hard. Essentially, get a ramp that dumps everything into the middle, then have another ramp that picks most of it up and carries it to red (make sure you leave a gap between that ramp and the red cup). Once the red fills, it'll block off and all the extra sugar will pour to the right (if you block off the left) and you just need to direct that into the blue filter then the blue cup.

Now you need to basically sever the left side and focus on the green. do green similar to red, and you should be fine.

Now with purple, because the white sugar is going to be pouring past the purple and will have to loop back, your best bet is to make it so that the sugar is freefalling above the left edge of the cup. some will go in, and the rest you make go down to the purple filter, and dump in with the white sugar. Slowly, you should fill up the purple, but there is a limit on this level for amount of sugar (its fairly high, but you dump a lot of white into the purple) so try to do the first three cups efficently.

Funny, I did it in a different order: purple, green, red and finally blue. :wink:

It's a mess, but it worked.
