    Re: Free the balloon

    Cheat sheet for level 1
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1/ Open the door by the bell
    2/ Click on the man sitting on the crane
    3/ Click on the button to pick up the explosives
    4/ Click the lever
    5/ Click on the "gun" to fire a ball that will cause the explosives to be dropped releasing one end of the balloon
    6/ Click the lever & then the button & then the lever again to pick up second explosives and leave them over telegraph pole
    7/ Click on the electrical box to overload the bulb and then quickly click on the button to drop the explosives before the second end of the balloon is released</span hide>

    Level 2 is easy.

    After doing level 3, I'm almost glad there isn't a level 4 (yet)! <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15>

    Re: Free the balloon

    done level 1 and 2. I found the pivot bar (and blew it up a few times) but that is about it. I cannot get the forklift truck to do much but I did shoot some baskets.

    I think what you need to know is that <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">you can click on the actual lift of the forklift as well as on the lever and button.</span hide>

    Re: Free the balloon

    this is getting really annoying. I can appriciate that it would be better if I found the solution myself but <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Anyway, this is what I have found ...
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">
    <UL><LI>guy playing basket ball - doesn't appear to do anything
    <LI>button just about basket ball guy's head - doesn't appear to do anything
    <LI>button up the top near the light - doesnt' appear to do anything
    <LI>guy letting out boxes (3 crates, 2 red exploding boxes, rest brown boxes that break)
    <LI>wooden plank under belt - swings and can hit red boxes onto platform - other boxes ignore it
    <LI>guy with fork lift - I can drive forward, backward, i can raise and lower the lift, i can click on the lift (doesn't appear to do anything)
    <LI>i cannot get the lift under the boxes, if I put the lift where the boxes land they break my lift
    <LI>i can raise and lower through the lift the boxes if I click in the raise button while the box is falling[/list]</span hide>
    What I think I need to do is ...

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"><UL><LI>clear the boxes on the right out of the way (somehow)
    <LI>know a red box over to the boxes on the left
    <LI>get one of those boxes to fall onto the spring thing (above basketball guy)
    <LI>press the button near the spring thing that throws the box up to the top platform, that knocks the other red box down and ...[/list]</span hide>

    So, how close am I?

    Interesting observations. A little hint or two.
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The man at the bottom needs to get onto the fork lift, you need to get him past the various boxes and onto the "spring thing"</span hide>

    Not very! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> although you are right about the ball.
    You need to think about:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">the little man needs to get up to the top but will only climb one box</span hide>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">you have access to explosives</span hide>
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">forklifts can lift other stuff besides boxes as long as the other stuff is in the right place</span hide>
    does that help?
    Regards,
    Rory
