Challenge 1-1 – 1-10
Now that Papa Blox isn’t holding your hand anymore, it’s time for something a little more challenging. Challenge Levels 1-1 to 1-10 doesn’t introduce any new gadgets, instead you will finish mastering the techniques taught in the first 20 levels.
Challenge 1-1 is just a taste of the puzzles ahead, but is tame in comparison.
Continue sliding the blue block left until the green block falls on the last step. Don’t go any further, you’ll need it at this height. You can also take time to grab the yellow block, pull it out one space then slide it over two to line it up with the goal.
Grab the orange block and position it as seen in the above image. Now you can climb to the goal.
Challenge 1-2 is the first puzzle that stumped me for longer than five minutes. Looking back with the solution in hand makes it seem easy, but I found it tricky.
Grab the blue block and keeping sliding to the right until the yellow block falls down.
Pull the yellow block forward one space and slide it over in front of the green block. Now you should be able to reach the steps on the green block, but hold on…
…don’t forget to push the orange block (complete with the goal) behind the green block. Now you can climb to the top and complete the stage.
Challenge 1-3 involves a lot of strategic placement and pushing.
You need to pull the yellow block forward then slide it to the right. Slide the yellow block until you can only see 2 blocks. Now you can push the yellow block against the orange block which will cause two of the small blocks to fall and land inside the yellow block.
Next you want to pull the green block forward and slide it over to the yellow block. The action is similiar here, but instead you only want one block showing. Push the green block against the yellow block and watch the small block land inside the green block.
Now you can climb up to the top. This is what the final setup should look like.
This is what the setup looks like from behind!
This is one of my personal favourites.
You want to start by pulling the yellow L-shape block out and sliding it over to the green L-shaped block. Push the L-shaped block against the larger yellow block to collect the green L-shaped block.
Swing the camera around and go behind the puzzle. Slide the large yellow block over 3 or 4 spaces. Next, push the large yellow block forward to push the two L-shaped blocks up one space.
Now you need to move the L-shaped blocks over to pick up the last tiny L-shaped blocks. I did this by using the larger yellow block to push them over like you see in the image above. You can just push them over without the large yellow block, but you’re going to need that block again in a moment.
Once you have the blocks lined up to receive the small yellow L-shaped block, push the larger yellow block forward until the L-shaped block falls.
You will notice that you’ve created quite the fancy set of steps. Climb up and go for the goal.
This is another puzzle that had me stumped for a bit.
Start by pulling the yellow block out and slide it over 2 spaces.
Climb up the yellow block and jump to the green block. From here you should grab the side of the orange block and pull it off the green block.
You will land on the top step of the yellow block. From here you need to push the orange block forward one space.
Now you’ll be able to jump from the green block to the orange block and continue your ascent to the goal.
This puzzle requires a lot of what I like to call, back and forth.
Jump on the green block and pull the yellow block one space towards the goal.
Climb up the steps and jump over to the yellow block. Push the small orange block against the yellow block.
Jump on the orange block then push the yellow block towards the goal once. Now you have to rinse and repeat until you can jump to the goal.
I chose to do it this way, but you can push the blocks over one more space to make the jump easier.
Challenge 1-7 may look hard, but becomes ridiculously easy once you discover the trick.
Climb up the structure and push the orange block towards the green block, but only once, you don’t want to lose the orange block. Doing this will move the green block to the right one space and the goal closer, but you’re not finished yet.
Pull the orange block to the middle.
Jump on the orange block and walk to the other side. Now push the orange block once toward the goal. Now you can jump to the goal and complete the level.
Challenge 1-8 is somewhat similiar to Challenge 1-5.
Start by pulling the green block toward you one space.
Climb up to the yellow block and push the orange block to the left, but only by one space.
Swing the camera around to get this view. Now grab the green block and start sliding it over until you can climb onto it using the orange steps.
The final setup should look like this.
This is the second puzzle that had me stumped for a considerable amount of time.
Pull the orange block toward you then slide it over to the left. You want to line it up so that you’re only pushing against the two larger blocks. Doing this will cause the two small L-shaped blocks to fall.
Push the orange block aside for now. Grab the small yellow block and slide it to the left once.
Next you have to use the orange block again, but first, swing the camera around and push the green block to the right once. Now the yellow block should fall down one step like in the image above. Once you have that done, grab the orange block and bring it to the larger blocks. Now push the orange block against the large yellow block to push the setup once to the right. You will open a path to the finish by completing these steps.
This is what the setup will look like with the camera back in its original position.
This is another puzzle that stumped me, but discovering the solution was satisfying.
Pull the blue block forward and position it under the yellow block. Push the small block toward the green and orange blocks to receive the yellow block.
Grab the green block from the side and push it forward until it lines up with the blue and yellow block like so.
Swing the camera around and pull the orange block to the right. Go behind the orange block and push it to the right. Now you’ll have an empty spot to place the yellow block.
Grab the yellow block and pull it onto the green block, it will be a snug fit.
Swing the camera back around to the original position. Pull the blue block over until you can reach the final stairway for the first set of challenge levels.
