Even though you already completed level 83, i thought i would respond to you question about the block...it may help you raise your score, if you haven't aleady discovered the trick.

When pushing the block into the first kite-filled room, push it just one square inside the door. When the first kite hits, advance the block one square till the next kite hits, and repeat until all the kites have hit the block. This takes a little practice and timing, but it can be done. Now the kites will be following each other in a straight line. Push the block just to the left of the "safe dirt" square, and when you have a chance, push it down one square. All the kites will hit the block and go down in a neat little line to explode the bombs.

You can pick up a lot of seconds on your time for this level using that technique.

Good luck.

Great score! GREAT SCORE!!

Kathy,

Makes me feel useful to give you a tip or two!

Re: Level 83

Alice's suggestion is a slick one. What you do is slide the block in one movement, tile by tile, catching each glider as it arrives.----Then quickly as the last one goes by, push the block down one tile to catch tje gliders as they fly by rt . to lft. They'll march right down in a nice little row, as Alice said. Get rady to follow them right down with the block. BTW, use the same method at the end.

Somehow or other I managed to increase my time on: Level 83 to 294.

HINT:

Used Alices'slick way of dealing with the first set of gliders. Followed straight down the chute and went directly to the block that I would need to enter lower right "room" ~collecting the 2 lower and 2 upper chips on the way. Then risking life and limb, I charged into the room pushing the block just in time to catch the last two blocks as they sailed by the bombs~thus allowing me to collect the chips and exit the lower exit, collect the last 4 chips and high tail it for home! All the while remembering Christina's advice to just be brave and just charge ahead

Lets not forget to give Chips a whirl now and again!

hehe...ok, i made the 296!

Naturally, i put my own spin on it. I pick up the chips in the left most room before pushing the block into the final bomb. it just seems to work out that way.

I have a few more thoughts on how to get an extra ounce out of these levels. Will write more when i have more time.
